SPOILER ALERT! SERIOUSLY. DO NOT KEEP READING THIS IF YOU DON'T WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENED ON GREY'S ANATOMY. WE'RE NOT KIDDING. JUST STOP RIGHT NOW. YOU'RE ONLY HURTING YOURSELF.
There are no words to describe the emotional roller coaster Grey's Anatomy fans had to endure tonight.
Admirers of the hit ABC series had to say goodbye to one of our favorites—Dr. McDreamy aka Derek Shepherd aka Patrick Dempsey. Yep, he died on us.
Between the sudden T-bone from the big rig (although once that phone started buzzing, we knew what was coming), his flashbacks about Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), the montage of their romance and that cover of Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" playing in the background, Derek's death was absolutely traumatizing for viewers and seriously broke our hearts.
So what does one do to cope with such a loss? Go to Twitter, of course.
Check out some of the tweets Grey's fans posted after having to bid farewell to our favorite neurosurgeon.
