Hi, this Natalie. If I had to narrow down when I became addicted to pop culture and TV, hands down it would be when I tuned into dun-a-nun-a-nunt-na-na Beverly Hills 90210. I became obsessed with all things 90210 and carried that addiction over to other dramas and sitcoms. Parlaying my love of writing and TV watching with a blogging gig at MTV and entertainment and pop culture writer for Regal Magazine. You can follow me @forevergoode

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 11 Finale

May 15th, 2015 9:36am EDT
5 Things To Know About 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 11 Finale
I suppose the most shocking thing about this season was Derek’s death. And will forever be marked as the season Derek Shepherd kicked the bucket. Which is why there were no shocking explosions, earthquakes or shootings in the season finale episode “You’re My Home.” Instead, we got an hour mostly focused on the case of the week and Grey-Sloan couples making up and breaking up. Here are five things you need to know about “Grey’s Anatomy’s” season 11 finale.

1. Grey-Sloan Docs Pull Off the Impossible (…Yes, Again!)

Picking up from where we left off, April is still standing atop a flatbed tru...

These 'Grey's Anatomy' Romances Never Had A Chance

The 7 Most Doomed Romances On 'Grey's Anatomy'
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 Julie 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-i...

'Grey's Anatomy' Sets Up Finale: 10 Shocking Moments From 'Time Stop'

May 8th, 2015 9:51am EDT
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.

Watch Meredith Share Derek's Death News In This 'Grey's Anatomy'
Sorry, Grey’s watchers. As much as we want to will last week’s episode into a dream sequence, tonight’s two-hour special hints at Derek’s death sticking.

In a preview clip of “She’s Leaving Home” episode, the Grey Sloan docs—Owen, Maggie, Alex, Callie and Richard—are gathered in the staff lounge. Obviously in the calm before the tear-induced storm stage, as Callie and Alex rib over coffee and manners, (A lesson you’re never too old to learn.) Richard and Owen toss out assignments.

Unbeknownst to them a somber-looking Meredith quietly enters the room and whispers, “Derek is dead.”

'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': What Are The Flashing Lights Outside Of Meredith’s Door?

April 17th, 2015 9:34am EDT
'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

April 10th, 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...
