Dr. Bailey to Pinch-Hit as Episode 11 Narrator

at . Comments

There's no new episode tonight, but Michael Ausiello of TV Guide reports an interesting Grey's Anatomy spoiler pertaining to Episode 11 of Season Four.

Earlier this week, we posted an article about the use of voiceover narration on Grey's Anatomy and other shows. As we know, Meredith Grey does the honors, with a few notable exceptions. One of which is coming up in Episode 11.

The new narrator for this episode is not Callie, as some speculated earlier in the week. It is Dr. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), and there's a reason behind her filling in for Meredith â€" and as you might expect, it isn't a pretty reason.

Tough Love

Does something serious happen to Dr. Bailey? Ausiello writes:

"Physically? No. Emotionally? Yes. Let's just say that random scene last week of Bailey at home with her husband and kid will make more sense when Episode 11 airs."

The conclusion of last week's Thanksgiving Day episode, "Crash Into Me, Part II," airs next week, December 6. That episode will be Episode 10 of Season 4. The week after that, December 13, "Lay Your Hands On Me" (Episode 11) will air.

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.

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."
