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.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Meredith: You're me.
Amelia: What?
Meredith: You're me before Derek. I can be here for you. I can do this. I get you. I can be a twisted sister for you. Just tell me how do you want to play this?

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)
