Grey's Anatomy Photo Preview: "Take the Lead"

at . Comments

April calling the shots. That's a concept that's going to require some adjusting to - for April and everyone else.

In the third episode of the fall (September 29, one week after next Thursday's two-part premiere), The Chief makes a big career-changing decision, Cristina and Owen try to find normalcy, and April continues to struggle in her new role as Chief Resident, which was almost a foregone conclusion.

Meanwhile, the fifth year residents are at last given their first solo surgeries, only to find out that even the most routine procedures aren't always easy. The title of this episode, fittingly, is "Take the Lead."

Stills from the episode appear below. If you missed them, check out our season premiere photos as well!

I doubt Owen get's Meredith her job back because its not Richard that wanted to fire her. The board ruled on that. Richard will do the fatherly thing and take the fall for Meredith. I am glad she is back in scrubs. She shouldn't have been fired. They have done far worse things on Grey's and no one got fired. Izzie cut LVAD's, Cristina didn't call Teddy her attending and was going to do a solo surgery last season and didn't get reprimanded. I just hope Derek gets over being irrational.

Ok so we think that Richard takes the fall for Mer, but where does it say she looses Zola? The pictures clearly show that she is back in scrubs, but we haven't seen the first two epps so maybe the promo is a teaser, maybe she is supposed to be fired but there is a but.... and why would she loose Zola? Don't know where this is coming from...not long to wait people.... And isn't Shondra committed to the whole adoption story line....

There are also some photos of MerDer in Mer's kitchen for 8.03. Mer's wearing slippers and is doing laundry. Der doesn't look very happy. I don't think there'll be any McDreamy moments at the beginning of S8, or even ofr a few episodes. :(((((((((

I don't think Cristina would have to ask for Mer to get her job back. If the Chief takes the fail, the condition would be that Mer is reinstated.

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.
