Another doctor is leaving Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
In a bombastic finale to the show’s 13th season, it was revealed that Dr. Stephanie Edwards (Jerrika Hinton) was alive after last week’s cliffhanger, but also that she is leaving the hospital, and the show, after enduring burns during a traumatic night. 
Last week’s episode found a rapist loose in the hospital, who first holds Edwards at knife-point, then sets a fire to attempt to escape the hospital and even takes a young girl hostage. Edwards is able to save the girl but suffers severe burns in the process. In the finale, confined to her hospital bed, Edwards tells her mentor Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.), “I quit.”
And though Edwards will be missed, her method of exit is rare on a show known for its tragic deaths. In a goodbye note on her Instagram, Hinton noted how great it was that Edwards got to choose her own path.

“I am eternally thankful for five seasons of (Grey’s Anatomy) and a graceful departure that underscores the courage it takes to choose yourself,” Hinton wrote. “That Stephanie literally walks through fire to reach freedom — her freedom — inspires me. It also makes me curious: What does freedom look like for you, dear viewer? After all, it’s not only the heroics that make her brave, it’s her finally seeing (and seeking) a better path.”
“You fans and viewers are some of the most devoted folks I’ve ever met,” she went on. “Thank you for your endless energy. Bosslady Shonda, Queen Debbie, and entire (Grey’s Anatomy) cast and crew forever remain in my heart. The #Shondaland family is a mighty, winding forest. I look forward to seeing you all in another clearing.”
