|“||Are you really so messed up you can't let one person be nice to you?||”|
— Reed Adamson
Reed Adamson was a Surgical Resident working at Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital. She previously worked at the Mercy West Medical Center until it merged with Seattle Grace Hospital. She was murdered by grieving widower, Gary Clark because she refused to help him locate Derek Shepherd, stating she had a dying patient she needed to attend to.
Little is known about Reed's life outside the hospital. It is said that she and April Kepner were roommates and close friends, even though they are complete opposites. She was also friends with both Jackson Avery and Charles Percy. Other than that, her life will forever remain a mystery, due to the fact that it was tragically cut short.
Shooting at the HospitalEdit
She was the first person killed by Gary Clark during his shooting spree in Sanctuary. He was looking for Derek's office and she wouldn't help him, informing him that he was in a staff-only area, so he shot her in the forehead.
Her body was discovered by April Kepner, who slipped in her blood as she passed.
Reed was abrasive to those she didn't like or didn't know well, particularly the competing residents from Seattle Grace Hospital upon the merger.
Charles Percy was shown to have a large crush on her. She, in return, was the only person to call him Charlie.
She and April Kepner were friends and roommates.
Upon arriving at Seattle Grace, she had an interest in Alex Karev, stating there was something special about him during a conversation with Jackson Avery. She flirted with him for a while and comforted him during his divorce with Izzie Stevens, but he showed no real interest in her.
She moved on and had a one night stand with Mark Sloan after a party at Derek Shepherd's home while Sloan was also seeing Teddy Altman, but Mark and Teddy weren't exclusive at the time. Teddy actually walked in on them shortly after they had had sex.
