As the episode near its conclusion, Meredith woke up and immediately apologized to Richard for putting her on the ventilator.

When Jo was seen leaving the hospital after a day of a long shift, Richard approached her and offered her support. He needed to know what was going on with her.
Back at Meredith's, Link decided that he and Amelia should check in with one another every few weeks to ensure that they were okay with their plan to not go ahead with the wedding.
Owen had also apologized to Teddy for reacting a different way to her confession about Allison. He also confessed that he should've known that she was going through something. Though he's unsure what kind of support she needs right now, at the very least, Owen wanted them to be friends.
In the final shot, Maggie, Bailey, and Richard watched Meredith from outside her room, marveling at her as she was seen sleeping but in fact, she was awake.
