We love Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd), and not just because he's so darn handsome. Amongst his many other good qualities, he's an avid tweeter who sometimes gives fans an inside look at what's coming up on Grey's Anatomy. How great is that?

Patrick posted this photo of his arm being done up with scars, saying, "In make up," later clarifying that he's getting ready to film Season 9, Episode 12.
