Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice to Cross Over ... Again!

at . Comments

Shonda Rhimes is anti-spoilers, but with a bus full of reporters visiting the set, she revealed a little scoop on the upcoming season: Grey's Anatomy star Chandra Wilson will cross over to the alternate Shonda world of Private Practice in the season's third episode.

Miranda Bailey will travel to L.A. to visit her former colleague Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh) and perform a "very interesting" medical procedure, Rhimes says.

Bailey, of course, has no intention of being shy about sharing her opinions about the events at Oceanside Wellness, the creator and producer of both shows adds.

The crossover of Chandra Wilson to Private Practice will continue the relatively fluid movement of characters between Grey's Anatomy and its spinoff Private Practice, which debuted in 2007.

Walsh has appeared on episodes of Grey's Anatomy the past two seasons, after leaving at the end of its third. This past season Patrick Dempsey's Derek Shepherd guest starred on Private Practice, as Taye Diggs and Audra McDonald did the reverse.

The new season of Private Practice will pick up only a few minutes after last season's finale, which ended with off-her-meds patient Katie (Amanda Foreman) injecting Violet (Amy Brenneman) with paralyzing drugs and about to steal her baby.

The season premiere will deal with the immediate aftermath, while episode two will jump ahead a few weeks, Amy Brenneman says. We can't wait to see who rescues Violet.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

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."
