We now know how and by whom Meredith is attacked on Grey’s Anatomy. We also know who will be by her side in the harrowing incident’s aftermath.
In a fresh promo touting the ABC drama’s Feb. 11 midseason premiere, we learn that Meredith is physically assaulted by one of her patients and Penny (aka Derek’s killer) is the first to call for help. Widespread panic and pandemonium give way to an eerie silence as we’re led to believe Mer is knocking at death’s door.
