You had to feel — and feel bad — for Richard as he watched Eliza entice Grey Sloan’s residents into telling tales about him and their other teachers.
With all of Grey Sloan pissed at him for pressing charges against Alex, Andrew wasn’t just touched, he was stunned when, instead of evict him, roommate Arizona embraced him.
Though Maggie’s crush on Nathan was about a minute old when he gently denied her request for a date, her hurt reaction was timeless.
Who didn’t want a hug — and breakfast — after Alex told Mer that, until he was jailed, he wanted to have Waffle Sundays “like a family, all of us”?
Even more crushing than Jo’s confession to Alex that she was wed to an abusive husband was her attempt to make her estranged almost-fiancé believe that, if she fled post-trial, he wasn’t to blame.
We didn’t think anything could affect us as much as doomed mom-to-be Veronica explaining that imagining BFF Jeremy as a dad meant “all this crap is worth something”…

Grey assured Alex in “You Haven’t Done Nothin'” that, even if he stupidly took the plea and went to jail, she’d be fine. But watching him say farewell to her, we weren’t sure that we would be.
We broke down right along with Amelia when, during “Roar,” she revealed to Alex the whole sad story of her son’s 43-minute life.
