***Spoiler Warning — But Let's Be Real, You Already Know What Happened***
If you've somehow dodged the water cooler talk of the week, then you may not know what happened on Grey's Anatomy last Thursday.
However, we're pretty sure that most of you are aware that the ABC drama said goodbye to one of its main cast members in the most recent episode, and we're even more sure that a lot of you were upset by it.
And while your anger and petitions are warranted, one of Shonda Rhimes' leading ladies is finally speaking about how the major death is going to effect her role on the show.
"I have always said that what keeps me going is the fans. Knowing we move you and inspire you. There are so many people out there who have suffered tremendous loss and tragedy. Husbands and wives of soldiers, victims of senseless violence, and parents who have lost children. Parents who get up each day and do what feels like is the impossible. So it is for these people and in the spirit of resilience I am honored and excited to tell the story of how Meredith goes on in the face of what feels like the impossible. I hope you will all join me on her journey. With gratitude and respect, Ellen."
It's clear that Ellen has a lot of love for her fans, and we think she's the best person to reach out to everyone who was distraught over Patrick Dempsey's shocking exit.
While we too were pained by McDreamy's demise, we are interested in how the show handles the upsetting
You can see how Ellen's Meredith Grey reacts to the death in a two-hour episode this Thursday at 8/7c on ABC!
