Grey's Anatomy Plans Flashback Episode

at . Comments

Several other shows on ABC mess with time (Lost, FlashForward, Desperate Housewives) so it makes sense that it's finally Grey's Anatomy's turn in one form or another.

The 15th episode of the season will flashback to when Richard and Ellis Grey were doctors in their late 20s. The scenes will likely shed light on Richard's current demons.

As we know, the Chief has returned to hitting the bottle after many years of sobriety. We get the impression this will continue to be a problem when the show returns.

The series is currently casting actors who resemble James Pickens Jr. and Kate Burton to play the young doctors. What do you think, or hope, these scenes will reveal?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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.
