Meredith and Derek meme (X) : Derek quote about Meredith
2x12 Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer
Derek (to Addison): Yeah. … Christmas makes you want to be with people you love… I’m not saying this to hurt you or because I want to leave you. Because I don’t. Meredith wasn’t a fling. She wasn’t revenge. I fell in love with her. That doesn’t go away because I decided to stay with you.
It was the first time Derek admits HE LOVES MEREDITH. We all knew it but seeing how he says it, make this fact more and more true. I think this is also the first time he realizes he made a mistake and he really wants to be with Meredith. Anyway, Derek hurt BOTH OF THEM in season 2. He hurt Meredith and he hurt Addison. And it doesn’t matter if I like Addison or I don’t like her. He hurt Meredith when he went back with Addison and he hurt Addison being with her when he didn’t even love her anymore. I know that maybe a lot of MerDer fans don’t agree with me, but this is really what I think. If he had been a BRAVER MAN, all this crap would have never happened. Well, the point is that finally Derek admits the true. All that he couldn’t say to Meredith that night when she went to talk to him in the trailer after Addison showed up, he’s saying here. He admits that he fell in love with her during all those months. Maybe he wasn’t looking for that, but it happened, and when I saw this, I knew nobody was going to change that. I knew that eventually, he and Meredith would be together.
