Katherine Heigl Returning to Grey's Anatomy ... Briefly

at . Comments

We've got good Grey's Anatomy casting news and bad Grey's Anatomy casting news.

The good: Katherine Heigl will grace us with our presence on the January 21 episode.

The bad: That filmed before Heigl's maternity leave. So she'll be gone again soon.

That's right, Heigl's previous five-episode hiatus was granted by the network so that she could film her new movie. Her next hiatus comes as she adopted a baby girl from Korea.

For one week at least, it looks like estranged newlyweds Izzie and Alex are finally going to have a heart-to-heart ... or have it out. Perhaps a heated combination of the two.

The episode description says: "Izzie returns, hoping to reconcile with Alex." Don't hold your breath. The episode title:"I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked." Hmm ...

Izzie is Back

Alex and Izzie reunite January 21 ... but for how long?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.
