Grey’s Anatomy’s successfully running on its 17th season, and by now, if there’s one thing that irks the medical drama fans, it is the “death”, and not of the patients but the doctors. Considering that we’ve seen more deaths of doctors than one can count on their two hands, we’d think that fans would have nothing to be surprised about by now.

Now that’s where you’re wrong, as Grey’s Anatomy’s crossover event with Station 19 left everyone devastated when the mid-season finale unexpectedly killed the much-loved character, Dr. DeLuca.

Giacomo Gianniotti, who plays the role of DeLuca, was killed off following a heroic battle to stop a sex trafficker in a storyline that stretched back to last season following his death after getting stabbed.

The actor was introduced in Season 11 as a medical intern and the love interest of Meredith Grey, aka Ellen Pompeo. Following the season, Meredith is still in a COVID-19 coma. Deluca appears in her dreams while sitting on a beach and says, “I don’t know what happens from here, but no matter what happens, I want you to know I’ve never felt seen like you saw me.” before passing into the afterlife.

It’s been a really, really amazing and satisfying experience for the past month and a half shooting this episode and going through the process of making it.”

He also admitted being shocked about his character’s death, but he had a great conversation with the producer after reflecting on how DeLuca got a worthy send-off.
