More Grey's Anatomy Season Premiere Spoilers (Sort of)

at . Comments

Rumors and speculation surrounding the September 25 Season Five premiere of Grey's Anatomy have reached new heights. Now Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly is about to make things even worse for us ...

Q: Can you tell me if Derek gets hurt in the Grey's Anatomy season premiere?

A: Judging by that infamous promo, ABC certainly wants you to think that, right? Well, allow me to clear things up for you - by way of a multiple-choice quiz! I can confirm that two of the following take place in the season premiere - one for real and the other in Meredith's imagination (the other two are outright foilers):

  1. Rose stabs Derek.
  2. Derek suffers a heart attack and is visited by the ghost of Denny.
  3. Dr. Burke returns to Seattle Grace and shoots Derek in the face before turning the gun on himself.
  4. In a flashback, we learn that Derek got into a car accident shortly after leaving Meredith in the candle field.

Think you've got it figured out? Well, scroll down to the comments section and answer the following questions: Which incident occurs for real? Which one does Mer imagine? And which two are thrown in just for kicks?

Q: Please tell me Cristina Yang's new love interest on Grey's Anatomy (a.k.a. Kevin McKidd) is here to stay!

A: His first episode hasn't even aired yet - how do you know the two of them are any good together? Have you seen a rough cut of the premiere or something? If so, how 'bout you burn me a copy on the DL? In return, I'll share with you some good news: Although McKidd's status is technically still recurring, I'll be shocked if he isn't made a full-time regular by the end of the season. Shonda Rhimes is apparently doing cartwheels over his work thus far. Literally doing cartwheels. My Grey's Anatomy mole saw her doing one in the parking lot last Thursday.

Q: Anything else on Grey's Anatomy?

A: Don't be surprised if the season premiere leaves you a little, um, Lost. No, the Chief isn't going to turn the donkey wheel in the basement and make Seattle Grace disappear. Rather, a flash forwardish sequence will show us what two characters might be up to several years in the future.

Beautiful site!


Perfect work!




Wow, well. I totally think that when Derek goes to talk to Rose, she will go all mental on him and, in reality, stab him... and while Meredith is waiting endlessly for him to come back -- after all, he practically begged her joyfully to 'stay here, don't move, wait for me'-- that's when her imagination starts to go a little wild. Maybe she waits for him in his trailer and falls asleep and in her dream, the worst-case scenario is that maybe while she was waiting in the candle field for him, he got into a car accident. In reality, the reason he's delayed is because he was stabbed by psycho-Rose. I bet she said she was having his baby in the premiere teaser as part of whatever mental breakdown, hallucinatory condition she suddenly lapses into. I mean, the girl went on 5 dates with McDreamy before confessing her love for him to his friends. Derek and Meredith, as we're led to assume, were together for months before Addison came to Seattle-Grace... and they spent pretty much all their free time together, and they made time for each other in the hospital for Merder stuff... Anyways, that's genuine basis for falling in love... Rose was just obsessive and psychotic. Man, I really hated her character... from start to finish. I'm so glad she'll be gone for good after the premiere.


It would be so DH if Derek got into a car accident. And he would propably lose his memory before he could tell Rose about Mer. So typical. It would definitely be interesting, if Rose stabbed him. But also very stupid. Burke coming to shoot Derek and himself would be the best thing, for Christina and stuff like that. Accept that he doesn't have a reason to. Heart attack would be totally unlikely, but if Rose stabbed HERSELF after Derek told her about Mer, it would be more STUPID ! ARGH, what am I thinking? It's got to be the car accident dream, and REALLY Rose stabbing him.


omg i figured something amazing out! okay, in the wrap up of the 4th season the cheif was with his wife making out and you can bet it didnt stop at that so how can he all ready be back at the hospital working on the near dead derek? its so a dream


i don't think rose will stab him he's way to young for a heart attack burke? come on! they spent even time cleaning that up the car wreck is the one scene they actually shot, but im betting its a bad bad bad dream, i hope


So, we know the car accident isn't going to happen according to Shonda. Burke was FIRED. There's a very unlikely chance that he'll come back to shoot Derek, who was his friend. Like everyone else said, he's a health nut, so how can he have a heart attack and see Denny? Mer drowned, and saw Denny. Then Derek? Too unrealistic. Rose stabbing him is what I think will happen. I agree with the person who said stab him in the back, like with the pregnancy lie, or like someone else said, how rose could be absentminded and hand Derek a scapel, "stabbing" his hand or something. Honestly, I don't think it's going to be a major thing. I think they just want to get more viewers by showing the sneak peak. Well, that's what I think.


My guess is that Rose and Derek will be working together on a case, and Rose will accidentally stab him with the scalpel or another surgical tool. It's still a stabbing, but it's not the sort of stabbing you'd think of when you read "Rose stabs Derek."


I think that the Derek gets in a wreck with the limo people that are in the pictures on from the first episode. He could have a heart attack because of accident but we know he doesn't die because that would KILL the show. This is probably when Denny comes back, maybe into meredith's mind or into Derek while he's unconscious or something. Denny seems to give the sound advice and good life lesson stuff so maybe Derek is talking with him while he's under.
Rose was placed onto the scene as the stable normal girl, the healthy girl. Either it's a dream that she's telling Derek she's pregnant or it's true but I don't think she would ever intentionally stab Derek.
The Burke thing is crap unless somehow they managed to keep it completely Hush hush about Burke being back which I don't think would be possible and I don't think that Burke would even come back. Washington wasn't pleased with being fired.
Either way this is going to be an awesome season and I am counting down the hours until this show is on.

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.
