Greg Germann as Dr. Tom Koracick on Grey’s Anatomy
Germann plays Dr. Tom Koracick. He is a brilliant neurosurgeon who is unapologetic in his arrogance and his romantic pursuits since 2017. His character brought a component of high spirit this season. This season of Grey Anatomy was filled with grief and tension as the series showcased the pandemic. Greg’s character and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) battled covid, and Koracick’s hilarious and witty attitude was definitely a highlight of this season.
Even though his character suffered a lot this season, he got a happy ending. From battling Covid to fulfilling his romantic life, Koracick was a success in this installment. He recovered from the diseases, and his love triangle situation was also solved in the end. Teddy let him go. Hence, Koracick reconciled with Owen, giving the three characters a perfect closure.
In his last episode, the fans see him treating an elder Native American. While operating the patient, he gets a feeling from the inside to change something about himself. Later, he finds himself getting amused by the speech that his “elder” patient was given to his granddaughter.
Later that evening, we see him meeting Jackson (Jesse Williams) and offered him a helping hand in Boston. He then gets into a conversation with him and tells that he was the only white guy among the six who survived the disease (Covid).
In the end, he tells Jackson that he wants to be an ally. He wants to treat people, he wants to help them, but not for the money. That is, he wants to help him at the foundation in Boston. And the two leave together on a new path.
