Mandy Moore to Reprise Grey's Anatomy Role

at . Comments

The traumatized doctors of Seattle Grace Mercy West will be trying their hardest to get back to normal when Grey's Anatomy returns for its seventh season next month, but reminders of the murderous tragedy they collectively witnessed will be everywhere.

Specifically, Mandy Moore.

The singer and actress, who played a memorable role as a patient in May's two-part season finale, will be returning to the show in the sixth episode of the new season.

From MerDer time bombs to a shaken-up Cristina and a couple we know getting married, the new season will clearly be influenced by the last. How does Mandy fit in?

Mandy's character, Mary, was the unfortunate patient coping with a colostomy bag when called upon to assist Bailey in her ultimately unsuccessful, desperate struggle to save the life of gunned-down Mercy West transplant Charles Percy (Robert Baker).

No word yet if Mary's cute hubby Bill (Cougar Town star Ryan Devlin) will be returning as well, but we're interested to see what her new guest stint means for the doctors - Bailey in particular. Will it just bring back haunting memories of that fateful day?

Are you excited to see Moore return to Grey's Anatomy? Discuss below.

I really like Mandy and have loved her for years. I'm a big fan, and so glad she is coming back. I think she will be a trigger for Bailey, but I think together they can help their characters heal and move on from this. Bailey is a strong person and it was just insane to see her break like she did in the finale. Seeing how she can't fix everything!!!

I think the return of Mary will have huge issues for Bailey. A good excuse for the counsellor to stay on

I'm OK with it if Calzona and Meredith-Lexie and Derek get a lot of screen time! Especially Calzona now that J.Cap is soon about to go on maternity leave!

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.

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.
