The Grey's Anatomy Spoilers We Know Of

by at . Comments
Shonda Rhimes Creates, ProducesIf Shonda Rhimes (right) had her way, there would be no Grey's Anatomy spoilers. The show's creator and executive producer is notoriously secretive about future plot lines, determined to build suspense and preserve the show's integrity. But we've picked up a few things since the Season 2 finale last May, and with Season 3 around the corner, here's a brief spoiler list... along with our take.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-- Sources say the premiere of Season Three will be called "Time Has Come Today," taking its name from a song by The Chambers Brothers. Shonda won't divulge how much time has passed in the Grey's Anatomy world between the Season Two finale and the September resumption, but she does state in her blog that Grey's "is odd in that an episode may air that is actually in real time only moments after the last episode ended." So who knows whether we will pick up where we left off, or sometime a little later.

-- Despite leaving the internship program following the tragic death of Denny Duquette (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Dr. Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl) remains a principal cast member in Season Three. Whether she reclaims her job after the impropriety that took place in the finale is another story. As for Morgan, he'll be coming back from the dead... in a new series created by Rhimes.

The Grey's Anatomy Spoilers We Know Of -- Sara Ramirez (left) who appeared near the end of Season 2 as sassy Dr. Callie Torres, has been promoted and is now a full-time cast member. The Mexican-American actress, who plays the love interest of Dr. George O'Malley (T.R. Knight) becomes the latest component of what many believe is TV's most diverse and talented cast.

-- As we've talked about several times, a legendary guest star will "Grace" our favorite Seattle Hospital this fall. Diahann Carroll, 72, the first African-American woman to ever star in a TV series, will join the cast, creator Rhimes confirms. As for what her role will be, theories range from an administrative counterpart to Dr. Webber (James Pickens, Jr.) to the mother of Dr. Burke (Isaiah Washington).

-- Another fan favorite guest star (one who isn't dead) will make his return. Folks clamoring for more "McSteamy" will apparently get their wish as Eric Dane, who guest starred as Dr. Mark Sloan in Season 2, will be recoming back to SGH. The charming, self-destructive doc, whose affair with Addison left the Shepherds' marriage in shambles, should provide us with greater insight into Derek's back story, and may influence the show's famous love triangle (or, what some are calling a quadrangle by this point).

-- Chris O'Donnell (Finn Dandridge) will return to the set of Grey's Anatomy in Season Three, although it is not clear for how many episodes. Last season, the star originally signed on for eight episodes, but various reports state he may have upped that total. It's also unclear if that count includes his first appearance, in which he got a whole 10 seconds of screen time.

That's all for now, but we'll pass along more if we come across any. Let us know via our forums if there's anything you've heard, and be sure to keep in touch on all the latest Grey's Anatomy news via our blog. Thanks!

I LOVE GREY'S ANATOMY!!! i hope burke and christina stay together cause there just so amazing together. shes not cold, shes honest. mer/der better get together for at least a little while. i hope addison realizes she is not wanted and flies far far away. i love george but i hate callie and i hope he ends up with olivia. i hope izzie and alex get together because its destiny and theyre perfect!!!

I'm really glad Izzie is back! yeah she's my fav. Her life had always been sucks since her younger days but that didn't stop her from being lively and so full of life but I really hope she learn her lesson after Denny's death. I love to see her interact with Mere more. From what I had seen Mere can have a few laugh and smile a lot when she's around Izzie. Mere/Der always- they belong together. Addison should let go what that is no longer hers. I think Christina would also learn how to express her feeling more for Burke. Seeing Izzie lost her man had finally open her eyes. Still not sure just what was Alex feeling towards Izzie. There's still something unsolved with these two. As for Callie , I see she's too strong for George and quite possessive seeing they're still new in their relationship that can be suffocating. George need to know she's not a rebound girl.

season three looks incredibly great. i cannot wait for it to beign. mer&&der shoudl continue to have problems bcuz thats what makes the whole show so interesting. and as for cristina...shes not cold shes just misunderstood. sure shes not the friendliest person but being with burke is making her open up and learn to show feelings. and her and burke are total opposites making them perfect for eachother. alex and izzy well their destined to be together, and i think its very in practical for her to be let back into the hospital after all that she did but im glad that she is! and george..poor george. hopefully him and callie will end up together and he can learn to love someone other than mer. && hopefully mark will come and whisk adisson somwhere far far away from SGH. nobody wants her there anyways. =]

Meredith has to pick McDreamy!!!Addison should just take off and let everyone be!! As for christina, Burke has to dump her, I mean, come on, she's sooooooo cold!

I really wish that Merediths panties somehow end up where Addison finds them, guesses they are Merdiths and asks her about them (mer says theyre hers) Addison and Derek have a huge fight and when McSteamy comes back Addison goes with him. Another story would be (yes I know this happened with cristina & Burke) but anyways Mer gets pregnant from that night at the prom, and has a bit of morning sickness and addison notices (seeing as shes a gynocologist/neonatal whatever..) and checks her out (secretly taking a paternity test) and finds that shes pregnant and its dereks baby (wouldn't that cuase a HUGE HUGE HUGE thing!

I want many problems for Preston and Cristina. She's so cold, a girl without heart.
MerDer deserve to be happy. They are amazing together.
Finally Mark! He's perfect for Addison.
Izzie deserves a great man.

what about Burktina? Do they stand a chance?
I would love it to go on, for they make such
an odd but wonderful couple to watch, much
more real and relatable than Mer/Der couple.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
