The season was officially released on DVD as a six-disc boxset under the title of Grey's Anatomy: The Complete Tenth Season – Live For The Moments on September 2, 2014 by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.

It was announced on May 8, 2014, by ABC that Grey's Anatomy would return in the fall of 2014 for Season 11.[4]

Plots[edit]

The season follows the story of surgical interns, residents, fellows, and attendings as they experience the difficulties of the competitive careers they have chosen. It is set in the surgical wing of the fictional Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, located in Seattle, Washington. Creator Shonda Rhimes had this to say about the titular character, Meredith Grey: "Meredith is juggling a lot. She's trying to be a good mom, wife, and friend; and this is the year of her attending career in which she should really be trying to make her mark. Meredith's going to discover whether or not she's interested in being that person who puts her career first."[5]

After the superstorm passed, Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital found itself trying to save some of their own. Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr.) was electrocuted and found by an intern, Dr. Heather Brooks (Tina Majorino). However, before realizing the danger, she too stepped into the water and was electrocuted. Luckily, the surgical staff were able to save Dr. Webber but Dr. Brooks was not as fortunate, as Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) and Dr. Shane Ross (Gaius Charles) failed to resuscitate her. Subsequently, Dr. Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) reconnected with his father, Jimmy (James Remar), when Jimmy finds his way into the Emergency Room. Dr. Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington), Dr. Karev's new love interest, supported Alex during this reunion. Jimmy revealed to Dr. Karev that he has family in Florida, but much to Dr. Karev's dismay, it was not his family. Unfortunately, before Alex and Jimmy were able to reconcile their differences, Jimmy died due to a botched surgery.

Sticking with the interns who become residents this season, Dr. Ross teamed up with Dr. Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) to work on her research, heart conduits. Dr. Yang received a Harper-Avery Nomination, but as the majority of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital is owned by the Harper Avery Foundation, Dr. Yang did not win. Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), with the help from Dr. Stephanie Edwards (Jerrika Hinton), was also busy at work with her research, a continuation of the research her mother, Dr. Ellis Grey (Kate Burton), conducted while she was still living. To do her research, she ordered a 3-D printer, which not only aided Dr. Grey's research, but also helped Dr. Yang and Dr. Ross with their conduits. Dr. Shepherd and Dr. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) teamed up with the White House to work on a brain mapping project, a project that will identify which parts of the brain are responsible for different functions. Dr. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) was also at the helm of a project mapping out the human genome, a project that helped her save her bubble-boy patient, Braden. Dr. Karev accepts a job offer from Dr. Oliver Lebackes, a.k.a. Dr. "Butthole," to work at his private practice.

While separated, Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) continues to sleep around, this time with Dr. Leah Murphy (Tessa Ferrer). After some heated fights, Dr. Torres and Dr. Robbins reconcile their differences and move back in together. They eventually decide that they would like to have another baby, and Dr. Robbins tells Dr. Torres that she would like for her to carry it. Dr. Yang and Dr. Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) gradually take their relationship from complicated and painful to a place of real friendship where they both know they love each other but have accepted the fact that they cannot have a life together as much as they want to.. Dr. April Kepner (Sarah Drew) and Dr. Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) surprise everyone when they elope during Dr. Kepner and paramedic Matthew's (Justin Bruening) wedding. Issues arise when Dr. Kepner realizes that her faith, and Dr. Avery's lack thereof, is going to be a huge problem when raising their children. Dr. Avery, after some time apart from Dr. Kepner and finding out that she's pregnant, tells her that he wants to go to church with her and his family (as long as waffles ensue afterwards).

After losing the Harper Avery Award, Dr. Yang receives offers from many institutions asking her to speak about her research. One of those offers comes from a hospital in Zürich, Switzerland. Despite Dr. Webber's pleading Dr. Yang to fight against the Harper Avery Foundation for not honoring her work, Dr. Yang takes off to Switzerland where she unexpectedly reconnects with Dr. Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington), the owner of the hospital. Initially, Dr. Yang believes that this is all a ploy to get her back in his life, but it's really only a job offer to take over Dr. Burke's hospital because he wants to step down and move his family closer to his wife's parents in Milan. After realizing that neither she nor any other doctor at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital will ever win a Harper Avery Award because of the Foundation's ownership, she accepts a job offer from Dr. Burke. Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) supports her decision as he realizes no good could come from him asking her to stay, but requests her not to leave him until she has to leave him for good, following which, they both spend two weeks leading to her permanent departure together. While saying her farewell to her colleagues of the last seven years, there is a possible act of terrorism in Seattle, which later turns out to be just a gas main explosion. Cristina has a quick but emotional goodbye hug with Derek, Bailey, and Webber, leaves her shares of the hospital to Alex, and dances it out with Meredith one last time to an old favorite song. Owen, however, is busy saving a patient in the O.R., so they share a silent goodbye through the gallery's glass without exchanging a word with their eyes and imperceptible nods saying everything that was left unsaid. Dr. Grey starts fighting with Dr. Shepherd when she adamantly states that she's not going to Washington, D.C. because Cristina makes her realize her life is in Seattle and she is just as important in the relationship as Derek is. The new head of cardio, Dr. Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) tells Dr. Webber that her birth mother is Dr. Ellis Grey, and asks if he knows her.

Cast[edit]

Casting[edit]

In May 2012, it was announced that six original cast mates, Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Chandra Wilson, Justin Chambers, and James Pickens, Jr. had renewed their contracts through Season 10, as Meredith Grey, Derek Shepherd, Cristina Yang, Miranda Bailey, Alex Karev, and Richard Webber respectively.[6] It was revealed in June 2013, that four out of the five interns from Season 9 would be returning as series regulars, including Camilla Luddington, Gaius Charles, Jerrika Hinton and Tessa Ferrer.[7] It was announced in July 2013 that Bobby Campo and Heather Hemmens were slated to guest star in the two-part season premiere.[8] In August 2013, TV Guide reported that Dexter alum James Remar is set for a "mysterious" story arc.[9] It was later revealed that Remar would be playing Alex Karev's drug addict father, whom he hasn't seen in more than twenty years.[10][11] In October 2013, it was announced that Hector Elizondo would be returning to the show, as Callie Torres' father, for a 'Callie-centric' episode that would air mid-November.[12] Other guest stars in November were Valerie Mahaffey and Gordon Clapp.

On March 6, 2014, it was revealed that Isaiah Washington would reprise his role as Preston Burke for one episode in May 2014. It is believed that his reappearance will have ties with Cristina Yang's (Sandra Oh) departure from the show after ten years. Dr. Burke was Cristina Yang's love interest for much of his three years on the show. Washington was fired seven years ago after he made a homophobic slur against fellow cast mate, T.R. Knight.[16] On March 18, 2014, it was announced that another Grey's Anatomy alum would return in May and stay until the end of the season. Caterina Scorsone will return to play Amelia Shepherd, one of Derek's four sisters. Scorsone was a regular on the Grey's Anatomy spin-off, Private Practice, where she also portrayed Amelia Shepherd.[17]

In April, news broke that Kelly McCreary would guest star in the Season 10 finale.[18] It wasn't known until the season finale aired that her character, Dr. Pierce, was hired by Dr. Yang to be the new head of cardio. It was also discovered at the end of the episode that Dr. Ellis Grey was her birth mother.

On August 13, 2013, Sandra Oh revealed that after the tenth season she would be leaving Grey's Anatomy.[19][20] It was announced on March 25, 2014, that Gaius Charles and Tessa Ferrer were not having their options picked up for Season 11, meaning that Season 10 would be their last season as regulars on the show.[21] On January 23, 2014, it was announced that Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey had renewed their contracts for another two seasons, as Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd respectively, meaning their characters will be staying on the medical drama for seasons 11 and 12.[22] On May 2, 2014, it was announced that the rest of the six original cast mates, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, and James Pickens Jr., excluding Sandra Oh, had renewed their contracts for another two seasons (11 and 12). Sara Ramirez also renewed her contract for another two seasons.[23]

Many sources, including Rachel Simon of Bustle and Nicole Pomarico of Wetpaint, claimed that Sandra Oh's performance during her tenth and final season on Grey's Anatomy is worthy of an Emmy nomination. Simon stated "She made us care about Grey’s in a way we hadn’t in years, bringing us into Cristina’s life and mind fully and ferociously. The show has been good for several seasons now; because of Oh’s performance this year, it once again became great."[31][32]

She tells him that she’s worried that he’ll be at home waiting on her just like Tucker used to do, and he resumes his internship... at Grey Sloan. Stephanie is having a hard time accepting that Jackson broke up with her for April and, with Leah's encouragement, someone anonymously files an HR complaint on behalf of the interns concerning sexual harassment from their attendings.

Derek has to tell Callie that they can’t continue with their research because of the guidelines in his contract with his colleagues at the White House. As if that's not enough, Callie learns the HR complaint was filed by Leah against her, as Leah felt that she was cheated out of a learning opportunity and needed to stand up for herself and others.

Time is quickly passing as the two get married, move in together, get a dog, have a baby, await the birth of their second child, and see Ross win the Harper Avery Award for Cristina's trial that she quit on to take care of her family. The second universe begins when Cristina comes back to reality and her patient says he doesn’t want to be taken off the ventilator. This once again sends Cristina into Owen's arms, but this time, she's happy. However, the stipulation that they will never have kids still remains, which Owen initially accepts. They continue to have their on-again, off-again relationship which drives Owen to drinking more than he should putting himself and his patients in grave danger. Cristina tells him it's over for good, and she goes on to win the Harper Avery Award for four straight years. Once again, Cristina comes back to reality. This time, her patient decides to be taken off the ventilator; however, she’s able to save Jackson from injuring his hand, and her hesitancy to approach Owen allows Meredith to approach her about a patient, which allows Owen to get on the elevator before she can greet him.
214 18 "You Be Illin'" Nicole Cummins Zoanne Clack April 3, 2014 (2014-04-03) 8.28[46]
A virus breaks out at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Because of the close encounters of doctors and patients, the virus spreads like wild fire. It first knocks out Jackson, then Leah, and finally Derek. It's an inopportune time for Derek to get sick because it's the day of his presentation on brain mapping; to fill in for him, Meredith steps up and delivers her own twist on his speech. Callie teaches Jo about the joys of ortho and how it presents the opportunity to take out all frustration on the patient while helping them, plus it pays. Cristina and Owen team up to work on a pair of sisters who have cardiomyopathy caused by an unknown source, and even though they caught the issue in time, the sisters' brother starts showing similar symptoms. Because Cristina is busy on this case, Shane has to step up and take care of the babies in Cristina's trial, a.k.a. her "baby." Alex receives an offer from a doctor who runs his own private practice. Alex seriously considers and starts to discuss it with Jo. April and Bailey operate on a child who is very susceptible to infection due to his condition that is no longer treatable with the enzyme treatments he was previously receiving.
215 19 "I'm Winning" Kevin McKidd Joan Rater April 10, 2014 (2014-04-10) 8.18[47]
It's that time of year when the nominees for the annual Harper Avery Award are announced, and Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital's own Dr. Cristina Yang is one of them. Her fellow colleagues are all very ecstatic for her nomination except for Meredith and Dr. Bailey. To mask her jealousy, Meredith makes a celebratory toast to Cristina. Dr. Bailey, however, is less efficient at hiding her feelings. Cristina's self-esteem takes a blow when her patient's family doubts her abilities and says that her best is bad. Alex tells Jo that he called to accept the offer from Dr. "Butt Hole" to work for his private practice. Derek and Callie take the next step in their research by getting baseline measurements of brain activity. Callie finds out that although she has a great life, one thing is holding her back from being truly happy: a baby. Callie tells Arizona she wants another baby, and Arizona says she wants one, too. Owen tells Cristina that he's looked at the other nominees' research, and he's confident that she'll win. Cristina agrees.
216 20 "Go It Alone" Mark Jackson Lauren Barnett April 17, 2014 (2014-04-17) 8.45[48]
It’s the day before the winner of the Harper Avery award is honored, and Cristina has plans with Meredith to go to Joe’s, have a few shots of tequila, and write her acceptance speech. Before she can engage in those plans, her patients’ parents start arguing which endangers the kids’ health. Both girls reject their hearts, while their brother still awaits his transplant. While babysitting Zola and Bailey, Callie and Arizona decide that Callie will carry their second baby. April and Jackson also face off when Jackson thinks that it’s ludicrous that his patient’s parents don’t want a cochlear implant for their deaf daughter. April substitutes her faith for the cochlear implant, and Jackson suddenly sees the problem. April then shows up on the doorstep of Callie and Arizona’s place asking to stay for a while. Cristina who goes to the Harper Avery award ceremony by herself, has last second doubts about being there alone and calls Meredith. After pulling herself together, she walks in to locate her table only to find Meredith and Owen waving her over. Unfortunately, Cristina does not win the Harper Avery award.
217 21 "Change of Heart" Rob Greenlea Meg Marinis April 24, 2014 (2014-04-24) 7.99[49]
Meredith, Owen, and Cristina all return to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital after Cristina's loss at the Harper Avery award ceremony. April, still residing with Callie and Arizona, drives them nuts. She feels that her fight with Jackson is the end of their relationship. Jackson is feeling pressured to cut back on the hospital's research funds and projects and must decide whose research will be terminated. Richard travels across the country with plans to propose to Catherine Avery, but finds out the real reason why Cristina lost to her competition; because the hospital is owned by the Harper Avery Foundation, no doctor that works there will ever win the award. Meanwhile, back at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Cristina is faced with the decision of which patient will get the heart transplant. Amelia, Derek's sister, makes a surprise visit to see if she can have the life Derek and Meredith have. Alex gives the board his notice that he’ll be accepting the private practice offer; April tells Jackson that they can’t forget about their "hypothetical" children per Jackson's request, because she's pregnant.
218 22 "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" Rob Corn Joan Rater May 1, 2014 (2014-05-01) 8.81[50]
In an attempt to get back at Catherine Avery, Webber calls an emergency board meeting…without Jackson. The board wants to appeal the Harper Avery award, which would have gone to Cristina if the Harper Avery Foundation didn't own her hospital. Hunt convinces Cristina to accept an invitation to speak at a hospital in Switzerland. During the lecture, a questioner from the back turns out to be none other than Dr. Preston Burke. Meanwhile, back at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Amelia and Derek team up to work on conjoined twins who share a brain. Burke offers a job to Cristina while showing her his hospital, but it’s not just a job working for him. Instead, it’s his job. Jackson and April start to mend their broken relationship when he agrees to attend church with her and their baby, as long as she agrees to waffles afterwards. Callie and Arizona are thinking about baby names, Agamemnon being a favorite of Callie’s. Alex is loving his job at the private practice, but Jo is starting to sink under the pressure of her duties. The residents learn that someone amongst them is going to get fired. Stephanie figures out that Bailey administered the deactivated HIV virus to her bubble-boy patient, despite his parents' wishes, and thinks it’s brilliant.
219 23 "Everything I Try to Do, Nothing Seems to Turn Out Right" Bill D'Elia Austin Guzman May 8, 2014 (2014-05-08) 7.95[51]
Dr. Bailey faces legal charges of assault and battery after she reveals to Braden's parents that she implemented the deactivated HIV treatment despite their wishes. In an attempt to get Cristina to stay at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Owen puts Cristina in charge of screening applicants for the position of head of cardio. April and Jackson have their first OB/GYN visit, and decide not to tell anyone yet. Callie is heartbroken when she goes to the OB/GYN because it's revealed that she has too many adhesions from the car accident to be able to carry. Derek comes back from Washington, D.C. with news of a job offer to work at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and a job offer for Meredith at James Madison Hospital. Amelia confides in Meredith that she wants to call off her engagement in order to move to Seattle. Dr. Webber tells Leah that she's not fit to be a surgeon, and consequently, cuts her from the residency program.
220 24 "Fear (of the Unknown)" Tony Phelan William Harper May 15, 2014 (2014-05-15) 8.92[52]
The day has arrived that Cristina leaves for Zurich, but a possible act of terrorism delays her departure. Before she can get to the mall to buy a European phone charger, an explosion at the mall sends multiple injured victims to the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Leah comes to the ER when she hears about the explosion, but leaves with no goodbyes when she sees every patient had been treated. April receives a pep talk from Catherine Avery, her mother-in-law, when she starts to fear raising a baby in a world that is so dangerous. Cristina, looking for closure, can’t leave the hospital until she and Meredith dance it out one last time. Shane demands that he take control of his education and leaves to work under Cristina in Zurich. Meredith tells Derek that she can’t leave Seattle, the place where she grew up and made her life; she’s not going to Washington, D.C., despite what Derek says. Callie and Arizona consider having a surrogate mother carry their future baby after treating a surrogate who was burned by the explosion. Bailey is nominated for a position on the board by Webber due to Cristina’s departure; however, Cristina left Karev her shares of the hospital and her board position. Webber connects with Dr. Pierce, the new head of cardio, and finds out that her birth mother was Ellis Grey.
