Shonda Rhimes explained the 35-year-old actress' departure in a post Thursday following the show's emotional Season 13 finale. Scroll down to read our recap. During the finale, Stephanie survived last week's explosion but chose to quit her job at Grey Sloan in an effort to live her life to the fullest.

Another "Grey's Anatomy" Spin-Off Is in the Works at ABC!

Lying in the burn unit, in huge pain, Edwards tells Dr. Webber that she's spent her whole life in hospitals, and it's time for her to get out and see the world she's been missing.

"I spent my whole life in hospitals, my whole life". "That Stephanie literally walks through fire to reach freedom - her freedom - inspires me". Get the Details on Jo Wilson's Elusive Past! I want to breathe it all in, away from the monitors and the blood and the sterile gowns, away from saving other people's lives. I need to travel and hike and breathe.

The harrowing experience - coupled with her history as a sick child - made her realized she didn't want to spend any more time in hospitals.

Grey's Anatomy star Jerrika Hinton is confirming that she's hanging up her scrubs for good.

The arrival of Owen Hunt's (Kevin McKidd) sister, Megan (Bridget Regan), was enough to turn everything on its head. Though we didn't get to see the siblings' reconciliation, we're sure the Owen/Megan storyline will continue in Season 14.

The as-yet-untitled series marks the second spinoff from Grey's Anatomy after Private Practice, which ran for six season between 2007 and 2013.

"Shonda and I met nearly a year ago now, and we had a very lengthy and gratifying and really splendid conversation about work and creative process", Hinton told Variety of her decision to leave.

At the end of last week's episode, viewers were left wondering what the character's fate would be after she and a young girl were left trapped in the same room as a massive explosion. And - in another super-surprising moment!

A new love triangle is also set to simmer between Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary), Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams), and April Kepner (Sarah Drew).
