‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 17 Breathtaking Twist, McDreamy’s Return, Patrick Dempsey

This post contains spoilers for the Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 premiere.

Uh, did that really happen? Thursday evening, Grey’s Anatomy back for its Season 17 premiere, whose promo clips promised to both tackle the COVID-19 pandemic and leave us breathless. Well, it worked, because at the end of the episode we’re up against none other than McDreamy himself, Patrick Dempsey.

The circumstances leading up to Derek Shepherd’s return are somewhat distressing: Cormac Hayes finds his Meredith collapsed in Gray Sloan’s parking lot. We see Meredith in a dream on the beach, looking at the love of her life. We’ll have to wait until next week to find out more about his condition.

Dempsey’s return is more than a little surprising. He left the series in 2015, just a year after extending his Grey’s two year contract. Explaining his delisting to Weekly entertainment at the time, the actor said, “it just evolved. It just happened. It was really something surprising that happened, and it happened naturally. Which was pretty good. I like the way it all went. ”

It all happened quickly, he said, but he wasn’t surprised. “It was just a natural progression with the way the story unfolded. It was like, Okay! It was obviously the right time.
