Shonda Rhimes Teases Grey's Anatomy Season-Ender & More

at . Comments

She puts the Grey in Grey's Anatomy, but will we see a major Meredith story line anytime soon? Creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes acknowledges that new mom Ellen Pompeo’s storyline load was lightened this season so she could focus on motherhood.

That said, Fancast reports that over the next couple of episodes, Meredith will focus on not so much being a doctor as a healer, so to speak, as Dr. Grey is called upon to be an especially protective friend for several members of her Seattle Grace clique.

Who do you think that is?

As for the upcoming Season Six finale, Shonda Tweeted that May’s big ending will serve up “a serious game-changer for every single character.” That's pretty much a given, and it will be a difficult task topping last season's, but we welcome any theories you want to share!

In the more immediate future, the upcoming Owen-centric episode will feature Iraq wartime flashbacks that are 100 percent Owen’s, as in "100 percent from his point of view."

As the sneak previews showed, we will gain a lot more insight into Dr. Hunt and how some of the very bad things he experienced on the front shaped the doc he is today.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

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."
