Grey's Anatomy Scoop: Which Couple's Road is Dark?

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice return with all-new episodes tonight, and the creator of both ABC medical dramas, Shonda Rhimes, is making the media rounds to prepare us for the developments to come.

Let's get right to it, shall we?

On the Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) front, this little tidbit should make fans smile: "You will see the dream house before the end of the season," Shonda teased to E! Online.

"Although, we're getting closer and closer to the end of the season and now I'm not totally 100 percent sure how the season's going to end because contract negotiations haven't been finished. So I will say I'm planning on it and I am extremely hopeful we're going to see the dream house before the end of the season."

Faced With a Crisis

On a less optimistic note, regarding Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd): "It's going to get darker, people! It's going to get darker before it gets better," Shonda reveals.

"Cristina has gone through tremendous personal growth," Shonda explains. "For me, I was really interested in exploring [how] Cristina is, first and foremost before she's anything else, a surgeon and she's a person of gift."

"When that happens in men, everyone accepts it. When it happens in women, it's a very different thing."

"I'm really interested in exploring that with that character because there's something really wonderful about this idea of an extraordinarily talented, gifted woman who is unapologetic about her desire not to have children and to have things sort of go her way and what that means when you're in a relationship. It's very complex."

Turning our attention to Private Practice's Sam (Taye Diggs) and Addison (Kate Walsh): "Things get very interesting. Jake has feelings for Addison, that's very clear, and Addison might have some feelings for Jake."

"But, I think that Sam is always still very close to her heart and their problems don't seem so insurmountable to me. I really feel like Addison deserves some happiness and I'd like to see her get it."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."


MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
