Grey's Anatomy: Ellen Pompeo Describes Season 14 Finale

Ellen Pompeo is part of one of the most-talked-about shows (Grey's Anatomy) on all of TV, and the cast members have become well-known for interacting with fans on social media. 

On Wednesday night, the actress engaged in a Twitter Q&A with fans, and one fan asked her to describe the upcoming season finale in three words. 

"I can do it in 2... not easy," she responded. 

That's certainly scary when you consider the fact that the episode will culminate with the exits of long-term series regulars, Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew

Both actresses were let go from the veteran medical drama series earlier this year in what was described at the time as creative reasons.

Given that the show has a knack for killing off departing characters, we're going to assume this means one of them could be leaving by way of the Grim Reaper.

Grey's Anatomy: Will Alex Go to Prison Again? Let's Consider the Facts

In the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy, Alex instigates a scary fight with Amelia's colleague, Dr. Koracick, after the neurosurgeon tells him there's no way that they can safely help Alex's young cancer patient. The peds surgeon violently corners Dr. Korackick, grabbing him by the collar to threaten him. This isn't the first time we see Alex's rage get the best of him, and I'm legitimately worried about what the future holds for Alex.

Like Meredith, he's grown so much over the last fourteen seasons, transforming from a reckless frat boy to a respectable adult. He helps Izzie in her most vulnerable moments (particularly regarding the Denny Duquette incident and her cancer diagnosis) and has worked hard to become a caring pediatrics surgeon. We later learn that he has been protecting his schizophrenic mother from his father, an abusive drug addict.

Grey's Anatomy Round Table: Is Alex's Bad Temper a Redundant Plot Device?

A cruel joke was played on fans during Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 18, but fortunately, Arizona is perfectly healthy.

Kimmie still isn't, however, and it has brought out the disappointing side of Karev.

Join TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Paul Dailly, and Jasmine Blu as they break down the episode.

Does it bother you that Alex can't shake his aggressive streak?

Stacy: Yes, it's starting to get old. Alex has grown up so much, yet for some reason, he still struggles with this. It was definitely disappointing to see him resort to that again.

Paul: Yes. The way he treated Koracick was awful, and the outbursts are starting to feel like more of a plot device as opposed to a natural thing to occur.

'Cagney & Lacey' Star Sharon Gless Gives CBS Tips for Its Reboot

Continuing the trend of making TV in 2018 look exactly like TV in 1988 — the Roseanne reboot, the upcoming Murphy Brown revival — there's an updated Cagney & Lacey in the works.

This one will star Sarah Drew, 37, as Detective Christine Cagney and Michelle Hurd, 51, as Detective Mary Beth Lacey. That's all fine and dandy with the original Cagney, Sharon Gless, 74, though she does have some notes for CBS in case anybody's listening (Gless says the network hasn't bothered to consult her about the project).

"Cagney & Lacey was never about cops," she tells THR. "It...

Die-hard fans will remember Sarah's character as a nurse at the since-renamed Seattle Grace Hospital during seasons one through six. Her claim to fame?

Grey's Anatomy Round Table: High Praise for April and Eli!

It was a quiet, introspective hour of our favorite medical drama. 

On Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 17, Meredith met Nick Mars (Scott Speedman), and it stoked something in her she hasn't felt in a long time. 

Elsewhere, Owen and Teddy tried to rekindle their relationship and take it to new heights, but it backfired. With the help of a dying rabbi, April made a breakthrough. 

Join TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Paul Dailly, and Jasmine Blu for a thorough discussion. 

What was your first impression of Dr. Nick Mars? Did you enjoy the chemistry between Meredith and Nick?

Stacy: I really liked him. He made a great first impression and has already built a rapport with Meredith. There's an easy chemistry between them that doesn't feel forced at all. I'd like to see him stick around and see if something develops between them, as long as it's not too rushed.

Paul: He was great.

Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 17 Review: One Day Like This

This was a quiet, introspective hour of Grey's Anatomy that people will either love or hate.

There is this ambivalent quality to Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 17 that makes it difficult to rate and critique, to be honest. It'll be interesting to see how others respond to it.

There were so many deep, special moments, but there were also moments that felt too slow.

This installment slowed things down drastically, took us away from most of the plots, and narrowed in on three main characters. There was a lazy feel to it, and I don't mean in the sense that the writing was lazy, but rather it felt like watching an artistic Indie film.

Even some of the camera angles were artful.

Fear Not, Grey's Anatomy Fans! Sarah Drew Won't Be Gone From TV For Long

Last week, Grey's Anatomy received the shocking news that both Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew are leaving the show at the end of season 14. While we're of course devastated to see April go, there's a silver lining: Drew has already signed on to a new project!

According to Deadline, the actress has been cast in a new CBS series called Cagney & Lacey. Drew will play Cagney to actress Michelle Hurd's Lacey in the show, which is a reboot of the famous '80s police procedural. Deadline calls Cagney the "nimble and easygoing partner and protégée."

Naturally, we still have a bit of time with Drew's April Kepner before the 14th season of Grey's wraps. Yes, we're devastated to see her leave Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital and Jackson Avery behind, but we're taking comfort in the fact that Drew already has a place to land.

Cops & Ladies: Sharon Gless Remembers the Original 'Cagney & Lacey' (Exclusive)

Excitement is building over the pilot for cop series reboot Cagney & Lacey, which is set to star Grey Anatomy’s Sarah Drew as Christine Cagney and Blindspot’s Michelle Hurd as Mary Beth Lacey, a pair of New York City police detectives who couldn’t be more different. One of the people feeling that excitement is actress Sharon Gless, who played Cagney against Tyne Daly’s Lacey in the original series from the 1980s. “First of all, imitation is the highest form of flattery, so it’s quite flattering if they want to do it again," Sharon says in this exclusive chat from her Florida home. "It’s certainly time. I haven’t seen any of what they’re doing, but my feeling is that if you do Cagney & Lacey in this day and age, you could make it much darker than we were allowed to in the ‘80s.
