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.

In the Hunt

We're also compiling promotional photos for "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Stairway to Heaven," which we will be posting soon. Follow the jump for the episode synopses ...

Wish You Were Here," January 8 (5.11)

IWant MALLIE! Enough with stupid little grey!


Kevin McKidd will be on Ellen DeGeneres show on Jan. 5th!


Personally, I like the fact that the next few episdoes are like 'change of heart'. It is like reaacting a large part of the story line that people who have read the book. Plus it is one of my favorite books! I hope that there are more MerDer moments, especially with Derek's mom in town. I wonder if Derek ever told his mom about Meredith and that he and Addison split.


This would not be the first time Shonda took material from another show. Back in season 1and 2 there were reports that Greys is totally from a show in europe. ( I just can't remember the name right now).


Maybe Cristina needs to see Dr. Wyatt.


If George has to leave, could they at least give us George fans more of him before he does? I am so leaving with him, scr*w Shonda.


Izzie&Denny=Brain tumor.


Happy new year!!!

Ooh, can't wait.

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.
