Meredith to Drop the Baby Bomb on Grey's Anatomy Next Week

by at . Comments

The seventh season premiere of Grey's Anatomy airs tonight at 9 p.m. on ABC. Don't expect Meredith to tell Derek about the miscarriage she suffered on last season's chilling finale.

That piece of information comes out next week, and when it does, Meredith will have kept the pregnancy and its failure secret for three months in the Grey's Anatomy universe. Why?

An emotional scene from the September 30 episode of Grey's Anatomy.

“The man was shot and he’s already feeling [responsible] for getting a bunch of people killed,” series creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes explains to EW regarding that.

“So for her to tell him that the shooting also caused her miscarriage seems a little bit cruel. He doesn’t need one more thing to worry about,” Rhimes says, somewhat reasonably.

The question is how he'll react to the news. We have some clue in the form of pictures from the September 30 episode. Follow this link for pictures from "Shock to the System."

I can't imagine how Derek is going to react because he already has so much guilt but at the same time we know that he still wants one, the scene from the on-call room where Derek suggests that he and Meredith make a baby almost made me cry. I totally wanted to reach through the TV set and give Meredith a hug because the look on her face seemed to be fear. When she followed him to the patient's room it was then that I think she realized she needed to tell him sooner rather than later because it was not fair to him to keep that kind of news to herself

From what we can see in the pictures from the episode, looks like Der is comforting and consoling her...

Shonda has screwed Mer over so many times. I sincerely hope she allows Der to comfort and console Mer instead of being a giant,huge douchey jerk like he usually is when he's hurt or angry. Let them love, grieve, heal together instead of tearing them apart Shonda Rhimes. I hope SR gives this scene/situation the dignity and poignancy it deserves. However, knowing SR's lack of emotional understanding in mature healthy relationships, I fear the worst.

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.

Meredith
