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

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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."
