And it looks like the fans of Grey’s can breathe again! Unless, for some reason, you were looking forward to a major breakup in the future.

Shonda took to Twitter to calm our nerves: “Where did you all hear this rumor that a couple is splitting up on Grey's? First of all, not true. Second, stop listening to rumors.”

For our blood pressure’s sake, maybe we should listen to Shonda. But the big thing we’re taking away from these 140 characters (or less) is that our favorite couples are safe! Thank goodness! We weren’t sure we could handle a Callie (Sara Ramirez)-Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) split, and we knew we couldn’t handle a Meredith (Ellen Pompeo)-Derek (Patrick Dempsey) split.

Are you happy to hear that the couples of Seattle Grace-Mercy West are safe (at least for now)?

Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, January 10, 2013, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
