‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9 spoilers: More on Arizona’s fate

Are we going to find out for sure what is going to happen with Arizona on “Grey’s Anatomy” before the premiere? Probably not, but that does not mean that we have to shy away from some more hints that are being presented here and there.

Speaking on this subject as a part of her new interview with TV Guide, Ellen Pompeo at least said something that suggests that Jessica Capshaw is at least going to be around for the early portion of the season; as for how far she lasts beyond that, this is still the question:

“I’m not really around when they film those scenes, but what I can say is the scenes Jessica has are really intense and definitely challenging. But I think Jessica’s going to knock it out of the park, and it’s going to be great for the show!”

So do we expect to see Arizona stick around? We hope, if for no other reason than that she is such a popular character, and we would be completely and totally stunned if the show decided to be so evil as to kill off both Arizona and Lexie in consecutive episodes, especially when you consider that we already know that Kim Raver and Eric Dane are each going to be waving goodbye to the show by the time this season is over.

Do you think that Arizona is going to be around for a while this season, and if so, what sort of story do you think that she is going to have? We want to hear some more of your thoughts with a comment below!┬áIf you want to check out some more about what Ellen has to say concerning Camilla Luddington’s new role on the show, all you have to do is read the story here.
