Every 'Grey's Anatomy' fan loved Patrick Dempsey's character Derek Shepherd because he used to really be that "McDreamy" factor of the show. Pompeo's character Meredith Grey and Patrick Dempsey's character Derek Shepherd went through many ups and downs in their relationship ever since they hooked up in a bar randomly and unknowingly that they would be working together. However, whatever ups and downs they went through, the audience had always rooted for these two.

Still, unfortunately, Dempsey's character was killed off the show in the 11th season of the series as he and the creator, Shonda Rhimes had a difficult time seeing eye to eye. Regardless of all this drama, McDreamy returned in Season 17! Obviously in a dream sequence but he did and all the Grey-Shepherd fans had lost their calm.
