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!

I'd love to see how Yang interacts with the SW practice...that would be funny.

I think it sounds interesting. However, I thought that it would be smarter to have Derek, (possibly) Meredith and Mark during the time of which there was an intervention. I mean, I guess a follow up with Amelia should be interesting, but with Lexie there, I'm going to assume it's for one of their patients from SGMWH.

Here`s a great `if/then` idea. Season one episode 1, Cristina yang crashes on her motorcycle and ran over by a car. She will be brought to Seattle Grace via helicopter and will be Meredith`s first patient. She (christina) will be declared brain dead by Derek and Issie,George and Alex will assist Burke in her organ transplant that will save a lot of people. Then no more annoying, arrogant and heartless Cristina Yang in the future!!!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
