from a purely logical standpoint, Grey's hasn't even gone through a whole year in tv time. Addison will have been there for six,seven, eight..? months and then she just jumps ship and moves somewhere else? No right minded professional would do that. Second, she is head of Obstetrics and has the top neo-nat unit in the country according to the show. What possible job would make her give that up... Shonda has some explaining to do

THIS BETTER BE A FRIGGING RUMOR OR THE SHOW HAS JUST BEEN SHOT TO HELL. TO HELL I SAY.

okay okay ... i dont really get everything ^^ (cos i'm german and my english is ...well ...not good enough) but wow - kate is leaving the show and gets her own show or what? i mean shes one of my faves! In this show or episode or whatever this thing with kate is , will they show it in germany too???
oh man, it sucks ^^ shonda is a really good writer but if meredith (maybe) dies, and kate leaves the show too ...it wouldnt be the same GA ^^
and i've got another question: how many seasons will they produce (GA) ?
In germany we're on the 2nd season ... well anyway...
I love the show!!!!

Nooo!!! Addison is the best character from Grey's! She can't go! What about her relation with Alex? and mark? I think she's not done with SGH, it will be so boring without her... i love Kate so i wish her the best luck with the spinoff, i hope it works, but if not she should return to Grey's. Good luck Kate!

I love kate walsh. don't get me wrong. but i have mixed emotions with the potential GA spin-off. i mean, what about addex??? just when i was beginning to like them. and plus, SGH will not be the same without addie. she just brings a certain "something" to the show. i know i'll definitely watch kate's solo show but c'mon! it's just so difficult to accept a somewhat "break up" in the show. i love and hate it at the same time. but i will always love everyone in grey's. this sucks but you guys still rock. =)

I'm happy for Kate. I'm wondering if Shonda will still write and produce Grey's, I hope so.

Ok, the thing about all this stuff that has been happening recently is.....Shonda is messing around too much with a good thing. Maybe she is just testing her writing limits and trying to get Addison a show that can make her character expand more but I think that especially with the recent episodes with Meredith's death (if she has died, we'll find out soon) she's just messing it around too much. Grey's Anatomy as it is at the moment is an immensely successful show and yet Shonda and is trying to move stuff around, forcing storylines that ultimately seem a little pointless. Yes, its exciting and tense I have to admit the whole Meredith will she won't she kick it thing, but I think that the whole thing is just entirely pointless because I'm pretty certain Shonda isn't going to kill the main character - Grey's has formed around Meredith and without it, its not really anything. She knows that she will lose a large part of the fan base if she kills Meredith so I think she's just put this storyline in to get viewers. As people have said its all about the money. If Meredith does die in tonight's episode then I will have a great respect for Shonda doing something that people rarely do. Lets look at other shows, Buffy survives twice after dying, Angel comes back from the dead. People kill characters and bring them back which I believe Shonda will do as well! And with making a new show she has more ratings and therefore more money from it. I know people are saying that Addison hasn't got as big a part in the show anymore so its not a bad thing she's getting her own show but personally I love the character, and some of the scenes with Addison and Alex are the ones that really excite me about the show - its the tension between them! I think Addison is just as important as Burke, or ....Mark?! I mean what's Mark doing in there - not much really! So why is no one saying he should get his own show?! Obviously you can tell I'm rather against the idea but I guess I'll have to watch it, I'll have to fill Shonda's pockets which is what she wants! I think Addison has brought a certain quality to the show, however subtle it may be and i strongly believe that Shonda is making a mistake by taking Addison out, but I think once they've made the decision Addison can't really come back to GA so ......i think this signals the end of an amazing character!
Another point, if we look at Lost's ratings recently, they've got down by something like 25% - purely because a whole island of new characters has been introduced - as silly as it sounds viewers don't like such a big change like that! The LOST writers have been messing around too much with a perfectly good formula and they get their comeupance! I don't want to see the same happen to GA, but the way Shonda is going I think it might!
Anyway, congrats to Kate Walsh for landing her own show!
