If Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) parenting arrangement on Grey’s Anatomy — Mer kicks serious butt at work this year while Derek pulls back from the job so he can hang with the kiddos and pick up the slack at home — seems too good to be true, that’s because it may very well be. We always know when a certain couple on the show seems happy, that means a storm’s a-comin’.
And in our case, it’s a very patriotic storm: The POTUS himself has called upon Derek to work on a crazy important brain mapping project, and while we’re still waiting to find out Derek’s final answer, we can’t see a world where he turns that chance down.
We’ve known that, if Derek says yes, Meredith’s probably not going to react well — but we had no idea it’d throw the rest of the hospital into turmoil, too. In a recent chat with Glamour, Sarah Drew (April Kepner) revealed that Derek’s presidential phone call is going to cause a major ripple effect.
“I can tell you that everything kind of gets turned upside down emotionally because of the President’s phone call to Derek,” Sarah revealed. “All kinds of things get messed up because of that phone call.”
Like Meredith’s 3D printing project, perhaps? Only five weeks left before we find out for sure!
What do you think happens in the hospital after everyone catches wind of Derek’s phone call? Let us know below!
