(Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t watched this episode of Grey’s Anatomy then I would suggest that you exit the window immediately if you want to be surprised while watching the show.)
An Entertainment Weekly subscriber is said to have received an an early issue of the magazine a little bit earlier than it was initially planned and one particular story that the magazine had focused on quickly captured the eye of many. Readers were presented with a full exclusive story which featured Patrick Dempsey’s exit from Grey’s Anatomy with a headline: “The Doctor Is….Out”
It is being reported that Entertainment Weekly issued out a statement stating:
“We are surprised that an EW subscriber may have received their issue a day earlier than planned.”
The statement went on to state that, “We always try our best to bring readers exclusive news first. We would like to apologize to fans of the show that learned the news ahead of time.”
Here is the EW’s pic:
"Derek Shepherd is and will always be an incredibly important character — for Meredith, for me and for the fans. I absolutely never imagined saying goodbye to our 'McDreamy,'" Shonda Rhimes, the show’s creator and executive producer said in a statement which was released to People.
“Patrick Dempsey's performance shaped Derek in a way that I know we both hope became a meaningful example — happy, sad, romantic, painful and always true — of what young women should demand from modern love."
"His loss will be felt by all. Now, Meredith and the entire Grey's Anatomy family are about to enter uncharted territory as we head into this new chapter of her life. The possibilities for what may come are endless. As Ellis Grey would say ... the carousel never stops turning."
