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

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

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)
