Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 Episode 7 Recap

Episode 7 of Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 came out on 9th December 2021. Moreover, the episode was titled “Today Was A Fairytale”. The episode began with Maggie returning a day early to surprise her husband, Winston. After finally having his wife back, Winston decided to skip the campus recruitment drive for the hospital where he was supposed to help Bailey. Meanwhile, Meredith also could not make it to the recruitment drive as Hamilton called her early morning to get an update on the Parkinson’s disease cure project. Finding her alone, Bailey was angry that she had to do it all by herself. Moreover, things got tough for her when other hospitals started attracting students by offering toys and gifts. Then we saw Nick call in Meredith to take over a patient’s case that was close to him. But Nick was getting too involved during the surgery that was distracting Meredith.

So she asked him to leave the room. Although, later on, Meredith told Nick that she takes every patient personally whether she knows them or not. Hearing this, Nick apologized to her for interfering just because the patient was his childhood friend. On the other hand, we saw Lincoln and Jo taking care of the kids and going to a rapunzel play. However, things went sideways when an actor named Jeremy suffered pain in his chest and fell, badly injuring himself. Lincoln and Jo tried to keep him alive until the ambulance arrived and took him to the hospital. While Lincoln was performing surgery, Jeremy’s friend was scared to death for him and Jo realized that she was in love with Jeremy. After the surgery went well, Jo told Lincoln about the girl’s feelings for Jeremy.

Hearing this, Jo was surprised and later at dinner, tried to give hints to Lincoln that they might have a future together but he took it the other way and decided to keep his hopes up with Amelia. Meanwhile, Amelia bonded with one of the doctors with whom she was working on the cure. Moreover, they managed to get the cure’s viability over 92%, finally reaching the groundbreaking discovery of finding the cure for Parkinson’s disease.
