Grey’s Anatomy News

Ellen Pompeo is poised to step behind the camera later this season to direct a special episode of the hit ABC drama. The episode’s air date is likely to fall in March/April.

Pompeo will direct the special episode focussed on a flashback to Alex’s (Justin Chambers) turbulent teenage years. Alex spent much of his childhood coping with a drug-addict father and schizophrenic mother, eventually having his mother committed. He lived in more than a dozen foster homes, spent time in juvenile detention and lost his virginity to a nurse at his high school at 15.

Other highlights when Grey’s returns include Jo in the midst of a very tense reunion with her abusive husband, Dr. Paul Stadler (Glee vet Matthew Morrison). It should make compelling viewing.

Grey’s Anatomy returns Jan 18 on ABC.

Coming Soon – Grey’s Anatomy Scoop

 If you’ve been paying attention this Season, you’ll notice Jackson and Maggie are growing closer. Given that their respective parents are Richard and Catherine, who are married, they are NOT blood relatives.

What’ll happen when Jackson and Maggie acknowledge their mutual feelings?

How will Richard and Catherine react to the pairing?

Of the soon to be couple, I think Maggie’s finding it most difficult to get her head around, as she’s only just discovered Meredith is her half sister, and now Jackson is the son of her Father Richard’s new Wife.

OTHER NEWS

Jo’s abusive (and very much estranged) husband Dr. Paul Stadler rocked up at the end of last week’s episode. Remember when Alex tracked him down at a medical conference and imagined various scenarios involving his demise in revenge for how Paul abused Jo? This Season, we hope this story arc will have women feeling more empowered.

Ain’t That A Kick In The Head

Go Big or Go Home
The arrival of Jackson’s grandpa, Harper Avery, to assess the damage done to his foundation’s bank balance more than to the hospital and to announce that he was pulling its funding.; led to one of Grey Sloan’s finest getting sacked. And, given Amelia’s diagnosis in the Season 14 premiere — coupled with her determination to keep her condition a secret — that first dismissed doctor’s head wasn’t necessarily the only one on the chopping block.

Bailey was fired, and it fell to Catherine to fix things.
Bailey needn’t have worried, as Harper Avery met with his maker, and no longer posed a threat to Grey Sloan or its staff.
Amelia contacts the Head of Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins who meets with her and Richard, and advises that she shouldn’t perform any more surgeries until he’s cleared her. It was time to tell her family she was to undergo surgery. After Maggie filled in Mer, she and Owen were by Amelia’s side as she was checked in as a patient.

When Mer’s former psychiatrist, Walter Karr, checked in, she took advantage of the opportunity to discuss with him her situation with Nathan and Megan. Meanwhile, Megan unloaded on Owen. As the episode drew to a close, Mer admitted to Nathan that she was angry because he was throwing away a gift she was never going to get, and encouraged him to show Megan that he loves her.

Get Off on the Pain

Meredith struggles to come up with a new plan for Owen’s sister. Jo makes a surprising choice regarding Alex, and Andrew’s sister’s controversial research leads to a shocking discovery. Megan turned down Nathan’s proposal because she thinks he’s still in love with Mer; Owen kissed Teddy but she refused to start anything with a married man. April told Jackson that she had to move out; and, while participating in research that Bailey was allowing Carina to conduct at Grey Sloan, Amelia learned that she had a brain tumor the size of a baseball.

Break Down the House

Meredith and the team are focused on helping Owen’s sister after her shocking return, and Amelia faces a conflict over a patient. Meanwhile, Bailey is forced to give Grey Sloan a facelift after the fire and the doctors are introduced to a few new faces that spice things up around the hospital.

Owen and Nathan were happily reunited with Megan; Ben, playing the role of Jo’s new Stephanie, helped get her back together with Alex; Maggie and Jackson took turns seeing which of them could be more awkward around the other; and Arizona rebounded from being ghosted by Eliza by hooking up with a beautiful stranger, who turned out to be DeLuca’s sister, Carina.

The ABC drama’s Oct. 26 episode, titled “Danger Zone,” will be told almost entirely in flashback and chronicle the events leading up to Megan’s (Abigail Spencer) kidnapping in Iraq. In addition to Spencer, the standalone hour will also feature Kevin McKidd’s Owen, Martin Henderson’s Nathan and Kim Raver’s Teddy.

Will the Spinoff Break Up Ben and Bailey?

Grey’s Anatomy star Jason George has joined the cast of the Grey’s firefighter-focused spinoff as a series regular, according to The Hollywood Reporter. George will continue to be a series regular on the upcoming Season 14 of Grey’s — debuting Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8/7c on ABC — until the untitled spinoff begins production; he’s also expected to pop back into Grey’s from time to time. Ben’s storyline this season will set up his transition to the new spinoff series, which centers on a tight-knit group of Seattle firefighters.

NEW HIRINGS

Matthew Morrison is confirming what many Grey’s Anatomy fans had suspected: We have not seen the last of Jo’s abusive husband. His character, Paul Stadler, will play “a big role” in the ABC drama’s upcoming 14th season.

Morrison made his Grey’s debut as Paul in Season 13’s penultimate episode when Alex tracked down the fellow doc at a medical conference and imagined various incendiary scenarios involving his arch-nemesis. Ultimately, Karev walked away without confronting him, although the two did share an awkward moment jockeying for a cab (during which Paul seemed to recognize Alex).

Timeless‘ Abigail Spencer has landed a multi-episode arc on Grey’s Anatomy as Owen’s presumed-dead sister Megan Hunt, a character previously portrayed by Bridget Reagan.

Grey’s kicks off Season 14 with a two-hour episode on Thursday, Sept. 28.

Grey’s Anatomy – Season 14 – Details

ABC on September 11 dropped the first TGIT-branded promo featuring actual footage from the new seasons of Grey’sScandal and How to Get Away With Murder, and the 60-second clip all but confirmed that Jackson and Maggie will become a thing in Season 14 (whether you like it or not). The trailer preview also hinted at a much lighter energy between Alex and Jo, and offered a first look at Timeless‘ Abigail Spencer as the alive and (seemingly) well Megan.

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.

Pick me, choose me, love me all over again if you ask me.

Maggie’s finally taken her late Mother’s  advice after losing Nathan to Meredith and Andrew humiliating her. Rumor has it Jackson has his sights – and his hands – on Maggie this Season.

Grey’s Anatomy star Jason George has joined the cast of the Grey’s firefighter-focused spinoff as a series regular, according to The Hollywood Reporter. George will continue to be a series regular on the upcoming Season 14 of Grey’s — debuting Thursday, Sept. 28 at 8/7c on ABC — until the untitled spinoff begins production; he’s also expected to pop back into Grey’s from time to time.

George joined the Grey’s cast back in Season 6 as Dr. Ben Warren, earning a promotion to series-regular status in Season 12. Ben’s storyline this season will set up his transition to the new spinoff series, which centers on a tight-knit group of Seattle firefighters. The spinoff, with Rosewood alum Jaina Lee Ortiz set as the female lead, was ordered straight to series back in May; no premiere date has been set.

Along with his role on Grey’s, George has had regular roles on MistressesOff the MapEve and the late NBC soap Sunset Beach.

Grey’s has no return date yet, but has been confirmed.
