Grey's Anatomy Sneak Peek: Mer's Pals Fear She'll 'Explode' — Will She?

We should have seen it coming.

In this exclusive sneak peek from Thursday’s Grey’s Anatomy (ABC, 8/7c), we learn that among the side effects of Meredith’s recovery from her attack is an outbreak of well-intentioned but coddling friends and relations.
