In the midseason premiere, airing Feb. 11 and directed by two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington, “Meredith is attacked, and it is as terrifying and as shocking as you would expect for it to be,” Kelly McCreary, who plays Mer’s half-sister Maggie shared on Saturday night at a Television Critics Association press tour soiree. “Get ready to have your guts feel like they’re coming out of you, because it is truly harrowing.”
Grey’s Anatomy Contract Extension: ‘I Don’t See Any Reason to Run Away’
Of course, over the ABC serial’s 11-1/2 seasons, Meredith has “had a lot of brushes with death,” McCreary acknowledges. “But this time is different because, as Sarah Drew has actually pointed out, in other instances where Meredith came close to death, she has had a little bit of control over the situation. She could save herself in some way, or make a choice that might help herself. But in this case she’s physically impaired in a way that she has not been before.
All told, McCreary previews, “As bad as things have gotten for Meredith, this is bad in a whole different way.”
fans, are you sufficiently braced for Meredith Grey’s latest, dire ordeal?
How much torture can Meredith go through? I mean there’s “dark and twisty” and then there’s over the top. It reached that level after the pain crash and it keeps on pushing.
Enough already of putting mer in danger it’s bonkers. Please could we not just have her grapple with how dating works as a successful single woman bringing up her kids while recently widowed isn’t that not enough? For some that would be a more interesting story something many people could relate to.
Exactly, that sounds like a nice storyline for her. It’s been a while since Derek in the timeline of the show, she can date, while being a kickass mother and a doctor. But more focus on the mother and doctor psrt though!
This is drama television. People want the drama, not boring everyday life stuff. Meredith gets attacked or Meredith goes on a date. Which storyline will get more ratings? That’s what it comes down to in the end.
It continues to fascinate me how much pain she’s been through
Her bigger ordeal is that hairdo in the picture. Can’t the woman have nice hair like the older seasons??
That’s literally what I thought the second I saw this picture!
Seriously is there any other character in tv that has suffered as much tragedy as Meredith?
What else can they put her through? Let her be happy, at least for a while… (that means more than 5 eps)
Can we get rid of kelly mccreary and her lispy, whiny character? That is all i ask.
That’s the first thing I said when I found out she was playing a lead as Merediths sister! Like, is she the best mixed girl they could find? Some people find lisps cute and endearing…I just want snip the tip of the tongue in hopes it will help. Ugh!!!
Bbbooooooorrrrriiiinnnnnggggggg!!! This need for catastrophe every season is becoming increasingly stale. There are enough characters, new and old, where story arcs can occur without someone going through the most ridiculous events. I get it that bad things happen to people every day but the amount of things/events Meredith has been through on her own isn’t even believable anymore! Shonda should have started wrapping the show up the minute Patrick decided to leave. Unless she can get Sandra and Katherine back for some serious mental mind f&*%kery, this show is about done for.
If we get to see the ghost of Derek talking to Meredith in this episode then fine, otherwise enough is enough.
Let’ see Meredith was drowned, vivisected, and almost blown to smithereens by a mortar shell; but, this is supposed to be worse. Not seeing it being worse than that unless they set her on fire. Seriously, this has to be the worst hospital ever. as they destroyed surgery, destroyed the ER, hurt people having sex in an ambulance, blew up a bus in the driveway and let a homicidal mad man run around the hospital shooting people. they even electrocuted poor Richard. As it is Maggie talking I would stick with my first idea on the subject, she’ll be shot through the heart and Nathan will have to operate as Maggie will not be allowed.That is not that dramatic unless they shoot Nathan too.
Oh My… maybe they’re trying to kill Merideth Grey already…. It’s just awful that whenever there would be a tragedy happening it does happen to the main cast and it’s truly awful.
What do you expect. Why do you think they call them “Soap Operas?” It keeps the people coming back.
So guess we aren’t going to cut back to Jo and Jackson’s answers, in favour of yet another Meredith disaster. God sakes, she used to be my favourite character, however now that people like Jo/Alex are FINALLY getting the focus they deserve- it’s yet again tossed to the side. Come on, they were in the middle of cliffhangers, they deserve to be given screen time for the fall out of it!! I will be SO disappointed if we don’t see Jo’s answer from her, but Alex telling Meredith.
