'Grey's Anatomy' Season 17 Episode 11: Is Meredith actually awake? Fans hope it's a dream, wish for more MerDer
'Me realizing that we get to see Derek one more time this season so he probably is still alive,' a fan wrote
Fans have been waiting for Meredith Grey to wake up, but now that she has, as we've seen in the trailer for the upcoming episode, they want her to go right back to sleep again. The reason is that fans know that once Meredith comes away from the sandy beach to terra firma, the reunion for Meredith and Derek will be over. It seems that fans aren't ready to say goodbye just yet.
According to some dedicated fans, who have also been paying very close attention to what show creator Krista Vernoff says, the number of Derek Shepherd appearances that were promised haven't been made as yet.
One fan on YouTube said, "Fun fact: Mer is probably gonna have to go on a vent again or smth like that because Krista said that Patrick was gonna come back to the beach for a third time...." Others clearly remember this promise too. Another fan on YouTube though took it to a rather unrealistic level, "Me realizing that we get to see Derek one more time this season so he probably is still alive"
Other fans aren't so concerned as to how McDreamy is going to be a part of one more episode, they just want to see him one way or the other "I will only be ok with Meredith waking up IF they give Derek at least one more scene". Another said, "I'm happy that Meredith is alive but I want to see one more episode of Mark and Lexie. Come on one episode is not enough. I also want to see a goodbye kind of scene with Derek and Meredith... Come on give us what we deserve"
Fans are in fact suspicious of the so called happy ending, with Meredith waking up, for more reasons than one. One fan on YouTube says, "i find it a little surprising that they show mer waking up in the teaser promo im wondering if this is just another dream sequence she is in to throw us off."
