Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: Derek in the Doghouse

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy fans could never forget about MerDer, but Ellen Pompeo's maternity leave the first half of this season has relegated the show's core couple to the back burner.

What's up next for Mer and Der when Grey's Anatomy returns in just over a week? Not good things. Don't be alarmed, they're together for good. But D stands for doghouse.

That's because he learns Rule #1 of marriage the hard way when he lets slip something Mer told him confidence. At work. To people Mer also knows. Women don't like that.

But here's where it gets intriguing: The secret's impact "will be much more wide-ranging at Seattle Grace-Mercy West" than just a case of marital annoyance, reports say.

What do you think the big secret is?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

[narrating] The human life is made up of choices. Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. And then there are the choices that matter. Love or hate. To be a hero or to be a coward. To fight or to give in. To live. Or die. Live or die. That's the important choice. And it's not always in our hands.
