Grey's Anatomy’s Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) has always been a ladies man. With that hair and that smile, how could he not be? But now that he’s married, why is he surrounded by women in an upcoming episode?

Earlier today, Patrick tweeted, “Working with Ellen [Pompeo] Sara [Ramirez] and Jessica [Capshaw] all day , ep 915”

Derek and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) having scenes together is not surprising, seeing as how they’re married and all. And considering that Derek and Callie (Sara Ramirez) are slowly becoming besties, we’re not shocked that they're getting a lot of screen time, either. And, of course, Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) is married to Callie. Perhaps they’re going on a double date?

Or, more realistically, here are some other options: They’re all working together on a case; they’re helping Derek with his hand; they’re dealing with something plane crash related. After all, other than Cristina (Sandra Oh), these are the four sitting in on lawsuit meetings. Could something happen with the lawsuit in Episode 15 that doesn’t involve Cristina (or that she doesn’t want to be involved with)?
