We knew it was going to be a tough road for Meredith.

Still, we weren't quite prepared for something like this.

The first sneak preview for Season 8 of Grey's Anatomy has been released, and it leaves no doubt about how Mer's professional transgressions are viewed by her employer.

Watch her meet with Richard in this clip from "Free Fallin'" ...

The two-part episode airs September 22. Will Derek be just as hostile toward Meredith? How will Alex be received by his colleagues, given his role in Meredith's downfall? Which way is Cristina leaning as far as the monumental decision she faces?

Follow the jump for ABC's first promo:

Hey Grey's Anatomy Cast. I would just like to say, I loved all the seasons so far. I learn a lot, even though I'm not a dr, I love dr and hospital series's. You even teach me about relationships at the same time, especially Chief Webber and Grey. Love it, Love it. Can't wait for next season.


damn im a huge south african fan i only wish to see all the parts that i missed out the last months and to be updated wht the latest news.


I m exciting for every possible storyline it may direct to absolutely changing in those characters,I inisiate that meredih-derek shouldn't be together,it might a brand new thing to refresh after on off their relationship..just hook mer with new guy please..


The show title plays off the medical book "Gray's Anatomy" but they show is primarily centered around Meredith Grey's story. Notice that she is the speaking narrator in the beginning and at the end of nearly every episode. Rhimes knows her fans well. She won't get rid of Meredith. She's really good at putting twists in the stories that initially scare us like Derek getting shot, Owen getting shot, too; Cristina quitting for a while, Callie and her baby coming to near death, etc. It's always worth it to see the storylines thru. I was really shocked that Henry died. I was starting to like him and Teddy. Now we'll get to see how Teddy, Cristina,and Owen respond once Teddy finds out the truth.


I think the writers have done their job. They've got us all stirred up; we are all mad at Alex Karev, I see some of you even hate him (which just makes him a good actor by the way), we are worried about Meredith Grey getting fired and how tampering with the clinical trial will affect her and Derek's marriage, and we are wondering if Christina will keep her baby and how her decision will affect her marriage to Owen. And we all can't wait until the season premier. I think it's great!!!! I love this show.


The name of the book is Gray's Anatomy with an 'a' not an 'e' like in the show so there is a connection between the character's name and the title, that is the twist they did...


The show is not about the Grey sisters! There is a medical book that is standard for any medical profession that is called "The Grey's Anatomy". Hence - the show's name!!


You guys clearly dont understand the show. and about mer leaving and its called "greys" anatomy... she's not a grey anymore. and there is still another grey in the show. its not impossible that this will happen. and what is with all the moaning about she did it for the good? yes yes she did it for the good, for the chiefs wife and fair doo's to her... but she may of helped her but it also meant she hurt someone elses family somewhere.. yes very much like izzie did when she stole denny that heart. understood. but this case is very much different no matter how much you try and compare her mistake to the others mainly due to the fact that is was her husbands trial. her husbands. and he was only doing this trial for her. to help if not stop her from turning into her mother (which remember he saw) then at least some day relieve somebody of the pain that mer had to go through with her mother and that he one day may have to because of mer. of course it was all for the 'greater good' of the hospital. but it just messed her over. and for that, she is an idiot.


I have watched this show from the beginning,it's wonderfull, warm, funny, caring, compassionate, I could go on and on, please don't fall into the trap of other shows by always tearing apart characters who have the kind of relaionship that all peiple asppire to in real life.
What Meredith did was wrong but she did it for the right reasons, Derek's reaction is totally over the top, please don't break these two up, they are the one stable pairing in the show and they are credible, please keep them in the show together.


... I think Meredith should get her job back and Christina should keep her baby. Now I agree people should NOT have babies if they dont think it's right, but it would be interesting to see if she only changes in the mothering skill department and not get soft

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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
