Holy heartbreaker, Batman. Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd is dead and we will never be the same.
Given how the previous episode of Grey's left off, as well as the rumors that flew around this week, Derek's demise wasn't unexpected. In fact, we spent pretty much the whole hour just waiting for it to happen. We're way too emotional to articulate all the thoughts that went through our heads during the episode, so instead, we're going to let the following 26 GIFs do the talking.
Meredith's childhood was the worst. Nothing good ever comes from her talking about it.
But if TV has taught us one thing, it's that people die right after they appear to have reached the ultimate happiness.
Sure, it's just phone reception, but our Spidey senses tell us it means something in the grand scheme of things.
'Cause you just know Derek is dead.
And you realize that perhaps all this worry was unnecessary and all those reports of him dying were written by gullible suckers.
And we're back to being confused about whether he's going to die or not.
Which means someone is going to die and it's going to be Derek.
At least someone is bringing the LOLs.
Ah, Derek, that's more than a "little cut." And you're not a general surgeon.
Yeah, it's over.
This is why phones and cars don't go together. In memory of Derek, we will never drive or use a phone again, let alone do both at the same time.
Seriously, who are these hacks?
Perhaps he can coach them through his own surgery?
That's how science works, right?
Take him to get the blessed head CT, people! Can't you hear his internal monologue?
Yes, women are the best. The male doctors have no idea what they're doing. Can't Derek just operate on himself?
Food is important, yes. On any other day, food should obviously be a priority, but not today.
You also contemplate suing a fictional hospital.
Now we love that neurosurgeon.
Back to hating that neurosurgeon.
Oh, God. And then she asks what to do with her kids, who are now fatherless.
And there it is. Derek is gone.
This is what Oprah would call a "teachable moment."
This is physically painful to watch.
Not this song. Tears. All. The. Tears.
God, not the first time they met. We can't handle this right now.
Effectively also pulling the plug on the chances of us enjoying our weekend. RIP, Derek. Your death won't just haunt red-haired doctor lady. It's going to haunt us, too.
