Grey's Anatomy Season Premiere Clips: A Blessing in Disguise?

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy begins its eighth season Thursday night, and perhaps the most discussed, unresolved story arc heading into the fall is whether Cristina will keep her baby. The clip below sheds light on that.

As Meredith tries to put a positive spin on her career setback, she reflects on how it will allow her to spend more time with baby Zola. That's when Cristina makes this surprising, and honest, admission:

Follow the jump for three more new clips from Thursday night, in which:

  • Mark and Arizona debate a hot topic - and whether to make it interesting.
  • Teddy gives Henry a pep talk that he doesn't necessarily like the tone of.
  • Owen and the team survey the scope of the massive sinkhole disaster.

Also included below are clips from the premiere that we posted earlier in the summer. Enjoy them and comment below on what you think will transpire on this week's two-hour season premiere:

i hope Christina goes through with the abortion, i don't a cheesy politically correct resolution of abortions are bad and children are our live. i want her to stay true to her character. i am not even worried about Mer, this show is about her and this hospital is her home, she come back. i would understand if they did it at the end of the season then i would say they did it because the actress is leaving the show but since it's at the beginning, i am expecting the season being about her come back (hopefully a strong come back, i agree that they right her as kind of a mediocre surgeon and i just want to see her talent), and about her balancing motherhood with residency and reconciliation (or not) with Derek. can't wait for the season to start.


mark looks old cuz eric dane was probably using drugs at that time.


You know, I think this "interesting way" may be hat owen realises that she isn't ready and they go through with the abortion together that way. Maybe he hopes that over time she does do it. What other interesting way could they resolve the pregnancy issue? The already did the ectopic pregnancy. The only other way is that she is too late to abort. I just hope that they don't take forever to wrap up the story like her ptsd meltdown which on second viewing was a tad too much. I hope Mer comes back to surgery quickly. I always assumed that the show was about her years through internship and residency and how she can be the top of her class. Shonda writes her character to be sometimes the least talented.


i like it that they have a heavy excident in the episode, that brings the ga-fire back! wooo marks looks old in the clip with arizona im curious what christina is gonna do..


I really hope Cristina goes through with this abortion. She clearly has stated, right now, in season 8, like in many seasons that she does NOT want a kid. She wishes she did so her and Owen could be happy, but finally now that she has decided after splitting with Owen that she still doesn't want a kid, means that this is the best outcome for her.

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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
