The latest “Grey’s Anatomy” season 12 spoilers revealed that Derek Shepherd aka McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey) will be replaced in Meredith Grey’s (Ellen Pompeo) heart in the coming episodes.
According to Daily Times Gazette, the first few episodes of the series will follow Meredith’s attempt to get her life back together after Derek’s death. The publication reported that most of the coming episodes will focus on Meredith and the sacrifices, as well as adjustments, she have to make now that she is single again.
In an interview with Providence Journal, Pompeo revealed that season 12 will be an interesting time for her character. She shared that viewers can definitely relate to the struggles she have to overcome following the untimely death of a loved one.
“So many people lose their spouses in a myriad of different ways and feel they can’t get up again and to tell the story of how life goes on after. That’s a story worth telling,” she explained.
ABC President Paul Lee also supported “Grey’s Anatomy” series creator Shonda Rhimes’ decision to kill off McDreamy for the sake of the show’s progress. He said that the following episodes would be a turning point for the series. He said that he is proud of how the show helps viewers understand the concept of loss and of moving forward.
It has long been rumored that a new cast member will help Meredith get over the death of her husband. It is still unclear if Pompeo’s character will immediately start dating following the incident but it seems like Rhimes is eager to help fans forget about McDreamy’s tragic accident.
