Grey's Anatomy Photo Preview: Hot Calzona Action!

at . Comments

This week, Grey's Anatomy airs its much-touted male-centric episode, "What Is It About Men."

ABC has released photo galleries and synopses for the following two weeks, giving us plenty of additional material to speculate about as the eighth season of the medical drama gets into full swing.

If you're a Calzona fan, or just enjoy the dynamic of the two of them raising a baby along with Mark, the sixth episode of the season looks like a must-see. Both of these sound quite good, really:

On October 13, the residents try their hardest to impress surgical great Catherine Avery - surgical legend, mother of Jackson's mother -when she arrives at Seattle Grace to perform a groundbreaking transplant.

Arizona and Alex find their hands tied with a confidentiality issue when a familiar patient comes into the ER. Love-struck Teddy throws a dinner party for the couples. Bailey makes a decision regarding her love life.

On October 20, a blackballed Meredith uses Lexie to spark Derek's interest in her patient's rare brain tumor case and, completely under the radar, gives guidance to April regarding Bailey's clinical trial.

Elsewhere, Alex and Teddy research alternative surgeries for a superficial patient, Callie and Cristina struggle with a very difficult spinal surgery, and Callie gets her wish - that Arizona and Mark form a friendship.

Of course, she then realizes it's more irritating than helpful. Careful what you wish for ...

Can I just say in reference to some of the comments made earlier - the reason people get so excited about seeing Callie and Arizona together is because in terms of prime-time representations of Lesbian couples, they are pretty much the only ones (forgive me I don't live in America, so I don't know the other ones, but I know without a doubt that Lesbian couples are underrepresented everywhere!). I cannot wait for this episode! And to the homophobes - YAWN - just go away it's boring now! Take your hatred and turn it into positive energy and start a community project or something productive like that! More Bailey WOOHOO :) Can't wait to meet Avery's mother, from the little I've seen she's gona be a v. interesting character! And I'm afraid to see I'm looking forward to some Mark/Arizona screen time (well really any JCap or Sara ;) - I think there's a good dynamic there!


Super excited for some Calzona action! It's about time to show them as a couple again. They need to have a storyline together (alone). Can't wait for the Poker face ep.


Here's a write up I read somewhere: Debbie Allen — who is currently directing an out-of-the-box episode of Grey's Anatomy that finds the Seattle Grace docs facing off against other hospitals on the baseball field — pops up onscreen in the October 13 episode as Dr. Catherine Avery, the mother of Jackson (Jesse Williams). Like Jackson's grandfather, Catherine shares ties to Meredith's past. "She knows the history of this hospital and knew Meredith's mother, Ellis," says Debbie. "There is a bit of tension with Jackson about what mom is there to do." No surprise there, considering mom's meaty mission is to perform a transplant on a guy diagnosed with cancer of the penis! "This episode will be talked about for a long time," assures Debbie, with a laugh. "The surgery scene was difficult. But it's not a laughing matter what's happening to this poor young man." Sounds like a really intriguing episode can't wait. Gonna go watch the first 4 again.


But according to another website I read too, Catherine Avery is Jackson's mother so we will have to wait til Thursday to watch this episode, looks like it's going to be a record breaker.


It says:- On October 13, the residents try their hardest to impress surgical great Catherine Avery - surgical legend, mother of Jackson's mother -when she arrives at Seattle Grace to perform a groundbreaking transplant I think I must correct myself, as in re-reading the above paragraph, it states (mother of Jackson's mother) which would indeed be his Grandmother, why not say she was his Grandmother instead of the mother of Jackson's mother, so if we read that correctly, she is indeed Harper Avery's wife. I think I'm with MJ_McBelle I'll wait for the episode to air, to find out if she is Avery's mother or his grandmother.


Wow! LOL! I thought I woke up today in Oct 2011... Had to check the calendar after that first comment! LOL... Oh yes! Calzona is a coming! I simply can't wait... I have been waiting for something from them since their vows! I love them and hope they get oodles of story time! Yey! I think the lady playing Catherine Avery is young looking and so if she is Jack's grandmama, Damn - I'm impressed! I vote for mama... Guess we'll just need to wait and see...


It said Catherine Avery = mother of Jackson's mother. So that means Jackson's grandmother since Harper Avery's Jackson's grandfather...she could be Harper Avery's wife. I'm confused. I guess I just have to wait for the episode.


...sorry for the double post!


I agree with @Aussie. I think zola will be the center of the confidentiality SL. I don't think it will be Adele though since Arizona and Alex work with kids.

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.
