Earlier, we posted the first promo and photos for the 2013 premiere, "Things We Said Today." What do you predict will be the most important stories and developments when the show returns?

Where are the new shows? Miss watching each week.


I was getting into the show to watch the Jackson/April romance until the writers decided to recycle old stories, break them up, and have Jackson sleep with an intern as Alex has been doing. Another Lexie/Mark break up thing which is getting old. They have the opportunity to continue building on this wonderful relationship with 2 people who have been best friends for a couple of seasons. I hope they don't blow it for them cos there really isn't much else on the show that interests me anymore. Too many good people have been killed off the show.


I only care about MerDer and his hand. Love alot of the other cast members too. Could care less about Jackson or his mother. Can't wait for a new Grey's and Derek to operate. I am especially interested in McBaby and how everyone will find out.


I know I said it before, but I would love to see Alex finally find someone who isn't messed in the head. I think Jo Wilson might be that person for him. There's a long road ahead there. Seeing Bailey and Ben finally get married, Derek's recovery and a decent mourning period for Richard if Adele does die. Catherine, if she's decent, would understand that. From what I see she's sort of doing the countdown until he's single again...


OanaM I agree


Sounds great,but when are you going to bring back Lexie?!I don't freaking care if they'll bring her as a ghost,puppet or heck,she could come back as a vampire,it's fine for me!Just bring her back.
Still,great show.


@yuiktyiuk, ummmmm that wasn't funny at all. Just sayin'


Looking forward to the coming info about the lawsuit


I guess there'll be a time jump between 9.10 & 9.11. I'm not a huge Mrs Avery fan, but where's her empathy if she's not aware that he's thinking about his life with and without Adele?
Will Mer's baby bump be starting to show? Not sure the plantiffs are gonna win, and not the money they deserve.


I don't blame Richard. His wife died. Who could have any remote interest in romance after that?


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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
