Fans of "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 are constantly treated with heart-pounding scenes with every hospital incident that the characters are involved in. With this, the characters themselves are mixed in their own drama, and the midseason finale gave fans a glimpse of what is to come.

Midseason Cliffhanger

"Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 will be returning on January 29 next year. The show left its fans hanging, as Alex (Justin Chambers) is set to face jail time for almost killing his co-worker. Jo (Camilla Luddington), the only one who could potentially save him, decides to skip town. Also, as many surprises go, Amelia (Catarina Scorsone) ends her marriage with Owen (Kevin McKidd).

Meredith Has Alzheimer's Disease?

While the anticipation for the next episode of "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 grows by the day, fans are left to speculate and form theories on what will happen on the show. One glaring theory is that Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) develops Alzheimer's disease. This has already been proven as a possibility, as several Alzheimer genetic markers were discovered in "Grey's Anatomy" Season 9.

Derek Not Really Dead?

In a heartbreaking cameo in its eighth episode, "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 saw the return of actor Patrick Dempsey, who plays the character of Dr. Derek Shepherd. However, with the new theory of Meredith's Alzheimer's disease, it could be possible that Derek is not really dead, but had just faded away from Meredith's memory, with remnants of his presence still unforgotten.

This then opens a lot of possibilities for "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13, but also means that Meredith will be suffering a tragic fate. Characters could ultimately return to the show, as they may simply have been forgotten by Meredith.

Sandra Oh to Return?

It has also been previously rumored that Sandra Oh, who plays Dr. Cristina Yang, could possibly return to "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13. The actress left the show in Season 10, and her character was written in which she just only moved to a different place. This gives fans a hope that the beloved character could once again grace the hospital.
