Don't want to be spoiled? Move along to preserve your Grey's Anatomy Season 7 innocence!
According to EW's Michael Ausiello, Derek lands himself in the Seattle slammer by the end of the Season 7 premiere. Sounds like McDreamy is having a far-from-dreamy time recovering from his finale injuries... which really isn't all that shocking. We'd be messed up too if some grieving freak had shot us in the chest!
Question: Your Grey's Anatomy spoiler in last week's AA freaked me out. Derek goes to jail?! Why?! I’m an earthquake survivor, have some compassion. —Fefy
Ausiello: If I had a dime for every time an AA reader played the earthquake card I'd have a, er, dime. Props for the originality. Here's your answer: Derek gets arrested for being a speed addict. "He's doing a lot of speeding—in a car, not with drugs," explains Grey's EP Shonda Rhimes. "He's on an exuberant high, that adrenaline rush that one gets after facing death and surviving. It's something we hadn't explored before—the idea that when something bad happens you go to a place of 'Now I can do anything.' Meredith, however, sees his behavior as dangerous." That's one of two ticking time bombs hanging over the world's first married-via-Post-it-note couple this season. And the other? Two months have passed since Derek's near-death experience, and Mer has yet to tell him about the pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage. Yikes!
