Grey's Anatomy Promo: "Sympathy For the Parents"

at . Comments

Below is a promo for this Thursday's all-new Grey's Anatomy episode, called "Sympathy For the Parents." Looks like an Alex-centric episode on tap this week at Seattle Grace.

When his younger brother, Aaron, shows up with a hernia, it's up to Alex to get Bailey's approval for pro bono surgery. The reunion is more complicated than that, of course.

Aaron discloses that his family has not heard from Alex since he arrived in Seattle, and parts of Alex's past, long kept secret, are revealed to his friends and fellow doctors.

Our guess is that there will be physical and emotional blows flying left and right. There's plenty of other non-Karev drama taking place this week too, as you can see below ...

We'll have photos and sneak peeks up soon, but for now, here's the first promo:

I can't wait til this episode. We dont know as much about alex as the others, and now we get that chance to get to know more of his past self, and family issues. I hope callie and arizona get resolved soon. it would be interesting to see if there's more to why Arizona doesnt want kids than just the worrying she mentioned in another episode. haha, teddy got her mind blown. that's a point for the sloan method. i'm happy they've been bringing light back to the whole callie mark friendship lately. i love that they show that two people of opposite sex can be friends without any sexual happenings...

Call me meredith

@ana114, Word. While I love the Cris/Mer friendship...cases like this, it bugs me. They are not the same person. Why is it so hard to have a positive twist? I have very low expectations in this subject. Lots of talk but no payoff. How I'd wish that SR kept her mouth shut and not kill the excitement.

Meredith don't listen to Cristina, have a baby with Derek, you ain't you mother.

People don't get your hopes up, it probably 2 second of MerDer. I psych to see Alex's brother, it has been long overdue.

Looks like an awesome episode! A great change to bring up Alex's past.. and excited about Derek asking Meredith to have a baby :) :)

It looks like this episode might be getting back up to the old Grey's standards. Some MerDer drama, Cristina and Meredith friendship, Sloan having sex with people and telling Callie about it, and drama with characters families. The Alex family idea is great because he is the most underdeveloped character of the "Fab 5" and this will really help develop him. I can't wait!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
