- We never know when people are gonna be taken from us
We lose people at the moment we least expect it. George got hit by a bus. Izzie disappeared. Derek died because he didn’t get a head CT when he was first brought to the ER. We have to take advantage of the time we have with everyone in our lives.
- What's meant to be will always find a way
Mark and Lexie ended up together, as I like to think of it. Meredith and Derek ended up together eventually too. Both relationships may have ended by death, but they still ended up together.
Arizona cheated on Callie, but she was able to move past it to try to reconcile. Owen cheated on Cristina, but they also tried to reconcile. Forgiveness is truly powerful.
- People are not defined by where they came from
Karev came from a broken family. Izzie grew up in a trailer park. Cristina went to Stanford. Meredith became a surgeon because it was in her genes. They all had stereotypes behind them, but were able to move past them to be themselves.
- “He is not the sun, you are”
This doesn’t even need an explanation
What's meant for us always comes back for us
Derek came back to Meredith after Addison, then later on he came back from D.C. when he chose Meredith over his new job. All that matters is that they ended up together after each situation.
