at . Comments

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:

How do you predict all of these story lines will end up when the dust settles next month? Leave a comment below to discuss these clips from the eighth season ...

I think christina should be given head of cardio after her ground breaking technic that fixes heart valves by putting new valve in though artery and glueing it to old one so no need to open up chest
this puts her in running to get the harper avery award


Here's my predictions for this new season. As a whole, I think Meredith and Derek will be/are done. What Meredith did was unethical in a professional manner but also shines a light on how she might behave taking care of their new child. There's no way that with Meredith not having a job that she can afford to take care of the baby herself. If she keeps the baby, someone else will give her money to support it or she will give it up. Alex is going to be hated by everyone all season long for what he did to Meredith, but what he did was the right thing to do. He turned her in to the chief because Meredith was messing with people's lives and that's wrong. I think Cristina is going to abort the baby and her and Owen are done-zo. Owen wont be able to understand Cristina's decision to abort the baby because he believes that she should have the baby. In a marriage, you have to make decisions based on what both people agree upon. It's not a one way street. If this is true, Owen is going to try and get back with Teddy. I hope Teddy and Henry stay together, but in all reality, if Owen dumps Cristina because of the whole baby issue, Teddy is the only perosn he would run to. When/If Owen comes back to Teddy, It will kill Henry, possibly literally. If I've missed anyone or any important situations, please comment on this and let me know and I will be more than happy to give my opinion on it. Til next time, folks.


i miss burke... i wish they would bring him back.. i don't think meredith will be fired for long it would ruin the whole series.. but i do think she needs to figure out what kind of surgeon she is going to be... general.. neuro.. etc. cristina has always said she doesn't want a baby.. it will be interesting to see what she does.. alex got his african kids to the usa in a pretty shady manner.. i thought it was pretty low of him to push meredith under the bus.. i hope he has a miserable life in season eight with no friends.


ah man i cannot believe they fired her and i love jackson avery i hope him and lexie stay together for a long time i hate mark sloan he is not good for her and cristina is so dumb you commited to him so the least thing you could do is have kids.




They are so not going to fire Meredith. What she did was unethical but it was out of passion and love. She knew it was wrong but she would do it again if given the circumstances. Derek way over reacted, her professional mistakes do not affect the outcome of how she will be as a parent. Lexie and Avery make such a cute couple, Sloan is such a pig and all wrong for her. He slept with numerous woman while they were on the outs and even got Callie pregnant! I'm excited to watch April start her Chief Residency and how everyone reacts to her as well. I hope Teddy stays for Henry cause he is so in love with her which is what she's been searching for. We find love in unexpected places for sure! Alex is such a douche! The one person who has been by his side through everything is the first person he throws under the bus. Sure he's a great doctor, but professionally he can't be trusted. Can't wait for Season 8!


I do think Owen has a right to be angry. It's their baby. Not Cristina's. His feelings were not considered, and they should have been. They're married.


I never really liked the whole "Meredith and Derek" thing. I really hope Cristina keeps the baby. They said that the issue would be resolved in an "unexpected way". If she terminates it, I think that will be the end of her relationship with Owen, and she can't do the whole miscarriage thing again. Plus, a pregnant Cristina Yang sounds hilarious. I hope Lexie stays with Jackson. I like them together, and I think Mark needs to find someone that is looking for the same things he is, instead of longing for Lexie.


Alex is the best character in the series, the other are sloppy. He's a good person, he has had a lot of problem in his life, but he never puts them on others. He is not as unbearably selfish as Christina or incredibly capricious like Meredith.


i for one want to see izzie stevens back in season eight i dont want christina to get rid of her pregnancy i think mark sloan can survive without lexie so still want to see avery and lexie 2gether as for derek i dont even want to go there cos he over reacted.....all this put 2gether i cant wait to see wait season eight entails!!!!

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.
