It’s been a month since we last saw our Grey’s Anatomy docs, but how could we forget about Derek (Patrick Dempsey) and his potentially life-changing phone call from POTUS himself? If Derek decides to take him up on his brain mapping job offer, his surgical career will totally explode — and so, we fear, will his arrangement with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) that allows her to work while he takes care of McBabies.

One question that’s been on our mind since the midseason finale: When will we get to meet the president? Whether he’s Barack Obama or Scandals Fitz Grant or a totally new fictional dude dreamed up especially for Grey’s, we’re interested.

But we might just have to get to know him via Derek’s communication with him, because it sounds like we won’t get to meet him anytime soon. “He will remain an off-camera presence for the foreseeable future,” reports TVLine’s Michael Ausiello.

Rats. We totally saw the potential for a Grey’s/Scandal crossover ep, but now that doesn’t seem so likely.

But maybe this means Derek doesn’t take the president up on his offer? Possible, even though we can’t see a world where anyone could say no to a personal request from the head of the country, especially where major, history-making advancements in medicine are concerned.

Do you think Derek will take the job? Let us know what you think below!
