Shonda Rhimes allays fans' fears
Executive producer says 'Grey's Anatomy' cast is sticking around
Dr. Meredith Grey and her pals quit on Thursday night's highly-charged installment of "Grey's Anatomy," but that doesn't mean the actors playing those roles are leaving.
"We're not going to see any cast departures," Shonda Rhimes, the showrunner behind the medical drama told THR of the plot twist, in which five doctors resigned from the hospital so they could buy it.
After that shocking plane crash that killed Mark (Eric Dane) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh), the hospital awarded the survivors -- Derek (Patrick Dempsey), Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Callie (Sara Ramirez), Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) -- a settlement of $15 million each, bankrupting the facility.
Now the doctors have decided to save Seattle Grace with that same money and just have to find a partner to help them. But can their plan work? And what about Owen (Kevin McKidd) and the others? How will these resignations affect them?
"You're going to see them feel the burden of what they've done," Rhimes said. "It's not that they weren't right to do it, but there's definitely a sense of resentment that comes from other people because they have this money and the money has now made everything harder for everyone else."
"Grey's Anatomy" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
I think it is safe to say it's time for a change . I loved this show once a long time ago . But this story line is stupid. Get back to what made it fun to watch . Time for more scenes out of the hospital. It is time for Owen to step down . They should have kept Chief Webber. The cast itself is so talented it's time for the writers to utilize those talents. I'm glad ABC has other shows like Castle to watch .This show needs to come back in a major way or I think it would be safe to say it has JUMPED THE SHARK!
Why the thumbs down? Why should Bailey treat the others like crap just because they were in a plane crash?? I usually don't give a flying rat's poop who thumbs down anything, but this doesn't make sense? What do you disagree with? Seriously?????!!!!!!
Yes, Bailey has already started mouthing off and I have been waiting for someone to really tell her off. Resenting these people because of the plane crash they were in is absolutely horrible and disgusting and I wish I could be the one character to get in Bailey's face. She wouldn't open her stupid mouth again.
I love he show except for when the doctors are performing surgery, they are having personal discussions amoung themselves. I wouldn't want a doctor working on me when their full attention is on something other than the patient. Let's be real in this case.
