'Grey's Anatomy' Creator Shonda Rhimes Speaks Out on Jerrika Hinton's Departure

Matthew Morrison

Thursday night's season finale of Grey's Anatomy was, naturally, an emotional one.

In the finale, Stephanie survived the initial explosion that had Grey Sloan Memorial in chaos as her fellow doctors scrambled to find her and save their patients.

The harrowing experience - coupled with her history as a sick child - made her realized she didn't want to spend any more time in hospitals.

Thus, Stephanie walked away with the rarest of "Grey's Anatomy" endings: something not completely horrific or tragic or heartbreaking.

After making it through a fire at the medical institution, Edwards, played by actress Jerrika Hinton, told Dr. Richard Webber (played by James Pickens, Jr.): 'I spent my whole life in hospitals, my whole life.

In the penultimate episode of season 13, Keith, a man accused of rape, was on the loose in the hospital and holding Stephanie Edwards (Jerrika Hinton) at knifepoint as he attempted to escape.

"Because I have a feeling you like him, so why don't you just tell him?"

Hinton said Rhimes 'was very supportive of [her] wishes, ' and that she was 'eternally grateful to her for understanding'.

Meanwhile, Owen Hunt's (Kevin McKidd) sister, Megan (Bridge Regan), has arrived and has caused quite a stir. He and Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) watched on as Megan was put on a gurney and transported through a helicopter in to Washington.

A new love triangle is also set to simmer between Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary), Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams), and April Kepner (Sarah Drew). Apparently, April noticed her ex-husband giving Maggie a look only she would know of (having been married to him and all), and subsequently confronted Maggie about it afterward. But Maggie was either in denial or confused as to why April even suggested such a thing: "No, he doesn't". April's response was telling: "Because I have a feeling you like him, so why don't you just tell him?"

What did you think of the season finale of Grey's?

"No one can interweave the jeopardy firefighters face in the line of duty with the drama in their personal lives quite like Shonda, and Grey's signature Seattle setting is the flawless backdrop for this exciting spinoff", said ABC president Channing Dungey as part of the official announcement.
