Meredith has a tough time breaking the news of her husband's demise over morning coffee


You’re not the only one still reeling over Dr. Derek Shepherd’s death.

On Thursday’s special two-hour episode of Grey’s Anatomy, it’s business as usual for most of the doctors in Grey Sloan Memorial’s break room. Key word: Most.

Enter Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo).

Suddenly a widow after last week’s shocking turn of events, Meredith has to deliver the gut-wrenching news of her husband’s death to her oblivious colleagues. Suffice it to say, the words doesn’t come out smoothly.

“His loss will be felt by all,” wrote Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes in a statement about star Patrick Dempsey‘s abrupt departure. Now that Mer and Der’s work family know the horrible truth, it’s time to put those words to the test.

Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
