Grey’s Anatomy fans admit they “cry” at the cliffhanger finale as Meredith returns for an emotional ending
ELLEN Pompeo returned to Grey’s Anatomy for the season finale, much to the delight of many fans.
Ellen, who plays Meredith Grey, made her long-awaited reprise on May 18th.
As a result, Meredith reunited with the other doctors at Gray Sloan Memorial in Boston.
Most notable was her reunion with Nick Marsh, played by Scott Speedman, who told her he loved her just before she left the show.
After seeing each other throughout the day, Meredith visited Nick’s hotel room and slipped a letter under his door, but he came out of the room to speak to her before she could leave.
She referenced the time she was walking away when Nick told her he loved her, explaining: “I pretended I didn’t hear you. I was tired and scared and overwhelmed.”
“And I know that sounds silly, but I figured that I should focus on the kids at that moment, so I did… and as you can see, I’m still tired and scared and overwhelmed. But I miss you.”
The duo talk about how Nick visited Meredith’s house earlier that day and he admitted, “I went to your house to tell you I should never have let you go.”
“And to say that I want to live my life with love… and with you.”
The new couple then shared a passionate kiss in the hotel hallway, prompting many long-time viewers of the TV show to celebrate their happy ending.

Where did Meredith go?
Meredith Gray was officially dropped from the cast mid-season 19, having been with the series since its inception in 2005.
The character left the series when she took a job in Boston, Massachusetts, thereby separating her from the rest of the cast who worked in Seattle.
However, she remained on board as executive producer and was hired to complete the season as voice actress for the series.
Ellen spoke to Drew Barrymore about her decision to leave the show on a December episode of The Drew Barrymore Show.
She said: “I feel super lucky but listen, the show was amazing for me and I really enjoyed the experience.”
“Look, I just have to mess it up a little.”
The 19-season show’s lead actress pointed out that most people only have their kids around the house for the first 18 years.
She likened herself to a growing kid, saying leaving the show was tantamount to “going to college.”
