Grey's Anatomy returned in full force this week, finally delivering a high-stakes sequence we were equally anticipating and dreading. For weeks, the show has teased the life-threatening attack of Meredith Grey, who gets viciously beaten by a confused patient. Now we're used to unbearably sad moments on Grey's, but this time around, we were just plain scared. When you take a step back from all of the edge-of-your-seat fretting and stress-eating, though, it's pretty clear that the midseason premiere embodies everything we love about the show. Read on to find out why, and then remember all the times Grey's spoke to your soul. »

If after last night's horrifying attack on Grey's Anatomy, you're concerned that the tragedies that continually befall Meredith Grey are beginning to border on the unbelievable, Ellen Pompeo has something she'd like to say to you. Speaking with the show's executive producer Betsy Beers on her podcast Shondaland Revealed, Pompeo offered up an interesting defense for the odds-defying amount of calamity that's made it's way to her poor character. "You don't think you're going to have to come up with 12 years of devastating things happening to one character," she admitted. "However, I look at the news every day and read newspapers online, and people have had some pretty »
Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton went head-to-head in another Democratic debate on PBS and CNN last night, but the real news on Thursday's primetime was the return of Shondaland from its winter break. With a jarring Grey's Anatomy (2.4/8), Scandal (2.1/7) and a heart-stopping How To Get Away With Murder (1.8/6) back, ABC tied with a steady American Idol (2.1/7) on Fox for the top stop among adults 18-49 for the night. That's a 90% overall jump for ABC over the… »
But...why? Why did that need to happen? What was the point of that? Why is Grey's Anatomy trying to break Meredith?! We already called for an end to her suffering earlier today, but now we've actually seen the episode, and now we see that her attack was just as senseless as we feared it would be. It was also just as emotionally effective as we knew it would be, because this is Grey's Anatomy, and this what they do. Let's break it down: Mer was alone, treating a patient who didn't seem dangerous. He got out of his bed, confused and disoriented, and when Meredith tried to get him to lay back down, he started punching. We didn't see most of the attack, but we did see »
It's coming. We know it's coming, and there's nothing we can do about it. ABC's given us about a month to prepare for it, as if anyone can ever really prepare for this sort of thing, but tonight's the night: Meredith Grey is getting attacked on Grey's Anatomy. Once again, Shonda Rhimes is putting the life of her most cherished creation on the line in the quest for high drama—but 12 season in, this well has almost run dry. With all due respect, Ms. Rhimes, please consider this your intervention. Poor Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) has been through enough. When you look at the totality of the trauma she's experience since beginning her career in surgery at Seattle Grace, »
Well, that didn't last long. Remember when viewers were promised that this season of Grey's Anatomy would set aside the angst and torment and feature a lighter, less serious, more humorous tone? Me too. But I knew better than to believe those promises. Have twelve years of watching this show taught me nothing? "The Sound of Silence," directed by Denzel Washington, showcased the excellent Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey faced yet another life-changing event. Yet, though the episode was well done, I couldn't help but wonder: was that really necessary?

Grey's Anatomy returns Thursday night! So what can fans expect from the winter premiere? "We've got some serious stuff going on with [Dr. Meredith Grey] right when we get back," Jerrika Hinton, who plays Dr. Stephanie Edwards, told People.

When you're planning to have your main character horrifically attacked, you want the best in the business working on the episode. Case in point? Shonda Rhimes enlisting Denzel Washington to direct this week's sure-to-be traumatic midseason premiere of Grey's Anatomy. The episode, which sees the doctors of Grey-Sloan Memorial spring into action after Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) is brutalized by a patient, is a step above anything the show's attempted before, star Jason George tells E! News—and Washington's presence only elevated things further. "This is one where at the table-read, everyone's jaw was on the floor. The writers went beyond, I mean, truly—it's different than what »
While the Writers Guild of America Award nominations for television this year include twice as many first-time nominees as last year (be they freshman series or returning shows), two high-profile new series are conspicuously absent. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Oscar Predictions After being all but snubbed by the Emmys, “Empire” was shut out by the guild. It had been expected to reap a bid in the Best New Series category, which historically has embraced prime-time serial dramas. “Grey's Anatomy” and “Ugly Betty” won this award in 2005 and 2006 respectivley while “Nashville” was a nominee three years ago. The other surprising omission in the New Series category is “Master of None.” While it is tempting to explain this snub by the fact that the laffer did not start streaming on Netflix until Nov. 4 (i.e., eight days after WGA voting opened on O...' »

"This is not a show that is ending because anybody hates each other.
