Oh yes. Whoever thought that the showrunner of Grey’s Anatomy Shonda Rhimes, would actually engage her countless fans on a serene setting filled with domesticated animals on a farm? If you’re just as surprised as I am, don’t mesmerize yourself too long cause I’m sure it will only be for a while.
This information is obviously about the basketcase, Seattle Grace resident, April Kepner.
The fifth year ex-Mercy West doc who unforutantely failed her medical boards was teased by Rhimes on her sit-down interview with THR.
What’s next for April (Sarah Drew) now that she doesn’t have a job?
When we come back to April, she’s back home on the farm so how she gets back to us at the hospital is going to be a very interesting journey.
Certainly, it will be an unforgettable event for Kepner. However, Ellen Pompeo’s character Meredith who unlike Kepner, remains calm in moments of life-threatening incidents like holding a bomb or even drowning, was also teased that her darker personality will be revisited this fall.
How will Lexie’s death impact Meredith? Could we potentially see the return of dark and twisty Meredith from early Grey’s Anatomy?
You’re going to be surprised at the Meredith you see. I think there’s a lot of growth there for the girl who drowned, put her hand on a bomb in a body cavity, the girl whose husband was shot in front of her. She’s grown in a number of ways and the way that she’s coping with the plane crash is very different from the Meredith you would have seen coping with the shooting and the Meredith who was coping with the bomb guy exploding — she’s a different person at this point.
And to wrap it all up, everyone’s favorite Ortho-surgeon and new mother Calliope Torres was reported to have thicker storylines this upcoming season. The love of her life, Arizona Robbins was last seen on the crash spitting blood and facing a major injury. Though Rhimes kept quiet about what will be Arizona’s status in season 9, we know that it will bring a huge impact to Callie.
Which leaves Arizona, who wasn’t in great shape in the season finale. What’s her heath status like when the season picks up?
I don’t know that I want to talk about Arizona.
Arizona has a huge following in the LGBT community and you and Grey’s have continued to get recognition from GLAAD. Any comment on the notion that Arizona could be leaving?
I was honored to receive two awards from GLAAD this year and I feel like that character is iconic to me at this point. The way people respond to that character and that relationship, there’s something really beautiful about that. We don’t make decisions lightly and I certainly don’t make these decisions lightly. I really try to stick to what’s best for story and what’s best for the show and it’s really sometimes difficult to do that but it’s also sometimes really gratifying to that. We’re doing what feels completely right and in line with where we’ve been and where we’re going.
How is Arizona’s fate going to impact Callie?
It’s going to impact her hugely. We’re going to spend a lot of time with Callie this season, there’s a lot of story to be told there.
