Ellen Pompeo: Meredith Clearly Crossed the Line

at .

In a recent interview, Patrick Dempsey discussed the future of Meredith and Derek on Grey’s Anatomy. At best, he painted a murky picture for the couple moving forward.

Dempsey's character is clearly livid following the revelation of his wife's meddling on Adele's behalf in the clinical trial, and Ellen Pompeo sees it, he has every right to be.

“Listen, what Meredith did clearly crossed a line. Derek has a right to be pissed,” Pompeo tells TV Line's Matt Webb Mitovich. At the same time, that's Meredith to a T.

Mer: Grace Under Pressure

“Derek so often stands on his moral high ground,” she says, while Mer sees things as ... well, Grey. "It’s who Meredith is, and Derek should understand that,” she adds.

That said, where does the couple go from here? While acknowledging that Derek has every right to be upset, is this really a deal-breaker? Pompeo says no way.

“I think Derek should feel wronged for a second,” the actress tells TV Line, “but then he needs to get over it, quick!” Will he? Should he? Sound off with your comments ...
