Was Patrick Dempsey Fired From 'Grey's Anatomy' Over Inappropria
Rumors started circulating this week that Patrick Dempsey was fired from "Grey's Anatomy" because he had engaged in inappropriate behavior with one of the female staffers on the show.

5/14/2015 12:30pm EDT
They’re never, ever, ever getting back together. I’m talking about all the sunk relationships on “Grey’s Anatomy,” we’ve ranted about, cried over and cursed Shonda Rhimes’ poisoned pen for. Never was there a tale of woe than the love lives of docs at Grey-Sloan. Sorry, Shakespeare; they’ve got Romeo and Juliet beat by 11 seasons.

Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey)

No one is safe in Shondaland, including Mer and Der. We watched their twisty romance turn from a one night stand to a sappy family-themed Folger’s commercial. Yet, no amount of candle houses, Post-...

10 Shocking Moments  From 'Time Stop' Leading Up To 'Grey's Anat
Meredith Grey is officially back in scrubs. According to the interim chief—Webber—a year-long break is more than enough time for Grey to get back in the saddle, following Derek’s death. Good thing since Grey Sloan is facing yet another massive trauma. A major commuter tunnel collapsed resulting in 13 deaths and a handful survivors, including a woman in labor, her fiancé and a high school kid. “Time Stops” is the penultimate episode before the season finale and all the pieces are in place for a heart-wrenching end to Season 11.

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: Meredith Begins Again With Someone New
Derek is gone, guys. The more we say it the easier it will be to accept. And if you’re looking for a silver lining look how much money Shondaland saves without Patrick Dempsey. Sorry, too soon?

Okay, well, let’s jump into the squeezed in two-hour special—see ya next week Scandal—Rhimes orchestrated in response to distraught McDreamy fans. Meredith has the unfortunate task of announcing, or whispering “Derek is dead” to the Grey/Sloan surgeons before collapsing on the floor.

By now, you shouldn't be surprised that people are still upset about Dr. Derek Shepherd's tragic death on last week's episode of Grey's Anatomy. We know how unpredictable shows in Shondaland can be, but this was a death nobody saw coming, and it was especially shocking knowing that Patrick Dempsey still had another year left on his contract with ABC. Last week's explosive episode, "How to Save a Life," was penned by series creator Shonda Rhimes and certain scenes seemed to pay homage to the show's lengthy past:

Patrick Dempsey
Rumors have been circulating that Patrick Dempsey is leaving "Grey's Anatomy" after 10 years of playing Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd on the medical drama. According to Page Six, the actor's "diva" behavior is making creator Shonda Rhimes think about giving him the boot.

An insider said: "Patrick has been acting like a diva and has clashed with Shonda. She suspended him for a while, and the word on set is that he isn’t coming back full time.

"Given all the past problems with Katherine Heigl and Isaiah Washington, there is little tolerance on the show for troublesome talent."

'Grey's Anatomy' Preview Video: Derek Plays Hero (Watch)
On the eve of an “episode America will not forget,” Shondaland is releasing more clues into Derek’s disappearance.

After witnessing a car crash en route to his D.C. meeting, Derek pulls car crash victims out of their toppled car, and shepherd’s (see what I did there) them away from the smoldering car before it explodes.

Quick thinking, McDreamy!! And it more than makes up for the non-existent first aid kit in his car. See the full teaser video below.

However, it’s still a mystery why flashing emergency lights were outside Meredith’s house last week. Any theories? Sound off below.

'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap: Derek Is Found?
“Where is Derek?”

With the blue-eyed resident he locked lips with in D.C.? Nope. Based on next week’s promo, for a non-singing “How to Save a Life” episode, he’s speeding down the highway…until he witnesses a car accident. Being McDreamy he stops to save lives.

But, why are there emergency flashing lights outside of Meredith’s door at the end of this week’s episode? Did Derek get hurt in the crossfire? OMG, Was he sacrificed? Hence, the how to save a life theme. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Let’s stick to what we do know: Webber likes to jam to ‘70s girl group Musique’s “In the Bush”...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Derek Is MIA

4/10/2015 9:10am EDT
'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap 'Crazy Love': Where In The World Is Derek
Shonda Rhimes swapped the ‘Thank God it’s Thursday’ tagline with ‘Throw Back Thursday’ by re-airing the very first Grey’s episode in primetime. Looking back on the pilot it’s wild to think Meredith and Derek got their roller coaster romance started with a one night stand. Fast forward 10 years later and they still keep the on call rooms steamy.

The “Crazy Love” episode starts with Mer and Der getting in some a.m. sex before he jets out to D.C. to hand in his resignation letter and government issued phone. Peace out, Obama. The Shepherds are at the height of their manic morning routine when...

'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap: 'When I Grow Up' - Amelia Is Near Ruin
“I have everything that I ever wanted,” Meredith brags to half sissy Maggie when finally realizing how blessed she is—being Shepherd’s wife and mom to two healthy kids. She’s complete! And only took 18 episodes to get her to embrace her wonderful life. I bet she’ll appreciate it even more after this hanky-worthy hour of Grey’s.

A grisly trauma involving police—the result of a botched bank robbery—interrupts the Grey/Sloan Hospital field trip of dreams for local eight and 10-year-olds. Webber tried to shield them from the impromptu show-and-tell session involving a cop nearly bleeding to de...

Five Things to Know About 'Grey’s Anatomy's' 'With or Without Yo
1. Derek kissed a girl and it wasn't Meredith, but she forgives him.

The “With or Without You” episode picks up the day after Derek returns home. He’s giving Meredith the play by play of how and why a woman picked up his phone. Said woman is Renee Collier, Derek’s research fellow.

Cue the flashbacks of the mentor and mentee—who bears a striking resemblance to Season One Meredith—bonding for 9 weeks over a research project to cure autism. When Derek-save-the-day-Shepherd has a breakthrough on Renee’s stalled project, he invites her to the lab to share the good news in person. Never mind t...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Has Derek's Cheating History Repeated Itself

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Derek Returns A Cheater
If you’re looking for a definite confirmation that Derek has a D.C. side chick—Meredith already paints a descriptive snapshot of her—we might just get it.

But not in “Don’t Dream It’s Over” because as much as you can see a dress is blue and black, some people will view it as brown and white. In other words, things are never what they seem to be, even when it looks like they are. Including a mystery woman playing secretary on Derek’s phone. Yet, to Meredith it’s abundantly clear: he’s cheating. Her theory: “when you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras. It means that the most obvious an...

Now that the Grey’s crew has yet another innovatively historic surgery behind them (Herman is happily on the mend, reports Arizona) it’s time to get back to our weekly dose of traumas at Grey Sloan Memorial.

Meredith’s Lucky Streak

Meredith kicks off the “I Feel the Earth Move” episode in the O.R. Alex calls her out for outpatient treatment on his patients. So not only is she using her own work to avoid visiting Derek, but she’s also stealing Alex’s patients. Mer changes the subject by asking him, “Is Jo stalking her?” Yes, she is because she got wind of her surgery streak. Meredith has n...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: ‘The Distance’- Amelia The Superhero
Grab your cape “Grey’s” watchers because Amelia Shepherd shows us what it takes to be a superhero. First you’ve got to stand with your legs apart and hands on hips. Then hype yourself up enough to believe you can conquer the impossible. It’s what she did in “The Distance” episode.

Super Amelia is five hours into the Herman surgery before coming to a standstill. Her Kryptonite seems to be indecision. She’s trapped between two major areas of the brain affecting speech, vision and her dream box. Realizing she’s painted herself into a corner, Amelia just stops.

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap 'Staring At The End'– Student Becomes Tea
“I don’t like questions without answers,” Herman (Geena Davis) declares in a voiceover kicking off “Grey’s Anatomy’s” thirteenth episode.

It’s fair to say ambiguity is Herman’s enemy especially when packaged as an inoperable tumor living in her head. But, unlike Arizona who is doggedly trying to find a life-saving cure to preserve her future, Herman’s more interested in creating a lasting legacy.

In doing so, she takes on every in vitro surgical procedure within the Tri-State area to teach Arizona. Except for Bailey’s patient. Given Herman’s limited life span she’s pretty selective about...

If you guessed Meredith’s (Ellen Pompeo) mysterious weekend was holed up in a hotel room for much needed alone time…DING, DING, DING!! Tell em’ what they’ve won Jonny.

Enjoyed that? Knew you would. Since we’re giving kudos, I’ll pat my own self on the back for a successful guesstimate. As predicted, Meredith was planning on going to D.C. but got cold feet. Instead of going home she spent three days in an airport hotel, which seemed like epic Mer-time. Come Monday, everyone was convinced she had “emergency sex” with Derek, however one person knew she was pretending.

'Grey's Anatomy' Preview Clip: 5 Theories On Meredith's Whereabouts

2/19/2015 3:00pm EST
Grey's Anatomy
Last time we saw Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) she was trolling the hospital looking for anyone—except “hoodlum” Jo—to pawn her kids off on. So she could go to D.C. and have “emergency sex” with Derek. Judging by “Grey’s Anatomy’s” preview clip below those plans changed somehow.

Maggie, who happily volunteered to babysit, gently tells Meredith she knows she wasn’t with Derek (Patrick Dempsey) because he called her several times asking for her whereabouts. Maggie makes it clear to Mer she’s in a no-judgment zone over the sexy lingerie she packed for the actual “he, she or they” she was fleei...

Happy New Year, “Grey’s” watchers. The TGIT withdrawal has finally been lifted and we’re right where we left off. Derek’s more gung ho than ever to go to D.C., even at the risk of breaking his post-it note marriage vows. No matter, Meredith chucks the symbol of their commitment—the framed post-it note—in the trash. Shattering it in several pieces. (BTW nice touch with the intro, ShondaLand.)

The overarching theme of “Where Do We Go From Here” is adjusting to trauma. But the first step is getting over the shock. Meredith is proactive; she interviews a nanny that will more or less take Derek...
