TV Guide posted previews for returning Winter shows including Grey’s Anatomy. Read below what awaits when the show returns on January 19th.
Grey’s Anatomy (ABC)
Premieres: Thursday, Jan. 19 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: Convinced she didn’t want to try having more children, Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) left Owen (Kevin McKidd) and told him via a note not to come after her. Jo (Camilla Luddington) finally confessed to Alex (Justin Chambers) that she’s married to an abusive man and changed her name so that she could escape him, and Alex contemplated turning himself in to spend two years in prison for assaulting DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti). And newcomer Eliza Minnick (Marika Dominczyk) got flirty with Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and indicated that she’s prepared to take over from Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr.), causing the Grey Sloan staff to rally behind their longtime leader.
What’s Next: According to Kevin McKidd, Owen will ignore Amelia’s request and go after his wife – though whether they’ll be able to reconcile remains up in the air. “There comes a time where enough’s enough,” McKidd notes. “She was almost a runaway bride at the wedding, and now she’s running again. … This kind of on-again-off-again thing can’t go on forever.” Meanwhile, at the hospital, battle lines are drawn as Minnick faces off with Webber, and no one feels more caught in the middle than Arizona, who continues to struggle with her feelings for Dr. Minnick and her loyalty to Webber. “As long as Eliza represents Richard Webber in any way, shape or form being ousted or compromised, then [Arizona’s] not going to be able to wholeheartedly jump into something that feels fresh and new exciting without feeling sort of apologetic about it,” Jessica Capshaw explains. “[She’s] feeling like, ‘Man, really, I’m going to have to pass this up? … This stinks.” And, though no one will know what decision Alex comes to until the show returns, Capshaw promises that the repercussions from his actions won’t end with him choosing whether or not to go to jail. For starters, will he ever be able to work at Grey Sloan again? “A lot hinges on whether or not he’s going to be able to disentangle himself from this mess,” Capshaw says.
