We already knew this would be a tough night, given that last week we found out the new girlfriend Callie can't stop gushing about was one of the doctors on call the night Derek died. Then and there, we acknowledged that Meredith's a better woman than us for inviting them in and that this will quite possibly be the most awkward dinner party to ever go down in history.
And, well, it was. It was also gut-wrenching, heart-stopping and what I'm trying to say is Shonda Rhimes nearly killed us with feels, you guys.
Something tells us there is not enough wine in the world to cushion the pain Shonda Rhimes is about to inflict upon our feels.
Is she seriously inviting them in right now? Meredith is a champ for pushing through those emotions. Meanwhile, could someone pass a box of tissues?
Oh, honey. If you were here, I'd pull you in close for a big hug.
Thanks to the teaser trailer for this week, we realize this statement is pretty prophetic — and it has nothing to do with the food.
Cristina Yang will always be Grey's No. 1 person, but Alex has earned his rightful spot as the dude version of Yang.
Step away from the margarita machine, Mer. Just walk away slowly.
Oh, God. Is this about to go down? We're not ready. Better finish off the ol' wine
Seriously, how did she think this conversation was going to play out?
No, not deathbed Derek. Anything but deathbed Derek! Curse you, Shonda Rhimes. Curse you!
She has been knockin' boots with the hot new resident. Could she be? Wait, what are we saying? It takes longer than, like, one episode to feel the effects of a baby on your bladder. So what's up?
Ahhh, 'tis but a case of a raging UTI. Somehow, that's better in this instance.
If you're going to bust in on a woman in the bathroom and pee in front of her, the least you could do is ask her why she's hunkered down there in the first place.
This will not end well.
Jackson, my man.
Not to sound like a total shipper, but if Calzona can't be a thing, then Japril must. They can't take all our fun away.
The secondhand embarrassment was strong in this moment. On the plus side, it meant we got to see Dr. McTasty's face again.
She won't leave her there. She can't. Oh, sweet heavens, she's definitely going to leave Penny there with Meredith. Someone cover my eyes for me so I can use my hands to grab my wine glass.
Surely this very conversation will be seared into Callie's brain for all eternity once she discovers the weight of what she just asked of Meredith.
This is a no-brainer, really. But this is TV, which means at precisely the moment things are starting to make sense is when we know to expect all hell to break loose.
This cannot happen. Can it? Wait, no. Definitely not. Who's in charge of paperwork at Grey Sloan, because they need to get a pink slip and/or throat punch.
And now the secondhand heartbreak is real, too.
She did it — Meredith just dropped a truth bomb all up in the middle of that dinner party. We are gutted.
After taking a breath, of course, since you realized during the commercial break you had actually stopping inhaling air into your lungs after Mer's outburst.
Sure, she can be a little self-absorbed, but she was Derek's sister (not to mention, she's adorable). She deserves this freak out! Get her, girl.
There are no words. Only tears.
Seriously, though, we cannot fathom the thought process that brought her to the conclusion she should apply for residency at the very hospital the man she sort-of killed worked. Guuurrrl.
C'mon. He tells her that her dinner was excellent. He defends her. He tries to make her feel better. They are still totally in love, you guys!
Wonder if the crew got to eat it. Those mashed potatoes looked amazing.
Listen, we all love Callie and she didn't know what she was doing when she brought Penny. But Mer still has a right to drown her anger in tequila with Alex.
We cannot process this information without drinking copious amounts more wine while clutching our crocheted cat pillows and rocking back and forth quietly.
