Ellen Pompeo Sends Note to Fans During 'Grey's' Season Finale

Ellen Pompeo is speaking out about the Grey’s Anatomy finale in a touching note that she posted while the episode aired on the east coast.

The actress didn’t give away any spoilers from the season 14 finale, but she did warn fans that they will likely be crying and laughing throughout the episode.

“Over the last 14 seasons I’ve cried many tears on screen and off. This show has brought me so much joy and so much laughter, but truth be told it has never been easy. This year was no different,” Ellen said, alluding to the departures of Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw.

“Saying goodbye to characters, cast mates, friends is always very hard regardless of the circumstances. What remains and what keeps us going is the incredible passion and loyalty of our fans. So in classic Grey’s bittersweet style we will leave you tonight with tears in your eyes and hopefully smiles on your faces. Thanks for riding with us on this rollercoaster known as Shondaland. Much love, Ellen,” she added.

Ellen Pompeo Shares Her Reaction to Arizona & April Leaving 'Grey's Anatomy'

Ellen Pompeo poses for photos at the launch of Young Living’s baby care line Seedlings on Tuesday (May 1) in New York City.

The Grey’s Anatomy actress opened up to ET at the event to discuss Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew‘s exit from their hit ABC series.

Jessica plays Dr. Arizona Robbins and Sarah plays Dr. April Kepner.

“My first reaction was, ‘What? What do you mean? Why?’ And then you go through levels and stages of grief. It’s hard for them, it’s hard for us, it’s hard for the writer who had to make the choice, [who] had to make the creative decision,” Ellen said. “You have to try to support the girls. It’s just not easy for anyone, but I don’t want to make it about me. It’s about them and I just tried to be just as supportive as I could be to everyone involved.”

Ellen Pompeo Says Goodbye to 'Grey's Anatomy' Co-Stars Sarah Drew & Jessica Capshaw

Ellen Pompeo is bidding farewell to two of her longtime Grey’s Anatomy co-stars.

After Thursday night’s (April 19) episode, the 48-year-old actress shared two separate goodbye posts on Instagram to Sarah Drew and Jessica Capshaw after they made their final appearances on the ABC medical drama.

“Boom… @thank you @jessicacapshaw for bringing it the way you have brought it for 10 amazing years… what a blessing you are and what a contribution you made to television history,” Ellen wrote to Jessica. “Lit that screen up with your glow on the LGBT community… making a difference and making it all look so easy… ⭐️⭐️⭐️💥💥❤️💔⭐️GOAT #representationmatters #loveyou”

While honoring Sarah, Ellen wrote, ““THANK YOU to this lady….@thesarahdrew you served up the sugar and spice for 9 years and it’s been a blast. Your passion and talent for storytelling has touched so many people provoked thought and Greys is a better show because of it and you. #japrilfansdontplay.”

Back in March, it was announced that Sarah and Jessica would be exiting Grey’s after season 14, and Ellen quickly put an end to rumors that her major salary increase was to blame.
