Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: A Series in Transition

at . Comments

Just two months remain until the Season 6 premiere of Grey's Anatomy, and its creator Shonda Rhimes is already working on a contingency plan in case Ellen Pompeo's pregnancy does not allow the show's title character to return to the set right away.

Or at all.

Pompeo's situation, along with what happened last season with T.R. Knight, have the Grey's Anatomy show-runner wondering how she's going to keep the series intact this year.

One thing she is talking about: "stand-alone" episodes.

Could the show go on without the woman who puts the Grey in Grey's Anatomy? What about the series' leading man, Patrick Dempsey? With contracts up at the end of this season, all possible scenarios are on the table and nothing taken for granted.

What other changes are in store when the show returns for its new season? Follow the link to read more about what Shonda Rhimes calls a "transitional" Grey's Anatomy Season 6 ...

Still the Bride-to-Be?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
