Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 Episode 6 Recap
The Grace Sloan Memorial hospital has been facing the COVID-19 crisis head-on, and season 17 episode 6 of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ titled ‘No Time For Despair,’ brings newer and tougher challenges for the staff. Richard put the hospital under a surge protocol after another facility starts to fall short of resources to deal with rapidly increasing COVID-19 cases. On a brighter note, Meredith finally wakes up from her sleep after eight days, and her condition stabilizes. Tom’s condition also improves alongside Meredith’s, and the two share a moment of reprieve amongst all the drama. Back at Meredith’s, Maggie is surprised by Winston, who arrives to meet her.
Jada, Shanice, and their kidnapper Bob are brought to the hospital. Owen moves the girls to a different floor and faces a tricky challenge as Bob needs immediate surgery. Owen decides to save Bob’s life due to his oath to save all patients. With the help of Amelia, he performs the surgery and taunts Bob that he’ll be spending the rest of his life behind bars. Later, Owen and Teddy have a conversation, and Teddy confesses about her time with Allison.
Richard tries to convince Bailey to take a break and grieve over the loss of her mother, but she insists on continuing her work. Bailey is eventually persuaded into taking a moment for herself by DeLuca and admits to him that she feels much better. Shortly afterward, DeLuca spots Opal, the woman associated with the trafficking ring from the previous season. DeLuca immediately asks Carina to help him follow and keep track of Opal.
The episode’s biggest moment arrives when Meredith, despite her weak health, attempts to help a code blue patient in the room next to hers and passes out after performing CPR on the patient. After consulting Owen and Amelia, Richard decides to put Meredith on a ventilator.
