Grey's Anatomy Season 9 Premiere: First Photo!

by at . Comments

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

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
