"Grey's Anatomy" Season 10, Episode 23, airs May 8 on ABC. Shonda Rhimes announced on Twitter the finale is "locked and loaded," which means that until then, the "Farewell to Cristina" continues. In this week's new episode, a resident gets fired. Meanwhile, all seems well for Jolex and Japril shippers.
Spoiler alert: This feature contains spoilers on Grey's Anatomy Season 10, Episode 23. Read at your own risk.
Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) makes up her mind about Preston Burke's (Isaiah Washington) offer. A Grey's 10x23 promo video hints her decision devastates Owen (Kevin McKidd). Meredith's Person is really leaving Grey's Anatomy. However, it seems in this TVLine report that Shonda Rhimes will let Yang leave alive.
If Cristina does not die and merely moves to Switzerland, many Grey's fans will be relieved. Many are still reeling from the death of Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) and Mark Sloan (Eric Dane).
"Farewell to Cristina" is the theme of the final two episodes of Grey's Anatomy Season 10. However, life goes on for the characters as they face their own trials. Jo (Camilla Luddington) and Alex (Justin Chambers) are making things work despite their new work set-up. Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April (Sarah Drew) are making plans about their baby. These couples have it easy.
Watch this SpoilerTV sneak peek into a Japril (Jackson and April) conversation.
Other Grey's characters are in for some challenges. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) is in trouble in Grey's 10x23. The parents of her "bubble boy" patient are unhappy despite their son's better condition. Callie (Sara Ramirez) takes another challenge. And a resident "will be fired" according to the ABC synopsis on Wetpaint.
Grey's fans should note that two residents are leaving the ABC medical drama series, too. Various reports confirm that Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles, who plays Leah Murphy and Shane Ross, respectively, are leaving. Will one of them get fired in Grey's Anatomy Season 10, Episode 23?
Derek McDreamy's (Patrick Dempsey) sister, Amelia (Caterina Scorsone), is still at Grey Sloan Memorial. Is this a permanent move for the Shonda Rhimes drama? Meredith and Amelia will be spending more time together in Grey's 10x23.
If Shonda Rhimes is already getting emotional on Twitter, how would the fans deal when the Grey's Season 10 finale airs on May 15?
The #GreysAnatomy season 10 finale is locked and loaded. Goodbye, my dearest Yang (who is based on my ACTUAL Cristina btw). I'm going home.

Cristina's departure will hurt many characters in Grey's. But now that Meredith has two kids and a stable married life (for now), Yang's Person will not get a chance to say "You're all I have" again. Some seasons ago, one of them could not live without the other. Now, what about Hunt? Watch the Grey's 10x23 promo video below. Catch Owen Hunt seemingly getting down on one knee.
