As Dr. Meredith Grey on Grey’s Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo has the distinction of playing one of the longest-running characters currently on television — and one of the longest-suffering characters too. This season alone, Meredith’s coped with aftermath of her husband Derek Shephard’s death and confronted the doctor responsible for it; and in tonight’s mid-season premiere (directed by Denzel Washington), she’ll suffer a violent attack at the hands of a patient. spoke to Pompeo on her lunch break earlier this week to talk about Meredith’s future, why ageism is alive and well in Hollywood, and what she and Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes have discussed about the end of the series.

Meredith is savagely attacked by a patient in the mid-season premiere. How does this twist compare to some of the many other big twists or shockers on the show?
That’s what Shonda does best, is give us these big twists and turns. And even though the fans get upset at these big, dramatic changes, I cannot tell you how important big, dramatic changes are for the writers, who have to write 24 episodes of television [every season]. One of the most amazing things to come out of this year is the addition of Penny, who is played by Samantha Sloyan, and who was the doctor who made the fatal mistake to not get a CT on Derek Shepherd. That part of episode five, the dinner party, where it’s revealed that Penny is [in Seattle], was one of the most compelling episodes of this season. And that could not have happened had we not had the changes that we had last year.

Unfortunately, these big changes are tough. And they’re tough for us emotionally, too, when we lose people, but that helps us act, and it helps us tell the story. Sorry, I got off on a tangent, but this [twist] ranks right up there.

What was your reaction to the script?
I was skeptical when they told me that something else catastrophic was going to happen to Meredith. I said, “Well, how is the audience going to respond to that? And how do I tell that story truthfully, being that I’ve just played the story of losing my husband?” But the fact that Denzel [Washington] stepped in makes everything OK. It gives everything a justification, because he’s such a creative genius that he can get away with anything … I can’t say enough about how he inspired me. I certainly gave it more than I usually do for him. I really wanted to inspire him and make him grateful that he came to work with us. I didn’t want him leaving here saying, “Why did I go and do that?”

How much trauma can Meredith Grey take?
Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) has been through a lot over the course of 12 seasons on Grey’s Anatomy, to put it mildly, but the injuries she suffers in Thursday’s midseason premiere, after being attacked by a patient at the hospital, may change her life forever.
“The attack itself is shocking. It’s quite brutal, and the damage is extensive,” Caterina Scorsone, who plays Meredith’s sister-in-law Amelia, tells “It’s not just a couple bruises. … It’s a pretty long-term situation.”

The long-lasting injuries could have an impact on Meredith’s standing as head of general surgery at Grey Sloan, not to mention her life as a widowed mother raising three children. And while she’s the only target of the attack, its effects are far-reaching. “Meredith is the person who gets attacked, but it does impact everyone quite profoundly because she’s such a central person in the constellation of relationships at the hospital,” Scorsone says.
