Private Practice transplant Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) has set up a pretty cushy life for herself in Seattle, even becoming the head of neurosurgery over her brother, Derek (Patrick Dempsey). But that will all come crashing down when she’s faced with her past transgressions — namely her illicit drug use with boyfriend Ryan (Wes Brown), which eventually led to his death by overdose. ”Through a series of circumstances, someone who knows all of her deepest and darkest secrets ends up at the hospital,” Scorsone tells EW of Grey’s Anatomy‘s Nov. 13 episode. ”So her anonymity is severely compromised.”
Amelia’s troubled past will also threaten her job. ”You can understand why people would be slightly concerned knowing that their neurosurgeon had a history with hard narcotics,” Scorsone says, hinting that the story line will finally bring Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Amelia together on screen. ”He’s placed in a very awkward position of having to make a decision on whether she’s capable of doing the job that she’s doing.” Still, the big question is not whether she’ll keep her job but whether Derek will come to her defense. Suffice it to say, McIssues will arise.

Bivolo to anyone else?
