‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 10 spoilers: Will Webber survive?

Chief WebberTake a deep breath. You’ve had a little bit of time now to digest and process Thursday night’s “Grey’s Anatomy” season finale, and now we are just left with wondering where in the world Shonda Rhimes wants to go from here.

Even before the episode aired, the showrunner promised that the fate of at least one of her characters was left in the balance. To be frank, she wasn’t kidding. Webber’s electrocution sets up a scary and dangerous position for the start of season 10, and one that we cannot be sure he will survive for a number of reasons. For one, the character is older, and it’s harder for someone older to survive versus a younger person. Two, Rhimes has clearly showed that she is not afraid of killing someone in a season premiere. Just as Eric Dane, who probably is now happy that she did given that he has his new pilot “The Last Ship” airing on TNT next summer.

Rhimes is not speaking out one way or another on Webber’s future, but his fate should be revealed in the premiere this fall.

There’s one other question to consider when talking about the “will Webber survive?” debate: Whether or not “Grey’s Anatomy” season 10 will be the end. The contracts are going to be up for Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, and many other leads, and it would be extremely expensive to bring them all back. Plus, we’re of the personal belief that while we never want to see a hard-working crew out of a job, ten seasons is the perfect length for a show like this to go on.

If you didn’t get a chance to share your reaction to Arizona’s infidelity, the Cristina / Owen breakup, or any of the other devastating events from last night, don’t worry: We have it covered for you here.
