Shonda Rhimes Previews Grey's Anatomy Valentines Day Episode

at . Comments

The last new episode of Grey's Anatomy was an all-inclusive holiday bonanza. Next month, the show will get into a festive mood once again in its first-ever Valentine’s Day episode.

The big plans? Derek and Owen have a double date in mind. Cute, right?

It might be, except that “Meredith is not a Valentine’s Day girl, and neither is Cristina,” creator Shonda Rhimes tells TV Guide, “so the guys will try to force them to enjoy the holiday.”

Celebrating Valentine's Day more willingly? Callie and Arizona!

The two "go out on a date and exchange gifts at four o’clock because they know they’ll be in the ER in the evening,” then play cupid for Bailey and anesthesiologist Ben Warren.

The new character, played by hunky actor Jason George, will (according to Shonda) give our workaholic Nazi “a little bit of lovin’” and we can't wait to see how that plays out!

Looks like romance is on the not-too-distant horizon for Bailey!

What about for intriguing newcomer Dr. Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams)?

“I think he’s adorable, but he’s not ready for that,” says Rhimes. “There’s a sense of the audience not knowing where he’s going to land, and I’d like to keep it that way awhile.”

Turning our attention to Izzie-less Alex, Rhimes hints that he’ll “find his own way to amuse himself quite adequately.” NOTE: By amuse himself, she means with another person.

Speaking of Izzie, what's the deal with all the coming and going? Is Katherine Heigl's schedule and her character's future something anyone is even clear on at this stage?

“As writers, we’ve had to be creative with having Katie for such a limited time,” Shonda said of Heigl. “Maternity leave is maternity leave, and it’s a choice I fully support.”

Rhimes adds that she doesn't know when Heigl will be back full time. As you probably know, Alex hooks up with someone this week - at least the new promo suggests it!

Dimples, you make me laugh. I also think that Lexie and Jackson are a good idea. I want manwhore Mark back. Or to find a woman woman. Maybe Teddy? I read that CL is natural seems like it's Lexie changing her hair color. I think that jobless, cancer-ridden wife shouldn't abandon husband either. She did married will.


From what I`ve read its not Callie that goes blonde:)


the valentine's day episode is supposed to happen after alex one night stand and yet shonda says that he will amuse himself without izzie.. another one night stand?


The only thing missing is Burke showing up and grabbing Christina and Mc Crazy trying to fight for her but her heart has always been with Burke so he wins. In his sexy, arrogant way he carrys her out of the hospital.


The Shonda Rhimes interwiev is very interesting because she speaks about the couple of GA .The last episode by krysta Vernoff ,i don't like me for only one minuts.Now i don't see the time the duoble dates between Mer and Der as Owen and Cri.Calzona is very hot couple ,Bailey is on the rock and Alex without Izzie is the best,i don't want be back Heigl, i prefer Alex with other character.I hope only that Shonda shows a VALeNTINE'S DAY AS A REAL VALENTINE'S DAY must be ,as romantic and hot moments without paranoid thoughts or worries.


I got to say I like the idea of Lexie and Avery that would something to watch.


The anetheist turns up earlier doesn't he when an anesthetic fails? To see bailey doing the hot romance stuff will be so weird, can't imagine her doing the nasty nasty in the on call room. LOL


****************** I made a mistake, must check what I write here I read it was LEXIE who gets the trip to the hairdressers. Sorry for my mistake. I also think KH will be the special guest star in S7. I just can't see her being a SGMWH doc anytime soon with an occasional reappearance


I read elsewhere that callie goes blond and Mark and Sl R are involved too. Interesting that yet again Avery is being highlighted by Shonda. I'm just waiting for him to have the 'he's joining the cast' announcemenT. But hooray for MerDer and romance. I guess all the tension we've been told there's going to be between them doesn't stop the loving. Hooray


YEY can`t wait to see Callie and Arizonas date, and their gifts for each other:)
