When a new season begins, we all know there will be an ending as well. And with ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ the roller coaster ride in between is enormous. Series creator Shonda Rhimes has been tweeting some pretty serious hints about what the season finale might hold. Fans got concerned when she tweeted this quote from renowned author Kurt Vonnegut “Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of.”
E! Online reports that favorite on again-off again couple, Mark Sloane (Eric Dane) and Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) are moving toward on again. The promo for episode 8-21, “Moment of Truth” has the two telling each other how they missed one another. Rhimes is quoted as saying the couple is going to continue to move closer to the relationship fans are hoping for
In an interview with TV Guide, Rhimes said the finale really begins with the May 10th episode with “a big case that takes a group of our people out of the hospital. It’s sort of the medical case of their lives.” That theme is repeated in several interviews, all saying the cast will be met with something that really tests their mettle. It’s also the episode where Mer’s and Derek’s dream house is finally unveiled.
There will also be the death of a beloved character, Rhimes told TV Guide. She would give no further hints as to who that might be and Twitter-verse is rampant with ideas.
Dr. Bailey and Ben will continue and she will make some decisions that could change her life forever. Alex will demonstrate how much he’s grown as a human being over the last season and Christina is still dealing with the fact that her work will probably always come before being Owen’s wife.
Rhimes was reluctant to say anything about Callie and Arizona which leads some fans to wonder if the death might involve one or the other of them. And while contract talks with Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey have been settled, mum is the word on just how they’ve been settled. Rhimes admits there are certain key characters that could never be killed off and she further said that the show will be going on for another season. Does that mean Meredith and Derek are safe from the Grim Reaper? I guess southern Illinois fans will just have to keep checking back here and watching the show to find out.
