I don’t know about you guys but I can’t wait for this Thursday’s much hyped about episode of Grey’s Anatomy. But if you’re jones-ing for some Grey’s Anatomy-ness, check out these spoilers on the season finale and a flashback to the past!

Question: Do you know what will happen in the Grey’s Anatomy finale? —Shaz
Unlike last year’s deadly bloodbath of a climax, which had a profound impact on everyone at Seattle Grace, this season’s cliffhanger will focus on three characters in particular. “Meredith, Cristina and Alex are all left in a position that’s surprising,” hints series creator Shonda Rhimes. “I think fans are going to be very surprised about a lot of the things that happen [in the episode]. A lot of things get turned on their head.”

Question: What was up with Grey’s Anatomy inserting an old Der/Mer love scene into the montage at the end of last week’s episode? Did they think we wouldn’t notice? —Katie
First off, as Rhimes is quick to point out, “It was not a love scene, it was a shot.” The boss lady goes on to explain that the original version of the episode was screaming for “another beat with Derek and Meredith at the end” but Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo were not available to shoot the extra footage. “We would’ve had to drag them [back to the set] from places we couldn’t drag them in from to do one shot.” So Rhimes made the decision to splice in the previously used clip. “It’s something we’ve done before,” Rhimes says. “We’ve used the shot of Derek standing on the catwalk from the pilot like 700 times. It was just a shot. I would never recycle an entire scene. [But] I love that the fans are so invested in the show that they noticed. After seven seasons I take that as a true compliment that they got outraged.”
