Grey’s Anatomy Season 16 Episode 20 Recap:
Episode 20 begins by throwing the limelight on Richard Webber, who is suffering from some neurological issues. Bailey works with his peers at Grey Sloan Memorial and studies his history, which includes cases of appendicitis, a brain tumor, and electrocution. Currently, Webber is suffering from memory lapses, tremors, mood swings, and unpredictable behavior. Tom suggests that the patient might be suffering from dementia or Alzheimers. But Meredith thinks this is not the case.
Meanwhile, Tom is in for a shock when he sees his ex-wife Dana. She is accompanied by a young boy in a wheelchair. Guthrey resembles his brother, David, who had passed away earlier. And David was Tom’s son. Guthrey is diagnosed with a brain tumor that has spread to his spine.
Maggie, Meredith, and Amelia check Webber’s scans and they are all clean. At surgery, Tom breaks down as he cannot operate on a child who is the exact copy of David. Teddy asks Amelia to take charge but Dana is adamant about Tom doing the procedure. But as luck could have it, Amelia goes into labor in the midst of the operation and Tom is forced to take over. And well, Guthrey is saved!
