‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9 spoilers: More scoop on Derek, Arizona

For those of you who love the major characters on “Grey’s Anatomy,” we have some more scoop coming your way; and while this is hardly the sort of news that is going to shock the world, it is definitely interesting from a standpoint of what to expect and what you are probably not going to be seeing again anytime soon.

First things first, the good news for fans of Derek: even though the next episode airing a week from Thursday is going to be largely about his wife Meredith and her friendship with Christina, TVLine is reporting that the good doctor will still be making an appearance. We don’t know the context just yet, but don’t expect much progress here when it comes to the story involving his hand … mostly because that is being saved for a later week instead.

Now, we turn to some of the bad news for those of you who really liked Ethan Embry’s character, who helped fit Arizona for the prosthetic during last week’s episode: he won’t be back. It’s a shame considering he seemed to be such a light on what is otherwise a pretty dark show at the moment, though the good news here is that we do know he will be a part of “Once Upon a Time” a little bit later in season, albeit in a currently-mysterious role. (What we luckily can confirm for now is that, unlike this show, he will be a part of more than one episode.)

What do you want to see happen with Derek and Arizona moving forward?
