So, what's coming up for McDreamy and his less-than-dreamy hand? We've rounded up the juiciest spoilers about the former surgical superstar right here.

Can his hand be fixed? E! reports "it will take quite a few surgeries and one very ballsy idea" to fix Derek's hand — and that idea might not work. So while recovery is still a possibility, you shouldn't count on it.

Why is he back in a conference room? This sneak peek photo seems to show Derek and Callie (Sara Ramirez) in another nice conference room. Is it about the plane crash settlement? Derek's hand? Something else?

Family time. Ready to meet more of Derek sisters? Neve Campbell has been cast as yet another of Derek's four sisters. We don't know which one, but we do know she has a multi-episode arc. Fun!

Can't forget MerDer. Shonda Rhimes' favorite MerDer moment of the season so far happens at the end of Season 9, Episode 7. They've already had a number of nice moments this year, but it sounds like there's more goodness to come. Oh, and we'll even see a bit of him in the upcoming  Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and  Cristina  (Sandra Oh) focused Season 9, Episode 5: “Beautiful Doom.”
