|Pilot:Â A plane has crashed in a remote area. Arizona’s screams of agony echo through the woods. She’s trapped under the aircraft’s wreckage. Cristina manages to free herself to find Meredith in a near-catatonic state on the ground. Mark staggers through the debris. Everyone is in a state of shock. Lexie and Derek are missing. Bangs against metal are heard in the distance. It’s Lexie. She’s in trouble. Mark frantically tries to find ways to save Lexie, who is trapped under a large section of the plane. Whatever they do for her, it won’t be enough. Lexie knows this. Mark, however, refuses to give up. Derek is hurt bad deep in the woods. His arm is caught between a mangled mass of metal. He uses a rock to smash it free. He’s still a long way from the others. The pilot, Jerry, is trapped in the cockpit of the wrecked plane. He can’t move his legs. Speaking of legs, Arizona is forced to put a splint on her own left one while remaining trapped. Lexie knows she doesn’t have much time left. She asks Mark to hold her hand. He finally acknowledges what’s happening. He lets Lexie know that she’s his true loveâ€”always has been, always will be. They make plans for a future they’ll never be able to share. Mark says they were meant to be. Lexie confirms this just before she passes away. It’s a heartbreaking scene. Meredith is devastated by the loss of her sister. She fears that Derek is dead as well. She tearfully lets Cristina know that she’s still her « person » even if she’s not hers. Moments later, Derek staggers out of the woods. Meredith breaks the news about Lexie as she works to repair her husband’s badly mangled arm. Cristina wants Mark to help build a fire, but he’s passed out with heart issues. Meredith uses a tube to drain the blood that’s pooling up inside him. No pun intended, but he’s out of the woods for now.
