Tired of Grey’s Anatomy shanghaiing 80 percent of Ask Ausiello week in and week out? Or are you peeved that it’s not 100 percent? Well, I finally figured out how to make everyone happy… at least this week: Feast your eyes on this, a special, one-time-only edition of AA that focuses exclusively on Grey’s — or more specifically, on this week’s pivotal episode, which I have just seen.* Let’s get this Q&Grey’s started!
Question: How and when is Izzie’s “condition” on Grey’s going to be revealed? — Sarah
Ausiello: Officially, the dead-guy-sexing resident won’t be diagnosed for a few more weeks. Unofficially, however, we will get our first clue into what’s ailing her at the end of Thursday’s episode. There’s another twist, yes, but luckily, it’s one only an idiot wouldn’t see coming. Here’s a hint just for those special folks: Izzie isn’t anemic.
Question: Is Dr. Bailey going to take over as the head cardio surgeon? — Dee
Ausiello: While I can’t confirm that, I can confirm that she receives some potentially career-altering news.
Question: Do you have any Grey’s scoops? — Bryan
Ausiello: Thursday’s ep features one of the funniest, all-female group
hugs ever. Also, there’s a bawdy cafeteria scene that is so
quintessentially Grey’s that it reminded me how much I miss the good,
ol’ show. Oh, and did I mention the girl-on-girl action? ‘Cause there
Question: Anything new on Cristina and Owen? — Gaby
Ausiello: Lots of cheesy, slow-mo, piano-scored interludes will give
way to an emotional collapse that is either extremely moving or
ridiculously over the top. I haven’t made up my mind yet.
Question: Can you help a girl out and give us anything on Cristina and Hunt? — Erin
Ausiello: This may or may not shed light on the above spoiler, but this
week marks the arrival of Laura Allen (Dirt) as a woman from Owen’s
Question: It’s my birthday, so I wondered if I can have some delicious NCIS scoop? — Chris
Ausiello: Happy birthday, and… no. Sorry, this is a special edition
of Ask Ausiello that focuses solely on Grey’s Anatomy (see above for more). Check back on
Wednesday for the regular non-discriminatory AA. That may have what
you’re looking for.
Question: My wife made me watch all five seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, and
I have to say I enjoyed every bit of it. My question is: Do you have an
update on T.R. Knight? Is he leaving? — Dennis
Ausiello: Nothing official’s been decided, but I suspect Thursday’s ep
may have been the straw that broke the underused actor’s back: George
is literally on screen for about 10 seconds.
Question: Any Mer/Der news you can share? — Lindsay
Ausiello: By the end of this week’s episode, I’m pretty sure everyone
in Seattle Grace (patients included) will have seen that damn ring except poor Meredith.
Thoughts on scoop above? And what do you make of this experimental AA
spin-off? Super-fun warm-up for Wednesday’s main event or an
unnecessary diversion that runs the risk of diluting the original?
Sound off below!
