Grey's Anatomy Episode Synopsis: "Let The Bad Times Roll"

by at . Comments

As the eighth season winds down, two weeks from now, the May 3 episode of Grey's Anatomy will be called "Let The Bad Times Roll." Think that sets the tone for an uplifting, magical hour of television?

We have our doubts, as the Seattle Grace residents agonize over their oral boards, reliving every answer they gave during their exams ... and Catherine tells Richard that one of his residents has failed.

Who do you think came up short, and might it mean the end of a doctor's tenure at the hospital? Moreover, is it tied to an open-ended contract situation for one of the core cast members?

AZ and Mark

Meanwhile, Arizona's close childhood friend comes to Seattle Grace for medical help; the doctors work on a patient who is missing one third of his skull; and Julia asks Mark to start a family with her.

Debbie Allen returns as Dr. Catherine Avery, William Daniels guest stars as Cristina's Examiner and Jordan Belfi begins a multi-episode arc as Nick. Share your comments and theories with us below.

I think it's Christina who fails.. it's the writers way of shocking us.


I think if any cast members leave that Debbie Allan is recieving a series regular status contract.


faces=>uh oh. if arizona is facing trouble, i hope mark's not going to be all in that business as usual. julia, julia, julia. you had such possibilities. now you're just another kid-crazy female. sigh.


Julia asks Mark to start a family with her? What is this, they have to be televisions most MIA couple, who would ever want to see them have kids together?! Come on Slexie!


Jordan Belfi? Perhaps someone like Cristina - talented, career focused guy of her age? New beginning? Somehow I see Owen and Teddy leaving the hospital, I think each of them might consider going back as field surgeons.


Those faces scare me.


Juliaa?? Family???? No way can Lexie just tell him already?


I can't get rid of the feeling that Grey's Anatomy is coming to kind of an end. These last episodes might be the last ones we see the current cast.
