Meredith's (Ellen Pompeo) life is finally coming together on Grey's Anatomy Season 8. She and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) have patched up their relationship and they have Zola back. What more could a girl want?

Well, we can think of a couple of things. First, it would be nice for her to settle on a medical speciality. Second, wouldn't it be great to move in to that dream house Derek has been building since forever?

E! stopped by the Grey's set while they were filming Season 8, Episode 15: "Have You Seen Me Lately?", and chatted with Ellen Pompeo about what's in store for her character. So, does she have any info about when these final pieces will fall into place?

Short answer: No. When asked what Mer's specialty will be, Ellen joked, "When I find out I'll let you know, I have no idea. The fans know more than me at this point!" As for the house? "I have no idea what happened to that. It should be built by now. It should be a castle, it should be as big as the castle in Beauty and the Beast by now!"

While this seems like a non-answer, it's interesting that Ellen knows as little as we do. It's possible that Shonda is just keeping hush-hush about these plot points, but we have to wonder if Ellen not knowing more means these questions won't be addressed ASAP.

Of course, we do know that Mer dips her toe back into the Neuro pool soon, so maybe that particular plot advanced since this interview happened.

Ellen did dish about one thing we can definitely look forward to on the big crossover episode: Mer attempting to be the "voice of reason" to Cristina (Sandra Oh) about her troubled marriage to Owen (Kevin McKidd).

Will Cristina listen to reason? We find out tonight!
