‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9 spoilers: Ellen Pompeo’s Meredith receives tough news

Grey's AnatomyRemember how “Grey’s Anatomy” tried to almost poke run at Meredith Grey’s constant pregnancy fears in the promo for next week’s “Idle Hands” episode? Well, as it turns out, there may be a reason for her to be afraid. (After all, didn’t you see this coming? Shonda Rhimes is not going to let this pregnancy happen for her leading lady without any sort of drama attached to it!)

We told you recently that the 20th episode of the season (airing a few weeks down the road) is going to be entitled “Idle Hands,” and based on the new synopsis below via SpoilerTV, we are almost sure to see Ellen Pompeo’s character have a tough time dealing with some news impacting the future of their child:

“Unsettling news motivates Derek and Meredith to take preventative steps for their children’s future; Syrian doctors come to the hospital for a crash course in basic surgical skills; April decides to tell Matthew the truth.”

So what does April need to tell Matthew the truth about? More than anything else, this is the part of this synopsis that has us curious more so than the baby drama, since we really saw that coming a mile away. We’re sure that there has to be some sort of feelings there between Sarah Drew’s character and Jackson, and it has to be coming out even more now that she is seeing him in more of a position of power helping to run the newly-named Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

What do you think that the “unsettling news” about, and are you hoping that April is still pining after Jackson by the time this episode rolls around? Be sure to share some of your thoughts below, and you can watch the first promo for next week’s episode over here.
