Does Addison Montgomery Die?

No, Addison Montgomery does not die. Ever since becoming a traveling obstetrician-gynecologist, Addison has been receiving death threats. She becomes the subject of several attacks and protests, which is the case when she returns to Seattle to train doctors in Bailey’s clinic as well. Over a hundred anti-abortionists protest violently against Addison and the clinic. Although Teddy Altman manages to find a way to disperse the protestors, it turns out to be inadequate to protect the famed doctor. After the end of the shift, Addison comes out of the clinic and talks to a trainee, whose books and papers fall onto the road. While helping her to pick the same up, Addison witnesses a car coming right at them.

Addison and the trainee get hit by the car. However, the former doesn’t die. The twelfth episode of the nineteenth season depicts that Addison only has a shoulder injury. Her life, unlike the trainee’s, doesn’t get threatened. Addison even saves the trainee’s newborn baby boy with her injured shoulder. After ensuring that the boy is fine, Addison gets forced to consult Atticus “Link” Lincoln, who puts an arm sling on the doctor and instructs her to not return to the road until she recovers completely. Although Addison doesn’t die, the viewers must be wondering about the chances of Kate Walsh leaving the series. Here’s everything you need to know about the same.

Is Kate Walsh Leaving Grey’s Anatomy?

As of yet, neither ABC nor Kate Walsh has released a statement concerning the actress’ departure from ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ for good. In the twelfth episode of the nineteenth season, Addison receives treatment from Link and Amelia Shepherd. Although Link asks her to not return to the road for a while, Addison knows that she is the only hope for several women who wants to move forward with an abortion. The episode ends with the doctor returning to the road with her mobile clinic. We may not see Walsh for a while since the episode is the final one of a two-episode event for which the actor returned to the series.

Although Addison leaves Seattle, we may haven’t seen the last of Walsh in the series. In the eleventh episode of the season, Bailey asks Addison whether she can train doctors at her clinic once every month. Although the latter doesn’t promise her presence, she may consider the same due to her relationship with the former and everyone at Grey Sloan. Walsh has always been vocal about her appealing experiences of working at the show, which indicates that the actress may continue appearing in the medical drama once in a while in guest capacities. We can look forward to seeing Addison accept Bailey’s offer to train more obstetrician-gynecologists so that she won’t need to fight her battle alone.
