The doctor's of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital must deal with the victims of a car accident caused by a mother, raising questions of whether she caused the accident intentionally, bringing Meredith and April's personal and professional lives into a collision course. Meredith tries to cope with balancing her role as a surgeon and a mother in the wake of Derek's departure to D.C, as the future of their marriage becomes less and less clear. April is devastated when Jackson reveals Stephanie's discovery that their unborn baby suffers from the fatal disorder osteogenesis imperfecta, prompting both Jackson and Owen to grow concerned about her stability. Meanwhile, Herman is furious when she discovers that Arizona and Amelia acquired the scans of her tumour, but Arizona tries to get through to her when Amelia believes she can save her life and Bailey faces a case that makes her question her role as a mother.



"When exposed to trauma the body deploys it's own defence system. From the first second the brain received the signal that a catastrophe has happened the blood rushes to the organs that need help the most. Blood floods into the muscles, the lungs, the heart, the brain. The brain makes a decision for the rest of the body; either face the danger or run away. It's a mechanism designed to protect the body from harm. From knowing that what has happened might be irreparable. We call it shock."
"When shock wears off, when the body can accept that a trauma has happened, when it can let down it's defences, it's a scary moment. It's vulnerable. The shock response had protected us and it just might save saved us."
- Meredith Grey
