Special Grey's Anatomy Episode to Ask: What If...

by at . Comments

What if Derek and Addison never broke up? What if Ellis Grey never suffered from Alzheimer's? What if at least one victim from the Seattle Grace shooting survived?

Grey's Anatomy will ask all these questions and more in a special February Sweeps episode that will take place in an alternate reality, according to Michael Ausiello, one that brings back Kate Walsh and other series alums.

Remember when...

Everyone will be "affected,” by this hypothetical dimension says an insider, though no word has been given about how or why these what-if scenarios come about.

What do you think, fans? Is this a cool, fun idea? Or - like many felt about the ill-fated musical episode - is it a desperate ratings stunt for a show whose numbers are slipping? Sound off now!

Will the MerDer interaction that occured in the exam room have taken place, and how could Der have declared he had been in love with Mer forever if Der has stayed with Ad?
It'll be interesting to see if Der has built Ad a house in the woods and is paying more attention to his wife than he did prior to his moving to Seattle. I hope Der regrets his choice of being with Ad.
I do hope we see that Mer has moved on from her disappointment of loosing Der (in this dream). I'm not sure if Mer wasn't dark and twisty that she'd be such great friends with Cris. I could see there being more competition between them as residents for surgeries etc
Big foot would have to be the returning formerly shot doc cos if the elevator had been working he could have been saved. But I disliked him and I don't want him taking precious screen time from characters I prefer.

This episode is going to be a dreamscape, from Meredith's point of view, or in Meredith's case it could be her worse nightmare. Addison and Derek are still together. The good news is Kate Burton who played Meredith's mother Ellis will be back too, along with Addison played by Kate Walsh. It will be called "If/Then".

Sorry "If/Then"

Smileyglen

This episode will titled "If/That".

I hope it's Charles Percy that comes back and not Reed Adamson. Name me the other victims who died apart from those two??? Ellis minus Alzheimer's, would she still treat Meredith the same, she was career focused before the early onset Alzheimer's, would she work with Meredith? Would she have been the first female Chief of Surgery? If Derek and Addison didn't break up, would they have had children? So we would of still had the merger because one of the victims of the shooting comes back. 30 days til the next new episode of Grey's Anatomy.
