Ellen Pompeo: Meredith Clearly Crossed the Line

at . Comments

In a recent interview, Patrick Dempsey discussed the future of Meredith and Derek on Grey’s Anatomy. At best, he painted a murky picture for the couple moving forward.

Dempsey's character is clearly livid following the revelation of his wife's meddling on Adele's behalf in the clinical trial, and Ellen Pompeo sees it, he has every right to be.

“Listen, what Meredith did clearly crossed a line. Derek has a right to be pissed,” Pompeo tells TV Line's Matt Webb Mitovich. At the same time, that's Meredith to a T.

Mer: Grace Under Pressure

“Derek so often stands on his moral high ground,” she says, while Mer sees things as ... well, Grey. "It’s who Meredith is, and Derek should understand that,” she adds.

That said, where does the couple go from here? While acknowledging that Derek has every right to be upset, is this really a deal-breaker? Pompeo says no way.

“I think Derek should feel wronged for a second,” the actress tells TV Line, “but then he needs to get over it, quick!” Will he? Should he? Sound off with your comments ...

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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

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."
