Oh no. This is bad. Grey's Anatomy fans, it's time to prepare for a loss.
William Keck, of TV Guide's Keck's Exclusives, has an inside line to Shonda Rhimes; he's already chatted with her about the finale and knows all sorts of spoilers. Therefore, we trust him when he tweets about Grey's, even when we want to believe he's wrong.
Recently, a fan asked him if he knows which cast members will return for Season 9, and he replied, "at least ONE definitely won't." He later added, "[Shonda Rhimes] didn't specify who or that it was someone whose contract was up."
So, someone is definitely leaving, but it's not necessarily one of the originals. Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April (Sarah Drew) are also finishing up their time as residents, so it's possible one of them decides to go to a different hospital. And, of course, there's always the more tragic option: the finale is supposed to be sad, after all.
Who do you think will leave the show? Take a guess in the comments below.
