Will New Grey's Anatomy Guest Star Spell More Trouble For Derek & Meredith?

by at . Comments

Perhaps it's appropriate that as Addison - once the most hated TV wife in America - mulls her departure from Seattle Grace, a new Grey's Anatomy guest star may spell trouble for Meredith and Derek.

Chyler LeighAccording to E! Online's Kristin Veitch, sources close to Grey's Anatomy report that Chyler Leigh â€" the former Reunion star who plays the woman in the bar we saw in the previews for this week - has just been offered a role in a multiple-episode arc for next season.

Fans no doubt hope that her storyline has something to do with Cristina or Burke or Dr. Bailey or Callie or Izzie or... pretty much anyone but Derek Shepherd.

But if the first few seasons of Grey's Anatomy are any indication, we wouldn't count on it. Even if they belong together, the producers seem to devise new ways to drive Mer and Der apart.

Is this a repeat of the season one finale between Derek and Mer? Probably. I mean geez. How much more COULD they screw up Meredith? I suppose the could get raped and shot and then everyone could stop being friends with her.

Could it be possible that it is someone from New York that Derek and Mark both know. I read some where that someone wants more than just medical help from Mark. Just seeing her talk to Derek has her already being called the barslut/barwhore before we even know who she is. But for the true MerDer fans that is all it takes. It still makes me nerves for Meredith to be anywhere near Mark. It may also be a stretch that it's one of Derek's sisters he has three we hav'nt seen yet. It's hard to believe the season finale is almost here where did the season go so fast.

All I have to say is if Derek starts something with this new girl then I'm done watching greys it keeps me upset all the time. My husband keeps telling me it is just a show. But I can not take this any more. All the back and forth. Derek said he loved her forever. What has happen to that. I know that Mc Vet said he would hurt her again. If he is right I done with this BS. People do not break up and get back and break up like they have. They learn they are just not good for each other and go their seperate ways. But lately Dereck is self absorbed and is becoming a jerk. What is up Sonia? Mer deserses to be happy for more than a week at a time.

and i was also thinking that the girl that collpases could be adelle..cause she always carries a purse and that person had a purse..but im just guessing...

Avatar

i think the girl in the bar is Lexi...Molly's sister..and Mer's step sister..cause she could be in town for Susan's funeral :(

Avatar

Yeah, it's true, with Grey's best case scenario never happens
Hopoefully she is not Lexie, Mer's stepsister?, because she is pretty and all, but she don't look like Mer, or Tatcher, or Susan or Molly!
Please, let this girl not to be Lexie!!
I'm gonna trying not to hate her!, really, but I don't want Der to become McCheater
BTW, I think she looks cuter in the promo, maybe is her hair do that makes her looks different

there better be hope. hopefully there's something medically wrong w/ her, derek tells her he's taken and she sees mark and goes after him. but that would be best case scenario and lets face it, with this show, do we ever get the best case scenario?

Avatar

Thank you Melissa. I was on the verge of tears (embarrasingly) until i read your comment. There is hope.

we shouldn't jump to anything.(sometimes those previews can be exaggerate things or they can be one scene placed with other. Kind of like when they were showing previews for the addison spin-off and they showed addison saying that she wanted a baby and then they cut to Derek's reaction? As if Derek would really care if addison wanted a baby) She could be a love interest for Mark Solan. He will after all be single next year and he needs someone to pay attention to him right now. But if she is here for Derek he'll most likely reject her but he'll be flattered that he was hit on by someone;it'll give him an ego boost and hopefully a reality check.(have any of you guys notice thoe that the woemn who do hit on Derek are young? Is he having a mid-life criss)? Let's just see what happens this thrusday.

Why can't the writers just leave Meredith and Derek alone for at least one episode and let them chill? It seems like every time they try to recover from some dent in their relationship they don't even get half way until they get hit even harder making that dent an everlasting hole in their relationship - they're the most perfect-doomed couple.
