Thursday night marks the end of the first half of “Grey’s Anatomy” this season, and it looks to be a big episode. You have April’s wedding to Matthew, Dr. Bailey making some big decisions, and even Derek making some choices of his own that could impact his career. Will there be a cliffhanger? Given that this will be the last episode of the show until late February, you better believe it. This would not be a Shonda Rhimes show otherwise.
But for this particular article, what we are here to discuss is a new image that series star Jesse Williams posted on his Twitter account, one that appears to be some sort of table discussion with Jackson, Jessica Capshaw’s Arizona, and Patrick Dempsey’s character … maybe. It could just be the three actors sitting down while in costume and having a little bit of fun. But, this should at least be something that gets you talking. What are these three characters doing together?
As for another good question, why is Derek in a suit while the others are in their lab coats and scrubs? We have a hard time believing that this is a mere coincidence, since it’s not like Patrick goes into work everyday wearing some of his finest clothes. Whatever this is for, it’s clearly for an episode airing in the new year … so you are going to be waiting for quite a while in order to find out.
What we mostly hope is that whatever happens next for the show, it provides some sort of substantial spark to shoot the ratings back up in the right direction. The last year has been tough on the show when it comes to its once-dominant numbers, and “The Sound of Music Live” in particular on Thursday took a big chunk of its viewership away. Hopefully, there are some big events coming that will have people talking again.
What’s your theory on the picture, and what do you want to see happen in the second half of “Grey’s Anatomy” this season? Take a look here at a preview for Thursday’s episode, and we of course welcome all of your thoughts with a comment below.
