'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16: Will THIS Character Really Make It?
It's Halloween at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital and things are getting spooky - death surrounds the new episode. Die hard fans know that there have been numerous emotional deaths ever since 2005. Will Grey's Anatomy fans possibly have to mourn the death of another character soon? Caution: spoilers for season 16!
Through 15 seasons of Grey's Anatomy, fans had to go through a lot. The series is known for dramatic deaths of its characters. Some fans of the show fear that another character could die in the 16th season.
Caution: This text contains spoilers for season 16 of Grey's Anatomy. Do not read on if you are not caught up on season 16.
The character fans are currently worried about is "Meredith Grey's" (Ellen Pompeo, 49) daughter "Zola" (Aniela Gumbs, 10). Her oldest childr recently needed a shunt revision for her spina bifida.
As a result, "Zola" recently had to undergo emergency surgery in the previous episode. The procedure was successful and apparently without complications - but this does not reassure long-time fans.
Grey's Anatomy fans fear that "Zola" might not be fine
Many have voiced their opinions on Twitter and are doubting that everything went as smooth as it might have seemed. The past 15 seasons have - truly - been a cautionary tale which is way their fears could surely be justified. With Grey's, you can just never be sure...
Yeah, I'm not celebrating Zola's successful surgery just yet. I'm not new, I've been at this for 16 seasons now. #GreysAnatomy— Ashley Kline (@ashleyewalters) October 25, 2019
"Meredith Grey" has been part of the successful series from the beginning. Over the years, she's had to cope with the loss of some close friends and relatives. Fans hope that "Meredith" doesn't have to lose her daughter as well!
Ellen Pompeo has already expressed her thoughts on a possible end of the show: "I would love to have some of the old cast come back, the original cast[...]. That would be the most amazing day," the actress revealed on The Late Late Show with James Corden this summer. To what extent this is possible remains questionable, as numerous characters have died. Former favorites like "Derek Shepherd" (Patrick Dempsey, 53), "Mark Sloan" (Eric Dane, 46), "Lexi Grey" (Chyler Leigh, 37) and "George O'Malley" (T.R. Knight, 46) won't be able to make a comeback...
Episode 6 of season 16 ("Whistlin' Past the Graveyard") of Grey's Anatomy airs Thursdays (tonight!) at 8pm (7 central) on ABC.
