**WARNING SPOILERS** Welcome to Grey Chatter for the Season 10 Finale of Grey's Anatomy! Here you'll find highlights, quotes, observations and more. Be warned, we're talking about details from the episode so stop reading this stat if you don't want to be spoiled.
Time to Go: Cristina is desperate to finish things at the hospital. That’s why she wants to work on her longtime patient, Link. Nothing feels finished. Meredith says she doesn’t feel finished because this isn’t the end for her. She has to go. Meredith will help her.
This Is It: Cristina says goodbye to Richard and Bailey, but not Shane. He’s going to Switzerland to be with his teacher. Later. Right now, Cristina has a plane to catch. She finds the OR where Owen is in surgery. She knocks on the observation window. This is it. This is their goodbye.
Dance it Out: Meredith rushes Cristina outside where a cab has just pulled up. She says, “I love you. Call me when you get there.” Meredith sends the cab away. Cristina looks back at her best friend in the world through the cab window. Then she looks forward. It’s time for her to go forward. Well, maybe not just yet.
Promises Are Made: Bailey is giddy about the news that Richard is recommending her for Cristina’s seat on the board. What she doesn’t know is that Cristina left her shares in the hospital and her seat on the board to Alex.
Revelation: Richard has a chat with the new head of cardio, Dr. Maggie Pierce. He learns she was adopted. Her birth mom’s name is all over the hospital. She was Ellis Grey. Needless to say, Richard is totally thrown by this revelation.
No New McDream House: Before Cristina left, she told Meredith that she’s the sun. She shouldn’t let what anyone wants eclipse what she needs no matter how McDreamy they may be. That’s why Meredith can’t sign the papers on the home Derek found for them in DC.
Meredith may not be going anywhere, but Cristina is already gone. She’s enthusiastically beginning her new adventure as Director of Cardiothoracic Surgery so may miles away from the place where she started. It’s just geography. Wherever Dr. Cristina Yang goes, she’ll be brilliant.
