Meet the New Grey's Anatomy Nazi ... Meredith?!

by at . Comments

We've seen dark and twisty Meredith Grey for the better part of eight seasons, and even had a brief, bizarro look at bright and sunny Meredith Webber during an alternate-universe installment ("If/Then") in February.

Now get ready for an entirely new side to the ABC drama's title character: Nazi Meredith.

"She's definitely angry at the beginning of the season," Ellen Pompeo tells TV Guide.

"She's angry about all the stuff that happened, so she's teaching her interns and she's really mean to them. It's an homage to the first Dr. Grey, Meredith's mother, who is the first bitch surgeon."

"I get to channel Kate Burton and be mean."

Guess this helps answer the question of how Meredith responds to Lexie's death and the plane crash trauma that will no doubt impact the surgeons long after their rescue in the forest.

Will it end well, though? Is Nazi Meredith a brief phase, or a sign of a darker turn for the character over the long haul? Comment below with your thoughts on this and all things Grey's Anatomy ...

I really like that idea ! Would be so cool to see Meredith a bit like her mom, and i'm quite sure it's gonna be funny at times ! Now i don't think it'll last, Meredith is not Ellis deep down, I'm sure it's just phase.


Hope she only puts out her anger on her interns. If she's a bitch to Zola and Der, i'll be pissed.


She was so awesome in s5 with George and the interns, he told her that is so Bailey. So looking forward to Nazi Meredith, she has lots to be angry about and it will be a different way for Ellen to play Meredith. Excited about this!


hAHAHAHAH nice twist. I remeber her from s5 when she drilled some interns. It will be funny! :D


It's not really surprising, especially if Alex and Cristina have left Seattle.
She's dealing with a dead sister, possible loss of two best friends, an injured husband, emotional trauma of being in a plane crash and the possible loss of her husbands best friend. I expect a complete personality change for every character.
