Crowded Grey's Anatomy Means New Storytelling Methods?

at . Comments

With all the new doctors joining the staff at Seattle Grace (one played by 24's Kim Raver being the newest addition) and some of our current mainstays taking time away, a logistical question arises: How is the show going to write in all these comings and goings?

Here's what TV Guide had to say about that in its spoiler Q&A today ...

Q: Other than character-centric episodes, how else will Grey's Anatomy account for cast absences?

A: Rumor has it that the sixth episode of this season will feature a Rashomon-style story, as a death in the ER is told from the perspective of many characters.

But don't worry, Grey's Anatomy won't abandon its tried-and-true storytelling methods.

"People shouldn't expect the series to be wholly reinvented, but we are asking people to take a leap of faith with us and shake things up a little," executive producer Krista Vernoff said. "It's going to be a different experience for our audience, but I'm loving the episodes."

I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
