Grey's Anatomy Scoop: Which Couple's Road is Dark?

by at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice return with all-new episodes tonight, and the creator of both ABC medical dramas, Shonda Rhimes, is making the media rounds to prepare us for the developments to come.

Let's get right to it, shall we?

On the Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) front, this little tidbit should make fans smile: "You will see the dream house before the end of the season," Shonda teased to E! Online.

"Although, we're getting closer and closer to the end of the season and now I'm not totally 100 percent sure how the season's going to end because contract negotiations haven't been finished. So I will say I'm planning on it and I am extremely hopeful we're going to see the dream house before the end of the season."

Faced With a Crisis

On a less optimistic note, regarding Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd): "It's going to get darker, people! It's going to get darker before it gets better," Shonda reveals.

"Cristina has gone through tremendous personal growth," Shonda explains. "For me, I was really interested in exploring [how] Cristina is, first and foremost before she's anything else, a surgeon and she's a person of gift."

"When that happens in men, everyone accepts it. When it happens in women, it's a very different thing."

"I'm really interested in exploring that with that character because there's something really wonderful about this idea of an extraordinarily talented, gifted woman who is unapologetic about her desire not to have children and to have things sort of go her way and what that means when you're in a relationship. It's very complex."

Turning our attention to Private Practice's Sam (Taye Diggs) and Addison (Kate Walsh): "Things get very interesting. Jake has feelings for Addison, that's very clear, and Addison might have some feelings for Jake."

"But, I think that Sam is always still very close to her heart and their problems don't seem so insurmountable to me. I really feel like Addison deserves some happiness and I'd like to see her get it."

I would love to see Addison and Jake together I am so tired of the Sam and Addison on again off again, she belongs with Jake they have better chemistry.

Love MerDer and Zo. My heart bleeds 4 Christina and Owen. Been there. So pissed that we forget he chocked her and she took him bsck now this Shonda pleade make the pain go away.

I agree MerDer need as much screen time as possible & they must have a baby or babies of their own. That will show how much their characters have evolved, especially Mer. They MUST stay together!

hey guys i'm searching for a GA song.. Its very slow and with high eocivs they sing something like you get me' and there are very high eocivs in the background. Souns a little bit like Kate Havnevik!This sounds stupid but maybe anyone knows what i'm searching for

I agree with tina, what would be grey's anatomy with out derek and meredith,she show started with meredith and has to end up with her!! Plus the title will have no more sense if the show continue with out her. And for private practice, I really think that addison should end up with jake, they so great together and this couple could last a long time. I don't see her having a futur with sam.

It doesnt make sense , someone like Cristina would just end the relationship, move on and focus more on her gift as a surgeon and final exams rather then humiliate herself like she's been doing for the last couple of episodes. No?
As for MerDer, I never believed Shonda could make a Merder tub scene look boring but she manage to do it somehow!!!

DEREK AND MEREDITH ARE THE STARS OF THE SHOW, THEY NEED TO BE IN ALL EPISODES OR THE SHOW WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THIS SHOW HAVE MANY MORE SEASONS, MANY SHOWS CANCELL AFTER 7 OR 8 SEASONS. I HOPE THIS ONE WILL BE KEPT ALIVE FOR A LONG TIME. AS FAR AS PRIVATE PRACTICE, ADDISON AND JAKE IS THE BETTER CHOICE, THIS WOULD MAKE SUCH A GREAT STORY LINE, AND LIVEN THINGS UP. THEY CLEARLY HAVE CHEMISTRY TOGETHER, AND WOULD MAKE A GREAT COUPLE.

Grrr does anyone know if there are previews out for the next episode?

I really hope that Ellen and Patrick return...and I am hoping that Meredith and Derek will have a surprise pregnancy and end up having a miracle baby. I know that would make the fans really happy. To add suspense there should be some sort of accident or situation that happens that puts meredith and the unborn child in danger...maybe add Zola to the mix? Everyone was amazed at the 3 part episode with the ferry crash...and I know a miracle baby, on top of an accident that will endanger their lives will be the perfect story line for season 9! You can add to Christina and Meredith's relationship, Derek and Meredith, and Christina and Owen. The fans want more Meredith and Derek, and we have been waiting so long for the two of them to have their own baby! This story line is really something to consider, especially since people are angered by the original cast not getting as much screen time.

And how come Grey's would be Grey's Anatomy if possibly(!)main caracter(s) would leave? It's like One Tree Hill which supposed to be about two brothers but how can it be if one of them left and it's like totally new line.. Just one word more, if directors are going to play with us that way then I would like if the show stopped.
