SPOILER ALERT: Loss of Dr. McDreamy a nightmare for ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ fans

News Staff and CNN | posted Friday, Apr 24th, 2015

Don’t say we didn’t warn you. If you haven’t watched the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy, do not read any further.

Fans of the show are still in shock after Thursday night’s heartbreaking episode called “How to Save a Life.”

Patrick Dempsey’s character, Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd was pulled off life support, after being hit by a truck while helping victims of a car crash. His undiagnosed head trauma left him comatose.

After 11 seasons, Dempsey is moving on to other things. The question is: Can the show’s fans?

A quick check of social media shows a lot of broken hearts will need some time to heal.

Of course there were tears, lots of tears.

Others felt a big sense of betrayal — mostly directed at Shonda Rhimes, the medical drama’s creator and showrunner.

Dempsey still has a year left in his contract, so fans are hoping he will be back in a dream sequence.

But for now, say goodnight, Dr. McDreamy.
