Dr. Derek's demise

My wife was watching Grey's Anatomy again, so I caught the good doctor's tragic exit too. (I guess that's a spoiler, isn't it? Sorry! But regular viewers apparently knew this was coming.)

An intriguing scene featured his wholly-improbable (but narratively compelling) internal commentary on the ineptitude of his attending physicians. I shouldn't say more, in case anyone wants to watch without further spoliation. But there's a cautionary tale here about following medical protocols, and possibly another about the cold indifference of the universe to Good Samaritanism.
