Entertainment Weekly's amazing Michael Ausiello has some Grey's Anatomy spoilers for us in his weekly spoiler Q&A. Here's what he has to say about a number of hot topics ...
Q: Do you have any awesome scoop on what's ahead on Grey's Anatomy?
A: The Grey's Anatomy wedding taking place in the show's 100th episode on May 7? Turns out it's not Mer-Der after all! The plot thickens!
Q: Any news on whether T.R. Knight will get a story this season on Grey's Anatomy?
A: Remember me telling you last month about a proposed storyline that would find O'Malley developing an interest in Owen's specialty as a military/trauma doc? You know, the one ABC insisted had been scrapped and replaced with something even better?
Well, my colleague, Jennifer Armstrong, just spoke to Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt), and the new story sounds a lot like the old one ..."Hunt [will start to] see something in George that no one else has," McKidd revealed. "There's an event that happens and [Hunt] realizes there's a lot more to him... that he has a set of skills that maybe he isn't even aware of. Hunt starts to mentor him in a way that gets really interesting."
Translation: My initial theory about Shonda Rhimes having George join the military and go off to Iraq as a way of accommodating Knight's departure is so happening. Right?
Q: Will Cristina and Owen hit the sheets anytime soon on Grey's Anatomy?
A: Let's ask Kevin McKidd. "A lot happens this week," he said. "I think they’ve drawn that one out a lot, and I know people are getting frustrated. I think it’s good because they've really connected on a mental and emotional level. And now I think it's time they connect physically."
Oh, they're going to connect physically, alright. Sneak peeks to come ...
