Unless I'm there to ogle the ridiculously attractive staff or eavesdrop on all the juicy drama, I would never step foot into Grey Sloan Memorial.
Grey's Anatomy loves the hell out of a good storm, and with them comes a lot of angst, drama, and lust. Because for whatever reason, storms are super sexy, too.
On Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 8 there was a healthy dose of sexy, but the drama of it all! How long do we have to wait for the series to return?!
Meredith was a good daughter for picking her pseudo-dad up from the slammer after his justifiable outburst at that trashy bar. She's not the judgy person, but she did express her concern for Richard. She knew he wasn't taking care of himself or going to meetings after Ollie's death.
Now he caught a case at a bar no less. There was ample reason to be concerned. Meredith has a way of advising people and letting them have it a bit without attacking them. It's one of her best traits.

Where she failed him was by not telling him about Catherine or at least prodding him to talk to his wife, or check all of his messages, or something, anything!
Mer broke the news to Maggie, which was inevitable, and referenced them being even after Maggie's HIPAA faux pas, but she didn't give Richard any heads up. Scuttlebug spreads like crazy at that hospital. Most of the people there couldn't hold water if you gave them a cup.
Mer: Are you OK.
Richard: I lost control, Meredith. I was angry.
Permalink: I lost control, Meredith. I was angry. Added: November 15, 2018 Since she already told Maggie, and she knew Maggie would be the one to break it to Jackson (while I'm sure a bunch of you are ready to go in on Maggie for telling Jackson, Meredith had to have known Maggie would spill the beans), why couldn't she tell Richard too?
It would have paralleled him telling her about Thatcher. If not Catherine herself, who better to tell him the news?
As it stands, he's going to be the last in his family to know about his wife's condition, and he's worried that Catherine is having an affair with Tom. Given what we know about Tom and Catherine's relationship, it sounds absurd just hearing him consider it!
Richard deserved better than that. It's also disconcerting and ominous that Miranda mentioned sharing his arrest with the medical board, and she had something to tell him before he sidetracked her with his affair theory.
What was she going to tell him? It's doubtful that she knew about Catherine at that point, and she didn't intend to discuss her sabbatical from Ben. Could it have had something to do with little Pancake or did it have something to do with his medical license being in jeopardy?
If Richard Webber can no longer practice medicine, they need to end the show right now. That would be unacceptable, unles..
