Derek-Richard Tensions to Continue on Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

Looks like the tensions between Derek and Richard on Grey's Anatomy, which have escalated weekly since the Season 6 premiere, aren't going away anytime soon.

In next week's Chandra Wilson-directed episode, tensions between the former chief and the current chief continue to boil when a specialized surgery is required.

The latter decides Owen is better suited for it than Richard.

That doesn't sit well with Dr. Webber, who was basically ousted when Derek revealed his alcohol abuse to the board, and forced to swallow a whole lot of pride.

Things had been frosty between them long before that, too. Richard's handling of the merger and his own role as Chief caused major friction between the pair.

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."

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.
