Shonda Rhimes Promises Grey's Anatomy "Game Changer"

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes promises a major, life-altering season finale this May, which makes it no different than any other May for this master of online hype, but still, Rhimes' guest column in Entertainment Weekly is definitely worth a read.

Here's what she has to say about THE. GAME. CHANGER ...

"What is coming up on Grey's Anatomy is pretty intense."

"It’s the kind of finale that changes everything. I know people like to say that, wave the phrase 'game-changer' around like a red flag in front of a bull. But dude, this year?"


The Chief's Wife

"Of course, I’m not gonna tell you anything about it. Because I’m scared to. Instead, let me tell about a few things that are going to lead up to it ... "

  • Teddy is going to find herself fighting for her job.
  • Sloan Sloan comes back to have Mark’s grandchild.
  • Derek and Meredith are going to have a very serious conversation that may or may not involve the word “baby.”
  • You’re going to see what happens when two Karevs get in the same room together.
  • Callie and Arizona and Mark are going to do something dirty with pound cake.
  • NOTE: They were going to do something dirty with mini-muffins, but Broadcast Standards and Practices said no.
  • A 700-pound man comes to Seattle Grace and our residents have a hard time remembering their sensitivity training.
  • Mer is gonna go a little badass and protective on Owen when it comes to Cristina.
  • Derek is going to get even dreamier (okay, I only said that so Patrick Dempsey will come to my office and say, “Please stop torturing me” And while he’s in my office, he’ll have to then say, “Please stop touching my hair or I am calling security.”)

Umm, did she say "baby" and Derek and Meredith in the same sentence? Whoa! What do you make of that and the rest of these Grey's Anatomy spoilers?

So, Sloan Sloan is comming back .Wonder if Mark will get to keep the baby?Probly not. I just hate that she just used Mark for money and then left without even telling him goodbye. I just don't like Sloan Sloan very much and I glad I'm not the only one that does. Though I'm kinnda glad that we finaly get to meet someone from Alex's family maybe we can find out what happend to Alex that made him who he is today. And the Alex/Lexie moving in thing? Seriously they should go and live in the trailer that Derek gave Alex and Izzie to live in. I know it might be hard on Alex to go back and live there again but seriously get over it already Izzie is gone and probly not comming back so might as well go and live there so then everybody can be happy. Also, I hope MerDer have a baby.If you look back on the interviews I think that when Ellen's pregnacy had just came out that Patrick wanted them to write in the pregnacy on the show. They should have done it I think it would have made the show a little more interesting to have a baby in the mix.


Ok... when it says "Meredith and Derek are going to have a serious conversation that may or may not involve the word baby" that's pretty much telling us that the conversation will involve babies somehow. Whether it's that theyre expecting a baby or are simply just considering trying to conceive, nobody knows. And how could Mark's storyline move along if his long-lost daughter didnt return to have her baby? Annoying as Sloan is, she is still his daughter and therefore it makes perfect sense that she will return. I wish that Izzie wasn't leaving. Damn you, Katherine Heigl, :( But Alex hopefully can move on, and I can't believe that Izzie just will no longer be in the show at all! What a crappy exit!!


Ugh great...not more Sloan Sloan! It feels like she brought the show down once she arrived. Excited for the rest of the "spoilers" though.


Well first off, I am saddened that they are going to bring back Sloan Sloan. I thought we were through with her. It's torture for her to come back. That storyline was very annoying. Watching Mark go from the hospital hottie to the needy daddy was horrible. Where could MerDer possibility go at this point? Baby drama seems like it's the natural progression of things. No shocker there. Speaking of baby drama, Callie and Arizona, baby drama seems a bit more interesting but not by too much. If they're going to be lesbians they might as well suffer lesbian bed death and start finding other women to hook up with within their little circle. Alex is suddenly becoming interesting again, it's about time he got a storyline that didn't evolve around Izzie. Good riddance to Izzie anyway. I was sick of her popping in and out. Alex and Lexie's relationship is completely dysfunctional. Why can't Avery get a girlfriend?? Bring back Burke!


At what stage in Mer's marriage should Alexie be shown the door? Alex is nearly a fourth year resident, I can see him still hanging on til he's finished his residency. But Lex is a second year, but she'd move out again if a serious boyfriend appeared (hope this happens soon). But will they move out when the baby is born?


@OhNoes There you go the fact that they didn't show where Alex and Lexie ask Meredith to move back in, shows that it didn't happen. If is not shown on screen it didn't happen unless on of the characters mentions it. So far no one has mentions or talked about Lexie and Alex asking Meredith to move back in. Just because Meredith doesn't mind that they live there doesn't mean that Alex and Lexie should be living there.


got one question is calzona going to adopt that baby and that vido about the pound cake was funny


@ana114 Just because we didn't see Lexie & Alex asking Mer if they can move back in, it does not at all mean that they didn't. they cant show us every single detail on screen. It seems like Meredith has no problem having them stay. She's always been very generous


@chris Thanks so much for posting the link! The 5th sneak peek is hilarious :) I love how Alex and Meredith interact. Cute.
I wish there was a sneak peek of Teddy and Mark...I'm really interested to see where that relationship goes.


Boundaries. That's all I'm saying. There has to be some boundaries.

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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
