Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Premiere Recap: Riggs Proposes, Amelia's Tumor...
Need help processing the Grey's Anatomy Season 14 premiere? We've got you covered!
Can we talk about that premiere, Grey's fans? Because the Grey's Anatomy Season 14 premiere episodes, "Break Down the House" and "Get Off on the Pain", were absolutely epic. Not only did it give us hardcore vintage Grey's vibes, the drama itself was also too freaking good. We laughed. We cried. We were devastated. We were heartbroken. We were nostalgic. We were hooked. The Shondaland team definitely brought the thunder. To say we are excited for the rest of Season 14 would be an understatement. You're starting off strong, Grey's Anatomy Season 14! So, if you want to relive or catch up with the Grey Sloan drama, here's our Grey's Anatomy Season 14 premiere recap for the best highlights.
Megan Hunt Is Back And She Has A Kid
Before you freak out, don't worry. Megan Hunt's (Abigail Spencer) kid doesn't belong to Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson). Megan took a Syrian refuge as her own after his parents were killed in combat. However, Megan also wishes to return to Iraq for him after she recovers.
Stephanie Edwards Was Airlifted To Texas
So, we didn't get the goodbye we wanted. In fact, we didn't get a goodbye from Stephanie Edwards (Jerrika Hinton) in the Season 14 premiere at all. Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) briefly told Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) that Edwards was moved to a burn center in Texas, and that was the last we heard of her whereabouts. However, Jo was looking for a new "person" throughout the entire episode, and she seemed to have found that in a reluctant Ben Warren (Jason George).
Teddy Altman Returned And Owen Hunt KISSED Her
Teddy Altman's (Kim Raver) return was exciting for everyone involved. Probably one of the funniest moments of the entire finale was her reunion with Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) who suddenly spilled all her secrets, from her divorce with Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) to the custody battle.
Many Towen fans were then resurrected later in the episode when Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) went in and freaking kissed Teddy on the mouth after his sister's surgery. While Teddy recognized that Owen was vulnerable at the moment and wouldn't want to get together while he was married, we can't help but wonder if this was just fanservice or if Teddy/Owen is really endgame.
Nathan Riggs Proposed To Megan
In other incredibly awkward news, Riggs decided it was a good time to propose to Megan right when Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), the woman who he was previously sleeping with, walked into the room. It was an incredibly uncomfortable moment for everyone, including the audience.
Arizona Robbins Moved On From Eliza Minnick REAL Quick
While it was sad to see Arizona ghosted by Eliza Minnick (Marika Domińczyk), it was almost comical that our girl just bounced right back with a girl at the bar. And whoops! That girl at the bar just happened to be Andrew DeLuca's (Giacomo Gianniotti) sister!
Andrew DeLuca's Sister Came To Town For A Female Masturbation Study
Not only was the arrival of DeLuca's sister, Carina DeLuca (Stefania Spampinato), hilarious, it was also incredibly awesome. Andrew and Carina suddenly burst into Italian. And to be honest, Andrew was a total babe when he spoke in a foreign tongue.
Anyway, Carina came to the hospital to pitch a controversial study regarding female masturbation. As an advocate for women's health, I applaud both Carina and showrunner Shonda Rhimes for bringing up this topic. Regardless, her study brings up an important discovery for another major Grey's character.
Maggie Pierce Confronted Jackson Avery AND Nathan Riggs
We haven't seen Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) really shine since she got on the Grey's Anatomy scene, but she was delightfully real during the Season 14 premiere. She told her truth when it came to keeping secrets and wanting to know the truth when it came to Meredith and Riggs hooking up in Season 13. Then, she finally confronted Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) about what April Kepner (Sarah Drew) said to her during the Season 13 finale. However, it looks like she took things the wrong way again because it's clear to us that Jackson totally likes her. But, we're not so sure that Maggie thinks the same way.
Then April Kepner Confronted Jackson And Then KILLED Japril
Sorry, Japril fans. It looks like Jaggie is really happening. Jackson asked April about the whole situation, and she confronted him about what happened in Montana. You know, Japril The Sequel. April told him that she was hurt and she decided to move out. Looks like Japril is officially over at least for now. Looks like Jackson has some decisions to make in the coming episodes.
Jo Wilson Hooked Up With A Random Intern, But Ended Up With Alex Karev
We got some major flashbacks to Grey's Anatomy Season 1 with the new batch of terrible interns, and just like true Grey's fashion, one of the interns hooked up with a resident. And that resident was Jo. However, she seemed to do it out of her feelings for Karev. Very complicated, we know. But, at least, in the end, JoLex lived on! Yes! Alex and Jo got back together in the Season 14 premiere and it was too stinkin' adorable!
Meredith Grey Was A Complete Badass
Did we mention that this episode reminded us of old episodes? Like serious Season 1 and 2 vibes. Meredith was a complete surgical genius throughout this episode, despite a minor setback. But, hey, drama, right? Meredith was able to fix Megan's bowel with an abdominal transplant and keep her cool when it came to her ex. Yaaas, Meredith. You go, girl!
Amelia Shepherd Has A Brain Tumor That Only Derek Could Fix
Remember when we mentioned that Carina DeLuca made a major discovery about a character? That person is Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone). YUP. She took part in Carina's study and found out that she had a massive brain tumor in the process. We're pretty upset, considering it seems like a tumor that only her dead brother, Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) could fix. Well, someone had to say it.
