New Grey's Anatomy-Private Practice Crossover to Feature Amelia, Derek and Lexie

at . Comments

It's official, fans: Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice are doing another crossover episode.

One that takes place after the alternate reality crossover, and features different characters.

Following the "If/Then" episode of Grey's - which takes place in alternate reality in which Ellis Grey (Kate Burton) alive and Addison (Kate Walsh) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are still married, Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) will head up to Seattle Grace for an episode slated for mid-February.

Derek and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) will then appear in the Private Practice hour of the crossover.

During last season's crossover event, Derek's sister also made the trip, venturing to Seattle Grace in hopes of reconciling with her estranged brother. The two had not been on speaking terms in many years.

Amelia turned to drugs while grieving the death of her father, who was shot and killed in front of her and Derek. Now that she's getting clean after an intervention, the siblings will have plenty to talk about.

Details are scant at the moment regarding the storyline of the multi-show arc, but you'll know as soon as we do. Thoughts on the upcoming crossover episodes? Fan? Not a fan? Exciting? Lame? Discuss!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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.
