Will New Grey's Anatomy Guest Star Spell More Trouble For Derek & Meredith?

by at . Comments

Perhaps it's appropriate that as Addison - once the most hated TV wife in America - mulls her departure from Seattle Grace, a new Grey's Anatomy guest star may spell trouble for Meredith and Derek.

Chyler LeighAccording to E! Online's Kristin Veitch, sources close to Grey's Anatomy report that Chyler Leigh â€" the former Reunion star who plays the woman in the bar we saw in the previews for this week - has just been offered a role in a multiple-episode arc for next season.

Fans no doubt hope that her storyline has something to do with Cristina or Burke or Dr. Bailey or Callie or Izzie or... pretty much anyone but Derek Shepherd.

But if the first few seasons of Grey's Anatomy are any indication, we wouldn't count on it. Even if they belong together, the producers seem to devise new ways to drive Mer and Der apart.

arghh its so frustrating when they leave such cliffhangers!! i know i am not the only one who will be severely depressed until the new season starts, our questions are answered and our minds put to rest. i love mcdreamy and meredith they're a great couple and i do think they belong together; however, they are not perfect. i agree with the others, it would be boring without a few twists in the plot - this is what entertains us and keeps us all hooked. introducing lexie grey as derek's potential new love interest was a good idea - it certainly will make me tune into the next series anyway!!! having said this, i HATE her. i really do wish mer & der could find some happiness, that preferably they could hold onto for more than a week. they definitely deserve it after all they have been through over the last few series!!!!! so note to shonda & all the other writers: love you, but you're losing your touch. please get your butts in gear and bring back the fun show we all know and love!

To all greys anatomy fans. We all want Meridith and Derick to stay together, get married, and live happily ever after. But the real reality is if that happens there wont be much excitement left. Most of us tune in every week to find out how they're doing. We cant do that if they are all lovey dovey. I think the writers are brillant. they are keeping us guessing. It wouldnt exciting if the show was perfect.

Mary, Callie got Chief Resident, Chief Weber was congratulating McDreamy for Chief of Surgery.
Lexie would be a great addition, McSteamy needs a friend. =)

I think It's just a show... and the writers make more interesting their production with twists and turns. The new Guest Star is a good ingredient for Grey's and actually can bring more heat to the show.

Well I have to agree, this was a shocking ending....George Not Passing His Boards. Lexi I personally think great storyline to add shake things up a bit. I personally, am tired of Mer. Whining each week. Now, what would be great would be if Izzy, and Calli BOTH END UP PREGNANT, I do have question I am confused why the Board (At Hospital) the letter posted stated Calli was new Intern then you see Mcdreamy speaking to chief and he shakes his hand to Congragulate.

I was really hurt by the season finale. Why would the writer's do this to us, the fans. Izzy is not being fair. George was here all along why can't she leave him alone to be with Callie.
TO THE WRITERS I HOPE YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. EASE OFF OF MER PLEASE.

Where do people get the idea that Mer & Der belong together? The slut pursued him even after she found out he was married, and trying to work things out with Addison. I and many others, who are not on these boards, never liked either character (Mer or Der) on that show, and hate them together even more. Besides superficial, warm & fuzzy talk, there is no chemistry between the two.

One more thing. How lame is it that Meredith's half sister meets Derek in the SAME EXACT scenario that Meredith did? Crap, I do hate her already...lol.

The Lexie thing is definitely an interesting twist...I didn't expect that. I agree that the Addison spinoff is probably a bad idea, but really, where else could her storyline go besides breaking off into a new life? I thought it was a pretty good finale, I liked what happened with the wedding. I think I'm going to end up hating the Lexie character though, lol. She seems pretty annoying already. My question is, is TR Knight leaving the show or going to have a super minimal part from now on??

I think that Callie is going to be pregnant and George will be a stay at home dad. The Lexie thing is lame: especially if she hooks up with Derik-they are obviously going to mess with MerDer but they should not do so with Mer's half sister- yawn- everyone would end up hating Der and he is the emotional barameter of the show- it would suck (btw- the way his face lights up whenever he tells Mer he loves her is priceless). Now...f Lexie gets cozy with McSteamy then it might not be so bad. Overall, I think the finale was pretty good, it opened up some windows for new story lines next season- and hopefully some more humor next season. This season was very dark, but I think that it is a phase of the show-as it can be a phase in life. There were a lot of hard lessons this season. Addison should NOT be doing a spin off though. She has a good role on Grey's and carries a good part of the show, they should have kept her on. She is has FINALLY gotten strong (Char development wise) on the show but she is not strong enough for her own show. And we all love the GYN aspect that she represents.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
