On whether “art will imitate life” and Meredith will get pregnant…

Shonda Rhimes and Ellen Pompeo both don’t think it’s at all Meredith-like get pregnant and have a kid. Pompeo even pointed out that Meredith will always be a “Grey” and never a “Shepherd.”

On Meredith’s new “job” as the Chief’s wife…

Shonda Rhimes describes Meredith’s tasks as the Chief’s wife: “There’s some smiling and putting on dresses that she is not ready for,” which is sure to cause tension between the newlyweds. Dempsey also adds that Meredith doesn’t take lightly to all things “normal” and that she will have to attend “hospital fundraisers,” which she, of course, doesn’t want to.

We’ll see firsthand how Ellis Grey treated her 4 year old Meredith and how Ellis’s affair with Richard affected Meredith.

On how Meredith has changed over the years…

Before, Meredith would solve problems with tequila and dancing. Now, Rhimes says that “her maternal instincts are coming from a more grown up place.”

On how much longer Ellen Pompeo will play Meredith…

Pompeo only has 2 years left on her contract to play Meredith and according to the actress, she is not planning on extending her contract. She thinks that she’ll have explored all aspects of Meredith Grey and that she’d “like to give people a break from me.”
