After a get-together with Pompeo over the summer, she and Dempsey brainstormed ways to encourage people to wear a mask, which culminated in Derek being re-introduced.

"Patrick and I have this chemistry where I think even from when we first met, for some reason it just felt like we've known each other for a hundred years, and it's just the same feeling", Pompeo told Deadline. "Here's our idea of what we want to do for Season 17", Dempsey recalled.

"I was like, "What a great opportunity for people".

Fans were indeed somewhat devastated by brief Derek's return, with one writing: "OMG WHAT JUST HAPPENED IM SOBBING NONONONO DEREK #GreysAnatomy", while another added: "Me rewatching the Derek/Meredith scene for the 684th time and. sobbing each time bc I've never seen anything more. handsome".

Dempsey was on board as evidenced by his surprise return to Grey Sloan Memorial - or at least the beach on which Meredith popped up after passing out in last week's show.

Were you surprised to see the return of Derek?

"Nobody knew about it other than some people at ABC, Krista, and then Ellen [Pompeo] and myself, and that was it", he confirmed. Dempsey adds that directors Debbie Allen and Kevin McKidd (Owen) were told, too, at some point.

"No one knew until I showed up on set that day", Dempsey continued. "We'd be concerned it would come out somehow". The idea of him returning to Grey's Anatomy for the seventeenth season was then born.
