Alright, Grey's fans! It's time for another season of our favorite show, Grey's Anatomy! Though the season premiere has come and gone, there are still lots to talk about, and a whole season of episodes ahead of us!

I first want to start off with some rumors I heard - one being that this is the final season of Grey's Anatomy. I heard this just weeks before the premiere from my boyfriend. No idea where he heard that - maybe he was trying to scare me! But then, I saw a poll in a magazine asking readers: "Would you continue to watch Grey's Anatomy if Meredith isn't on the show?" This led to my next panic attack - No more Meredith?! How is that even possible?!

Rest assured, neither of these rumors seem to be true. For one, if this was the final season, it most likely would have been mentioned during the commercial previews. You know - they'd show some clips to get you all worked up for the premiere, and then say something along the lines of "Grey's Anatomy - the final season! Don't miss it, this Thursday, on ABC!" I certainly didn't hear that, so I don't believe this is the final season.

Secondly, there may be talk about Meredith leaving the show - is it true? I don't know. After an interview with TV Guide, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) said, "I haven't said I'm moving on. I said that when my contract is up after Season 8, I would probably not renew."

If she does leave, that doesn't mean the show will end. Of course, it is debatable if the viewers will still watch. What's Grey's Anatomy without Meredith? For the past seven years, it's been all about Meredith - she is the show, as many will argue.

This could, however, open up doorways for Lexi to continue Meredith's "legacy" on the show. And, it certainly wouldn't mess with the title, since she is a Grey. Personally, I don't want Meredith to leave, and will be very upset if she does, but, as a dedicated Grey's fan, I don't think I could part with the series altogether, and will continue to watch. I think I could be excited if Lexi became the new Meredith. I'm a big Lexi-Mark fan, so if this were to happen, I hope more will happen between them.

However, I wasn't very fond of the new interns, and even though they've been in the series for a while now, I still can't get used to them. If more of the main characters slowly start to leave, I think at that point I'll stop watching. I don't even think the ratings will be that great, and eventually they will have to end. I hope it doesn't get to that point. Sure, everything must come to an end. I just hope the new characters that have been introduced lately don't take over.

Now, as far as the premiere goes, can you say wow?! I was very happy about how it turned out. The perfect amount of happiness and surprises. Some things were resolved, and you can tell the future will be well between certain characters. But there was also a lot left open that I believe will be resolved in future episodes, so there is still a lot to look forward to!

At this point, I assume most of you have seen the premiere, but if not, stop reading! I will be talking about the episode!

Cristina and Owen - back together? Stronger than ever? I think yes! It took the whole episode and a speech from our beloved Meredith, but Owen came to support Cristina in the abortion. Of course, this whole issue is a huge controversy, and I'm sure there were some fans that were very upset with the decision, but I think that's what makes the show, and that episode, so strong. I personally would have loved to see Cristina as a mother, but I also agree with Meredith's speech - she's not a mother, and it would kill her to raise a child without the love it deserves. I just don't see why she couldn't give the child up for adoption instead. But, I'm glad they're back together, nonetheless!

Arizona, Calliope, and Mark - happy family! Two moms and a dad - their baby certainly has a happy life ahead! All is well, and I'm certainly very happy about that - but now Mark is involved with the baby, exactly what Lexi didn't want when his first daughter appeared a few seasons ago. And the end of last season, there was certainly a lot going on between them. Friction, chemistry, and so many emotions. I was almost certain this season would be their season, but with baby in the picture, I think Mark will be very preoccupied. I almost feel like they have died down and there won't be a lot brought up this season with them. Of course, we'll have to see.

Meredith and Derek - our star couple! But, lately, they haven't been doing so well. At the end of last season they were separated! And, unfortunately, they're the one couple that still doesn't have things completely resolved, at least not yet, and it cost them their child. She's not gone forever, but if Meredith and Derek can't work things out, they'll never get to see little Zola again. However, the end of the episode certainly provided a shocking twist. Chief took the blame for Meredith, claiming he messed with the Alzheimer's trial. Meredith has her job back, but what does this mean for the Chief? Will he be leaving the show? It appears that he wants to spend more time with Adele, but I can't imagine he will still have his job. Will this make room for Derek to take over? And can he and Meredith work things out? It's just not the same without them together. Only time will tell.

I'm sure you're all looking forward to another drama filled season! It will be interesting to see how things play out, and I for one cannot wait!
