ABC dropped its latest press release on the virtual table yesterday, revealing that in the next episode of Grey’s Anatomy Derek calls it quits. Some people took this to mean that Patrick Dempsey himself is exiting the show.
Everyone relax … and put down those scalpels. Patrick Dempsey isn’t going anywhere. You know why? Because the day Patrick Dempsey calls it quits for real, the show ends with him. Well, that’s my take anyway.
Regardless of how I feel about it, though, there are no (zero, nada, zippo) rumors about Dempsey wanting to leave the show any time soon. In fact, Kristin at E! Online’s sources confirm that he is “definitely not leaving the show.” And also that he “doesn’t want to leave, and they wouldn’t let him go anyway.”
Breathe. It’s going to be all right.
Would you still tune in if there was no McDreamy, though? Do share. I’m the curious sort.
