Nothing particularly new or groundbreaking here, but in case you haven't seen or heard, and want a general idea of what we can expect in the first three episodes of the new year, we've posted ABC's official press releases about them for you below.

With titles like "Wish You Were Here," "Sympathy For the Devil," and "Stairway to Heaven," it looks like the writers are planning something big. Or listening to a lot of classic rock.

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.
