As you may have heard already, a certain star of USA’s “White Collar” in Hilarie Burton is going to be guest-starring on Thursday night’s upcoming “Grey’s Anatomy” season 9 episode; and to make matters a little bit more interesting, we do have at least some more details on her role to share.
We’ve already told you that Burton’s character is going to be a specialist who is brought in to help a specific patient, but as the photo attached here clearly shows, this said patient is not even going to be old enough to have any sort of recognition as to who she is. Considering her role at the newly-named Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital, it’s really no surprise at all to see that Jessica Capshaw’s character of Arizona is present. As for Jesse Williams’ Jackson, that one is still a little bit of a mystery. Could it be that, thanks to his new position of power, that he is just checking up on her? Our guess is that it’s either that, or the patient has some connection to something else that he is working on.
Burton will for sure be in Thursday’s “Sleeping Monster,” but her role after that is unclear. Let’s hope that she makes a pretty big impression, given that she is not going to have very much time after that to do so. After all, there are only three episodes left for the entire season after this one, including the finale … which as everyone knows, is being kept under heavy lock and key.
What do you think about this photo, and is there anything that you want to see unfold during this “Grey’s Anatomy” episode? If you have yet to see a new and rather cryptic tease courtesy of Jessica Capshaw on what lies ahead, you can do so over at the link here.
