Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: What's Next For MerDer

by at . Comments

The return of Grey's Anatomy is still weeks off, but TV Guide sleuth Michael Ausiello is already getting the scoop on what we can expect when our favorite show ends its long, long writers' strike-induced absence on Thursday, April 24.

MerDer Communication

There's nothing Earth-shattering here, but we've hidden these new Grey's Anatomy spoilers after the jump for the benefit of those who wish to be kept in the dark.

If you want some hints on the future of Mer-Der and the character that was supposed to be played by Josh Jackson, follow the jump and read on!

Question: I was really looking forward to Joshua Jackson being Cristina Yang's new love interest on Grey's Anatomy, so the scheduling conflicts suck! Any updates on who will be cast in the role instead?

Ausiello: I'm hearing that Shonda Rhimes has handed the plum part to a relative newcomer by the name of No One. Get it? She handed the role to No One. [Hold for laughter and/or crickets] Seriously, my Grey's Anatomy spies tell me that Rhimes has decided to put the character on hold indefinitely. Bummer.

Question: I need some Grey's Anatomy scoop. Any hope for us Mer-Der fans?

Ausiello: Not in the first episode back, which flashes forward a few months and, per one source, picks up at the end of Derek and Rose's latest date. In that same episode, I'm hearing about a contest to determine who Seattle Grace's best doc is.

MerDer belong together. the've got too much chemistry for them not to end up together. No MerDer, no grey's. Its the only reason i watch, nothing else.I think George and Izzie are much more better off as friends,but whatever the only people i care about is Derick and Meredith ending up together.Who the hell is Rose? pls get her off, she's spoiling the MerDer chemistry.

Derek tells Rose he can continue going out with her because he realizes Meredith is the lover of his life and he wants to be with her.He tells Meredith the same and goes to spend christmas holidays at home with his family " the people who really loves him". Meredith is very sad , she was going to spend Crhistmas Eve at home with her family ( izzie, Alex, Christina...) And when sher arrives home she tells her friends that she apologizes, that they are her family but Derek is the love of her life and she wants to be with him. Then her friends give her a Christmas present. a ticket plane to Dereks house, that was bought by all her friends. She runs to the airport , takes a plane and in the morning arrives to DEreks mothers house . Derek is not at home , apperars his mother than inmediatily realizes that the person who is at the front door is the girl that his son really loves. Both of those women start talking each other at the library they like each other inmeaditly. Meredith tells her she loves his son and like very much dereks mother . They continue talking for a long time. Its time to have lunch and suddenly a lot of noise at the front door. Its Derek appearing with his sisters and nephews ¡¡¡¡. His mother call him , she leave Mer DEr alone ,he is very surprise , they start kiss each other ......, love forever..... .

Hey guys love the comments but i just want to say some things.Shonda LOVES triangles and she will get them any way she knows how.First remember Addison-Derek-Meredith before finn came into the picture it was a triangle them season 3 Callie-George-Izzie after their drunken sex epi 19 I did not like izzie then she was selfish and she hurt Callie a lot and made George the cheating type and she had it for Callie since day one and was real bitch to her.Then again when they tried to have sex in season 4 it went terribly wrong and they broke up.Izzie and George are better of as friends not lovers she was ike his sister and them turned into the other women his mistress and she was comparing herself to Mere i mean come on that is not the same thing people Izzie knew that George was married and she still slept with him but Mere did not know that Derek was married at the time.
As for Rose i like her and she is exactly what Mer-Der needs at the moment she is catalyst for bringing them together and this thing that they had been doing is not healthy and they need a break from each other but it is going to be similar to finn he was in 9 episodes and so is she and i think she is funny and she can stand up for herself so please try not to wish that she will be dead as I think Shonda is going to do something really amazing to get our favourite couple together dont doubt it she got real new perspective on them over the writers strike break and she is the writer she does what she thinks nessesary to keep show interesting even by nearly killing main characters and breaking them up common we all know that the will be a wedding and a real one i add that but we just have to wait to it we still gor 3 seasons and i dont want Greys to end.As i was saying about triangles now its Meredith-Rose-Derek follow the pattern so please give Shonda a break she is incredible writer and she made show a success and totally amazing
ALL IN DUE TIME PEOPLE ALL IN DUE TIME!!!!

I want Gizzie back..I believe they are the best couple..They are the ones that kept me hooked on the show.

All I can say is thank goodness that the love interest is not Joshua Jackson... I mean come on. First, of all with the two side by side, you can't really think there could be any real or acted chemistry there. Plus, I really can't see pacey as a hard as nails doctor that would be required by christina. Come on.... Get some one good,.

I am so missing the real "drama" this last season.
There has to be more drama. I think that this time Mer has to save Der in a certain way, like he saved her when she nearly drowned. Maybe the shock of something really bad happening to Der and the possibility of losing him forever is what Mer needs to be able to totally commit.
It's is also not only Mer's fault that the relationship is still "hanging". Der started having doubts. First when he was told he could not be chief because of his relationship with Mer. He also had doubts because he could not understand why Mer did't swim when she nearly drowned. I think that he was disappointed she did't fight to life, so actually did't fight for him. She never told him what happened when she had her nearly-dead experience and that the reason she came back was that she did not wanted just a moment with Der passing by but a lifetime.
So I think Mer has to show in a way she will fight for him and she will save him in a way.........

George and Izzie are the best, I miss them, they need to be together

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)

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.
