Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 Finale: Ellen Pompeo Set to Live Tweet

The Grey’s Anatomy finale is almost here, and we couldn’t be more excited (and scared). Season 9, Episode 24: “Perfect Storm” is sure to be dramatic, with not only an actual superstorm, but a few emotional ones, too.

We’ve rounded up a slew of spoilers and sneak peeks in preparation for the insane hour, and have even speculated whose life will hang in the balance (so far, we’re most nervous about Meredith and her baby, Derek, Callie, and Arizona), but none of that includes the huge news creator Shonda Rhimes just revealed!

Are you sitting down? Because Meredith Grey will be... live tweeting!

Well, her portrayer, Ellen Pompeo, will actually be doing the honors, but still, very exciting. Shonda tweeted out the news earlier, writing:

Not only is this exciting because Mer has such an integral part of the finale and Ellen can share behind-the-scenes moments, but also because she’s one of the best tweeters ever. It’s a strange compliment to give, but we’re always entertained — especially by her use of hashtags. Case in point: when she tried to rip Jesse Williams’s shirt off.

Are you excited for Ellen’s live tweets during the finale? Sound off below!

The Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 finale airs tonight, Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
