Shonda Rhimes Teases Grey's Anatomy Season-Ender & More

at . Comments

She puts the Grey in Grey's Anatomy, but will we see a major Meredith story line anytime soon? Creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes acknowledges that new mom Ellen Pompeo’s storyline load was lightened this season so she could focus on motherhood.

That said, Fancast reports that over the next couple of episodes, Meredith will focus on not so much being a doctor as a healer, so to speak, as Dr. Grey is called upon to be an especially protective friend for several members of her Seattle Grace clique.

Who do you think that is?

As for the upcoming Season Six finale, Shonda Tweeted that May’s big ending will serve up “a serious game-changer for every single character.” That's pretty much a given, and it will be a difficult task topping last season's, but we welcome any theories you want to share!

In the more immediate future, the upcoming Owen-centric episode will feature Iraq wartime flashbacks that are 100 percent Owen’s, as in "100 percent from his point of view."

As the sneak previews showed, we will gain a lot more insight into Dr. Hunt and how some of the very bad things he experienced on the front shaped the doc he is today.

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)

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.
