Her Person is gone. Her husband may soon be joining her.
But Meredith Grey will not be going anywhere on Grey's Anatomy Season 11. Creator Shonda Rhimes has made that very clear.
"Right now, if you were in the writers’ room, you would probably tell me that the theme is ‘Meredith,’” Rhimes tells TV Line of Season 11. “Because all I keep saying is, ‘The show is just about Meredith Grey!"
Don't expect a time jump to take place when the series returns on September 25, but do look forward to what Rhimes describes as a “Meredith-centric season."
And a lot of that focus will have to do with Maggie, Meredith's half-sister (courtesy of Richard) who was formerly introduced as such on the Grey's Anatomy Season 10 finale.
“What Webber does with the information is going to be very interesting,” Rhimes teases to TV Guide. "Whether Richard admits his part in it at all is going to be very interesting. It's very earth-shattering information. It undoes everything Meredith thought to be true about her past and her childhood."
As for other fan favorites this fall?
Look for Bailey to not respond well to Yang giving her board position to Alex; for April and Jackson “to grow up in a way that’s amazing” in the wake of their pregnancy news; and for Calzona to face "problems" via the concept of their surrogate.
We know what you're thinking: Is it September 25 yet?!?
There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
