Thursday’s episode of Grey's Anatomy shocked fans and thousands of viewers when Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey’s role in the show) died in a car accident. Numerous fans took to Twitter their dismay with one fan saying, “Grey's anatomy will never be the same without @PatrickDempsey !!”
But there is one fan who took it to the next level. Courtney Williams has made a petition to bring back Dempsey’s character back, and she even wrote in detail why the show's executive producer, Shonda Rhimes, should bring back Dempsey’s character. It has gained over 57,485 supporters as of writing. The dismayed Grey's Anatomy fans are that serious.
Williams had a powerful and convincing start:
"This is important because you cannot have people invest a DECADE into a character and then you just terminate them like that! You have people out here donating blood and organs trying to save lives, wanting to become doctors and all from committing to this television show..just to let us down like this. You've destroyed us. COMPLETELY!"
Why Shonda, Why?
Why would you do us like this? Dedicated and die-hard fans! We DO NOT deserve this!
We would have been better off hating Derek thinking he was cheating on Meredith than for you to just kill him off. I would rather hate him thinking he is an adulterer than have him dead!
She ends it with this statement:
THIS IS NOT WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT! WE WANT DEREK BACK! BRING HIM BACK!!!!!! FLIP THE FREAKING SCRIPT!!!!! LITERALLY!
Rimes hasn't issued a response yet regarding the petition.
