Grey's Anatomy Scoop: The Interns Speak Out!

at . Comments

The new crop of interns are already leaving their mark on Grey's Anatomy Season 9.

In "Love Turns You Upside Down" (December 6), we'll be treated to an episode told largely from their perspective. A week later, in "Run, Baby, Run," three of them (Shane, Jo and Stephanie) attend Bailey's wedding.

These fresh faces are making their presence felt. The new fab five sat down with TV Guide and previewed these events, as well as what's to come for their respective characters. Here's what we can expect from ...

3 New Faces

Shane (Gaius Charles, left) is assigned to April and is lectured on bedside manner after he extracts a growth from a woman's private parts. "It's gross and humiliating, but some good comes out of it," Charles says.

Adds the former Friday Night Lights cast member and NCIS guest star from last May, "Shane and April form a friendship. We see the interns pairing up with the doctors [and] romantic stuff happens."

Heather (Tina Majorino, right), Alex's one-night stand, is put on Meredith's service and gets caught in the middle of a nuclear fight between Meredith and Derek, which sparks memories of her broken home.

"Meredith asks Heather to do some research on a procedure to help Derek's hand," says the 27-year-old Bones and Big Love vet. "It blows up, and Derek ends up screaming at Meredith and Heather."

Jo (Camilla Luddington, center) "cannot stand him," referring to you-know-who. "Alex gets under her skin as no one else has done and calls her 'Princess.'" Still, you can't deny there's a connection between them.

Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton) is dubbed "Grumpy" by Cristina, then at Bailey's wedding can barely form a sentence in the presence of her secret crush ... whoever that is. Your guess is as good as ours!

Expect them to share an intimate encounter. Says Hinton, "It's definitely charged."

Leah (Tessa Ferrer) is pitted against Steph when both are assigned to Cristina and must monitor a set of babies. "It gets out of control and puts our jobs in jeopardy," Ferrer tells TV Guide.

We'll also see the extent of Leah's heartbreak from getting screwed over by Alex (yes, the man gets around that hospital like it's his job these days). "She's ­really pining after him," she admits.

Who's your favorite new intern so far? Who would you like to see more - and less - of in Season 9? Do you think they're being integrated well with the regular cast? Sound off in the comments below!

so far the only new intern I like is Jo, she reminds me a lot of Lexie, in that she is kind, caring and compassionate with her patients and doesn't mind telling someone what she think whether it be another intern or an attending


the intern storyline is much better than angry Arizona , non-sense lawsuit,depressed derek,
they're fun, passionate, sometime a little silly, it's not so bad at all


I love Jo and i think i can not wait to see what goes on between her and my boy Alex as it seems as though he is ready to "settle down". On another topic i wish Christina and the Chief would get back together i mean i really like Christina but i never thought she would love again and she did and i love her with him more so than the rest


Why would Bailey invite three interns to her wedding?
I guess these are the chosen three that will be in S10, but to expand the cast again to its previous size seems really odd. I'm still muddling them all up.
Derek and his fiery temper is enough to scare anyone.


I want Jo, Shane and Stephanie to stay on the show. I don't really care for the others.


Hmmm. The new interns... I don't know about that episode. Sure, I need time to get to know the interns, but not in an episode about them. Anyway, here's what I think about the storylines: *Shane: I like Shane, but I'm a Japril shipper. DON'T KILL JAPRIL SHONDA!
*Heather: Derek fighting with Meredith...? Why? She is only trying to help him. I like Heather, she's cool and I feel bad for her broken hom :(
*Jo: If Jo is Alex's new love interest, I won't mind. I know it's an unpopular opinion, but Jo is good for Alex, I think. I hope, though, that their relationship will not start from sex. We had enough of that.
*Stephanie: I hope Stephanie's crush is not Jackson. But I heard he'll be sleeping with someone else than April, so... If that happens I'll hate Stephanie! :(
Leah: Alex making Leah's heart break. I don't like Leah, but think about it... Maybe Alex will try, you know, to apologize to her and this stuff and we'll see Alex's good side. Anyway, I love Grey's and I'll keep watching no matter what. Oh and Daron, are you new to Grey's? I think you hate the half of the MAIN characters.


The new interns are totally without screen presense. When the original greys cast started each and everyone had that something special that made you want to watch them. This new group is like watching milk is without taste, lacks the group cohesion that was ever present with the original cast, and in my mind has neither dramatic or comedic talent that would draw one in to their very weak story lines. The writers would do well to spend their energies on what is left of the original cast and further develope their story lines that define them not only as attendings but as people.


Has intern Leah appeared in an episode? I can't place her, especially having been with Alex.


I Still hate Cristina it was very selfish of her to sacfice her unborn child to be a full time surgeon BO0!


I dont see why is everyone hateing on Jo the intern she's a little annoying but shes a better than April. A LOT BETTER!

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.
