Ellen Pompeo & Patrick Dempsey Go 'Greys'

Ellen Pompeo & Patrick Dempsey Go 'Greys'

Ellen Pompeo and co-star Patrick Dempsy walk around on the set of Grey’s Anatomy on a rainy afternoon on Sunday (January 17) in Los Angeles.

Patrick recently shared about the developments between his character and Ellen‘s character with USA Today. “I think this is probably the first season where I’m really happy with the direction the character’s going,” he says. “We couldn’t get past the ‘Are they together? Are they not?’ for so long. In episodic TV, that’s sometimes the cross you bear.”

“I couldn’t find any other way to look longingly at Meredith [Ellen Pompeo],” he says. “It’s nice to be moving forward. It was fun initially — like for the first few years. Then we kind of got stuck in that and I think everybody got frustrated.”

    Poor Patrick & Ellen! Season 4 & 5 were awful… what with the back to s*x only, then the plant (also known as stupid plot device aka Rose), and then in season 5, they had like two minutes per episodes!
    Season 6 seems much better for their characters. PD always wanted them to move forward, get married (don’t let me started on how Shonda screwed that up!) and Meredith dealing with being pregnant, having a baby and being a doctor.. All those were ideas he talked about but that took YEARS to happen…

    She looks amazing post-baaby. Her fuller figure, which is still very thin, looks amazing.

    I stopped watching Grey’s at the beginning of last season, after they butchered the Mer/Der storyline and most of the other ones, too. Glad to hear Patrick at least thinks this season is better for his and Meredith’s character- this might inspire me to watch again, because I shipped them for so long and all Shonda did was eff it up time and time again…

    valerie Says:

    I think Grey’s is finally coming back. Only a good mer/der story line and decent screen time will keep people watching. Their ratings are coming
    back but there is always the danger that Shonda will eff it up again. She
    just doesn’t get it that tne vast majority of fans are PD & EP shippers.
