Derek you are being such a massive jerk to Meredith on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, not even your perfectly coiffed hair and dreamy blue eyes can get you out of this one!
Derek Sheperd I am so disappointed in you. I gave you the benefit of the doubt after last week’s Grey’s Anatomy episode. I knew you were being awful but I hoped you would redeem yourself this week in a big way. Last week’s “Meredith is a great mother” speech was enough for me but I’m on HLer Denise Warner’s side – last night’s “Meredith is a great doctor” comments were too little, too late. It’s time for a big gesture, and in my opinion, a big apology.
First of all, Meredith sees the grey. You knew this once, your mother even spelled it out for you. I understand you’re a “black and white” type-person but, as you said, the reason you love Meredith is because she sees the grey, and because she loves whole-heartedly and unapologetically. You should know your wife Derek. And it’s completely in Meredith’s character to give Adele the experimental drug. If you didn’t want a predicament like that, you shouldn’t have let a woman whose life was so affected by the disease, join you in the Alzheimer’s trial no matter how hard she begged. In fact, the trial was started out of your personal desire to cure Alzheimer’s in case it afflicts Meredith in the future! This was always personal, so don’t be so shocked that it spun out of control.
Secondly, Meredith should NOT have to stop working on brain surgery. She’s worked hard for her career and switching Adele’s placebo/trial drug has nothing to do with the size of the clamp she uses on an entirely different brain surgery. You should have trusted her in the O.R. and you sure as hell should have clapped for her when she performed her first solo brain surgery. It’s pathetic where your ego has taken you.
If anyone needs to be punished, it is you. Get over yourself. I’m sorry your trial didn’t work out but if the genuine reason you were upset is because Meredith’s actions might have stopped Alzheimer’s from getting cured, then another doctor taking over the trial solves that problem. The trial is continuing without you and if you can get over your precious reputation and actually think about your family, that would be nice.
Stop being a McNightmare and start treating Meredith right! Or else track down McVet because at least he appreciated Meredith.
