Grey's Anatomy Returns Thursday, and We Haven't Seen Anything Yet
If you've think you've seen the best Grey's Anatomy has to offer, well, you have no idea what they have planned in upcoming episodes, writes TV sleuth Kristin Veitch of

Truth be told, no one has any idea what's happening unless they're part of the inner circle. You see, what is coming up - when the show returns next Thursday with "Six Days" and heads into sweeps is apparently so intense that the Grey's Anatomy cast and crew are guarding the secrets as if their very lives depend on it.

Nevertheless, upon visiting the set yesterday, Veitch can tell you that not only was the press politely quarantined to a back corner of the set, worlds away from where the cast was shooting, but the actors' sound bites have been reduced to:

  • "There will be something new." - Chandra Wilson
  • "Something is coming up." - James Pickens, Jr.

And here's the thing. We love them for it. Because we just so happen to know a few deets on what the writers have planned for upcoming episodes when Grey's Anatomy returns and can tell you that you the upcoming twists and turns are not something for which you want Grey's Anatomy spoilers.

It's that good. And shocking.

Lest you think we're joking, I will share with you a few teases at the end of this article, for you who keep writing that you'll die if you don't get some info to tide you over to the new episodes.

But first, a few words about Chandra Wilson. Proving how contrary to her "nazi" character she is, Chandra spent half of the interview thanking the writer profusely for those words. Who does she think she is? Some kind of non-celebrity? It's truly odd â€" and refreshing â€" for an actress on the hottest show on television.

As for her Screen Actors Guild nomination, Wilson said:

"I am floating today. This means so much to me, you have no idea. You know, you pay your SAG dues for all those years, and then I guess they finally have to pay you back!"

When asked about what's coming up on the show, Chandra gave that ridiculous tease about the "new," then added, in a brow-raised whisper, as if she were actually giving something away, that there would be "two parts" to the big story arc they're working on.

Stop the presses!

James Pickens, Jr., was equally gracious about the cast's SAG nomination for Drama Ensemble, but really lit up when talking about Chandra.

"It's perfect that she got it. I love her. There are few people as talented and amazingly kind as she on this planet. I mean that," he said.

When asked whether he might be leaving the show if the Chief really were to retire, Pickens was certainly hopeful that it's not the case.

"Oh, I hope not! But you never know. All I know is that there's some really good stuff coming up for the Chief that will be quite intriguing."

And that's all. But for you chomping at the bit for some Grey's Anatomy gossip, here are the teases wecan give you about what's ahead:

  • Someone will get engaged.
  • Someone will get ... more than that.
  • Someone will die.
  • Someone we thought was dead will return.
  • Two people whose names both start with the letter "A" - Addisex! - will get even hotter.

And Grey's Anatomy will do the one thing that you'd think it never, ever, ever, ever could. Yes, that! Grey's Anatomy returns this Thursday on ABC. Are you counting the minutes or what?

I agree with you purplemerder.......I'm tired of speculating! People's Choice Awards are on CBS at 8p CST tonight; Golden Globes are Jan. 15 and SAG awards are on Jan 28. Grey's has nominations on all shows.


what awards purplemerder?


I don't think they would bring back Denny....The would be really soapy....anyway it hurts my head to much to speculate so I will just wait............but it is getting very hard to wait.
Don't forget to watch the awards tonight.

Avatar more thing...could any of this have anything to do w/ the new red headed doctor coming on soon? Didnt a previous article mention a McDonald doctor coming on....a jokester w/ red hair? I think the previous article back a month or so ago mentioned he's be coming on in


i think it will be a dream that Izzie is having...but not as in 'come back to life'. Returning people from the dead is so.....soapy (well put Sister Grey). Two more days!
Callie should be missing a period about now...oh no!!!! mc steamy or georges? i hope not ...again - too soapy not knowing who the father is.


Someone we thought was dead will return...... Please NO that is soooooooooooo soapy if this is true it is stupid and if the serie goes towards that I'll stop watching that's a fact.


I would like to see more of Kyle Chandler, the guy who took the bomb from Meredith. His scenes were so intense... the look in his eyes so compelling. It would be great to see Denny, too! I am counting the minutes until Thursday's show. Thanks for the teasers!


I cant wait....Who do you think will get engaged???I think Meredith and Derek...Who will die??I think Elis Grey or Georges father......Who will come back??I think Denny........And the last thing "Grey's Anatomy will do the one thing that you'd think it never, ever, ever, ever could. " I really dont know..............And what about you????


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.
