If you have not watched the April 23 episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” ‘How to Save a Life’ stop reading.
Rest in Peace Derek Shepard.
I could not bring myself to write this article about the recent death on “Grey’s Anatomy,” which killed off a main character Derek Shepard, McDreamy himself.
“It’s been a remarkable ride,” the Patrick Dempsey told TVLine. “The worldwide impact has been extraordinary. It is incredible how devoted and passionate the fans are and I will forever be grateful and humbled by the experience.”
Series creator Shonda Rhimes also released a statement:
Derek Shepherd is and will always be an incredibly important character — for Meredith, for me and for the fans. I absolutely never imagined saying goodbye to our ‘McDreamy.’ Patrick Dempsey’s performance shaped Derek in a way that I know we both hope became a meaningful example — happy, sad, romantic, painful and always true — of what young women should demand from modern love. His loss will be felt by all. Now, Meredith and the entire ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ family are about to enter uncharted territory as we head into this new chapter of her life. The possibilities for what may come are endless. As Ellis Grey would say: the carousel never stops turning.
He was a husband to many, not only Meredith. R.I.P., McDreamy.
