Meredith Grey would have been asked to do what she''d done in the future for for a good part of this week onGreys Anatomyseason 18.
This decision was a tough one for the character, but it does not come as a surprise. Just think about all of the forces pulling her in a ton of different directions! There were reasons to think that she would stay in the Emerald City, but also reasons for her to start over.
Even after the residency program at the Grey Sloan fell apart, she was set to leave for about ten days. She was dissatisfied with the idea that many people would dissipate her for leaving even though she gave more or less her everything to them. She was put in a dangerous position in that many people wanted something extra from her, no matter how much she had already given to them.
