If there was any doubt in your mind that Grey’s Anatomy’s Derek (Patrick Dempsey) is going to say yes to the president’s job offer on this week’s new episode (finally!), new casting sides released for Episode 20 will convince you.

In the sides posted by Spoiler TV, Dr. Smith — who, to us, is obviously Derek — is working with patients in what’s called his BMI office… or what we think stands for Brain Mapping Institute. “Dr. Smith” sees a patient who’s got a pair of kitchen shears sticking out of his head, and yet is still able to speak — yikes! Later, he operates on a risky patient who has a crush on him (and seriously, who wouldn’t?) and thankfully, the surgery is successful.

Are we alone in thinking that the BMI office is the new possibly permanent set that involves a major plot point that we heard about earlier in the hiatus? We know that the new set will impact one of show’s most central couples, so it would make sense that a new office for Derek could stick around as a location for a lot of scenes between him and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). Plus, if the brain mapping project is as awesome as the POTUS obviously thinks it is, why wouldn’t Derek continue into the future?

So if we’re right about this, we know Derek will definitely be seen working with his brain mapping patients well into the second half of Season 10… so if Meredith’s mad about his broken promise, we’d better cross our fingers and hope their fight doesn’t last too long.

Do you think Dr. Smith is Derek, or do you have another doctor in mind? Let us know what you’re thinking below!
