Spoilers Anonymous In-Depth: 'Grey's Anatomy' May Sweeps

Spoilers AnonymousThis is Spoilers Anonymous In-Depth, a weekly column here at TV Squad where we discuss and give our two cents on recently released spoilers and how they may affect the story lines, shows and fans.

This in-depth version of the column goes hand-in-hand with our weekly spoilers column, in which we supply you with the dirt on some of the more popular shows on the air.

This week, we discuss spoilers recently released for May Sweeps episodes of 'Grey's Anatomy.,' including spoilers for this week's installment.


The May 5 episode will mostly center around Callie and Arizona's wedding. However, ABC reveals that during the episode "Meredith and Derek make a decision that will change their lives forever."

Rumor has it that said life changing decision will involve Meredith and Derek making their Post-It note marriage official so they can start adoption procedures! Don't know about you, but if that rumor is true, I'll be one happy fan.

Meredith may be one of the characters I like least, but even I can admit that it's time she and Derek catch a break and something wonderful happens. If they do end up adopting a baby, it means that Cristina, of all people, will become a godmother and will have to change diapers! Hilarious, no? It will also allow Meredith, Callie, and Bailey to bond over the joys and challenges of motherhood.

A few promotional pictures have shown pictures of Derek and Meredith with one of the African babies. Could it be that the couple tries to adopt one of the orphans Alex has brought over to the hospital?

According to TV Line, the season finale will end with an emotional shootout, and Meredith, Alex and Cristina will all be affected. The competition for Chief Resident will also climax during the episode.

These are not jaw-dropping spoilers since we expect the 'Grey's Anatomy' main characters to be left in a cliffhanger-type situation at the end of the season. Plus, it's a given that after weeks of searching a new Chief Resident will be named.

However, if you take a second to think about that intel, things get more interesting. What emotional event could impact Meredith, Alex and Cristina? Personally, I do not think that one single event will affect all three.

I expect that it will be uncovered that Meredith switched the meds in last week's episode so that Adele would get the active agent. This will get Meredith in deep trouble and the cliffhanger could be that not only she may lose her job at the hospital but that the clinical trial could be stopped because the process was tempered by Meredith.

As for Alex and Cristina, their emotional rollercoaster could be linked -- especially if Alex gets the position of Chief Resident. If he does, Cristina will probably not be a happy camper with Owen which could put their relationship in jeopardy.

Alex's season finale emotional storyline could be linked to one of the African children he brought over. Maybe the money Alex received runs out when one of the kids needs more care than first planned? That could lead to Alex having to make a few not-so-ethical decisions and twist a few arms so to get the kid the help he needs.

What do you forsee happening in the season finale for these three characters? Do you agree with my theories? If not, what are yours? Shares your two cents in comments below!


'Grey's Anatomy' airs Thursdays at 9PM ET on ABC.

I will definitely be watching tongiht - popcorn, soda and all. I would like it if they ended the Izzie sotryline and bring back Burke. I think Christina and Owen are ok, but Burke understood her and was better suited for her. I would like for them to deal with the fallout of him leaving her at the alter and somehow find their way back to each other. Burke could be recast at this point, or just bring back Isiah Washington.

Well, Thursday showed us what is coming up. Owen will go to Derek or to Meredith to see if what Alex said is true. Derek will be furious but he will not divorce Meredith. They will lose their clinical trial but the Chief will not fire Meredith because she made sure Adele got the active drug to help her. He will see she was trying to save Adele. I do think Kipner will end up HIV positive because they made sure to point out the blood spill on her. I would be surprised if she didn't. It will be between her and Alex for the Chief Resident because she is so organized and invented those sheets so that the mistake that she made when she first came to Seattle Grace can't happen again. And as we all saw Christina isn't mad at Owen. At the end of the show she said she was going to be the best Surgeon ever. She would have floundered at it just as Callie did when Bailey took over years ago. No way they will get rid of Bailey. She is too important to the show!

No single event will affect all three. Each one has their own major event. Mer may lose her job and possibly a seperation from Derick. Christina is fine with not being Cheif resident but finds out she is pregnant and does not want a baby. Alex ratted out Meridith to Hunt and feels guilty and Lucy took his job in Africa. Alex loses a friend and the next love of his life.

I love GA since season 5. Mer sustains all story but they are all wonderful. Cristina is amazing and she and Owen are sweet.

I think Izzie and Burke will be back. I wonder if Adele will die because of the switch and Meredith will feel guilt over it and tell Derek who will be upset because she screwed up the trial. As one of the previous poster's wrote, I wonder if Izzie does die and then Alex will get Chief Resident, so it's a double edged sword. I also think Kepner could have HIV since she was exposed to it as an added twist.

I think the thing that affects all 3 of them is that Izzie dies... and as her Husband Alex is notified and tells the other 2... cos Shonda did say earlier in the year that they were going to round off the Izzie-Alex storyline and that it didn't necessarily involve Katherine Heigl returning to the show...

I think Kepner will get Chief Resident, Cristina of course will be mad, Alex is gonna snitch to the FDA, and Meridith will possibly lose her job considering the drug was given to Adele so the Chief may step in and take the flak for that action. On this show anything can happen. But I agree, if something happened to bailey it would affect them but that would affect everyone also.

Can't wait to find out! Looking for to wedding and all that mess that will raise. Good call on possible emotional impacts but I think the producers are hiding something up their sleeves.

If anything happened to Bailey, then it would affect more than Alex, Mere, and Christina.

I have a feeling you're right about the Meredith theory...which definitely worries me, but at the same time...she is essentially the star of the show so if she lost her job, I don't know how they would play that angle. UNLESS, they do adopt the African baby and she becomes stay-at-home-mom.

Luckily we only have one more day til the next episode!
