Subscribe To Grey's Anatomy Star Says Season 15 Finale Has 'A Lot' Of Surprises For Fans Updates
Grey's Anatomy star Jake Borelli (Dr. Levi Schmitt) understands the stress level going into the Season 15 finale, "Jump Into the Fog." When CinemaBlend asked for one word to describe the May 16, 2019 episode, Borelli went with "intense." As he added:
Who pulls through?! Well, he knows by now, since they already filmed the finale, and we know Levi "Glasses" Schmitt will be back for Season 16 since Jake Borelli was upped to series regular status for the 2019-2020 season. According to ABC's synopsis, the Season 15 finale will also show Levi try to talk some sense into his unraveling boyfriend Nico, which suggests Glasses at least survives the big fog pileup on the freeway.
That doesn't mean everyone is going to make it to Grey's Anatomy Season 16 after the big Season 15, Episode 25 finale:
Jake Borelli suspects fans will have feelings similar to his own once they are on the other end of the fog-driven action:
Last week's episode, "Drawn to the Blood," left Levi in a tight spot -- literally -- as one of three people in the back seat of a car trying to make it to Grey Sloan. Dr. Owen Hunt and Levi sat next to Frances Pinfield as they tried to rush her to the hospital to give Gus his much-needed blood donation. But then they got caught up in the pileup.
Teddy Altman -- pregnant with Owen's baby -- just saw her water break, and Amelia is the one trying to drive her to the hospital so she can give birth. Meanwhile, Maggie was stung by something out on an ill-fated camping trip with Jackson. They were also trying to rush back to the hospital, but got caught up in the fog traffic.
The promo did not hint to the drama to come between Nico and Levi, but we can probably expect that relationship to have a definitive moment one way or the other. For one thing, Nico was previously shown applying for a new job. He has also had an attitude problem ever since his mistake cost a young patient his life. He fought with Levi about that, since Levi didn't think Nico should go straight from that tragic mistake to his new job interview. Nico had a harsh reply about that being what Levi would do since his whole life has been defined by failure.
Add to that, Nico actor Alex Landi just booked a recurring role on a Netflix series. I asked Jake Borelli how much we should read into all of that -- Nico applying for a new job and his actor getting a new job:
Hmmm. Hoping for the best on that, but expecting a sad breakup. However, Jake Borelli emphasized that Levi has a bigger issue first -- getting out of that pileup in the fog with Dr. Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) and donor Frances. Turns out, filming that fog-fated but song-filled car trip was a lot of fun for the actor:
Check out that extended scene here, it's definitely worth it:
Jake Borelli praised actress Jane Wall as the guest star for these two episodes.
