Grey's Anatomy fans left 'crying their eyes out' as beloved character is brutally killed off

GREY'S Anatomy fans have been left 'crying their eyes out' after a beloved character was brutally killed off.

The ABC medical drama returned for it's mid-season premiere on Thursday, and was also a two-hour crossover episode with another drama, Station 19.

The show certainly returned with a bang, as Dr. Andrew DeLuca was stabbed after he tried to pursue and expose a sex traffiker.

He was rushed into emergency surgery where Owen Hunt and Teddy Altman fought desperately hard to save him.

Meanwhile, DeLuca was seen visiting the same beach where his lover Meredith Grey has been going to in her dream sequence while battling Covid-19.

DeLuca's surgery was a success and he seemed to be on the mend, but he suddenly took a turn for the worse and had to be rushed back into the operating theatre.

Back on the beach, he told Meredith in another dream sequence: "I don't know what happens from here, Meredith.

"No matter what happens, I want you to know that I've never felt seen the way you saw me. I've never felt inspired the way you inspired me.

"You made me want to be not just my best self, but better. And yeah, I felt small around you sometimes. I felt insecure.

"I wanted something from you that I needed to give myself. But here, now, on this beach with you, I get it. I don't just get it, I feel it. I know who I am, my strength."

Meredith replied: "I'll miss you, if I go back and you don't, I'll miss you."

"You'll be okay, Meredith," he told her, as his mother called in the distance, "I have to go."

As DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) reunited with his mother on the beach, back in the operating theatre intern Reza Khan revealed DeLuca's heart wouldn't restart before calling his time of death.

Viewers were in bits over DeLuca's passing, with one writing on Twitter: "Greys has me crying the ugly cry tonight! #Greys #Station19 #Deluca #GreysAnatomy #brokenheart."

Another added: "Of all the people they could have killed off tonight, it had to be Andrew DeLuca, the one who was finally starting to take steps to get better.

"Teddy Altman was the perfect candidate, but no. Y'all had to kill DeLuca. Brb, crying over DeLuca's death #GreysAnatomy."

A third tweeted: "Billing the writers for the extra amount of eye cream I’m going to need after crying so hard tonight."

Grey's Anatomy airs on ABC in the US and on Sky Witness in the UK, with select episodes also available on NOWTV.
