Grey's Anatomy Season 7 Spoilers: Shonda Rhimes Interview!

Was the Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Finale awesome or awesome?! I'm sure you guys have some questions on the season finale and how the events during it will affect next season.. and we've got the answers for you guys straight from showrunner Shonda Rhimes! Check out her interview for the spoilers on season 7!

On Meredith's miscarriage...

Rhimes says that the miscarriage is significant in that "it was about Meredith Grey being truly happy." It also shows how strong she is when she is able to keep working on Owen despite having a miscarriage at the same time. As Rhimes puts it, "If you don’t have that moment you don’t really have the story of Meredith Grey."

It's also significant in that this is when Meredith realizes "how much she wanted to be with Derek, how much she wanted to be his wife, and how much she wanted to have his children."

Rhimes also points out that she has "written herself out of" not wanting Derek and Meredith to produce little McDreamys and little Greys. In fact, this miscarriage is simply "the beginning of the baby story."

On whether Meredith will revert to being dark and twisty...

Rest easy, Grey's fans. Nice, shiny, and happy Meredith is here to stay!

On how next season will start up...

Rhimes hasn't decided on whether next season will start up immediately after the season finale ended or if there will be a time jump.

On Lexie choosing between Mark and Alex...

Rhimes doesn't think that Lexie ultimately chose between the two hunks of her life.. although she does point out that Alex definitely made his decision already.

So yes, Lexie-and-Mark fans, Rhimes is pretty much telling you guys to keep the faith!

On Bailey's new beau, Ben...

Unfortunately, the actor who plays Bailey's new boyfriend, Ben, has been cast in another of Rhimes's shows so he definitely will not be staying at Seattle Grace. Rhimes does, however, hope that there will resolution between these two -- and so do I!

On the Teddy-Owen-Cristina triangle...

During the finale, Owen seemed like he chose Cristina.. but just in case there's any confusion, Rhimes says that Owen DID choose Cristina and the Teddy-Owen-Cristina triangle is officially done and over with!
