Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: Rose Lies!

by at . Comments

A certain shocking preview for Season Five set off what could best be called widespread panic this week. Hopefully the following reports from TV insiders will quell some of the madness going on among Grey's Anatomy fans.

First, from E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos ...

Liar, liar, pants on fire! My sources tell me that the promo above is just plain old pointless torture, because Rose (Lauren Stamile) is lying through her pretty white teeth when she tells Derek that she's having his baby.

Now, why is she lying, and could she get away with it? That remains to be seen, but I can tell you that "Thorn" is just about done causing trouble for Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey), because the two-hour season premiere (airing Sept. 25 on ABC at 9 p.m.) is apparently Lauren Stamile's final appearance with the show!

Then, from Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello ...

Q: I just saw the new promo for Grey's Anatomy in which Rose says she is carrying Derek's baby. WTF?
A: WTF is right. That little promo caused quote the little firestorm over at ABC yesterday. Not only did it incur the wrath of millions of Rose-weary Mer-Der fans, but it essentially branded one of the network's most valuable assets (i.e. Shonda Rhimes) a big ol' liar. You see, in her ABC podcast that followed the show's finale last May, Rhimes assured fans that Grey's Anatomy would not be employing any soap operatic stunts to pull Derek and Meredith apart this season - and she specifically ruled out knocking up Rose. But someone apparently forgot to pass that bit of information on to the folks cutting together that incendiary clip. As a result, Rhimes has been forced to do the unthinkable: Issue an exclusive statement to me that basically denies the very plot twist that ABC shamelessly tried to dangle before us. "I would not deceive our fans," Rhimes tells me, "especially those loyal enough to listen to our podcast." Long story short: The only thing Rose will be carrying in the season premiere is a third wheel.
Take the Stairs

It appears as though September 25 is the end of the line for Rose. Please, try to contain your devastaion and sadness over this Grey's Anatomy news.

Oh my freaking god. Thank goodness Rose is leaving. Merder4ever!!! Boo Rose, you're just a big fat freakin liar that deserves to get dumped! Never come back! EVer!


I want MerDer to get back together (pretty couple).


Rose is lying cause my man would not get her pregnant!!!


LOLOLOL hahaha... Thats funny...


I really wish they wouldnt do these promos with homley ass rose saying that she is have waited so long for mer and der to be together and happy,we dont need any wrenches thrown into the mix... Let's really hope that these were all dreams that meredith was having..


Okay, i never really liked rose, but i just didnt like her with Derek. She wasn't that bad. But after this...I dont know. Why would she lie like that? She seemed so...not like that. :( Oh well, screw her. MERDER RULES.


I missed the promo and I'm glad because that would have been unbearable to watch. I'm hopeful that Shonda will stick to her word and keep MerDer together finally. I hope it will lead to a mc wedding and a mcbaby.


Thank you, thank you, thank you! You just saved me from sending a nasty comment to Shonda... I couldn't bear the thought of the preview being true. I'm sure whoever doesn't hear the spoiler is freaking out right now. I sure was!
