Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: Raising Arizona

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."

yayy! im so glad arizona's going to stay. she's probably one of my favorite characters right now, especially with her personality balancing out her medical side.


i have 4 major theories about this “gift�
1. meredith will forgive the cheif for anything he did that hurt her 2. she'll let him give her off to Derek-he won't be the best man because since derek and mark are friends, mark will be the best man 3. with like a one in a million chance, it'll be mcbaby 4. Ellis' diares


Can I just give a Super Yay! for Jessica Capshaw staying with the show! Love her! Love her attitude! Love her with Callie!
Plus she is just awesome with Bailey. Bailey really needs a friend, poor love, I think Arizona will do a wonderful job at it!


its the diaries, theres no way a present would be a baby...everyone seems to think everyones getting pregnant. they think lexie's actress' pregnancy will be written in, they think theres a "Mcbaby" theres spoilers and rumors about christina and owen... alex spermed in a cup with izzie, i mean dear god i bet NONE of the characters has a baby. lol


tha's so freekin exciting! she's staying on the show! yeah! and im glad that mer is resolving all her crap with da cheif! that makes me less nervious that i know that nothing REALLY bad will happen!


Someone should tell Jessica Capshaw not to get too comfortable in her trailer as we all know what happened to the last attractive blonde who became a series regular :0


Holla, Arizona is staying YAY!!! I'm not a lesbian but I love the relationship Arizona has with Bailey, Sloan and of course Callie.


AiLing, I thought the same thing. It's not racist, you're just stating a fact.


X-ray photos of Richard's future grandchild could be Meredith's gift.


Not trying to be racist here, but if the Chief is Meredith's father...wouldn't Meredith have darker skin tone?
I know this is a TV show, but just pointing it out....

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.
