Is Grey Sloan going up in flames?
With Grey’s Anatomy heading toward a big event in its season finale, a new tease from Shonda Rhimes may spell doom for the hospital — that, or the hospital may play host to the victims of a fire. You decide: “Debbie Allen and I like to say that the episode is on fire,” Rhimes told EW at the Scandal 100th episode party on Saturday night. “That’s the only way we’re going to describe it. It’s a pretty exciting episode that’s very on fire.”
Allen, who wrapped directing the Grey’s finale on Friday, concurred: “I can only tease that it’s going to be hot for real; it’s on fire. We had night shoots and we were up all night for a couple of weeks, but boy it was great. I was so excited every day.”
Does this mean the actual hospital will be on fire in the finale? “I don’t know about that,” Rhimes said coyly.
However fire may or may not play a role in the finale, it sounds like someone could get burned. “You should be worried,” Allen cautioned. “Be worried, because it’s that kind of night. It’s going to be that kind of a ride.”
In fact, Allen reveals that the events of the season finale will give fans an indication of what’s coming next year. “I think season 14 is going to be spectacular,” Allen said. “We’re planting some seeds that you won’t see coming, but you will be waiting to see how it’s all going to play out.”
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
