EP Krista Vernoff on the 300th episode:
I did my best to look back at our history and move our story forward simultaneously. I tried to honor the beloved characters who have come and gone during the 14 seasons of our show. I might not have hit all of them, but I paid some small tribute to most.
I also created a little Easter egg hunt for the avid fans. I don’t want to give too much away, but keep your eyes and ears peeled — and keep your tissues handy!
What we know so far about Mer's upcoming new romance:
The show is quietly searching for a fortysomething actor to play a major new love interest opposite Ellen Pompeo.
Character details are sketchy, but I’m told the guy in question will be a doctor from a foreign country who is sexy, fiery, impulsive and passionate about medicine. He also shares something major in common with Mer in that one of his parents (in his case his pa) was/is a renowned surgeon.
On Jo's dark past:
Jo’s past will soon come back to haunt her. Sources tell me that Matthew Morrison will reprise his role as Jo’s abusive husband, Paul, early in the New Year as Grey’s plans to delve deep into a powerful domestic violence storyline.
