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

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."

jackson got laid and I listened to some Florence and The Machine :D


the british chick is totally annoying, i want her out
karev and his new bff are totally adorable


@ Sarah C- she told him about accusing nurse Emily of sleeping with Owen, and found out she was wrong about it, they just flirt. When he got home Cristina said he wasn't really present in their relationship and asked him if he still loved her. Owen said he loved her so much it hurt and them told her he cheated on her with someone other than nurse Emily. End of episode.


Greys Anatomy will not be Greys without Cristina!!!! Switching one or two characters is fine, but it was hard enough when they got rid of Izzy and George!!!! Come on what are you trying to do to us!


Help! My DVR cut out as soon as Owen and Christina were going to talk. What did I miss!


I am over Sam and Addison, I think Jake could give her sooo much. I feel so bad for Christina and Owen,I hope the scenario is that they will come to a truce. She did something that hurt him and in turn he did something that hurt her. I'm not saying that two wrongs make a right. But hell in math terms two negatives do make a positive so maybe in this case they will work through this. I'm tired of seeing people get divorced when there is a rough patch. I would like to see a different light and show them staying together and continuing to work on their marriage.


I approve of Meredith and Derek.
I don't approve of Owen and Cristina at all anymore.
I've always had an on-and-off feel about Sam and Addison, which is why I am defiantly promoting Jake and Addison over Saddison.


Grey's Anatomy without Dr.Meredith Grey and our McDreamy is not possible.I really hope they will stay and we will see their family growing. But I have another point.....Sam and Addison come on.Jake is the better catch.The Palm Springs Episode was great and the chemistry of this couple was awesome.Addison needs happiness and I think she will find it with Jake.


I hope Ellen and Patrick stay... if they leave I will miss them too much but if one of them goes the other has to go cause I don't want them to end on a bad note after all these years. Also if one stays the other has to saty cause then they will still be together and happy... But i'm not deciding I just hope that's what there going to do......

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.
