It was not that long ago that we first revealed that Debbie Allen was going to be directing an upcoming season 9 episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” — and now, we also know that the actress is going to be making an appearance in front of the camera to go along with it.
According to a brand-new report from TV Guide, Allen is going to be stepping in front of the camera, as well, for the fourth episode of the season as Catherine Avery, Jackson’s mother who also happens to be an important player in the medical field. To make matters even more interesting, she also has a romantic relationship with Richard Webber that stems from the two of them sleeping together at the end of last season. This hook-up was definitely a polarizing subject for many fans — while many felt as though it was wrong for Richard to cheat on his wife Adele even though she has Alzheimer’s and is barely with him on any emotional level, some still felt that it was crass for him to do so given the words “’til death to us part.”
Will Richard and Catherine keep up their romantic relationship? Only time will tell, but we have a feeling that whatever problems are between these two, they are not going to be dissipating immediately the moment these two see each other again. As for Jackson himself, let’s just say that he may be too worried about April to even focus on what his mother is doing.
Do you want to see Richard and Catherine together, or would you prefer the former Chief to wait until Adele has passed away before he makes any moves? If you want to check out some more news pertaining to Derek on this coming season, be sure and head on over to this link.
