The Grey's Anatomy Spoilers We Know Of

by at . Comments
Shonda Rhimes Creates, ProducesIf Shonda Rhimes (right) had her way, there would be no Grey's Anatomy spoilers. The show's creator and executive producer is notoriously secretive about future plot lines, determined to build suspense and preserve the show's integrity. But we've picked up a few things since the Season 2 finale last May, and with Season 3 around the corner, here's a brief spoiler list... along with our take.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-- Sources say the premiere of Season Three will be called "Time Has Come Today," taking its name from a song by The Chambers Brothers. Shonda won't divulge how much time has passed in the Grey's Anatomy world between the Season Two finale and the September resumption, but she does state in her blog that Grey's "is odd in that an episode may air that is actually in real time only moments after the last episode ended." So who knows whether we will pick up where we left off, or sometime a little later.

-- Despite leaving the internship program following the tragic death of Denny Duquette (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Dr. Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl) remains a principal cast member in Season Three. Whether she reclaims her job after the impropriety that took place in the finale is another story. As for Morgan, he'll be coming back from the dead... in a new series created by Rhimes.

The Grey's Anatomy Spoilers We Know Of -- Sara Ramirez (left) who appeared near the end of Season 2 as sassy Dr. Callie Torres, has been promoted and is now a full-time cast member. The Mexican-American actress, who plays the love interest of Dr. George O'Malley (T.R. Knight) becomes the latest component of what many believe is TV's most diverse and talented cast.

-- As we've talked about several times, a legendary guest star will "Grace" our favorite Seattle Hospital this fall. Diahann Carroll, 72, the first African-American woman to ever star in a TV series, will join the cast, creator Rhimes confirms. As for what her role will be, theories range from an administrative counterpart to Dr. Webber (James Pickens, Jr.) to the mother of Dr. Burke (Isaiah Washington).

-- Another fan favorite guest star (one who isn't dead) will make his return. Folks clamoring for more "McSteamy" will apparently get their wish as Eric Dane, who guest starred as Dr. Mark Sloan in Season 2, will be recoming back to SGH. The charming, self-destructive doc, whose affair with Addison left the Shepherds' marriage in shambles, should provide us with greater insight into Derek's back story, and may influence the show's famous love triangle (or, what some are calling a quadrangle by this point).

-- Chris O'Donnell (Finn Dandridge) will return to the set of Grey's Anatomy in Season Three, although it is not clear for how many episodes. Last season, the star originally signed on for eight episodes, but various reports state he may have upped that total. It's also unclear if that count includes his first appearance, in which he got a whole 10 seconds of screen time.

That's all for now, but we'll pass along more if we come across any. Let us know via our forums if there's anything you've heard, and be sure to keep in touch on all the latest Grey's Anatomy news via our blog. Thanks!

Okay, so Ive missed the last episode of season 4. BUT! I do know that George tells Callie at the end about him and izzie. At this point, I am really mad with izzie. Even though I love her character to death, she was way out of line to be meassing with a married man, Callie did not deserve that and George MOST certaintly doesnt deserve Callie. I love her, she is one of my favorites. But, I'm glad that Cristina and Burke are over, I didnt like their relationship from the start. There was like, nothing there. Not like Mere and Der are, whenever I see Der and Mere together in a scene its like you can feel the chemistry and the attraction. Whether Der or Mere like to admit it, they are meant for one another. They can't be away from each other. But I really wish Addison didn't leave. I liked her character in the second and third season. Mostly in the third though, her and Alex would have been cute. BUT! what I REALLY want to see is Callie and Mcsteamy end up together. They are so alike. Both smart asses, both dominating. And she puts him in his place. I mean something has to happen on there with Mark to stay. Other wise his character wont last all season. So yeah, I defintily think these characters should end up together. Mere/Derek
Mark/Callie
George and NOBODY [he needs to grow up more]
Izzie/Alex
And Cristina, she needs to become a lesbian or something. Ha, kiddin. But Im glad her and Dr.Burke are done. It was just to sad to watch anymore with them. =/

Well, that was a good prediction, until you brought in where the fetus had died, that's heartless. better luck next time. Don't you think it would be so much better if the baby actually lived? Then it would be Addison who saved her ex-husbands girlfriend, and baby. I'm very anxious to see what really happens this season!

OMG i love greys anatomy in the fourth season i want mer and derek to stay together i think she should get pregnant and faint during rounds. then baily will look at her and then page addison who will see meredith pregnant and tell her and derek. derek will be shock but be happy. derek and meredith will spend time together and will be excited. BUt then meredith goes into a bleeding accident which leads to surgery where addison must work to save meredith under the pressure of saving her and the babys life. In the end the fetus had died inside and will not be able to live

Hahahahaha this is a few days after the season 3 finale and after reading Mary's comments i have to laugh. One, everything you said made no sense, you basically want every couple to move in together and "develop". You arent really offering any advice. And to everyone else, stop trying to make suggestions, S.R. obviously knows what shes doing and its not always about how you want it to end up.

ALEX & IZZIE are perfect for each other. they are so cute togther and even though i was supposed to like denny i didnt because he got in the way of them. ahh i want them back together so badly!!! izzie should just get over it

I believe in Meredith and Derek. I hope they will be together and stay together and maybe she will get pregnant??
It's their time now, they deserve each other ...

First off, to this Mary person: you're assuming that 1) anybody from the show takes time to read these mostly boring comments and 2) that anybody from the show would actually care what you think. I don't mean that in a bad way, but lets face it, the writers and everybody else knows what they want to happen and how and a little imput from you is not going to make one bit of difference in a show as big as GA. Again, this is all assuming anybody important actually saw this. I think we've all got better chances of winning the IL state lottery then that happening. On a much brighter note. McDreamy and Mer....I want them to get together in the end, but I don't want it to be anytime soon cause that would kill the show. Burke and Christina: only a matter of time before they're done. Can anybody see Christina with McSteamy? They're both cold and selfish...ok well I didn't REALLY think so either ;) Callie and George: Please...she's way to weird and just rude. Alex and Izzie: Need to get over it and get back together cause hello...so cute. Otherwise, the show is awesome love every aspect of it. Just when I think one character is my fav story line another does something that causes my jaw to drop. Keep it up, this better be on for a LONG time!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
