Report: Two-Hour Grey's Anatomy Event to Begin Planned Kate Walsh Spinoff

Although the plot is still shrouded in Shonda Rhimes-style secrecy, both TV Guide and Variety magazine have discovered some new dirt on the planned Grey's Anatomy spin-off, and how it may begin.

Report: Two-Hour Grey's Anatomy Event to Begin Planned Kate Walsh Spinoff
Variety says that "My Favorite Mistake," a two-hour Grey's Anatomy episode setting up an Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) spin-off, is scheduled to air this spring.

In addition to opening the door for Addison to possibly leave the halls of Seattle Grace, "My Favorite Mistake" will also introduce guest star Taye Diggs - as well as Hector Elizondo (Chicago Hope) as Callie's father.

The episode will be directed by Michael Grossman, who was last behind the camera for "Great Expectations" - the terrific episode in which both Burke and George popped the question to their respective ladies.

An exact air date for "My Favorite Mistake" has not been announced by ABC, but the episode will serve as the 22nd and 23rd Grey's Anatomy episodes (out of 24) in the current Season 3.

This is all very interesting news. Is the door also open for Addison to remain at Seattle Grace if viewer response to the episode is negative? Or is it a done deal that she's gone? Previous reports suggest the latter, but this makes it sound slightly less certain.

In any event, Grey's Anatomy returns with new episodes in two weeks, Thursday, March 15. That episode will be titled "Scars and Souvenirs."

Nossa, com uma médica dessa, eu ficaria doente todo dia ^^
linda demaissssssssssssssssssssssssssss!


does anybody know the name of the song that
was being played in the background and the dr was about to operate on the racies guy with the swatzika sign on his chest?


so does anyone know when the season 4 premier is coming for greys anatomy? I think I have watched all three seasons twice since the finale of season three.


OMG If addison leaves the show will neva eva be da same agen!!!!!!!!!!
i guess it wood be cool if theres a show bout her but still then GA wont be as good.....
sniff sniff...DONT GOOOO ADDISON!!!!


I dont want addison to leave shes my favorite character she cant leave greys antomy,it will have no sense with out her being in it.


Ashton, the young lady playing the "surrogate" for the Bartender and his partner? She was recently seen on NBCs Friday Night Lights as the love interest of Smash (school's running back).


I think that I would love to see all the new (yet old faces) characters. They are all familar faces and I love the make up of all of them together I think it would be a great add to the Grey's anatomy Saga a spin off with plenty of open opportunities for guest apperences on both ends. I think that greys needs new charaters to spice things up a bit I must admitt as much as I love mc dreamy and Merideth together the story line is dull and almost wish them to move on now!


I really hope they don't do a spin off. I too tuned into the spin off episode and was truly disappointed. What i really want to happen is derek and meredith to break up that would be so great. I wish she would have drowned and gotten rid of her come on now how realistic is it for someone to have no pulse for what seems like days and not even have a little brain damage. just not realistic at all.


Yeah, I just saw the "2 hour event" and it completely sucked. I didn't know that they were going to try to run a spin off before tonight, but after seeing it, it was obvious that they were testing the waters for an Addison's Anatomy.. The episode gave Addison, Taye Diggs and The Lady From Judging Amy more air time than the main characters of the show. And each new character was as boring as dirt. I wasn't even sure what the heck I was watching half the time! It was boring, uninteresting drivel. Bleh spinoffs! My suggestion: save the spinoff's money and efforts into making Grey's more fresh and less predictable, like back in season 1.


hang on... so if kate leaves GA, - I mean, If Addison leaves SGH, to start a new job somewherelse, there's going to be a new show focusing on Addison? like, she'll keep playing her character? mixed feelings about that! i guess that could be good - another good show to watch, focusing on Addison - she rocks. but then Grey's will go downhill... not so good.


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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
