Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: The Mer-Der Reunion

by 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?

Have been a newcomer for a few months because I do not like hospitals but, after getting and watching four seaxons,fell in love with MerDer.They are such a perfect match.Adorable,cute, cuddly and sexy.Love their humor and their looks with one another.Want to continue watching but if you add Clooney, no way.Then again,I will burn him out.He is not close to goodlooking,does not have class or style.I turn him off a lot. You can do better than him.

george clooney is not going to be in greys!! read correctly people.."Ausiello: Get this: Grey's Anatomy is out to get George Clooney! Well, a George Clooney type, at least, to appear in two episodes." a george clooney TYPE and MERDER FOREVER. THE END.

Der/Mer should be together. A little time apart would do them good, and mer would realise her love for him so him being with the nurse would a least put her mind in prospective. George clooney will definetely turn the heat up in a couple episodes.

George Clooney!! Now that's interesting!!!! I'm with the ones that said they like McDreamy and McSteamy better. Anyway, I'm glad that Gizzy is done. I love Izzy and George as best friends or like brother and sister, and what's wrong with Lexie and George? They look like they would be cute together. What's wrong with Izzy landing McDreamy? She has it way over Meredith. As for Mer/Der, I'm not a fan of those two at all. I think they are better apart, and I would be very disappointed if Derek didn't get someone that is right up on his level. Some people write in that he's a jerk or McAss instead of McDreamy, but I think he's been nothing but a McDreamy where Meredith is concerned. Meredith is the one that keeps pushing him away. I just can't see how they are going to change Meredith and make her ready for a committment in such a short time. Meredith is miles away from him. Derek is already there, career, what he wants. He was married and was already settle. What should have happened was Derek and Addison working it out, as flawed as they were. Meredith still needs time. He's a successful surgeon and Meredith is bearly getting started. Plus I think she's a lot better when she is without him. Not so immature. It's like little girl trying to please her daddy. There's been too much unanswered business between those two, and as talented as I think the writers are, they need to sit with each other and read what they are writing about those two because they are not consistant with them. For example in one of the episodes in Season II, they have Derek talking to Addison ( a real adult conversation by the way), and he says to her that he was different towards her. He was absent and part of the reason for their problems. He then aplogizes to her and said that he would work on it. Then the next few episodes, you see him mushing around Meredith and not really trying with Addison, and then the end of that Season, doing the McNasty with Meredith in one of the examining rooms. I know this is long and winded, but that's what I mean when I say that the writers need to compare notes. I still want to say though, that the writers are wonderful. Keep it up. I'll still watch even though I really hope that Mer/Der will end. If it isn't working all these seasons, give it up.

i stopped watching grey's coz i thought shonda is driving me crazy with the whole love-hate relationship of merder. but i might actually start watching again if they put merder back for GOOD. coz the whole breakup-gettogether is getting old.

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.
