Free Falling

Series 8 - Episode 1 Free Falling



Once you see the sinkhole on Seattle’s streets in this season-eight opener, you’ll never gripe about the state of Britain’s roads again. No sooner has this gigantic crevice opened up during the morning rush hour than a husband and wife fall straight into it: she gets trapped under a car, he has to amputate her leg to free her. It’s like 127 Hours but with a slushier soundtrack.


The final year of residency begins with Meredith's career in jeopardy, as she faces the consequences of tampering with Derek's clinical trial. April's role as chief resident proves to be difficult as the team deals with a sinkhole in Seattle, and Cristina and Owen battle a difference of opinion towards their unborn child.
