Grey's Anatomy Burning Question: How Do Meredith and Derek Respond?

at . Comments

The list of burning questions is a mile long heading into Grey's Anatomy Season 9.

The latest we address today? How do Meredith and Derek react to Lexie's death?

Mere will deal in a way "that’s a little surprising," according to creator Shonda Rhimes, cryptically as ever. And as for Derek, will he be able to operate again after losing his sister-in-law?

Or will he suffer a crisis of conscience, and/or potential limitations via injury?

That Der Look

Rhimes says he'll face the existential question of “what kind of doctor are you when you can’t do the thing you’re greatest at any more? We’re going to see him head back, but there is that question for him."

How do you think he'll handle it? And who is on the gurney?

Sound off on these issues facing our beloved, embattled surgeons and all things Grey's Anatomy as we count down the days until Thursday, September 27 (32 days) below ...

I forgot to say Meredith could have taken Lexie's hand and give her encouragement to live. Told her she love her and to hang on. She is going to get Derek to help get her out. Derek will deal with Lexie death like losing a little sister. Because he was more of a big brother to Lexie than Meredith was s big sister

Meredith going to deal with Lexie death the same way she dealt with her mother death her dog and losing her baby. she gets over them really quick. So Lexie death isn't going to faze her a bit. why? Because she walked away from her dying sister under a plane to look for her husband. And she was suppose to LOVE HER. She would have looked for Lexie if Christina or Derek were under the plane. My opinion.

It could be any of them on the gurney, as they are all hurt, but it's most likely Mark or Arizona.
As for Meredith, either she denies Lexie's death or maybe she loses it completely (after all, isn't she usually strong ?) About Derek, I'm quite sure he won't operate for quite a while, which is indeed a completely new situation for that character (so that might be interesting) and I'm quite sure that if she survives, Arizona won't be up and running before a while either.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
