Spoler: Rocky Road Ahead in the Derek/Meredith Relationship Plot

Shonda Rhimes recently spoke with EW and revealed that post-it note marriage or not, Derek and Meredith are in for a rocky road. Though, despite rumors the executive producer assures us that they’re in it for the long haul!

“They will face relationship challenges, many of them work-oriented, in the second half of the season,” reveals creator Shonda Rhimes.

I don’t know how many times [I] can say, ‘Derek and Meredith are together forever’ and have anybody hear it,” the  executive producer says. “I can only reassure so much.”

“In order to [produce] a drama you need to have some drama,” Rhimes adds.

“Whether or not two people are meant for one another and will remain together doesn’t mean that things aren’t going to happen to challenge their relationship.”

Let’s face it, if there weren’t some rough times, Derek and Meredith’s relationship WOULDN’T make it, that’s just the nature of the beast. But, we can wonder specifically what’s in store.
