Shonda Rhimes seem to be on a killing spree, as another major character from her show 'Grey's Anatomy' has been killed off.
Following last week's epic 'death' of a major character on Shonda Rhime's 'Scandal' TV show, another major character has been killed of her 'Grey's Anatomy' show.
Patrick Dempsey's character on Grey's Anatomy, Derek Shepard AKA Mr. McDreamy was killed off in Thursday episode of show.
Written by show's creator, Shonda Rhimes, the episode opened with Derek witnessing a car crash, and attending to the victims (he wasn't involved in the crash).
After saving lives, Derek gets back into his car and instead of watching the road, he carelessly reaches for his phone, and that was the end... A truck headed his way hit him.
He was rushed to a hospital where the doctors are not as dedicated as doctors from Grey Sloan Memorial.
He suffers brain damage before Meredith comes along and makes the tough decision to take Derek off life support.
This is what Patrick Dempsey, who played Derek for 11 seasons said to TVLine;
"Patrick Dempsey, who of course played Derek for the past 11 seasons, released a statement to TVLine following the episode.
“It’s been a remarkable ride,” He said. “The worldwide impact has been extraordinary. It is incredible how devoted and passionate the fans are and I will forever be grateful and humbled by the experience.”
