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

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!

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.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

[narrating] The human life is made up of choices. Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. And then there are the choices that matter. Love or hate. To be a hero or to be a coward. To fight or to give in. To live. Or die. Live or die. That's the important choice. And it's not always in our hands.
