‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9 spoilers: Derek tries to adapt

As we inch ever closer to the September 27 premiere of “Grey’s Anatomy,” there all sorts of questions worth asking — and one that is currently near the top of the list is what sort of change we are going to see for Meredith and Derek in the aftermath of everything that happened with the plane crash.

So what is Derek going to be up to during the early stages of season 9? Speaking as a part of a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Shonda Rhimes promises that we are going to see an interesting side to Patrick Dempsey’s character as he tackles what is effectively a pretty tough issue:

“[Derek will be questioning] what kind of doctor are you when you can’t do the thing you’re greatest at any more … We’re going to see him head back, but there is that question for him.”

Derek spent last season dealing with a myriad of problems — beginning with some struggles in his relationship with Meredith and ending with the plan crash and a major decision to make when it comes to his career. We know that both these two have been offered jobs elsewhere, and that some employees at Seattle Grace are likely to move on. Will they? Even though there are claims that the show has cast a real estate agent for an upcoming episode, we’re still doubtful given all of the time that Derek spent constructing the couple’s dream home.

Is there anything that you want to specifically see happen to Derek this coming season? We want to hear some of your thoughts with a comment below! If you want to check out some more of the latest news pertaining to Callie, be sure and visit the link here.
