Which “Grey’s Anatomy” Star Is the King or Queen of Pranks?
Sometimes there’s nothing better or more traumatizing than a walk down Grey’s Anatomy memory lane.
This week, ABC skipped a new episode of the long-running medical drama and went for a real throwback Thursday, airing two of the show’s most famous episodes. They originally aired after the 2006 Super Bowl and featured guest stars Christina Ricci and Kyle Chandler in a tale about a man who made a mess with some old ammunition that got lodged in his gut.
Ricci played an EMT who decided it would be a good idea to stick her hand inside the man’s wound to stop the bleeding, and so she had to stick with him even as he went into surgery. Then, when everyone learned that the thing she had her hand on was essentially an unexploded bomb, she completely panicked. As she ran out on the whole situation, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), with very little thought, took her place. (Cue Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) pure terror, despite the fact that he was supposed to be in love with Addison (Kate Walsh) back then.)
Luckily, they all had Bomb Squad Guy Dylan, played by Chandler, to help them not blow up the hospital or themselves. Unfortunately, he only managed the latter.
In one of the most nightmarish moments on a show with 17 seasons’ worth of nightmarish moments, Dylan tried to walk away with the bomb to get it diffused and it went off, exploding him and a big chunk of what was then known as Seattle Grace Hospital. In spite of the fact that we only knew Dylan for these two episodes, we haven’t stopped thinking about him since.
In honor of Dylan’s horrendous, upsetting demise, we’re looking back at the Grey’s Anatomy deaths that have hit us hardest over the years, from the ones we’ve almost forgotten about completely to the ones we’re still mad about to this very day.

Grey’s Anatomy‘s season finale airs next Thursday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
