'Grey's Anatomy' Plane Crash: Season 8 Penultimate Episode Ends With Cliffhanger Ending (VIDEO)

Fans of "Grey's Anatomy" (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on ABC) have become used to the regular season-ending cliffhangers, and Thursday night's Season 8 penultimate episode was no exception.

Most of the main characters were flying to Boise, Idaho when their plane crashed. With bodies strewn on the ground viewers were left not knowing who may have survived the impact.

Back in April 2012 "Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes told The Hollywood Reporter that one of the main characters would die in the Season 8 Finale: "We're not talking [about] some guest star [who] is going to come in and die kind of thing," she said. "It's a a big death and it's fairly shocking."

Find out who didn't survive the plane crash on the "Grey's Anatomy" Season 8 Finale, which airs Thursday, May 17th at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
