Grey's Anatomy > Patrick Dempsey Confirms Grey's Anatomy Departure > Comments Page 2
good now they can both leave and the show can be about cristina!
Gar, my guts churns more and more just thinking about what is going to happen in season 8 and everytime i read the stories online it churns more.
Can we just remember he was saying this to an Italian magazine not the American media. Dempsey and co are on vacation not even working, ABC probably hasn't even approached them yet and most likely won't until they get back to work on July 15 when they commence filming next season.
Shonda has already said next season will be more Mer/Der and their struggles, their struggles to raise a family, work fulltime etc, THEY ARE NOT DIVORCING the fans would stage a riot on here if she does that no doubt. Think the actors themselves should have a big say in the script this season if it really is going to be their last year.
Also with all the sounding off happening with PD his publicist and himself are probably going wow we are loved, Yes Patrick you are the star of the show! with Ellen in second position.
So look forward to season 8, if you think a
I have to add this. What incentive have they given to Patrick to want to stay. He's had very little airtime, ridiculous storylines, etc. Does that sound like remotely any incentive for an actor to want to stay? He's been very loyal, never a hint of discontent, lived up to his contract and what did he get for it. The last two years he's been in the background unless Shonda needed a spoiler or two to make people watch. Then there would be all this hoopla about something that was going to happen with him, and then nothing or a one minute scene. I think it was disrespectful to him as an actor with a long career and an actor that many fans to the show. He didn't go public and act like Katherine Heigl all disgruntled. No matter what he privately may have felt, he never said anything, at least that I heard of. He went to foreign countries for his charity work and along the way he was great advertisement for Grey's. But what did he get for appreciation. Oh yes, less screen time. O
I sincerely doubt as evil as she can be that Shonda would say they split. I'm betting neither will renew and when Lexie becomes the focus they'll refer to them having quit SGH to focus on their family or possibly to start an alzheimer's clinic, etc.
Let's hope mer goes with him and they start their own pratice,hospital wherever!
Please Shonda! Let them go towards the sunset in a horse just this time!!!!!
I prefer an amazing happy end of the show than they leave or broke up again!!
Here's a quote from EW :
"The actor’s publicist released a statement to EW that suggested he was taken somewhat out of context during a recent interview that’s set stirred up Grey’sfans. Dempsey told the Italian edition of Vanity Fair that he won’t return to Grey’s Anatomyafter next season. “It will be my last,” Dempsey said. “I don’t know what will happen with the other characters, but for me, it’s done.”
That sounds pretty clear to us. But Dempsey’s rep says he was only referring to his contract being up after next season and it’s uncertain what he will do next:
“He was referring to the fact that his contract is up at the end of next season and we have no idea what the future holds.” "
If he's going away i prefer meredith leaving with him...to see them slipt up again is to sad for me to watch.
I'll watch it for cristina and april and lexie...
the remainig part of my childhood just died...
@katiej: Yeah, they don't have feelings. But the people who watch it, do! You may think I'm over-reacting, but the truth is that I'm just passionate about it. And if you clearly stated: "we don't need to like it anymore", then you need to stop commenting on posts of shows you simply don't like anymore.
@Aries93 um, shows can't have hurt feelings. and saying that we think the show is going down hill isn't stabbing it in the back, it's simply the truth, that's what we think. whining about how we should be nice to a tv show of all things isn't rebutting, it's silly. it's just a tv show! we don't need to like it anymore
So I think that it's okay if Patrick leaves. He signed a contract for 8 years and he's been there the whole time. He kept his promise, not like some others (Katherine Heigl, though she had a good reason, T.R.Knight) and so even though I'm Patrick's biggest fan ever, it sure makes me sad that he leaves, but everything has an end and if he says that he's not comfortable by continuing to be Derek Shepherd, than I respect his decision. And all of Grey's fans should respect it. Come on guys. He kept his promise, he made us all happy by not leaving, now it's our turn to support him. He wants to make more movies! The bill is better and if he loves it more, I'm happy for him.
For Ellen, if she leaves, of course it will be awkward because Grey's was made for her in the first place. Grey's without MerDer will be weird, for sure. But there's other characters. Chyler Leight (Lexie) could for sure take the lead, even Ellen said that if she doesn't renew her contract, she'd be happy to see Chyler
The rating for season 7 should drop a bit_we have not significant finale and we have horrible musical
I can imagine GA without Derek but I can not imagine it without
Meredith. If EP leaves and the others do not leave the show should be change its name -may be SGH .
@katiej: It mad not be the 'stick-your-head-in-the-sand-and-praise-grey's-no-matter-what website', but it's also not the 'I'm gonna stab the show in the back and abuse it because I feel like website' either. I may be the only one defending the show right now, but that's because I'm the part of the ratings that tune in every episode. And while it comes to critics, you should also look at the ones whom praise the show. Every critic has an opinion. So yeah, you're allowed to say that you're not a fan and you don't approve of the casting choices, but you cannot sit there on your computer and keyboard-abuse a TV show that others love and not expect a rebuttal. And if you don't like it, then don't read the comments that you find defending the show.
@Aries93, because this isn't the 'stick-your-head-in-the-sand-and-praise-grey's-no-matter-what website?' if we think the show has gone downhill, which both ratings and critics would suggest, we're allowed to say so. if you don't want to hear criticism then don't read the comments or reviews.
I don't understand why people are commenting with things such as:
"This show has been crap for a while. It should have stopped years ago" and "This season was worst and the storylines were horrible!".
It's fine to have an opinion of the show, and even though it did start off with 16 million viewers and went up to over 21 million viewers the following seasons and at one time (the bomb episode) went up to 36 million. But if you're part of the 8-11 million people (such as myself) who are still watching this show WITHOUT criticizing it and are NOT going to be backing out because a favorite character OR two may be leaving it AFTER season 8, then well done to you. You're the loyal people.
I will admit that this show can sometimes jump the gun or lack as much as intensity as the episode that was on the previous week, but you watch a show to see how characters develop and how they deal with their problems and who they become. Yes, people back out, but can you blame them? After 5 years (T.R
Before this show started all the original actors signed a 8 year contract Katherine Heigl and TR Knight included (they wanted out of their contracts early), so the rest of the cast have to decide to renew there individual contracts and if they do they stay as Patrick Dempsey has stated he won't be renewing his contract, so when his contract ends at after season 8, Derek Shepherd will no longer be part of Grey's Anatomy.
So we all should be preparing to bid farewell to this amazing show now. Shonda has stated in an earlier interview, that she is heading into season 8 as if it's the series season final.
I have my fingers crossed that the other actors want to renew their contracts and we will see a season 9 and maybe a season 10 minus Meredith and Derek.
We as fans need Shonda Rhimes to come out and actually announce that Season 8 is indeed Grey's Anatomy's final season ever.
Maybe do another spin-off? With the added characters Callie, Arizona, Jackson, Lexie, Mark, Eli, Teddy
i luv greys anatomy despite the major changes they hav made to the show whether it b by extendin the main cast or takin my fav characters to places where i didnt wnna c them go bc greys provides gr8 dialogue mixed with witty banter nd heartwrenchin storylines nd dats wat makes it a top notch show now in response to patrick dempsey aka mc dreamy leavin i for one neva wanted it to happen but lets b real pple i knew when they first mentioned his nd ellen contract wld b up in two yrs around the end of last season when evrybdy was wiggin out bout him possibly bein killed off the show in the shooting dat dis wld eventually happen im bummed but the show i believe can thrive without one or two of its main characters if ellen were to go too nd i think with the fans it wld take a while to readjust to a merder free enviroment but i think greyz will always bounce bac as lng as shonda rhimes is their
This is actually expected in my opinion. Theres gonna be eight seasons and I honestly think it should have stopped after season 5. Season 6 and 7 were just pointless. I love this show and have been watching since season one but I think that they should stop it sooner rather then later because it is really just going downhill. I also do not think that the show should continue without Meredith Grey(Ellen Pompeo) it would be pointless. Like I know this season has pretty much been Calzonas Anatomy but technically it is still about Meredith and I think it would be ridiculous if they didnt stop when she does. The show will be stupid and I cannot commit to watching it after Mer/Der leave, especially since it will be season 9 by then and I think that they are running out of storylines and pretty soon it is just going to be too repetitive. Like how many times can we see a couple break up and get back together or a character almost die? It's repetitive and old and no one wants to watch the same
all of you all are saying that the rest of the cast just any good.Only mer/der are the only ones that can act.EP or PD was well known til they was casted for greys.The show made them.You think its going to be easy to do movies i mean top rated ones.Don't want to bust all of you all bubble its not easy.I feel the other cast memebers is just as good or better.Iam going to still watch the show no matter what.I dont feel two people is the whole show.Unless the show is based only on them.I enjoy all of the cast memebers.I like some better then others.Thats all good.Stop whinning about every thing.If you choose not to watch dont,you have that right.
I want to see Alex karev shirtless again, he's so hot. And they should have shown him actually giving his "contribution" in the cup for Izzie's eggs. He's incredibly sexy
I'm sure most of the actors are tired of doing this show. This season was absolutely the worst of all. No storyline that was interesting; characters boring and I was looking forward to the commercials instead of watching the show. It's time .. the writer's must be exhausted trying to come up with something new every episode and the characters all appear to be going through the motions instead of really being into the script. Sandra Oh has just gotten worse with each year and this was her worst acting (if you can call it that) ever. Goodbye Grey's - it was fun while it lasted.
The show has been crap for years. They are jumping off ship. The show lost focus years ago but this past season was just embarrassing. Callie and Arizona to that idiot Hunt the show is going down the tubes. You can thank the writes who care more making a statement with all the creating of gay relationships than truly following the heartbeat of the show.
My heart has sunk at this official statement from Patrick! I still have hope that the powers that be can talk Patrick and Ellen into staying one more year. I will not have any interest in watching Grey's without MerDer.
If they do leave Grey's, I beg Shonda to let them have a happy ending leaving the show together. The fans will have 8 years invested in this couple and we want a happy ending for them. Maybe Mer gets pregnant and they go live by Derek's family in New York so their kids could be near aunts and cousins. Give them the happily ever after!! Meredith and Derek need to leave together as they belong together! Made for each other!
