“Greys Anatomy” fans were left in tears Thursday night after the medical drama midseason premiere killed a beloved character.
Dr. Andrew DeLuca, played by actor Giacomo Gianniotti since 2015, was stabbed while trying to track down and expose a sex trafficker.
In the episode, which was also a crossover with “Station 19,” it appeared DeLuca was going to pull through at first.

But then while on the operating table he had a vision of love interest Meredith Grey, who’s been in a coma battling COVID-19.
DeLuca told her in a beach dream sequence, “No matter what happens, I want you to know that I never felt seen the way you saw me. I 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 to myself. But here, now, on this beach with you, I get it. I don’t just get it; I feel it, I get who I am, I know my own soul, my strength.”
“I’ll miss you. If I go back and you don’t, I’ll miss you,” Grey told DeLuca.
“You’ll be okay, Meredith,” he said. “I have to go.” Then, he ran over to his mother who was waiting for him.
Gianniotti reacted to his character’s death on social media. “So much I could say… but all that comes to mind is thank you. Thank you to all the fans who loved Deluca as much as I did. Telling his story was and will be one of the great honors of my life. Thank you. @GreysABC,” he tweeted.
