Long live McDreamy!

Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, Grey’s Anatomy fans can live in a world where Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) is still alive and well.

On Monday, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host and fellow Game of Thrones fans were still recovering from Sunday’s game-changing resurrection of Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and what better way to celebrate than to fantasize about another beloved TV character returning from the dead?

And that’s exactly what Kimmel, 48, did with a hilarious parody of the two hit shows.

The host teased the audience with an “exclusive” promo of Grey’s Anatomy that featured Dempsey’s character coming back to life. He claimed that Sunday’s episode of Thrones was such a hit that now other shows are following suit and reviving beloved characters. The clip mashes together perfectly, with McDreamy opening his eyes at the last second.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights (11:35 p.m. ET) on ABC; Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC, and Game of Thrones airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on HBO.
