Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: Derek in the Doghouse

by 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?

Derek is an idiot for spilling secrets that Meredith told him in private.

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."

Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.

Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
