5 Things To Know About 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 11 Finale
I suppose the most shocking thing about this season was Derek’s death. And will forever be marked as the season Derek Shepherd kicked the bucket. Which is why there were no shocking explosions, earthquakes or shootings in the season finale episode “You’re My Home.” Instead, we got an hour mostly focused on the case of the week and Grey-Sloan couples making up and breaking up. Here are five things you need to know about “Grey’s Anatomy’s” season 11 finale.

1. Grey-Sloan Docs Pull Off the Impossible (…Yes, Again!)

Picking up from where we left off, April is still standing atop a flatbed tru...

These 'Grey's Anatomy' Romances Never Had A Chance

The 7 Most Doomed Romances On 'Grey's Anatomy'
They’re never, ever, ever getting back together. I’m talking about all the sunk relationships on “Grey’s Anatomy,” we’ve ranted about, cried over and cursed Shonda Rhimes’ poisoned pen for. Never was there a tale of woe than the love lives of docs at Grey-Sloan. Sorry, Shakespeare; they’ve got Romeo and Julie beat by 11 seasons.

Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey)

No one is safe in Shondaland, including Mer and Der. We watched their twisty romance turn from a one night stand to a sappy family-themed Folger’s commercial. Yet, no amount of candle houses, Post-i...

'Grey's Anatomy' Sets Up Finale: 10 Shocking Moments From 'Time Stop'

May 8th, 2015 9:51am EDT
10 Shocking Moments  From 'Time Stop' Leading Up To 'Grey's Anat
Meredith Grey is officially back in scrubs. According to the interim chief—Webber—a year-long break is more than enough time for Grey to get back in the saddle, following Derek’s death. Good thing since Grey Sloan is facing yet another massive trauma. A major commuter tunnel collapsed resulting in 13 deaths and a handful survivors, including a woman in labor, her fiancé and a high school kid. “Time Stops” is the penultimate episode before the season finale and all the pieces are in place for a heart-wrenching end to Season 11.

'Grey’s Anatomy': What Are The Flashing Lights Outside Of Meredith’s Door?

April 17th, 2015 9:34am EDT
'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap: Derek Is Found?
“Where is Derek?”

With the blue-eyed resident he locked lips with in D.C.? Nope. Based on next week’s promo, for a non-singing “How to Save a Life” episode, he’s speeding down the highway…until he witnesses a car accident. Being McDreamy he stops to save lives.

But, why are there emergency flashing lights outside of Meredith’s door at the end of this week’s episode? Did Derek get hurt in the crossfire? OMG, Was he sacrificed? Hence, the how to save a life theme. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Let’s stick to what we do know: Webber likes to jam to ‘70s girl group Musique’s “In the Bush”...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Derek Is MIA

April 10th, 2015 9:10am EDT
'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap 'Crazy Love': Where In The World Is Derek
Shonda Rhimes swapped the ‘Thank God it’s Thursday’ tagline with ‘Throw Back Thursday’ by re-airing the very first Grey’s episode in primetime. Looking back on the pilot it’s wild to think Meredith and Derek got their roller coaster romance started with a one night stand. Fast forward 10 years later and they still keep the on call rooms steamy.

The “Crazy Love” episode starts with Mer and Der getting in some a.m. sex before he jets out to D.C. to hand in his resignation letter and government issued phone. Peace out, Obama. The Shepherds are at the height of their manic morning routine when...

Are You Missing 'Empire' Yet? Here's Some Cookie Lyon Jabs To Fill The Void

April 5th, 2015 4:03pm EDT
10 Of Cookie Lyon's Most Bruising Verbal Jabs On 'Empire'
She’s one tough Cookie! No one can deliver a gut punch—physical or verbal—like Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson). Her verbal knockouts are as noteworthy as Floyd Mayweather’s fists. And no one is safe, especially Boo Boo Kitty. Below are 10 of Cookie’s most bruising verbal jabs.

Don’t Hush the Cookie Monster

Cookie’s grand entrance into the Empire boardroom nearly gets rebuffed by Lucious’ henchman Vernon.

Vernon: “Good to see you, Cookie…”

Cookie: “—Vernon, kiss my black ass.”

When shuttled into Lucious’ corner office, Cookie’s still not willing to back down:

Cookie: “You’re messing wit...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Has Derek's Cheating History Repeated Itself

March 20th, 2015 9:51am EDT
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap: Derek Returns A Cheater
If you’re looking for a definite confirmation that Derek has a D.C. side chick—Meredith already paints a descriptive snapshot of her—we might just get it.

But not in “Don’t Dream It’s Over” because as much as you can see a dress is blue and black, some people will view it as brown and white. In other words, things are never what they seem to be, even when it looks like they are. Including a mystery woman playing secretary on Derek’s phone. Yet, to Meredith it’s abundantly clear: he’s cheating. Her theory: “when you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras. It means that the most obvious an...

The 'Empire' Finale Delivered With A Punch And Then Some!

March 19th, 2015 10:34am EDT
'Empire' Season 1 Finale Recap: Long Live The New Lyon King
A girl fight, major character death and a Lyon gets caged. “Empire” writers pulled out all the tropes for the season finale. And not one sudsy scene disappointed. But you will be if you’re trying to avoid spoilers. So, consider this fair warning. Do not read beyond this point if “Empire” is still on your must-watch TV list.

Now that it’s just us. Let’s dive into “Die But Once” episode. Lucious (Terrence Howard) is tinkering on his piano until his ALS flare-up has him seeing double. As if that’s not enough to tap down, Becky (Gabourey Sidibe) comes bursting into his office with a to-do list...

'Empire' Season 2 Wish List

March 18th, 2015 2:01pm EDT
Empire - 'Die But Once/Who I Am' Season Finale
It’s nearly a wrap on “Empire’s” freshman season and as difficult as it is to bid these characters adieu (Cookie, don’t go.) at least we know they’ll be back for a second season. All the more reason to get our bids in for what we want to see next. Lee Daniels, executive producer, teased media mogul Oprah Winfrey and Oscar winning performer Common will make appearances in season two. But all other talk about the sophomore season has been as secretive as Cookie and Malcolm’s love affair. Mainly because it’s in the writing stages. Let’s see if the writers will be keen on these ideas.

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap 'I Feel The Earth Move'—The Shakeup
Now that the Grey’s crew has yet another innovatively historic surgery behind them (Herman is happily on the mend, reports Arizona) it’s time to get back to our weekly dose of traumas at Grey Sloan Memorial.

Meredith’s Lucky Streak

Meredith kicks off the “I Feel the Earth Move” episode in the O.R. Alex calls her out for outpatient treatment on his patients. So not only is she using her own work to avoid visiting Derek, but she’s also stealing Alex’s patients. Mer changes the subject by asking him, “Is Jo stalking her?” Yes, she is because she got wind of her surgery streak. Meredith has n...
