Question: Give us the scoop on Grey's Anatomy! Are Meredith and George going to hook up? That would ruin everything!


Answer: Judging by the previews for this Sunday's episode, it sure looks that way. And I'm with you, Sara — this could turn out to be Grey's first serious misstep. Wasn't the Meredith-Derek-Addison-Mark quadrangle complicated enough without adding this new McNerdy wrinkle to the mix? The whole thing feels extremely rushed and, sadly, will be more grist for the anti-Meredith mill. On top of being whiny and pathetic, now she's the selfish slut who broke George's heart. Hopefully, this'll just turn out to be another one of George's fantasies. Please, Shonda Rhimes, let this turn out to be another one of George's fantasies. And if it's not, you've got four days until the next episode airs. That's plenty of time to do some reshoots. (THIS JUST IN: I found out there's a site where Grey's writers blog about each episode. Click here to read scribe Krista Vernoff's defense of the George-Meredith tryst. Fascinating stuff.)
