"Right now, if you were in the writers' room, you would probably tell me that the theme is 'Meredith,'" she reveals. "Because all I keep saying is, 'The show is just about Meredith Grey [Ellen Pompeo]!'"
Yes, Season 10 may have been the Year of Yang, but Season 11 will show fifty shades of Grey.
"It's really a Meredith-centric season," the TV mastermind continues. "She's lost her 'person,' her [half-]sister has shown up, her husband is chafing to go someplace else…"
In case you missed the Season 10 finale — and for shame, if so! — Mer's entire life was turned upside-down in the span of one episode.
Futhermore, Mer only knows about two of those life-changers. We don't know if Maggie knows that she and Meredith are related — i.e. if she knows there's another Grey at the hospital — but we know Meredith doesn't.
Ellen Pompeo, sounds like a 2015 Lead Actress Emmy is yours to lose!
