Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 Spoilers: What’s Ahead For Meredith and Derek?
For the first time in Grey’s Anatomy history, Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd were the happiest couple on the show in the Season 9 finale. Though it was a rough and emotional journey (when isn’t it?) and Mer almost died, they ended the episode with their family gathered around, smiling as they took turns holding newborn son, Bailey. Our hearts swelled, we may have cried a little, and then we braced ourselves for things to be less blissful next season.
It’s not that we’re cynics here — we just know that creator Shonda Rhimes doesn’t let anyone stay happy for too long. We understand; things wouldn’t be as exciting and dramatic if people were happy all the time, but we sincerely hope MerDer doesn’t go through any big problems in Season 10. Thankfully, our minds can be slightly at ease after looking through the spoilers surrounding the OG couple. Read on to see what’s happening for Meredith and Derek in Season 10, then hit the comments with what you want to see for them. (We’ve already done that if you want to take a gander, too.)
Tension and unhappiness ahead. First off, why? We just want MerDer to be happy. However, Patrick notes that “they can’t just be happy” and there will be some tension due to family vs. career ahead. That said, Shonda has admitted she'd "have to go into hiding" if she broke MerDer up, so we have a feeling the relationship is safe.
