Interview with Spoilers
*Warning Contains Spoilers*
I was very concerned when I saw the promo and saw Meredith flat on the ground. I had no idea what it could be. Now that this interview has surfaced, and has given some context to it. I’m terrified. This is setting a very serious, dark tone for the second half of the season. We’ve been grieving Derek’s death. Seeing Meredith pushing Perfect Penny, who killed Derek to the breaking point. Now we are going to have to see Meredith have the rug pulled out from under her again. I’m terrified of what this mean.
When Grey’s Anatomy returns for its midseason premiere, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) will be the victim of a violent assault. “Meredith gets attacked by someone you would least expect and it is just as terrifying, shocking and harrowing as it appears,” Kelly McCreary tells EW.
“She’s attacked really brutally, really viciously and in a completely surprising, weird way,” Sarah Drew adds, noting that everyone else is really on the sidelines during the Meredith-centric episode directed by Denzel Washington — which means you won’t find out what Jackson (Jesse Williams) wanted to say to April (Drew) right away.
Obviously, what happens to Meredith will reverberate throughout the hospital, but it will have a big impact on Amelia (Caterina Scorsone). “Amelia takes that really hard,” says Scorsone, whose character was kicked out of the Grey house by Mer in the winter finale. “Amelia always holds herself extremely responsible for the misfortunate of others. In this case especially, she feels somehow responsible, even though she’s really not. She often takes it all very personally when someone she’s close to is hurt. When we come back, Amelia is at a very, very low point.”
The cool thing is that Denzel Washington is directing. I am excited to see this episode, but feeling very nervous about it.
