the series captured the essence of a holiday honoring the dead on Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 6.
It resulted in a touching tribute to past characters, some background on Link, and a smoking hot kiss between Nico and Levi.
Join TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Rachelle Lewis, Paul Dailly, and Kim Russell as they discuss the hour!
On a scale of 1-10, how emotional did this episode (and that tribute) make you?
Stacy: 10 for the tribute alone. It took me by surprise and was a touching thank you to the longtime fans. I definitely had tears in my eyes.
It was great to see George, Lexie, Derek, etc., again, but the fact that they even included Doc the dog sent me over the edge. I also thought the Spanish version of "Chasing Cars" was a nice touch.
Rachelle: 10. The tribute was phenomenal. I could not stop crying. It was such a touching surprise to see those that are gone come back and prove that people you lose are never truly gone.
I also agree, the Spanish version of “Chasing Cars” was a great addition. I think without the tribute, the episode as a whole would not have been as good. It would have been more like a 7. The tribute amped up the emotional factor for me.

Paul: 10. It was stunning, surprising, and heartwarming. All of those callbacks were great, and I love that this show constantly honors the past because it wouldn't have gone as long as it has done if some of these characters were not part of the narrative.
Kim: 5. I thought it was great, and I loved seeing everyone again, but it didn't bring me to tears. It may be just me, though, I might be all cried out from saying goodbye to Rick Grimes.
Did you understand Meredith's reaction to the news about Thatcher? Do you think she'll go see him?
Stacy: Yeah, I understood it. She's not close with her dad and hasn't even spoken to him since Lexie died. I do think she will see him. She may not think she needs to, but she also couldn't stop talking about him, which means she's going to regret it if she doesn't.
Rachelle: 100%. I thought it was perfect for her character. She barely knows him, and he has never made any effort with her.
I agree with Stacy that Meredith will go see him. I think she will need that closure. Right now, she doesn’t think she does, but I think she will realize if she doesn’t go it will haunt her.
Paul: Yeah, she was justified. I liked that she turned to those nearest to her for some assistance. I do think she'll visit him because she has a lot she wants to say.
Kim: Yes, her reaction was not only completely Meredith but understandable.
No, I don't think she'll go see him, and I don't think she'll regret it either. She's Mer and hardly second guesses herself. She might pay for it later, but I don't think so because she wrote him off long ago.
