Kim Raver is set to reprise her role as Grey’s Anatomy‘s Dr. Teddy Altman.
Raver last played Teddy in the ABC drama’s Season 8 finale, in which Meredith, Cristina and others fought to survive the aftermath of their plane crash in the woods. Back at Seattle Grace, meanwhile, Owen fired Teddy so that she could without guilt accept a chief position at the United States Army Medical Command.
Also, setting up a love triangle for the coming Season we hope, Raver’s Teddy was the person who confirmed that Owen’s sister/Nathan’s ex-love Dr. Megan Hunt had been found alive, 10 years after an Army helicopter disappearance. Raver will return to Grey’s as a guest star, presumably as a part of that continuing storyline.
Poor Meredith’s newly official relationship with Nathan seemed to go up in flames last Season with the big reveal that Megan was found and is very much alive. Meredith and Nathan were making progress in turning their flirtation into a relationship, until Nathan took off to join Owen and Amelia at the military hospital to which Megan was being flown.
Pick me, choose me, love me all over again if you ask me.
Meanwhile, April and Jackson hooked up. They’re still so connected to one another, especially now that they have a child together and are roommates. You can see how much love there still is there, you see how deep their friendship is and honestly, how much they need each other.
April has realised that Maggie is into him, and encouraged her to tell Jackson. Maggie’s Mom’s last words to her were
that she ought to “be a little slutty” and “make a mistake” so it seems Maggie’s finally taken the advice after losing Nathan to Meredith and Andrew humiliating her.
Grey’s has no return date yet, but has been confirmed.
Poor Laurel Castillo.
Her one time beau, Frank, went M.I.A. for weeks – and when she tried to get information on his whereabouts, she was forced to sign her life away to her father. She barely survived a house fire that killed her next boyfriend, Wes, and she’s unexpectedly pregnant with his child. Her own father was responsible for Wes’ death.
When Season 4 opens, She’s still going through grief while being pregnant, and she has a big decision to make.
Meanwhile, the romance quotient hits an all time high with Michaela and Asher confessing they love each other, and Oliver proposing Connor move back in with him.
For Michaela to hear Asher say that he sees her as family meant so much because for her, family is this whole other thing. She’s hinted before – the people she grew up around, the word “family” isn’t a right way to describe them. It’s not how she feels about them. For Asher to say that to her, and what that could potentially be for the two of them to truly be family together, is huge.
However, with Oliver keeping secret from Connor that he kept a copy of Annalise’s phone, and after making the phone call to cancel the Stanford acceptance letter and then hide the fact from Connor, there’s still a hill to climb if these two are ever going to be on the same page.
For Annalise, Season 4 is about coming to terms with losing Wes, whom she’d treated as though he was her own son, even though he killed her husband Sam. Wes had come to accept that she’s one of the most important people in his life. As much as she’s done some very questionable things as far as his interests are concerned, and as much as she’s kept things from him, they’ve been bound together. And she’s also shown him fantastic mercy.
ABC has confirmed Scandal‘s upcoming seventh season will be the show’s last. The announcement was made by ABC president Channing Dungey during a conference call with reporters.
The ABC drama’s seventh and final season will consist of 18 episodes. That represents a two-episode increase over Season 6, which was scaled back from 22 to 16 episodes due to leading lady Kerry Washington’s pregnancy.
Exec Producer Shonda Rhimes was quoted as stating:
‘’We are going all out. Leaving nothing on the table. Creating this world in celebration. We are going to handle the end the way we like to handle the important things in our Scandal family: all together, white hats on, gladiators running full speed over a cliff.”
After putting in six seasons as a Scandal recurring player, George Newbern is being promoted to a full-fledged series regular for the ABC’s drama’s upcoming seventh and final season.
Since his introduction, Charlie has (mostly) shed his shady ways, taking a job at OPA and planning a future with Quinn, his blushing bride-to-be — that is, assuming her lingering feelings for Huck don’t put a damper on the big day.
Olivia being named Mellie’s chief of staff doesn’t change Rowan’s agenda; who never wanted to spend any time at the White House.
As for the final Season, fans are perhaps hoping there’s still love between Fitz and Olivia. Actor Tony Goldwyn said of his character Fitz:
“The relationship is a delicate balancing act, one that becomes more difficult as the seasons progress. Fitz is in love with Olivia, and he always will be. He’s learned how to manage that. He’s grateful that she’s still in his orbit and that he can have a business relationship with her. In some sense, they have a very strong connection, even though it’s very painful for them to be together. They’re honest with each other, they have a sort of short-hand communication. But for Fitz, he’s had to make his peace with the fact that Olivia does not want him. It’s just one of those things in life that causes him grief — but he’s had a lot of that over the years, so he’s no stranger to it.”
Meanwhile Olivia’s other love interest, Jake Ballard is trapped in a tragic marriage. Actor Scott Foley says of his character ‘Jake’ that he believes a romantic reunion with Olivia is still possible… at some point.
“Jake’s in a really tough spot. He’s living in this home with a woman he doesn’t love-he probably doesn’t even like her, to be honest-but he understands her predicament, as anyone would. If you’re in a relationship with someone, and you don’t want to be there, but they do, it’s really difficult. I think he feels awful about it. But at the same time, she’s a pawn in a much bigger chess game.”
The final Season’s return has been confirmed but the date has yet to be announced.
All your favourite shows ended this month and now make room for a slew of new shows. Some of these shows are always broadcast at mid-season. We’re glad to see these faves returning this mid-season:
MILLON DOLLAR LISTING NEW YORK
After the recent trauma of Ryan Serhant’s nuptials and the shock announcement at the end of last Season that Luis was quitting Real Estate, we are so glad to see the return of high-kicking Frederik and his artist husband ‘Big D’ formerly known as Derek the Brit.
The season opener set the bar high with Ryan landing a new portfolio of one hundred houses all needing to be sold in just ninety days. Frederik was equally under pressure to sell an apartment with a communal garden for a fussy client who had him up against the wall right up to the last frame of the episode. Let’s see if the pace can continue all Season.
This one is worth binge-watching previous Seasons on one very rainy weekend. (Amazon Video). The story of a psychiatrist who has to live with her brother when her relationship crumbles. Taking her teenage daughter in tow provides the angst of the piece until you factor in how the brother has a startup dating app and has to sell it when it fails at market. He uses it to find a girlfriend and its a disaster. If you like watching dysfunctional families go through their worst day ever, this ones for you.
THE NEW SHOWS
American Gods (Starz)
Not for the faint-hearted, the cursing, sex scenes, and violence took me to almost two episodes before I switched off. Not for me.

The retelling of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 epic novel, giving us an insider’s view of debauchery at the hands of the elite in a hellish dystopian society where women are sold as chattle, made to bear children for barren couples. Its mesmerising to watch Elisabeth Moss cope with the gravity of the situation her character, Offred, finds herself in. Compelling watching on catch up as the series has just ended its first run.
Downward Dog (ABC)
A lonely dog navigates the complexity of 21st century relationships. The dog narrates each episode with some funny insights. It’s kind of sad but it’s always upbeat too. His owner is a workaholic who the dog realises only turns to him when her life is in the toilet. Her ex spends more time with the dog as he was adopted by them when they were a couple, but now they’re deciding what they are.
