'Grey's Anatomy': Patrick Dempsey Wants to See Derek as Devoted Father
Proposing a plot for his character in season 8, the 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' actor says, 'I think he'll probably be devoting more of his time to his child than he will to his work.'


Derek and Meredith were about to add another role in their life when they broke up in the season 7 finale of "Grey's Anatomy". As their adoption proceeded, Patrick Dempsey has proposed a plot for his character when the show returns this fall, saying "I think he'll probably be devoting more of his time to his child than he will to his work."

On whether or not the couple will reunite, the 45-year-old says, "I think there's a lot more room for them to develop as adults instead of being stuck in this adolescent dynamic." He, however, adds, "It's going to be incredibly hard for them to get back together, because she's really betrayed him on a personal and professional level."

The Derek depicter, who recently gave a scarce that he would quit the show after season 8, is now seemingly more careful with his words. "It's not in my court - it's up to ABC and [executive producer] Shonda Rhimes if she wants to continue," he says when asked by TV Guide if he will leave after next season. "I would love to have a discussion as to where I would like to go."

While the cast and the show's future is still in a blur, creator Shonda Rhimes has revealed she is approaching the coming season as if it is the finale. "It might be the last hurrah for a lot of them; you never know. I really don't know and I don't presume to know. Everybody has an individual choice to make and I get that.... All the originals are in play," she explained last month.
