Danny and Susannah. Still driving. Still fighting. They fight about the big wedding that had that took all of their savings, and Danny points out that it wasn't his decision but was just between Susannah and her mother. This appears to be finally way over her personal line, and she yells at Danny to stop the car. Still no accident. And I just don't care about their wedding, sorry.
In Richard's office, Meredith guesses that Derek is refusing to work with her. So maybe no time at all has passed? Wouldn't this have come up already? Regardless, that's not why she was called there. Richard tells her that the Board had a meeting that morning and thought that Richard's suspending Meredith wasn't nearly enough punishment for someone who so disgraced the hospital. Which is totally true, but yet given everything everyone gets away with on this show it wasn't going to be super surprising if Mere got off with a wrist slap. Meredith somehow doesn't get his point so he has to come out and point-blank tell her that he's very sorry, but she's fired effective immediately.
Danny and Susannah. Yet more fighting. It's hard enough watching characters in whom we are invested fight this much -- I need something horrible to happen to these guys, stat, if they are going to stay on my TV screen any longer. She is demanding that he stop the car and he yells at her that if she gets out that's it, and they are done. She gets out and stands near the front of the car, and then after a brief rumble she disappears out of view. Danny jumps out of the car to see what happened to her and he falls too, into a giant sinkhole that has opened up beneath them. Because this is TV -- and not just any TV, but Grey's Anatomy -- it's not enough to just have them fall into a suddenly-formed crater formed in a city street. No, after a moment, their car tips into the hole and finally falls in on top of them. Mere repeats the idea that one moment you can be on solid ground and then suddenly you're not. We're going super extra literal for the launch of season 8, it seems. We go to the white title screen which now includes, "Created by Shonda Rhimes."
