"I am 40 years old & have been a loyal viewer since S1E1. Grey's has been my escape through the years. It's seen me through divorce, career changes, nursing school, and --- currently ---- cancer. It was like a trusted friend that I could count on to cheer me up once a week & forget about my problems. No more."
Dempsey was not in some of the episodes and fans started to question what was going on.
“If something will happen to Derek I don’t know if I can still look forward to more episodes,” wrote one fan.
Another fan wrote on his Facebook page, “I have never missed one episode but I swear if Rhimes kills you off I’m done.”
Fans tweeted their feeling about the whole situation of Derek being killed off.
The creator of the show hasn't said much about what happened. She only issued a statement to EW:
“I never imagined saying goodbye to our ‘McDreamy’—then again, none of us here at Grey’s Anatomy imagined any of the many journeys this show has taken us on. Now, Meredith and I are about to enter uncharted territory as we head into this new chapter of her life.”
Dempsey mentions that his job took a toll on his children. He said he would work for "10 months, 15 hours a day." His children would ask him if he was working a certain day and he would never know.
" Doing that for 11 years is challenging…. What I would like to do is focus on not being spread so thin. Those days are over.”
Even though his death shocked us all. It seems like Dempsey thought it was time for his character to end after eleven seasons.
