Plots[edit]

The season follows the story of surgical 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.

After the explosion at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Chief Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) finds it the perfect time to give the place a much needed upgrade in look and functionality. During the construction, Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) struggles with the shocking reunion with his sister, Megan (Abigail Spencer), who was recently found in a hostage camp overseas. The discovery also welcomes back Teddy Altman (Kim Raver), the former chief of cardiothoracic surgery and Owen's best friend, which leads to awkward moments with Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone). Of course, Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson), who was once in love with Megan, is torn between his love for her and his most recent interest in Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo). Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) learns what "ghosting" is after Eliza Minnick (Marika Dominczyk) vanishes without a trace, but she quickly finds company in an Italian girl she met at the bar, Carina DeLuca (Stefania Spampinato), sister to Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti). Jo Wilson (Camilla Luddington) struggles to patch her relationship with Alex Karev (Justin Chambers), but when her attempts fail, she finds herself sleeping with one of the new interns.

When Carina finds that Amelia has a brain tumor, she brings her former mentor/professor Dr Tom Koracek (Greg Germann) to create a treatment plan. But when he points out how the tumor has affected her judgment, she fears that it might have ruined her patient's lives or put them in more danger—specifically Dr Nicole Herman (Geena Davis), who despite saving her life, was left blind. After the tumor is removed, Amelia and Owen reflect on their marriage and decide that everything up to that point has been misguided; the tumor made Amelia someone she was not, and they ultimately decide to get a divorce. With all the changes happening at Grey Sloan, Harper Avery (Chelcie Ross) shows up to discuss everything with Bailey and then ends up firing her. Shortly after, he immediately dies from cardiac arrest. Before they have to find another chief, Catherine (Debbie Allen) and Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) reinstate Bailey to her position. At a family dinner hosted by Catherine and Richard Weber (James Pickens Jr.), Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) and Jackson learn that he will be receiving his grandfather’s inheritance, a quarter billion dollars, which he will eventually use to fund a medical research contest.

Now that Megan is healthy again, Meredith and Nathan work together to bring her son over to the United States. Upon arrival, Nathan, Megan, and Farouk all move to California to start a life together, which officially ends Nathan's relationship with Meredith. Despite the breakup, Meredith has more exciting news on the horizon when she learns at the intern mixer that a ground breaking surgery has earned her a nomination for the highly-esteemed Harper Avery Foundation Award, which she goes on to win. While the joyous news spreads around the hospital, Bailey learns that Ben Warren (Jason George) wants to leave surgery to join the Seattle Fire Department. With Jo and Alex now living together again, she realizes how much control her estranged husband, Dr Paul Stadler (Matthew Morrison), has over her. Now in the running for chief resident, Jo decides to file for divorce. With her mind on her secret relationship with Paul, she is surprised to find him in the hospital. Jo attempts to steer clear of him, but at the same time also believes she has a duty to inform Paul's fiancé of what type of man he really is. As Paul keeps trying to find Jo, Meredith pretends to call security to have him removed, but he leaves before they can get there. However, he winds up back in the ER as a victim of a hit and run accident. With everyone running around the ER, April Kepner (Sarah Drew) sees a familiar face in Matthew (Justin Bruening), the paramedic she left at the altar for Jackson. He is there with his wife who is now pregnant. After Jo talks to Jenny (Bethany Joy Lenz), Paul's fiancé, they venture to Paul's room to tell him they are taking him to court. Upon receiving the news, he tries to attack them in a bout of rage; however, he falls out of bed and hits his head knocking him unconscious, rendering him brain dead. Still legally his wife, Jo decides to have them remove all life-sustaining support. April struggles with the idea that the man she left to pursue her own happiness is now married and expecting a child, while she is alone and a single mother. As she begins to question her faith, she acts out and sleeps with an intern.

With all the stress and work that comes with being Chief of Surgery, Bailey begins to show signs of a heart attack. She winds up at Seattle Presbyterian Hospital, where the doctors take her concerns less than seriously. They see in her chart a history of OCD and believe that is the underlying issue, since the tests they are running are coming back negative. Bailey calls on Maggie to save her, and after she does, Bailey decides to support Ben’s decision to become a firefighter, as she realizes life is too short to do anything than what makes you happy.

With the medical research contest, funded by Jackson's money, getting underway, the doctors begin to team up and brainstorm ideas that will help them win the top prize of a grant that will fund their research even further. Meredith learns that for her project, she will need to acquire a patent that is owned by Marie Cerone, a former friend of her mother's. When Marie denies access to the patent, Meredith is forced to investigate further into the reason why. According to Richard, there was a falling out of some sort, but he never knew what happened between the two women. At a dinner party hosted by Amelia, Maggie brings her new boyfriend around to meet her friends. However, it is soon revealed that her boyfriend is a married man. Quick to call it off, Jackson sees his opportunity to invest in his love interest with Maggie. In Meredith's search for answers, she learns that Ellis Grey left Marie’s name off the surgical method they created together. If she is to acquire the patent, she must publicly announce a change the method’s name to the Grey-Cerone Method. Meredith denies the ultimatum. While Maggie and Jackson try to get past the quirks of their relationship and the fact that their step-siblings, Jo shockingly asks Alex to marry him. He quickly accepts.

With the research projects humming along, Owen and Amelia continue to take advantage of their "friends with benefits" relationship, that is until Amelia learns how close Owen is with Teddy. She advises him to go after her if she is the love of his life. The advice sends him to Germany where he surprises Teddy. The two talk all night and make plans to stay together, but when she learns that Amelia had just told him the night before to pursue her, she refuses to be his backup plan and kicks him out.

Bailey is surprised to learn that one of her interns, Sam Bello (Jeanine Mason), is a "Dreamer" protected by (DACA). Meredith designs a plan to keep from being deported. Despite pleas from Andrew (Sam's boyfriend), Meredith sends to work under Dr Cristina Yang in Switzerland. While the research contest reaches the next milestone, presentation day, Catherine confronts Jackson about a major secret concerning his grandfather. The man had 13 cases of sexual harassment filed against him, and she herself paid the women major settlements to keep it all covered up. Meredith learns of this truth and also that Marie Cerone was one of the 13. Disgusted with the whole situation, Meredith decides to return her and her mother's Harper Avery awards and Bailey shuts down the research contest. In the meantime, Catherine tries with all her might to save the face of the foundation since the news has spread. While in surgery, Jackson and Meredith come up with their own plan, which is to rename the foundation in honor of Catherine (née Fox) to the Catherine Fox Foundation.

When Alex learns that his mom has not been cashing the checks he has been sending, he and Jo take off to Iowa to check on her. He surprisingly finds that she is doing well and even works her old job at the library. The two extend an invitation to the wedding, but she declines stating it would be too much for her. While Owen and Amelia struggle with adjusting to being foster parents—Owen to a baby and Amelia to the baby's teenaged mother on drugs, Arizona continues to battle with Sofia who wants to move back to New York to be with her other mom, Callie. After calling Callie to tell her they are moving to the east coast to be closer to her, Arizona announced her impeding departure to Bailey. However, an unexpected visit from Nicole Herman changes those plans just slightly. Nicole has been following Arizona's work and she would like to partner with her in creating the Robbins-Herman Center for Women's Health. Knowing that she has headed to New York, Arizona asks that it be there, and Nicole obliges.

Matthew winds up in the ER again, but this time for himself, after he rolled his car. Trying to get information from him about what happened, he mentions April's name, which sends the doctors into a frenzy trying to make sure she is safe. Owen finds her unconscious at the site of the accident, down in a ravine nearby. After he rushes her back to the hospital, the team rallies to save her, and after extreme measures have been taken to bring her back to life, she wakes up, fully functional. Alex and Jo's wedding day has arrived, and though most details have come together, April (who has been planning the wedding) panics when multiple guests go to the wrong ceremony. While trying to escape, the mother of the bride faints, keeping Ben and Bailey behind. Once at the hospital, Bailey struggles to find an available cardio surgeon until Teddy unexpectedly arrives looking for a job. Jo learns she has been accepted into Mass Gen's fellowship program, but fearful of losing Alex, Meredith offers Jo the general surgery attending position. The wedding is delayed when the wedding planner goes into anaphylactic shock and an emergency tracheotomy is performed to save her. After the guests leave thinking there will be no wedding, the pastor finally arrives in time to marry April and Matthew after a surprise re-engagement. On a ferry back to the main land, Maggie has the idea to have Meredith ordained online to officiate the wedding right there on the ferry. Bailey, wanting to take a break from being chief to focus on her passions, offers Teddy the chance to be interim chief. Watching the wedding happening at the hospital on a tablet, in the ICU with the bride's mother, Teddy reveals she is pregnant. Arizona says her sad goodbyes before heading to New York, but is giddy to be closer to Callie who is recently single.

Richard is surprised to see his AA sponsor, Ollie, arrive at Grey Sloan in an ambulance. After she denies him the ability to save her life once more, he enlists the help of Maggie and Meredith. Now that Owen is back in the States, he has to face the disdain of Arizona and Amelia's failure to fix things with Teddy. In between the personal conversations, Arizona and Owen look further into a fraudulent oncologist. In their pursuit, they coincidentally learn that Arizona has breast cancer—at least until it was proven that the image produced was a fake. Alex, Amelia, and Tom resect Noah’s brain tumor, despite never performing the procedure before. Though successful, Amelia and Tom decide that it is too risky to do the same for Kimmy, which infuriates Alex. April strives to make amends with her colleagues, and Jackson, claiming that she has found Jesus again. Meredith and Jo learn that their research can be successful without the polymer, and that they can help patients grow livers and save lives.
31219"Beautiful Dreamer"Jeannot SzwarcMeg MarinisApril 12, 2018 (2018-04-12)6.97[45]
Bailey gets caught off guard when an agent from ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) shows up looking for one of her surgical interns, Sam Bello. Unaware of the situation, Sam explains that she is a "dreamer" protected by DACA. While Meredith and Andrew scheme up ideas to keep Sam from being deported back to El Salvador, Bailey distracts Agent Fields with concerns about his own health. As Arizona and Carina move forward in their research by learning from their previous patient's death, April is surprised to see Matthew back at Grey Sloan with his baby who is failing to thrive. When Alex refuses to give up on Kimmy, Jo realizes Kimmy's dream and signs off on discharge papers. Catherine comes back to support Richard who has stayed with Ollie right through her final breath. Meredith sends Sam to Zurich to study under Cristina; Owen signs up to become a foster parent, and Jackson confronts Maggie about her tendency to resist their relationship. Jackson directs the Harper Avery Foundation to release a researcher from an agreement so she can collaborate with Amelia; Catherine tells Richard that the hospital is now doomed.
31320"Judgment Day"Sydney FreelandJulie WongApril 19, 2018 (2018-04-19)6.93[46]
As the next stage of the research contest begins, the Top 25 proposals are presented by their respective owners who have gathered to present in front of a panel and audience. Arizona shares cookies, provided by a grateful patient, with her colleagues; however, she later learns they were laced with cannabis. Due to the mishap, the presentations are postponed, and the interns are summoned to replace the stoned attendings. Meredith walks Jo through surgery after Bailey is forced to scrub out and accidentally injures Meredith's hand. Jo makes effective use of Richard's project. Catherine tells Jackson of the 13 cases of sexual harassment that were filed against his grandfather and the major settlements used to cover them up. April overhears and then shares the secret with Bailey, who has a secret of her own—she is partnering with a sex toy company to make her "Trailblazer" device. Owen gets a call about his first foster child, which makes him nervous until Amelia saves him. Meredith learns about the dark past of Harper Avery and, in addition, that Marie Cerone was one of the 13 women. Richard fires intern, Dr Vikram Roy, who was found practicing under the influence.
31421"Bad Reputation"Kevin McKiddMark DriscollApril 26, 2018 (2018-04-26)6.54[47]
With word spreading about Harper Avery, Meredith decides to return her and Ellis' awards to the foundation. Catherine hires a crisis management specialist, who brings in a patient for Jackson and Meredith to heal as PR stunt. Bailey shuts down the innovation contest for fear of word getting out that an Avery funded it, so April volunteers her time to plan Alex and Jo’s wedding. Alex and Jo get awkward when, Olivia, the former “Syph nurse,” returns to the hospital with her son—who swallowed a whistle—and begins planting seeds of doubt. Owen takes Leo in for his check up with his birth mom in tow, who ends up talking to Amelia. Thinking she can sponsor her with her drug addiction, Amelia takes her in as a foster child of her own. Meredith and Jackson think up a way to save the foundation by changing its name to the Catherine Fox Foundation dedicated to all the women victimized by the previous regime. Alex learns that his bank account balance is awfully high due to his mom not cashing the checks he has been sending her, and Vikram plans to sue the hospital for wrongful termination.
31522"Fight for Your Mind"Jesse WilliamsAndy ReaserMay 3, 2018 (2018-05-03)6.66[48]
Alex and Jo drive to Iowa to locate his mom, only to find that she no longer exhibits schizophrenic behavior and that she has even returned to her old job. Richard and Bailey battle to keep the hospital from being sued by Vikram; although Bailey stands by the initial firing, Richard empathizes as he reflects on the times he operated while inebriated. As Amelia helps Betty detox, Arizona struggles to accept that Sofia stole money. Meredith kills time before her presentation throwing darts with a guy she eventually learns is a surgeon who's there to see her. Their conversation leads Meredith to decide that the “Grey Method” should be renamed the “Grey-Cerone Method.” After Alex works things out with his mom, Jo extends a declined invitation to their wedding. Bailey allows Vikram to return under strict probationary rules; Amelia visits an AA group after Betty makes an escape, and Arizona calls Callie to say that she thinks it is time for her and Sofia to move to New York.
31623"Cold as Ice"Bill D'EliaWilliam HarperMay 10, 2018 (2018-05-10)7.35[49]
After Arizona tells Bailey of her upcoming departure, she and Amelia consult with a familiar patient, Dr Nicole Herman. Her arrival presents an opportunity that changes Arizona’s future plans-the chance to partner with her and create the Robbins-Herman Center for Women’s Health. When Matthew winds up in the ER after rolling his car and mentions being with April, the doctors fear the worst. Frantically trying to locate her, Owen finds her unconscious in a nearby ravine. Unknowing of the latest events, Alex and Jo work to finalize the details of their impending wedding. Maggie thinks she detects a subtle rhythm on April’s monitor, but she has to repeatedly shock her to strengthen it. While waiting for her to wake up, Arizona breaks the news that Matthew and April have been seeing each other for months and that they were in love. Thinking that the end has come, Jackson finally prays to God and begs Him to save her in exchange for his belief. However, April awakens fully functional despite the disbelief of all her coworkers.
31724"All of Me"Debbie AllenKrista VernoffMay 17, 2018 (2018-05-17)7.60[50]
Alex and Jo’s wedding day has arrived, and though most details have come together, April (who quit the hospital and is now doing medical work with the homeless) panics when multiple guests go to the wrong ceremony. While trying to escape, the mother of the bride faints, keeping Ben and Bailey behind. Once at the hospital, Bailey struggles to find an available cardio surgeon until Teddy unexpectedly arrives looking for a job. Jo learns she has been accepted into Mass Gen’s fellowship program, but fearful of losing Alex, Meredith offers Jo the general surgery attending position. As guests arrive, Alex and Jo accidentally lock themselves in a shed after engaging in one last fling before tying the knot. The wedding is delayed when the wedding planner goes into anaphylactic shock and an emergency tracheotomy is performed to save her. After the guests leave thinking there will be no wedding, the pastor finally arrives in time to marry April and Matthew after a surprise re-engagement. On a ferry back to the main land, Maggie has the idea to have Meredith ordained online to officiate the wedding right there on the ferry. Bailey, wanting to take a break from being chief to focus on her passions, offers Teddy the chance to be interim chief. Watching the wedding happening at the hospital on a tablet, in the ICU with the bride’s mother, Teddy reveals she is pregnant. Arizona says her sad goodbyes before heading to New York, but is giddy to be closer to Callie who is recently single.
