Guest Star News: Lauren Stamile, Josh Jackson

by at . Comments

Kristin Veitch of E! Online reports that nurse Rose (Lauren Stamile) and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) are definitely heading in a romantic direction in upcoming episodes. Rumor has it that Rose/Lauren is sticking around until the last episode before the strike â€" Episode 11 â€" and she'll be an increasingly bigger part of the plot, as Derek even calls on Rose to help save a surgery.

For those of you rooting for Meredith and Derek, the good news is that this new "McThorny" romance with Lauren Stamile's character becomes a thorn in Mer's side â€" she may just realize how very badly she wants a McDreamy ending. The bad news? According to sources, she might realize that a little too late.

Lauren Stamile: A guest star and thorn in the side of Meredith Grey.

In other guest star news, the Writers Guild of America strike is apparently going to nix Joshua Jackson's appearance on Grey's Anatomy. Producers are hoping they can figure out another slot for the former Dawson's Creek star after the strike is put to rest, but that's contingent on his schedule. Stay tuned.

You took the words right out of my mouth Nicole.
Although, I do wish they could have their troubles while they were still together, their chemistry between each other is too great to keep apart.

it's becoming annoying, the show must grow up and make the relation ship between Meredith and Derek work. The new love Rose make no sense !!! Now it will be a soap and i think many fans are going to stop watching GA..

Big bummer about Joshua Jackson - I was really looking forward to him coming on board. And was hoping he'd sick around. I love him in everything he's done. Hopefully it works out for him still to guest star. I guess I think Rose is going to be a thorn, but that's the way of TV. There has to be challanges. Super couples ALWAYS break up through the course of episodes and then ALWAYS get back together. Why throw a fit when in the end (maybe later then sooner), Mer and Der will be together.

Hmm... just one word UN-BE-LI-VA-BLE! it seems Shonda is really underestimating fans.

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
