Countdown until Grey's Anatomy returns: 44 days. Is it just me or does that sound like an awfully long time?
To help people deal with this longish hiatus, let's go over where the couples stand right now. That, or you can watch/catch up on Private Practice, which returns this week with a two-hour episode.
Meredith and Derek'
It has happened. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey), the couple who used to can't catch a break, seems like they've reached a good, stable plateau in their relationship - away from that "dark and twisty place" that periodically rears its ugly head but has had as of late taken a prolonged hiatus, too.
After getting married, sort of, via post-its, Mer and Der hasn't had their share of problems and tribulations on Seattle Grace, something that cannot be said with the other Grey's Anatomy couples. It also helped that Meredith (or actually Ellen Pompeo) took some time off to recuperate from the liver transplant.
So they're happy now. Remember that scene when Meredith lamented that there has only been a few seconds of happiness for her when she found out that Izzie (Katherine Heigl) survived and then she realized it was George in that deathbed? How did McDreamy deal with it? He gave her a flurry of kisses for every second that she missed.
