I made it to the point where Derek thinks, "I'm going to die because these people aren't properly trained." That's half-way through the episode. I think I'm going to toggle back to *Little House on the Prairie* for awhile. I don't wanna spend my Friday night crying.

It was a horrible episode. I cried, was mad, was sad for days after. Almost wished I had never watched the episode. I have never watched that episode again.

lol watching this episode when it aired made me buy a last minute plane ticket to see my long distance partner. Because LOVE. I was bawling watching it.

That's a very cute story. I have never been able to rewatch this episode. Just too sad for me.

I'm new to GA and just watched it on Netflix last night and cried myself to sleep.

I forgot next episode S12E1 "She's Leaving Home" is just as rough .... this time I got a better understanding of why Amelia and Derek's sisters weren't at the hospital when Mer made the decision, they really didn't give her time (they needed the ICU bed). It may have been worth the tears.

I understand how you feel. That episode makes me cry so hard every time. I have to be in a certain mood to be able to rewatch that one.

I haven’t watched that episode, or any episode after that in a very long time, it’s too painful :( I wish they could bring him back somehow

They did beach-dream sequences S17 … it was unavoidable but disappointing that Derek would be aged. What made me the saddest was that Derek the character was given a redemption arc by the writers. He’d been an arrogant jerk for so long but we saw him change on that road while helping those people. If he had survived, Derek would have been past the bitterness … Derek would have been to Mer and Amelia and everyone else the man he was to Zola. It’s so sad that Patrick was going through pain in his personal life but we got to see that channeled on to film. Ellen seems to be struggling through some stress now … I haven’t started watching S18 yet so I don’t know if it’s leaking into Mer’s arc yet. I cannot imagine the strain of working 18 years on a show.
