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?

hey does anyone know if kim raver is going to be back next season?


I would kick my family out if I get married and I own the house. However I don't think I would need to kick my family out, because they would leave on their own without me having to ask.LOL Actually I would move out and find a place for me and my husband. Just saying LOL


I know what you mean I thought Alex and Lexie would never come back to live with Meredith. Especially Lexie, I mean she has her father's house why doesn't she go to live there after she broke up with Mark. The worse part is that they came back without asking if it was okay. I mean come on.


The "game changer" comment is not getting me excited. S6 is causing GA to hit a plateau right now. The episode quality is too inconsistant (some brillant episodes,some boring,some flat out bad) so I'm not so excited for the finale compared to S5 which was one of the best finales ever! Referring to the Alex/Lexie living situation: For the time being I think they should stay because Derek is the new chief of surgery and busy and Mer feels like they are her family and I don't think you should even consider kicking family out but I understand why people want Alex/Lexie to move out. I saw 3 of the 4 sneak peeks and I am looking forward to this episode and hopefully some closure with Izzie (divorce was mentioned which depresses me but what can we do at this point?)


@ana114, I was just sayin' since I don't go and talk to my brother while he's in the shower and I kinda hate that whem my mom does it with me... Plus, you can clearly see Derek's not happy, LOL. I like him jealous :-P He should be more used to it (four sisters...can't imagine that one) but I'm trying to find an excuse to get to the house plans.


I think Der's suspicious cos he's feeling somethings up and Mer's needing to talk to friends and not him. But Der included a bit of a bombshell with the baby talk, so what else does he expect? He should know Mer panics, but he has always got what he wanted from her. She went out with him when she shouldn't have, and did marry him eventually


Am I the only one to think about this whole story of Jackson being the chief and Ellis' son ? I mean, as a part of this "Game Changer"?
We got to see Jackson's grandfather, who is a famous doctor, who's known Ellis and Richard. Why would we have to know about Jackson's life so soon (we barely know the guy) if it weren't to place him in some sort of family pattern, if there wasn't something else to know ? Am I clear here.
Anyway, I don't know if it's possible, it also seems to big considering that Meredith already got to discover the existence of two half sisters. But there is something here to dig.


@anuflas I don't find it strange that Meredith walks in and talks to Alex while he is taking a shower, because I do it with my brother all the time. I do think it bother Derek and I don't know why because he has sisters I bet the walking in while he was taking a shower all the time and seat on the bathroom and stuff.


Totally agree that Alex's and Lexie's living arrangements need to change asap. They don't need Mer's as a bolt hole anymore. I know that previously its been mentioned by a few characters how difficult accomodation is to come by in Seattle. I know Mer regards them as family. But Lexie still living with a married sister is getting stupid. Alex should make a fresh start cos he is gonna be a single man again soon


I'm beginning to think maybe it's Mer that was fostered whilst her mom was roaming the world being an all powerful surgeon. I guess we'll see in episode whether Aaron says that's what happened to Alex.

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)

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.
