“You made everyone cry five years ago when you died and then you made people cry again when you returned.”

That’s what Ellen said to Patrick Dempsey while discussing his surprise return to “Grey’s Anatomy.”  I was definitely one of the fans doing the “ugly cry” while watching last week’s season premiere!

Find out how his return came to be and how long we will have the joy of seeing “McDreamy” back on “Grey’s.”

It seems like he let it slip about Meredith’s diagnosis in this interview.  We’ll see tonight on an all new episode of “Grey’s Anatomy.”
