Grey's Anatomy Planning Special Meredith-Cristina Episode

at . Comments

Meredith and Cristina have formed one of Grey's Anatomy's core relationships for years.

Now they're getting an episode unlike any other, according to creator Shonda Rhimes.

The standalone Grey's Anatomy Season 9 episode is just the story of Meredith and Cristina," Rhimes says. "It’s really going to be original. I don’t think we’ve ever told a story the way we’re telling a story in this episode.”

In typical Shonda fashion, she won't reveal specifics, saying only, “It’s not a regular episode. I won’t be able to explain what the gimmick is until I’ve seen it shot and we’ve decided on the visual style of it"

"But it is going to be fairly different.”

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."
