Patrick Dempsey Almost Spoils 'Grey's Anatomy' For Everyone

Did McDreamy reveal a plot spoiler for McSteamy’s already planned exit on "Grey’s Anatomy?"

According to EW, Patrick Dempsey tweeted a pic of Eric Dane, lying in a hospital bed, rocking a band-aid on his cheek, all Nelly-style.

Dempsey has since removed the evidence at the request of ABC, but not before the whole thing sparked a flurry of speculation regarding planned, but not yet revealed, plot lines.

Though it's been on the operating table that Dane is planning an exit to the series for a while, the pic led fans to wonder if the end of Dane’s run will actually be marked by the demise of his character.

EW had spoken with creator Shonda Rhimes earlier in the week as she talked about the season 9 premiere. “When we start the season, we are ahead enough in time where we see the outcome of lots of things. And in the second episode of the season, there’s rewind — we go backwards — to where they’re still in the forest,” she said. “So you see what happened and in the next episode, you see how we get there.”

The forest? What?

Yeah, in case you missed it, season 8 ended with some kind of a plane crash involving a lot of the cast. At least one of them didn’t survive the tragedy.

So could the Steam Engine be next? It’s certainly possible. No one is invincible… especially not in a hospital setting. That’s just the way the gurneys turn, ya’ll.
