|Pilot:Â Simultaneously surgeries are taking place to save the lives of two of Grey-Sloan Memorialâ€™s own. Catherine Avery (guest star Debbie Allen) just about blows a gasket when she hears that Bailey is operating on Richard in his fragile state. She screams at her to close him up proto from the observation room. Owen doesnâ€™t appreciate the screams from above, but ultimately agrees itâ€™s the best course of action. He needs to bolt as Heather is crashing. By the time he reaches her OR itâ€™s too late. Dr. Heather Brooks is gone. A guilt-ridden Shane runs away down the hall. Heatherâ€™s surgeon and mentor, Derek, seeks comfort with his family. Meredith thinks itâ€™s a good idea for the interns to hang out until Heatherâ€™s mother arrives. They should come up with some good stories to share. Meredith recalls a Jell-O story she told Georgeâ€™s mom after he died. It was a sweet enough tale to elicit a smile from a distraught woman. The problem for the interns is that they donâ€™t have any great Heather stories. They actually donâ€™t know much about each other at all. This leads to an impromptu opening up session that has everyone but Shane laughing up a storm. All smiles disappear once Heatherâ€™s mom arrives. With still no stories to tell, they rip off the Jell-O tale. It does the job and makes mom smile. April tries to mourn the loss of Heather with Jackson, but Stephanie needs him more. Matthew witnesses his fiancÃ©eâ€™s disheartened demeanor from afar. He realizes proposing in front of a hundred people doesnâ€™t really give a person an opportunity to say no. In other news, Sasha the cop receives word that her organs are starting to fail. This could be a fatal blow. Brian, her fiancÃ©, wants to get marriedâ€”as in right away. Sasha is game, too. Jackson goes online to get certified as a chaplain. The moving ceremony and a verbal tongue-lashing from Jackson have April rethinking things about Matthew. This time she proposes to him privately and heâ€™s all in.
