The Scoop Behind the Surprising Grey's Promo


You may have seen this promo for the upcoming season of Grey's Anatomy and had your jaw drop open because well, Rose said something to Derek along the lines of "I'm carrying your child."


What, you say? Because haven't we been being told by the show's creator herself that Meredith and Derek are going to remain together and happy this season?


Well, courtesy of EW's Michael Ausiello, there's already an explanation:

"That little promo caused quote the little firestorm over at ABC yesterday. Not only did it incur the wrath of millions of Rose-weary Mer-Der fans, but it essentially branded one of the network's most valuable assets (i.e. Shonda Rhimes) a big ol' liar. You see, in her ABC podcast that followed the show's finale last May, Rhimes assured fans that Grey's would not be employing any soap operatic stunts to pull Derek and Meredith apart this season -- and she specifically ruled out knocking up Rose. But someone apparently forgot to pass that bit of information on to the folks cutting together that incendiary clip. As a result, Rhimes has been forced to do the unthinkable: Issue an exclusive statement to me that basically denies the very plot twist that ABC shamelessly tried to dangle before us. "I would not deceive our fans," Rhimes tells me, "especially those loyal enough to listen to our podcast." Long story short: The only thing Rose will be carrying in the season premiere is a third wheel."


All together now: Phew.

I sit through this show even though i hate it. It's literally the only thing that is on lately and i hate all of the characters exact that sorta chubby girl doctor, but only because shes just adorable. "HEY LETS STOP DOCTORING TO ARGUE".......excuse me, you better sew my ass up before you fight over MC dreamy. This whole show is a big overblown soap opera, so why is it so hard to take that they are using soap drama to drag people apart?

In her season 4 finale podcast she said that no: - rose won't be pregnant, no Derek won't be in an accident, yes Meredith and Derek will be together forever.The season premiere is called "dream a little dream of me".So its pretty safe to assume that most of the huge plot twists eg, rose being pregnant (which is a lie ) and the guy on the gurney (supposedly derek) being hurt in an accident... are all part of a dream vs reality premiere. I have seen pictures from season 5 that were released this morning on spoiler tv. There is one where the driver of the limo that crashes is hurt, and has the exact same injuries as the guy on the gurney in the promo. So, my thoughts. Meredith and Derek get the limo driver as a patient, and Meredith end up having a nightmare about what if Derek was in an accident... and that would be the reason she screams NOOO!! as she see's him in a critical condition in the hospital. Thus, making her realise that she never ever wants to live without Derek again. ta da! So thats my theory. Go to the message boards for Grey's Anatomy at www.abc.com or www.greysanatomyinsider.com if you want other people views on whats really going on.
