Spoiler #2: In the season 9 finale, Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.) was electrocuted when the power came back on in the wake of the storm. He was unconscious in the flooded basement of the hospital.
The good news - Richard is alive! Series creator Shonda Rhimes accidentally tweeted the major spoiler in August, according to Zap2It.com. The photo she tweeted was from a table reading of the 200th episode, and Pickens was spotted sitting with fellow cast members. Realizing her mistake, Rhimes tweeted "Crap!" and later deleted both posts. Oops!
Pickens and his co-stars Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Chandra Wilson, Justin Chambers and the now departing Sandra Oh all renewed their contracts for two more seasons after season 8, so it was really no stretch that Richard would survive getting electrocuted.
