WARNING: This post contains spoilers for the current season of Gray’s Anatomy.
Anyone who watched last week Gray̵
Derek appeared only after Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) fainted in the hospital parking lot – and during the appearance of The Ellen DeGeneres Show (via Us Weekly) Dempsey confirmed that the dream-like sequence was the result of Meredith concluding COVID-19.
“I was like, what a great opportunity for people and how great it would be for the fans to really see everyone get together in this weird way,” he said.
“And [showrunner Krista Vernoff] I came up with this concept where I would come and visit [Meredith] in her COVID dream. “
Are we waiting for what? That’s right: Dempsey just confirmed what you might suspect. Meredith Gray has COVID-19.
Although Dempsey has already spilled the beans on what is actually happening with his return, he is not as liberated in how many more episodes he will appear: “This is a good question. I’m not sure how much [episodes]. I know I’ve been all season. He returns as a guest. “
We can only guess what happens next – but if you are On Gray Stan, you’re used to it.
