Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: Raising Arizona

by at . Comments

Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly has some quality Grey's Anatomy spoilers and gossip in his weekly Q&A today. Give this a read and then comment away ...

Q: Is there any news as to whether Jessica Capshaw will be back on Grey's Anatomy next season?

A: Not only will she be back, she's finalizing a deal to become a full-fledged series regular! Holla if you're a lesbian!

Q: Will Meredith and Thatcher finally resolve their issues on Grey's Anatomy?

A: Not exactly. She, will, however reach a new understanding with the Chief. She even gives him a gift. A pretty major gift. A gift I have a hunch will play a big role next season (if the story is going where I think it's going).

Q: Can you give me some Grey's Anatomy scoop about Mer-Der? I'm tired of hearing about Izzie!

A: You're in luck! Sharon Lawrence, who guest stars this week as Izzie's trailer-trash mom, had some interesting things to say about working alongside Katherine Heigl...

For starters, they didn't get a chance to speak to each other prior to rehearsing their first scene, which called for Lawrence to practically tackle Heigl in her hospital bed.

"The first thing I did was barge in and hug her," Lawrence explains with a laugh. "I could tell right away she was present and not guarded. We got to know each other as the day went on, because we would have time to talk about other things while we were waiting to work."

"It's an odd thing we do for a living. Sometimes you have to get close to somebody right away. That's why I was grateful for her openness and warmth, and it's because of that that we were able to make physical and emotional choices that really conveyed the intimacy these two had."

"She is such an honest and open actress. There is not an untrue bone in her body as an actor, and it made my job so easy."

Despite all the media attention focused on Katherine Heigl's uncertain Grey's Anatomy future, Lawrence insists she came into the job with no preconceived notions about her TV daughter.

"I would never judge a situation from the outside," she says.

"I've been around long enough to know that the outside does not have all the facts. All I care about is that the storyline is served well."

and Janelle Meuller... if the Chief and Ellis had a child, it would NOT be a sibling of Lexie's because Ellis was not her mother, and Meredith and Lexis share a father, not a mother... seriously!!!!

ok... anybody saying that the Chief could possibly be Meredith's father are stupid!!! Just plain STUPID!!! In case you all never watched the earlier episodes, Meredith's father shows up at the hospital one day during Season Three and he is shown being very clumsy, and Izzie and Cristina both comment on how much Meredith is like him... plus the skin colour... duh! and we all know that Meredith is giving Ellis's diaries to the Chief... we dont know if its this "gift" but its certainly going to make him very happy, and he deseves to have a little happiness and memory of Ellis. and i am not sure, but i think that one of the characters will become pregnant (though its said so often...) Who will it be????

one more thing,do you honestly think that the preganacy was planned..come on its Meredith.

okay 4 things.
1.The cheif can't be merediths father because she was 5 years old when he had the affair with her mother.
2.meredith is preganant patrick dempsey said so in an interveiw that there was going to be a baby sometime in season 5.
3.What else would play a big role next season.hello!MCBABY!
4.WHERE THE HELL DID YOU HEAR THAT CRISTINA IS PREGANANT!GET REAL!

Food for thought: If you remember part two of the eipsode where Meredith drowned, the beginning scene opened with the team all but having given up on Meredith, the Chief yelled he
couldn't because "she's my......."
Fortunately there is probably a twist that none of us will
guess, but hopefully be pleasantly suprised.

What if the diaries reveal a child... of Mer's mom and the chief. Perhaps a boy who was given up for adoption. Could the gift by a long lost son for the chief? And a new sibling for Mer and Lexie?

In my humble opinion: 1)Meredith's gift to the Chief is her mother's diaries, which will reveal that after he left her she had a baby, which she gave up for adoption; hence, Meredith's half sibling. 2) The wedding has been moved up because of Izzie's condition as Meredith stated. It will be Izzie and Alex, or Lexie and Sloan that get married next week.
Derek and Meredith will elope. 3)Just like Miranda Bailey, Meredith and Lexie's pregnancies will be worked into the script. 4) T.R. Knight will leave the show to test the waters in other areas and find himself not too successful, thus returning George full time to the cast. 5) Since Seattle-Grace is still without a Cardio Surgeon, Burke will return as a special guest, to test audience response, then permanently.

It's definitely Ellis' diaries and I don't know if you remember but a couple of months ago Ausiello had a spoiler about a biracial actor being cast for the show. Ausiello thought that it could be Ellis and Richard's long lost child. Maybe Richard will learn that Ellis gave up their child after he left her and he'll try to track him or her down...

Speculations about babies and pregnancies EVERYWHERE! lol The gift is the box of diaries folks. Holla for Arizona!! She is great with callie and bailey, and a great addition to the show.

i think the gift mer gives the chief is all the diaries from her mum

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Sometimes we have to get lost. To find each other.

Meredith

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."
