Is there a Euphoria x Grey’s Anatomy crossover on the horizon? Well, fans remain hopeful after a new episode from the HBO series premiered this past weekend.
On Sunday, the episode “Ruminations: Big and Little Bullys” aired on the network. The opening scene showed a series of flashbacks where Cal Jacobs was an adolescent.
While Eric Dane normally plays the adult version of Cal, fans got a chance to see him as a teenager. The cut-away scenes revealed that Cal (Elias Kacavas) was secretly in love with his best friend named Derek (Henry Eikenberry).
After the episode aired, fans couldn’t help but wonder if the “Derek” name drop was a direct reference to Grey’s Anatomy. In the ABC medical drama, Dane played the role of Mark Sloan (aka Dr. McSteamy), who happened to be best friends with Derek Shepherd (played by Patrick Dempsey).
