Grey’s Anatomy Spoilers: Is a Divorce on the Horizon?

Don't panic, Grey's Anatomy Fanatics.

Before we go any further, allow us to answer the question in the headline with a flat-out NO.

Or, better yet, allow Shonda Rhimes to answer it.

"I don’t think that it’s a marriage-ending argument,” Rhimes tells EW of the fight between Meredith and Derek that concluded Grey's Anatomy Season 10.

"I actually would like to watch a couple have a hard time in their marriage, and have it not be that that means their marriage is over."

Derek vs. Meredith - Grey's Anatomy

Grey's Anatomy Season 11 has been dubbed "The Year of Meredith" by Rhimes, as the drama's title character will no longer take a backseat to her husband's career.

"There’s something really great about watching a couple have a mature marriage where stuff goes wrong, things are hard, and people try to push through it and figure it out," Rhimes adds.

The super producer also tells TV Line that Jo and Alex will have some problems... because of Meredith?

"Alex feels responsible for her,” Rhimes says, explaining why Meredith and Alex will be spending a lot of time together this fall. “He feels like Cristina didn’t just leave him a seat on the board and the shares, she left him Meredith as well."

Alex will find himself “in the uncomfortable position of being the recipient of a lot of the stuff that Cristina would have been left listening to,” Rhimes teases, though she emphasizes that the two will be strictly platonic.

Grey's Anatomy Season 11 premieres on Thursday, September 25 at 8/7.

I am glad that Meredith and Derek will not be divorcing! Couples do argue but that does not mean divorce!
I also love the exploring Meredith and Alex's friendship.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

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.
