This story contains spoilers from the season 19 fall finale of Grey's Anatomy.

Grey's Anatomy fans, it's time to say goodbye. After 19 seasons of leading the medical drama, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) has clocked in her final day as an attending in Seattle.

Throughout the latest ABC installment, viewers have seen the titular character question her choices in the medical field. In all came to a head when her house burned down leading Meredith to take the plunge and email her resignation. This gave way for her move to Boston for a job in Alzheimer's research. While the actual timeframe has been teased the entire season, a promo for the winter premiere indicated when Meredith — and subsequently, Ellen — will take off her scrubs.

As the emotional 30-second spot showed Meredith on her final day at Grey Sloan Memorial, everyone attending at the hospital will gather together to give her a proper sendoff. "On February 23, one chapter ends and a new one begins. 💙," the show's official Instagram captioned the clip on November 10.

Understandably, folks were distressed over her impending exit and many didn't hesitate to share their feelings on social media.

"No Meredith means no Grey’s, I’m done," one person passionately wrote on Instagram. "You can’t have Grey's Anatomy without Meredith Grey," another follower remarked. "It's not Grey's Anatomy with Meredith Grey. She made this show what it is," a different TV-goer added.

While Meredith may be leaving Seattle soon, this doesn't mean Ellen herself is stepping away from Grey's Anatomy. Back in August, Deadline reported that she'll still be an executive producer and will narrate future episodes. This decreased role will also give the actress the chance to executive produce and star in a limited series for Hulu.

As for how Ellen feels the show will fare after she leaves, she has no worries."[Grey's Anatomy] will be just fine without me," she told Deadline in September. "I’m going to always be a part of that show. I’m an executive producer on that show. I spent two decades of my career on that show — it’s my heart and soul. I’ll never truly be gone as long as that show is on the air."

So, does Meredith's exit signal the beginning of the end for Grey's Anatomy? We'll just have to wait until next year for the answer.
