Grey's Anatomy Season 9 Premiere: First Photo!

A new photo has surfaced online, purportedly from the Grey's Anatomy Season 9 premiere.

What's not to love about a tender MerDer moment, after what they've been through?

Exactly.

Mere-Der Love

Notice that while kissing his wife in the hospital hallway, Derek's hands are hidden ... maybe we're reading into it, but this could be in line with the theory that he's recovering from his crash injuries.

Figuring out how to regain his top-notch abilities as a doctor is expected to be one of the big storylines for Derek this fall, as well as being a "happy, sexy couple" with Meredith in this "Year of Romance."

Shonda Rhimes' words, not ours!

“One of the things I said to the writers was, ‘I want a lot more romantic scenes. I want to see that Derek and Meredith are a happy, sexy couple,’” Rhimes tells TV Line. “They basically settled down in a lot of ways."

"They are very settled. They’re married, they have a child, and they’re both working. I want to see what that means for them as a couple and how they, against the odds, manage to keep that relationship sexy and fun."

"So we’re playing with that and it’s been really fun.”

September 27 can't come fast enough.

Shonda Rhimes you really are brilliant. I cannot WAIT for the season to start. Keep up the GREAT work. Love you Ellen and Patrick.

I understand that they're husband and wife, but it just seems so unlike them both to fall back on each other when Derek's hand is practically unfixable and Meredith is grieving heavily over Lexie's death.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.

Meredith

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
