It’s been two long months, but the Grey’s Anatomy (Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on CTV) drought has finally ended. The winter premiere on Wednesday night picked up right where we left off, with another storm hitting Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, forcing us to ask once again, why isn’t this hospital better equipped for natural disasters?

Wednesday night’s return included three very tense, very different elevator rides that have been building up all season.

The Sexy Elevator Award goes to Meredith and Andrew, who are continuing their ‘will-they-won’t-they’ thing that we are really loving. Andrew opened up about his famous surgeon dad, while Meredith opened up about studying Italian for three semesters during her undergrad. Sono confuso. They speak the same love language, adding yet another check for Andrew in his quest to win Meredith over Linc.

But the real story of the night was Miranda and Helm in the Anxiety Elevator. They were stuck in an elevator BETWEEN FLOORS and were rushing an ORGAN donor to CECE. This situation needs to be read in uppercase because dammit Grey’s, why must you make us fall in love with a sweet matchmaker only to kill her after her organ donor gets trapped due to a natural disaster?

Helm and Miranda both have panic attacks while stuck on the elevator and we feeeel them. We had trouble breathing just watching this episode. When Avery, Linc and Dr. Qadri attack the elevator with hospital equipment (really?), they’re able to finally rescue the doctors and the donor. They’re also helped by maintenance supervisor Will Sasso, who is not at all funny when his legs are crushed by the elevator. So, nope to taking elevators ever again. Like the rest of us, the Maintenance Supervisor wanted to see Cece live, and like the rest of us, he was crushed, literally and emotionally, when she died even after receiving a new heart. The matchmaker died from a broken heart. You’re a savage, Grey’s Anatomy, and we’re not the only ones who think so. Cece’s death quickly started trending on Twitter after this week’s episode.

Finally freed from the elevator, Miranda can have a full breakdown in her office in front of Alex, similar to the one we had on our couch watching Cece die. Miranda’s anxiety has been both palpable and understandable this season. She didn’t have much time off after her heart attack and her marriage to Ben hasn’t exactly been relaxing. Even with taking a step back from being Chief and putting Alex in charge, Bailey is still a freaking surgeon, which does not feel like a low stress job. Thankfully, no one was injured under her watch, but it can’t be a coincidence that the same episode that included Andrew opening up about his father, a brilliant surgeon who suffered from mental illness and accidentally killed four patients, is also the same episode where Miranda has a breakdown. That’s foreshadowing.

The Awkward Elevator Award goes to pregnant Teddy, baby daddy Owen, and newly in the loop Amelia. Who do we think this elevator ride was most uncomfortable for out of all the riders? Probably the patient with a license plate in his chest, but we’re not sure. It may still go to Teddy. She gets bonus points for probably having to pee really, really badly while being trapped on an elevator–our second biggest nightmare. Our first biggest nightmare involves an elevator and number two.

The only thing that distracted Amelia from the shock of Teddy’s pregnancy news was seeing the bloody surgery performed in front of her. It’s nice to know that even doctors get grossed out, because ohmygodthatwasgross. Grey’s is really burning through their fake blood budget this season.

In the end, Teddy is still in love with Owen, Amelia is going to give Owen time to figure out what he wants to do, and Owen continues being hailed as the nice guy who isn’t all that nice (cheated on Cristina, strung Teddy along, abandoned Amelia, yada yada).

Also, boo to Maggie for telling Avery about his mother and boo to Maggie and Avery for not letting Catherine tell her husband she’s sick. Uncool.

Would you want to take a few minutes to tweak this and lead with Cece’s death? And a few social reactions to it?
Apparently it bleeewwwww up on the internet last night and I wouldn’t mind glomming on to that social success. 😀

This week’s Grey’s Anatomy dealt a crushing blow to all of us who loved Cece
