23 Times TV Shows Did A Good Job Of Handling Grief


“There’s a beautiful scene in Grey’s Anatomy when Cristina is sitting with a little girl whose mom went into surgery. The girl asks what will happen if her mom dies, and Cristina says they’ll cross that bridge if they come to it. A few seconds later, Jackson walks up and shakes his head no, and Cristina tells the girl, ‘If your mom dies, there are a lot of things that will happen. First, you’ll feel like you could’ve done more to help her, but that’s not true. You did everything you could. I want you to remember that. Then, it’ll hurt every time you think of her, but over time, it’ll hurt less and less. Eventually, you’ll remember her, and it’ll only hurt a little.’ Cristina is speaking from experience, because her dad died when she was 7. Later on in the episode, Cristina gets really emotional and cries to Owen, ‘I miss my dad!’ It’s one of the most beautiful descriptions and depictions of how grief can hit even decades later.”
