"Grey's Anatomy" Shockers: Meredith Will Die And Live, "Denny" Returns As Ghost Or Jack?
FEBRUARY 14, 2007: Derek may have pulled Meredith out of the tub, but will he be the one to save her from the water, too? TV Guide reveals it will be someone else who gets the honor to salvage her life.
In the official writers' blog "Grey Matter" on ABC.com, the series creator Shonda Rhimes reveals she struggled with procrastination when putting together the script for the three-episode ferry-boat fire arc that began with episode "Walk On Water" last week.
The idea was pitched to the network five months before the filming began, but director Rob Corn and the crew began working on the arc last month without a complete script. Some of the scenes were shot as late as last week and post-production on the final arc episode due to air next week is still in progress.
As Kristin of E! revealed - there will be two deaths, one this week and then another one next week, and rumor has it Meredith tomorrow night and her mother the week after. Keep in mind that TV Guide's Michael Ausiello teased today that similarly to CSI Miami, a character may die, but that does not necessarily mean they will not live.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan who played Denny and was supposed to return at a later point this season has already shot his scenes for his upcoming appearance.
Apparently, Morgan will come back as one of Ausiello's humorous scenarios for Denny's return from last week's column. He returns as either a twin, a ghost, a corpse, an alien, or - a man who is not even Denny, but looks like Denny, say a war correspondent named Jack who checks into Seattle Grace to undergo an emergency tonsilectomy.
Kirstin of E! Online has already disclosed it would not be a twin, a flashback or a dream, which leaves us with the ghost theory (as part of a near-death experience) or someone who looks like Denny.
Finally, for those who haven't noticed - Elizabeth Reaser has already joined the cast as the pregnant woman with shattered face who was saved by Alex. His attachment to the woman will intesify in the coming weeks, but not before another tragedy befalls the poor Jane Doe.
