Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: MerDer Time Bombs!

at . Comments

Calzona may or may not be having babies.

Cristina becomes a sobbing mess.

Derek is going to jail.

Clearly, the aftermath from the tragic shooting spree within the halls of Seattle Grace will not be quickly shaken off by the surgeons. But some of the spoilers and rumors running wild online are leaving fans concerned for the welfare of their favorite characters.

Regarding the Derek bit, EW's Michael Ausiello offers more insight on how McDreamy ends up behind bars: In the season premiere, Derek gets arrested for being a speed addict.

As in he feels the need for speed. Behind the wheel. Is art imitating life for Patrick Dempsey? “[Derek] is doing a lot of speeding - in a car, not with drugs,” Shonda Rhimes says.

“He’s on an exuberant high, that adrenaline rush one gets after facing death and surviving. It’s something we hadn’t explored before - the idea that when something bad happens you go to a place of, ‘Now I can do anything.’ Meredith, however, sees his behavior as dangerous.”

Ausiello notes, correctly, that this is just one of two "time bombs" hanging over the couple this season. When we pick up the action, two months have passed since Gary Clark shot up the hospital and Meredith has still not told him about the pregnancy and miscarriage.

That will certainly be interesting to watch play out, as will the baby situation with Callie and Arizona. On that subject, Rhimes offers the following teaser:

“Will there be a baby right away? No. Will Callie’s turnaround [about children] stick? Yes.”

How will Callie and Arizona move forward? Will Derek slow the heck down - and if he finds out about the pregnancy, can he and Meredith work through it?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."
