Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: The Mer-Der Reunion

at . Comments

The return of Grey's Anatomy is a little more than a month away and the Grey's Anatomy spoilers are starting to surface regarding its new episodes.

Don't get your hopes up - there's nothing Earth-shattering here.

But TV Guide's Michael Ausiello has the latest on what we can expect for Meredith and Derek, as well as some interesting casting notes (and speculation).

MerDer Trouble?
Love, Addiction

Be forewarned if you want to be in the dark and totally surprised on Thursday, April 24. Follow the jump if you want to learn a little bit more about Meredith and Derek and more from the world of Grey's Anatomy spoilers ...

Question: Now that we know Meredith and Derek will be getting back together on Grey's Anatomy, any idea on how it will happen, and why the fans have to endure five more episodes of Rose, a.k.a. Nurse Plot Device?

Ausiello: I imagine the reason you have to endure Nurse Plot Device Rose for five more episodes is because 1. the show already agreed to pay Lauren Stamile for those episodes, and 2. Nurse Plot Device Rose is probably one of the catalysts bringing Mer-Der back together. In related news, new details are emerging about the first episode back on April 24 and they vary slightly from what I reported last week. I'm told that roughly six weeks will have passed, not "several months." And the first scene will most likely take place at Seattle Grace, not at the end of Derek and Rose's latest date. Damn Grey's Anatomy script revisions!

Question: Grey's Anatomy scoop â€" please, sir, may I have some more?

Ausiello: Get this: Grey's Anatomy is out to get George Clooney! Well, a George Clooney type, at least, to appear in two episodes. The show also is on the hunt for an actress to play the hunk's wife, who, though younger, is no Sarah Larson; she's more of an everywoman housewife. I'm thinking American Dreams alum Rachel Boston? So what if she was already on the show â€" bring her back! You got a better idea?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

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."
