Ellen Pompeo on 'Grey's Anatomy' McDreamy surprise

Ellen Pompeo on 'Grey's Anatomy' McDreamy surprise“Grey’s Anatomy” fans got more than they could have ever expected in the season 17 premiere: a McDreamy reunion. At the end of the two-part premiere, a crossover event with spin-off “Station 19,” Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) came face-to-face with her late husband, Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), on a picturesque beach after having been found on the ground in the Grey Sloan parking lot. The jaw-dropping moment, according to Pompeo, was a “no-brainer” because he was “one of the most important people in Meredith’s life.”
