Previously on Sanctuary.....
For most people a hospital is a scary place, a hostile place. A hospital is a place where bad things happen. Most people would prefer church or school or home. But I grew up here. While my mom was on rounds, I learned to read in the OR gallery and play in the OR, I colored on old OR charts. A hospital was my church, my school, my home. A hospital was my safe place, my sanctuary. I love it here. Correction. Loved it here. Meredith works her way up to where she needed to be doing rounds for that morning. She was walking down the hall and passed a man that looked like a normal visitor. He stopped her asking where he could find Derek Shepard. She told him that he would be in his office.
The man just said, “Thank you,” and kept walking.
Meredith continued doing her rounds not thinking anything of this man but he was just a visitor with a concern wanting to talk and work out with Shepard. She just kept minding her own business and didn’t worry about him at all.
Cristina, on her way up to the floor that she would be working on, met the same guy that Meredith did on the elevator. He then asked Cristina the same question he did Meredith, “Excuse me, where would I be able to find Derek Shepard?”Sloan and Grey took Alex into a room and got supplies to help cover up the wound. They got it covered up and after a while they were all ready to go again. They all walked out of the room. They went to go to the floor where many people were so they could help evacuate them from their rooms and get them to somewhere, where they would be safe. Some of the nurses and doctors that were still in rooms with their patients just hide as well as they could so they could hide from the shooter.
Miranda Bailey and her intern was in a room with a lady. They noticed that the shooter was on the same floor that they were. The intern hid in the bathroom, the patient stayed covered up with the blankets over top of her. Doctor Bailey slid under the patient’s bed. When the shooter came in the room and uncovered the patient, but she acted like she was asleep, so he wouldn’t bother her. The shooter went into the bathroom and found the intern. He pulled him out of the bathroom and shot him.
Now on Sanctuary.....
Meredith and Cristina were on the same floor as the man was, and they were extremely scared and hid as well as they could in a supply room. The man was looking everywhere on the floor to see if anyone was there, except he didn’t check the supply room that the two were hiding in. The man ended up leaving the floor that they were on and going to the main floor that many people were waiting on to see if their loved ones were okay. Sloan, Little Grey, Lexie, and many other nurses were on this floor helping patients and loved ones. The man ended up shooting a nurse that was standing at the end of the nurses station, and leaving and moving on the the next floor.
The gunman finally got to the floor that he could Dr. Shepard’s office. He still didn’t know the way to his office. He found a long hallway to walk in that he figured may lead him to Shepard’s office. As the gunman approached the hallway, Shepard was walking the opposite direction towards him. The man asked him, if he knew where to find Shepard, Shepard then scarcely told the man that he was Chief Shepard.
The man took his gun out and pointed it at Shepard. Derek was trapped.
Derek Shepard is still trapped by the gunman in one of the biggest, main hallways that the hospital has. Meredith and Cristina were in the hallway across the hospital from where Shepard and the gunman were. The hallways walls were all glass, so Meredith and Cristina could both see shepard being trapped by the gunman in the hallway. Meredith needed to go save him she thought, since she was the one that was carrying their baby. Cristina just kept holding her back.
Finally, one of Shepard’s nurses walked into the hallway that he was being trapped with a gun pointed straight to his head. She needed him in one of the operating rooms. He couldn’t leave the hallway though or the gunman would end up shooting him.
In the hallway that they were standing in. The gunman told Shepard who he was and that his wife was a previous patient at the hospital and that he was looking for Chief Richard Webber. Derek Shepard told the gunman that Chief Webber no longer worked at the hospital. Derek explained to the gunman how he had been Chief of Seattle Grace-Mercy West. The gunman shot Derek Shepard after he told him that he was Chief.
Richard Webber had been outside of the hospital during the shooting. When some of the officers wasn’t looking he decided to sneak into the hospital to save some of his previous employees. Meredith Grey found Derek after he got shot. She was with him every step of the way. She supported him when he was in his time of need. She never left his side. Meredith wasn't going to let him die like this. She knew her life would never be the same.
