Grey's Anatomy says goodbye to Ellen Pompeo with emotional video

In anticipation of Ellen Pompeo's final – at least for now – appearance as Meredith on the Feb. 23 episode of Grey's Anatomy, ABC released an emotional video tribute paying homage to Ellen's 19 seasons on the medical drama. Set to a cover of Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars, which was first used in the climax of the Grey's season two finale, the video shows the many exhilarating highs and the sometimes crushing lows of Meredith's time in Seattle. "I have a lot of memories of people," Meredith says through a voiceover. "This is the place where I fell in love. The place where I found my family." The tribute features clips featuring former Grey's favourites like George (T.R. Knight), Izzie (Katherine Heigl), Cristina (Sandra Oh), Addison (Kate Walsh) and, of course, Derek (Patrick Dempsey). While Meredith is leaving Seattle behind for a fresh start in Boston – where she will work on finding a cure for Alzheimer's – she ends the video saying wistfully, "This is the place I will forever call home."
