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!

I like all the interns. Better than some of the doctor. Please dont pair Shane whiny April. Or Jo with man whore Avery or bipolor Alex.


SPOILER... Actually, Stephanie's crush might also be Avery, I've read he will hook up with someone else as him and April are not "exclusive". Must be either Jackson or Owen.


i still need to get to know the interns but i don't think there should be an episode based on their perspective.


I know every young actor/actress need the chance,but Shonda should know we spend the time to watch GA not for those interns
Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton)& Cristina have the same fair style , the same personal taste in man!!


Stephanie's crush might be on Owen. You haven't seen them interact yet and that would be interesting to see Cristina's reaction to "Grumpy" acting a fool over him. Maybe it'll be enough to get the ball rolling on their reunion. And I realize that a lot of people don't like Crowen, but I do. Cristina is strong with medicine, but emotionally she's still pretty fragile. I think season eight took her to gates of hell what with the abortion fallout, Owen's cheating and the plane crash. Dr. Thomas helped her back a little. Or it could be Jackson. That would be kind of funny to see how April reacts, even though she and Jackson aren't a couple. Just horny attendings with some sort of odd sex thing going on. Either way, it should prove interesting and entertaining.


At this point the show looks like a soap...

i really wish people would stop saying its boring. i would agree that the show has lost some of its DRAMA LUSTER but if you really loved the show and its characters you wouldnt call it boring.. it would still be interesting to you, and a lot of the reason it doesnt have as much drama is because they've been, done that, and invented most of it.. whether people like it or not this show is a phenomenon and will eventually be considered a classic drama in tv history. also it may not have 15 million viewers anymore but still having 6-8 million after 9 years when most shows hardly get 3.5 other than big bang and the csi's or the mentalist.. means that they are doing something right.


I like heather and Tina who plays her. i feel like she might be the next Meredith.. of her group anyway.. i like seeing the regulars from the higher point of view.. i feel like we see just enough of the interns to remember when the originals were in that same spot. i just hope they dont over do the whole intern thing.. could get a little boring and if greys isnt going to last much longer id rather see a clean and specific wrap up for the characters we already love.. and lets face it.. most of us grew up with them.. ive been watching since season one when i was 18.


Wow Jarrod ! I thing Camilla Luddington is the best thing comming to this (now) boring show...


I'm not interested in the interns but I don't hate them. I also think we should focus on the regulars, we haven't focused much on Bailey, Alex or Webber so far... and I'd like to see what's gonna happen for Callie and Arizona. But, to answer the questions, I'm quite sure something will happen between Jo and Alex. Come on, she's Izzie material and she's the only one that is not interested in sleeping with him. It's gonna happen, I'm telling you ! Concerning Stephanie's crush, as she's on Cristina's service, I'd say she might fall for Owen... My favorite intern is Heather, she seems quite smart and she's not annoying like the others.

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.
