Insurmountable fear. Unbearable pain. Cruel injustice. As surgeons, we are faced with it every day. Impossible diagnosis. Family tragedy. Looming mortality. We face yours while we face our own. And some days, in the thick of it, in the worst of it, we feel just as lost as you do. When there's no clear path, all we can do is put one foot in front of the other. All we can do is the next right thing, and then the next. In the darkness, in the fog, all we can do is feel our way through and try to trust that somehow, we will come out on the other side.

Jump Into the Fog is the twenty-fifth and final episode of the fifteenth season and the 342nd overall episode of Grey's Anatomy.
