Meredith to Drop the Baby Bomb on Grey's Anatomy Next Week

at . Comments

The seventh season premiere of Grey's Anatomy airs tonight at 9 p.m. on ABC. Don't expect Meredith to tell Derek about the miscarriage she suffered on last season's chilling finale.

That piece of information comes out next week, and when it does, Meredith will have kept the pregnancy and its failure secret for three months in the Grey's Anatomy universe. Why?


An emotional scene from the September 30 episode of Grey's Anatomy.

“The man was shot and he’s already feeling [responsible] for getting a bunch of people killed,” series creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes explains to EW regarding that.

“So for her to tell him that the shooting also caused her miscarriage seems a little bit cruel. He doesn’t need one more thing to worry about,” Rhimes says, somewhat reasonably.

The question is how he'll react to the news. We have some clue in the form of pictures from the September 30 episode. Follow this link for pictures from "Shock to the System."

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.
