The Biggest Disasters On Grey's Anatomy

The Biggest Ever Catastrophes To Hit Grey's Anatomy

Originally posted 03/28/2015 08:50AM

Sure, the doctors on Grey's Anatomy are all touted as the best in their fields. So when they're faced with the umpteenth catastrophe to hit Seattle (a ferry crash! a shooting! an earthquake!), it begs the question: Why don't they all make like Addison and head south for sunny Los Angeles?

But, for better or for worse, over the past ten years, the surgeons at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital (once known as Seattle Grace Mercy West and before that, simply Seattle Grace) have stuck around through an endless series of disasters.

Here are just a few of the most traumatic incidents Meredith Grey and company have have been put through over the last decade:

The Train Crash
In the Grey's Anatomy version of Seattle, the city has a bit of crash problem, no matter the vehicle. The train crash in season 2 was particularly gruesome. A number of casualties come pouring through Seattle Grace's doors, but the most memorable was Bonnie and Tom, two strangers with a pole struck through their middles. As Bonnie's injuries were more severe than Tom's, she died shortly after after the doctors removed the pole.

Everyone comes to Olivia Pope for advice: Her friends. Her co-workers. The president of the United States. Politicians in trouble, recovering assassins, her own kidnapper while trying to leverage an online bidding war for her freedom.

And even Kerry Washington, the Emmy-nominated actress who plays her.

"I don't think I consciously say, 'What would Olivia Pope do?' but there's a new thread of belief in my own capacity that I think comes from her," the Scandal star says in April issue of Marie Claire, on stands March 24. "She makes it happen. She figures it out. She fixes it."

Each week, Shonda Rhimes offers up three solid hours of Anatomy, Scandal and Murder – a new block of must-see TV. If you're not SPOILER-averse, check out Shondaland's hot-button moments below, which we've ranked from least to most shocking.

5. Grey's Anatomy: An M.D. with a Pretty Loose Definition of the Word "Emergency"
In "All I Could Do Was Cry," Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) spent the entire episode running around trying to find a doctor to replace her and a babysitter for the weekend so that she could fly to Washington, D.C., and have "emergency sex" with Derek (Patrick Dempsey). We get it, he's (Mc)Dreamy, and you've had a rough patch in your marriage, but this is a series that depicts serious love and loss (keep reading). As self-involved as Mer has been over the years, this was a low.

4. How to Get Away with Murder: "Incest Is Best ...?"
It's been obvious since her first appearance that Hannah Keating (Marcia Gay Harden) was an about-to-boil-over pot of resentment and repression, but when police came knocking in "She's a Murderer" to tell her sister-in-law Annalise that the man they shared (Annalise's husband, Hannah's brother) was confirmed dead, things got ugly. Hannah cried "Murder!" and Annalise accused Hannah of loving her brother a little too much.

5. How to Get Away with Murder: Scratch That
Oh, how far Wes (Alfred Enoch) has come from that bumbling first day of law school. Two shots in "Best Christmas Ever" zeroed in on the deep, handmade grooves in the wall above his bed and implied there might be more to those notches than we previously thought. As the Keating Five slowly lost their minds under the stress of keeping the huge secret of Sam's (Tom Verica) murder, Wes was clearly impacted most of all. Now that Sam's body has been found, how much deeper into madness can our beloved naïf plunge?

4. Scandal: Nichols & Dimed Out
Surprise! "Where's the Black Lady" revealed that Vice President Andrew Nichols (Jon Tenney) – whose relationship with Mellie (Bellamy Young) we used to ship so hard – is the evil genius behind Olivia's kidnapping. His plan? Hold Liv (Kerry Washington) in indefinite captivity, exploiting the desperate love of POTUS Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and push the president toward a super Conservative political agenda. When Liv realized that Fitz declaring war still wouldn't be enough for Andrew to let her go, she manipulated Ian (Jason Butler Harner) into selling her to the "highest bidder" instead. Touché, Ms. Pope.
