Not again, Shonda! That's what we thought when we first heard that "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 was setting an entire episode on a plane, with a crisis unfolding mid-flight, and that's what more fans are saying now that ABC has shared a promo for the hour.
We initially hoped the crisis would just be medical, and not a problem with the flight itself, but not only does there seem to be more than bad turbulence on the April 13 flight, "In the Air Tonight," the seriously bad flight is suffered, once again, by Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo).
Mer is probably still feeling traumatized by the loss of Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) in the Season 8 finale. If fans are still mourning Little Grey, she must be, too. The episode looks like it might be a bonding hour for Mer and Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson) -- and they may join the Mile High Club while mid-air -- but still. The torture of Meredith Grey, and "Grey's fans, has not gone unnoticed.
"Grey's" fans reacted to the promo exactly as you might expect:

Shonda got another thing coming if she thinks we're abt to have another plane crash episode nxt wk. Can't Mer fly in peace? #GreysAnatomy— Beth (@Life_or_Beth) April 7, 2017
There are so many more tweets just like that. This plane *probably* won't crash, but it looks like everything else goes wrong, including some kind of medical issue. Mer just can't catch a break.
"Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
