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:

Listen what Mer says to Alex in ctv so excited for this episode Alex and Mer a go-go and Meder a go-go as Cri-Mer a go-go.PERHAPS GA COMES BACK!!!!!!!!


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

omg that is like sooo intense it's amazing!! OMG I cant wait!!!!
I hope they have a baby!!!! ahh soo cute!! :D :D:D


OMG!!!! i cant wait for this episode!:)
i love alex, and i cant wait for some MerDer love:)


Why were Mer with the red scrubs ? The red one isn't the oncology one ? O.o Anyway, just can't wait for MerDer moments. They're sooooooooooooooo cute togheter


@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

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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
