Katherine Heigl to Return For January 21 Episode

at . Comments

From the looks of this photo from ABC, it looks like Katherine Heigl will actually be gracing us with our presence on Grey's Anatomy the week after next. Who'd have guessed!

It looks like separated newlyweds Izzie and Alex are finally going to have a heart-to-heart, too. The downside? Stevens may be stopping by only briefly before vanishing again.

The episode description says:

"After learning of Richard's drinking problem, Derek confronts him for the sake of his friend and the hospital; Izzie returns, hoping to reconcile with Alex, and tensions run high between Teddy, Cristina and Owen in the aftermath of Cristina's startling confession."

The January 21 episode of Grey's Anatomy is called "I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked." What do you think happens between Alex and Izzie then? You tell us ...

More photos and sneak peeks from this episode as well as next week's crossover event, "Blink," will follow soon! For now, share your thoughts on the coming episodes!

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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
