Katherine Heigl to Return For January 21 Episode

at .

From the looks of this photo from ABC, it looks like Katherine Heigl will actually be gracing us with our presence on Grey's Anatomy the week after next. Who'd have guessed!

It looks like separated newlyweds Izzie and Alex are finally going to have a heart-to-heart, too. The downside? Stevens may be stopping by only briefly before vanishing again.

The episode description says:

"After learning of Richard's drinking problem, Derek confronts him for the sake of his friend and the hospital; Izzie returns, hoping to reconcile with Alex, and tensions run high between Teddy, Cristina and Owen in the aftermath of Cristina's startling confession."

The January 21 episode of Grey's Anatomy is called "I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked." What do you think happens between Alex and Izzie then? You tell us ...

Izzie is Back

More photos and sneak peeks from this episode as well as next week's crossover event, "Blink," will follow soon! For now, share your thoughts on the coming episodes!
