“Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way. Because without it, I don't know; maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.” Grey's anatomy
Thursday night’s Grey’s Anatomy was a heartbreaker for Meredith Grey, and also the fans. The loss of Derek Shepherd after 10 seasons of romantic glances left many loyal viewers upset and crestfallen. “I have a feeling therapists worldwide are going to make a fortune tomorrow,” one fan wrote.
Rhimes characterizes Grey as doing what she thinks is right: “Meredith is the girl who put her hand on a bomb in a body cavity. Meredith is the girl who tried to help a serial killer kill himself, so that he could donate his organs. Meredith—and this is obvious—has a compass that has always led her to shades of grey. She does not believe in black-and-white, she does not believe in good or bad, she does what she thinks is right.
