Grey’s Anatomy Season 19 Episode 17: Release Date, Recap & Speculation

Love is in the air – but it’s like poison to some of our members at Grey Sloan Hospital. Amelia’s abandonment issues cause her to lash out at her colleagues, but Addison pulls her aside and sets her straight. The head doctor even helps Bailey after an incident and emerges as this week’s hero! 

Jo apologizes to Link for her awful behavior after Luna’s condition is written off as a fluke, and Lucas steps down from Simone’s Man of Honor position. He hands it to Jules, who is afraid to entertain Blue’s crush because of her checkered past with failed love. What will come in the next episode of Grey’s Anatomy?

1. Episode 17 Synopsis/Speculation

Teddy calls an emergency meeting to discuss the intern program; Link wrestles with his own self-doubt as he preps for a massive surgery; Nick shares some much-needed guidance with a struggling Lucas.

Bailey’s fight with the pro-life protestors took a dangerous turn this week, and though Addison took the “kind” path to deter them, I fear that this matter is not over yet. If one of them can fake an emergency to get facetime with Bailey, then others can do so too.

Link and Jo might have made up after the whole Luna situation, but he has other worries already waiting at his doorstep. His first big surgery is upon him, and his self-doubt is already eating him alive. Will he be able to pull through?

Taryn calling out Teddy about Mika’s situation avails him to call an emergency meeting to discuss the intern program, but will they be able to make a difference before Mika burns all out?

Lucas and Jules are in an impossible situation, both unable to confess their love. But what will their fate be in the upcoming episodes of Grey’s Anatomy?

Amelia’s outbursts after Kai’s departure were predictable, but will the meetings really help her? And what is causing Webber to spiral as he joins Amelia for the session? God, I can’t believe I have to wait till the next episode to learn these answers.

Grey's Anatomy Season 19 Episode 17: Release Date, Recap & Speculation
Schmitt Warns Lucas and Jules

A patient arrives at ER complaining about a vague abdominal pain and asks the doctors to page the best doctor for his condition. Bailey is called in, but the patient turns out to be one of the pro-life haters, and while she runs, Blue and Addison dismiss him. 

Bailey complains to Addison about her mother’s lesson about “killing them with kindness,” so Addison finds a way to deal with this as non-violently as possible. Owen and Hunt drag Amelia out for a tricky surgery, but she lashes at everyone after being abandoned by Kai. Addison sets her straight and asks her to sit in an AA meeting.

Lucas and Jules pull off a complicated tracheotomy but are reprimanded by Schmitt due to the lack of an attending doctor. Jules confesses to Lucas about her past problems with crushes when he asks her about Blue and her apparent feelings for him. He picks her for his Man of Honor position at Simone’s wedding due to his crush on her.

Taryn bursts on Teddy to look into the residency program to ensure it pays better after seeing Mika burn out while Winston puts his name for the next Chief of Cardio. Jo apologizes to Link for her awful behavior despite his kind efforts after Luna’s illness turned out to be a fluke.
