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

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."

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."

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."
