Grey's Anatomy s13e24 Episode Script

Ring of Fire

1 [Indistinct conversations.]
Meredith: When life forces us to do something impossible [Conversations continue.]
an explosion happens inside the body.
[All screaming.]
A rush of hormones blasts through us, making us stronger - What the hell? - making us faster.
[Rumbling, electricity crackles.]
Biology overrides fear.
- And that makes the impossible possible.
- [Telephone rings.]
- [Alarm blaring.]
- Okay, so, either this is a drill or it's a real fire.
And if it's a real fire, then it probably has something to do with the guy, so I vote drill.
Despite that large boom you just heard? Really? All right, fine.
It's the guy.
The bad, escaped-rapist guy.
Why? Why?! - [Clicks.]
- Oh! The door's unlocked.
Well, yeah, fire would override a lockdown.
I'm gonna go find Stephanie.
- Just be careful.
- [Alarm continues blaring.]
[Indistinct conversations.]
Then entryway is closed, ma'am.
I just watched an explosion up there! And I already reported it.
The hospital's on lockdown.
Whoa! Did you see that? - Something exploded up there.
- Yes.
This entrance way will remain closed.
- East, South.
- Possibly in the South Wing? Four or five floors up.
- That's right near the NICU.
- And the CCU.
- We have to get in there! - Yeah, we need to get in there.
- There was an explosion! - He won't let us in! They're clear to come in.
I need their help.
- There's a lockdown! - I ordered the damn lockdown! Fire in the hospital trumps rapist on the loose.
They are cleared! [Sighs.]
- There's a rapist on the loose? - Where have you been? Firefighter Carroll: We have a multiple-alarm fire on floors five and six, from the service elevators east.
And we are concerned about structural damage on that floor.
We're diverting all incoming traumas.
Patients in immediate or impending danger need to be evacuated first.
Unaffected areas the E.
, radiology, nursery, daycare they stay put.
We have to prioritize.
Firefighter Carroll here will be directing you to the most urgent areas.
Yeah, and, uh, the woman with her arm in the air over there is Dr.
She is setting up a holding area? Outside by Parking Lot 1.
By Parking Lot 1.
Take evacuated patients to her.
She is in charge.
And if your patients can walk, they can transport themselves.
Okay, thank you Dr.
Do not be a hero.
Okay? If they can walk, let them walk.
Carry the rest.
The elevators are not working.
Do not try and use them.
- Work fast, but work safe.
- Okay.
[Indistinct conversations.]
And our man's still at large, so we're maintaining security at the exits, and we're keeping active sweeps.
Because just one hospital emergency wasn't enough Lord, don't make me have to tell Catherine Avery I burned her hospital to the ground.
Edwards? - [Alarm blaring.]
- [Indistinct conversations.]
Stephanie! Edwards?! Go, go, go! Stephanie? [Whooshes.]
- Hey, take this to Kepner outside.
- Right away.
I've been texting you.
Are you okay? [Sighs.]
They're trying to contain it near the CCU, but I heard it spread to the O.
I just figured I'd help with evac.
- Have you seen Nathan? - No.
No, and don't don't go thinking he's been burnt to a fiery crisp.
I'm sure he's fine.
No, I'm not.
I'm just I need to speak with him.
So, if you see him - Yeah.
- please let him know.
Gary: I'm legit, I swear! High alert in progress, sir.
I need to see some I.
I don't have it.
My wife has my wallet.
Our baby's upstairs for observation.
Please! Is there a problem? Y-You got to help me! I've looked everywhere.
I went I checked the the cafeteria, the gift shop, I-I tried looking outside and looking there What are you looking for? My daughter.
She's missing again.
Help me! [Coughing.]
[Metal creaks.]
Stephanie? [Coughing.]
Help! [Coughing continues.]
[Metal creaks.]
Erin? Stephanie? Erin! Erin, where are you? [Coughs.]
Don't do that! I thought you were dead! I thought you were gone! [Coughs.]
- Stephanie? - Yeah.
Erin, uh, hang on! [Coughing.]
Hang on! I don't like this.
Don't worry, uh, uh, Sondra.
You'll be fine, all right? Um, you're just gonna get a bit of fresh air, all right? Okay, we got Mr.
Pruitt downstairs safe and sound.
Who's next? Okay, these two very capable doctors are gonna carry you down.
Carry? Yeah, you're gonna have your own personal escort.
Down four flights of stairs.
But it's a smooth ride, I promise.
- Like Cleopatra.
- Exactly.
Richard: Okay, hurry up, okay? This place is full.
We've got to move quick.
Yes, sir.
Come on.
Let's go.
Just finished alerting all dispatchers to divert their traumas.
- Do you need hands here? - Absolutely.
Hey, you guys seen Edwards anywhere? I'm looking for a missing girl.
We don't have eyes on Edwards yet?! No, I've been looking everywhere.
Is she missing? Yes, yes.
The The rapist guy in the hospital that's her patient.
- She's with him somewhere.
- What? - I got to go.
- What? Did you alert police? About Edwards? No, no, good idea.
Could you do that? - I - Thank you.
We need all hands on deck, Avery! Let him go.
Webber, there's a protocol when it comes to this I am looking for a missing girl.
And, yes, the police are also looking for her.
Then maybe we should let the cops do their jobs, we focus on patients.
Okay, listen, she likes to run and hide.
She has brownish hair.
Her name is Erin.
All right.
We haven't seen her yet.
Grey! - Dr.
Webber - Look Look, I'll be fine, Dr.
Would you let the police know we have a resident missing, will you? [Indistinct conversations.]
[Alarm continues blaring.]
[Heart beating.]
Amelia: [Muffled.]
Okay, the kids are asleep, so it should be easy.
Ellis is just getting over a bug [Normal voice.]
so when she wakes up, just take her temp.
We are gonna be on the road for the next several hours, but after that texting is best.
Uh, you might want to eat something.
What's gonna take hours? Owen.
There's been an explosion at Grey-Sloan.
What? What do you mean "explosion"? So it looks like the helipad there is off limits.
How many casualties? Are there people hurt? Why didn't you wake me? It only affected a few floors, and they have got it covered.
Look, I'm the head of trauma, I need to be there.
We have to go.
It's gonna take a few hours to drive to Madigan Army Medical Center.
And we have to be there when your sister lands.
They suggested you might want to bring photographs or, - um, uh, keepsakes if you have any? - Right.
Because she might not remember.
You know what? You stay here.
I'm gonna go to the house and see if I can find an album No, no.
I know where everything is.
[Alarm blaring.]
Erin, don't be scared! Just hang on! All right, Erin? Okay.
Fire extinguisher.
Fire exting It's a lab.

There has to be a fire extinguisher somewhere.

He's very, very gone.
You keep your face low, okay? You keep your face low and stay as far away from the fire as you can.
I can't! I [Coughs.]

My leg it's stuck.
Don't worry.
Uh I'm coming.
Don't panic.

- Oh, God, just - Ow! Ow! Move it off, please! No, no, honey, it's keeping all the blood in your leg.
It hurts.
Uh, yeah, I know.

'Cause I am - [Fire roars.]

I got you.
I got you, okay? - All right, lie back.

Just lie back.
Relax as much as you can.
You know, when I was a kid, I was in the hospital a a lot.
- And, uh they would have to - [Groaning.]
Ow! Ow! Oh, that's okay.
I'm sorry.
They would do a bunch of stuff that hurt me, too.
And I hated it.
I hated it.
So, do you know what I would do? [Groaning.]
What? - I would clench my fists, real tight tight as I could.
- Mm-hmm.
Sometimes my, uh, nails would dig in to my hands, and I would even break the skin sometimes, but it helped.
The more I thought about my hands, - the less I thought about anything else.
- Mm.
And sometimes I would just scream my head off.
And it would drive my doctors crazy, but it made me feel better.
- Okay.
- Okay? Okay.
All right, Erin [Breathes deeply.]
Look, what I'm about to do is really gonna hurt, Erin.
It's gonna hurt a lot, and so I want you to clench your fists.
Clench them real tight as tight as you can for me.
And if you need to scream, you just go ahead and scream, okay? - All right.
- Okay.
Oh, okay.
Here we go.
[Radio chatter.]
[Sirens wail.]
I want patients organized by condition and severity! The temp CCU area needs ventilators and crash carts on standby! And please check everyone for smoke inhalation! Erin! Erin! - What's going on? - Where is Oh! What We don't know.
A fire, explosion There's no kids out here.
How are my PEDS patients or the NICU? Listen, the fire is on the south side, like four floors up.
The kids should all be okay.
What happened with Jo's husband? You never called me back.
Yeah, the trip was a waste.
So, I'm looking for this little girl.
She's 8, she's super-smart, she keeps ditching her parents.
- Look for her.

April: Hey.

She's stable.
She just needs to stay on her heparin infusion Are you okay? [Breathing heavily.]
Yeah, it's Yeah, yeah.
Not a big fan of fire, you know? It's [Chuckles.]
If I'm being honest, this is, uh kinda my worst nightmare, actually.

Hey, uh, you didn't happen to see Jackson in there, did you? - Yeah.
- Yeah? Right when the alarms went off, and then he took off, running after Edwards like he was fireproof.
- He's not back yet? - No! Of course not.
- Typical.
- Typical? Yeah, he ran into a burning bus once to save a child.
He's the kind of guy that runs into a fire, apparently.
I'm sure he's fine.
Me too.
[Erin screaming.]
That's okay.
All right, I just want to loosen this and see if there's less bleeding, okay? Uh, nope less blood.

I don't need any help! Aah! Aah.
Ma'am, did you just have surgery? For God's sake, I'm not a "ma'am.
" My name is Cheryl, and surgery would be better than this.
Being sliced open and gutted would be better than this.
It's just kidney stones! Okay.
Look, no, we gotta get you out of this hallway.
There's way too much smoke, all right? I'm gonna pick you up.
Is that okay? No way! [Breathing quickly.]
I'm perfectly capable of aah! of walking and aah! Okay.

Do you not hear the alarm? The fire is on the floor above us! Nathan: I was midway through a lobectomy when the alarm went off.
I'm not leaving a patient open on the table.
[Monitor beeping.]
Well, okay.
Glove me.
- What the hell are you doing? - Well, you're right.
You can't walk away from the patient.
And it'll be quicker if the two of us work together.
This floor is supposed to be clear.
You need to evacuate.
Sir, I have a man's lung in my hand.
We're working as fast as we can.
- How long do you need? - 15 minutes.
No more.
Sir, we're looking for a missing girl.
She's 8 years old.
Her name is Erin.
We've all got our eyes out for her.
Thank you.
[Door opens, closes.]
- [Coughing.]
All right.

Let's get her on a morphine drip.
All right, you're gonna be all right.
- We have been looking for you! - You scared the crap out of me! - Oh, I need some O2.
- Yeah, of course you do.
That's what happens when you don't listen and and instead you inhale an entire hospital full of smoke! - Ow.
Watch it.
- Stupid heroics! [Clears throat.]
I was trying to help her.
You are a surgeon, not a firefighter! I wasn't trying to fight a fire, all right?! - I was trying to save Edwards! - Don't yell at her.
- She is the mother of your child! - Okay And what would I have told Harriet?! - I'm fine, April! - Breathe.

You're a civilian, and the fire is not completely contained.
We are wasting time out here.
If it helps us find this guy sooner No, we're seeing sporadic flare-ups inside.

If there's anything you need, don't hesitate to ask.
- We're here for you.
- We appreciate it.
[Normal voice.]
Absolutely, ma'am.
If you'll just walk this way.
My own true love I know it's hard to know exactly what to expect, so you should be prepared.
[Distorted voice.]
She may not know who you are.
Stay a while with me She may not trust where she is.
If I had a friend [Normal voice.]
She could be fine, [Distorted voice.]
or she may communicate in extremes.
All on this earth There could be yelling.
So it's best to avoid any potential triggers, any sudden movements, sudden noises anything like that.
You've been a friend to me [Air horn blows.]
And why did it take us so long to find them? I was sidetracked by treating patients, which is my job.
- I was doing my job.
- [Chuckles.]
- That "protocol" states that - [Laughing.]
I'm sorry.
If anyone could follow protocol around here, Edwards would be perfectly fine right now.
I'm sorry.
What? She was supposed to be in counseling.
But Dr.
Webber over here decided she should be able to work today.
If you hadn't completely undermined me - If I hadn't compl - Then a little girl would be dead! Dr.
Minnick I don't believe that there's a place for you in my hospital any longer.
Bailey, hold on.
It's Chief Bailey, and I am not holding on.
She is holding on.
She is is clinging to these procedures and protocols and cannot see when to let go in order to save the life of a patient a child! I do! I know! Because I was taught right.
Edwards certainly knew, because she was taught right.
This is not some factory that turns out surgical robots.
We make doctors.
Thinking, feeling, human doctors.
And we will teach them right.
- Hey.
You're not going home? - Uh, nope.
Incoming's two minutes out.
Well, look, I just wanted to, um say I'm sorry about earlier.
I yelled at Jackson when I shouldn't have Well, he was an idiot, and he almost died, so I just meant that, you know He's your baby's father, and I went too far.
I was just mad because he and I had been talking earlier when the alarms went off Maggie.
What? Jackson, he, uh [Chuckling.]
He likes you.
I know him, so I know what that looks like.
- And, uh - [Siren approaching.]
He likes you.
He has feelings for you.
No, he doesn't.
Why would you even Because I have a feeling that you like him, too, so you know what? You should just tell him.
I got to get out there.
[Siren wailing.]
[Wailing stops.]
[Radio chatter.]
- Hey.
Long night? - Yeah.
You want to go back to my place? Sleep it off? Or maybe do some other stuff before we sleep it off? And by "other things," I mean sex.
You want to go have some overly tired sex? I shouldn't.
I have to pack up.
Pack up what? I just got fired.
Wha [Sighs.]
I'm so sorry, but you know I'm gonna have to do this again today, right? Mm-hmm.
Oh, it's looking good, it's looking good.
Edwards, I can turn up the morphine.
You don't need to be in this much pain.
Not yet, not yet.
[Breathing deeply.]
Mnh! [Breathes deeply.]
How're you feeling? [Shakily.]
I've had better days.
- Your burns are severe.
- Mm-hmm.
But we are all with you.
We are gonna get you back.
But, uh it'll be a while before you step in an O.
Oh, yeah, yeah.
Actually, about that.
I've spent my whole life in hospitals.
My whole life, and I I think I need to see everything that's not the inside of a hospital.
[Breathing sharply.]
I need to travel and and explore and and hike and and breathe and breathe - [Breathes deeply.]
- Okay.
Breathe Breathe real air.
So deep.
I want to breathe it all in.
Away from the monitors and the blood and the and the sterile gowns, away from saving other people's lives.
I want my own.
It's time It's time I live my own.
[Breathing sharply.]
[Monitor beeping.]
You changed my life, Dr.
You have.
You You taught me how [Grumbles, laughs.]
You taught me how to take my past and find my path.
Thank you.
Thank you.
I think I found it.
Which means? Which means I quit.
Okay, DeLuca, turn that morphine up as high as it'll go, please.
[Shuddered breathing.]
[Monitor beeping.]
[Calum Scott's "Dancing On My Own" plays.]
[Shuddered breathing.]
Somebody said you got a new friend [Radio chatter.]
But does she love you better than I can? Nathan? Are you okay? Where was she? I don't know.
Well, who had her? Is she hurt? I wish I knew more.
Do we know for sure it's her? I mean, have they confirmed that? Apparently so.
I'm not really sure how it works.
Where is she now? Oh.
And, yeah, I know it's stupid They're taking her to Madigan Army Medical Center.
Owen and Amelia are on their way now.
I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her Tell, uh, Pierce I I had to go.
Are Are you okay? Can you drive? And someone needs to contact my patients.
Tell them that I finished surgery.
Don't worry.
We'll take care of it.

- Don't do that.
Don't apologize.
If this were Derek, I would've already been gone.
I can drive.
I'm all messed up, I'm so out of line Get out of here! Go! I can drive.
[Engine starts.]
Nobody wakes up thinking, "My world will explode today.
" Stilettos on broken bottles I'm spinning around in circles "My world will change.
" And I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her [Tires screech.]
Oh oh oh - Nobody thinks that.
- And I'm right over here - But, sometimes, it happens.
- Why can't you see me? - Oh oh oh - [Helicopter blades whirring.]
Sometimes, we wake up, we face our fears And I'm giving it my all But I'm not the guy you're taking home Ooh, ooh ooh I keep dancing on my own And, oh, nah We take them by the hand.
So far away - And we stand there, waiting - But still so near - hoping, ready - The lights come on - The music dies - for anything.
