Crossovers are always fun, especially when it’s a Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice crossover episode! During the third episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) visits Derek (Patrick Dempsey), her brother, after she hears about the shooting at Seattle Grace Hospital. Keep reading for some spoilers on this crossover episode.
Private Practice’s brilliant new neurosurgeon Caterina Scorsone spilled some fun facts about the latest Grey’s Anatomy/Private Practice crossover episode, including an emotional reunion between estranged siblings Amelia Shepherd and her Grey’s big bro McDreamy Derek. So apparently we have to blame Addison (Kate Walsh) for convincing Amelia to visit her brother. “Basically Addison kicks her in the keester, Amelia is kicking and screaming and doing everything she can do to avoid the inevitable, but Addison somehow convinces her that she’s gotta go to Seattle.” says Scorsone. Do you think we’re going to blame Addison or thank her for making this reunion happen? Keep reading before you decide!
“Derek and Amelia have been at an impasse for years after their father’s tragedy. She has some pretty bad behavior and Derek’s got his quirks as well. I’m not going to give Amelia all the blame, but there is definitely some cathartic movement in that relationship.” adds Caterina. These estranged siblings will be taking baby steps to try to repair their relationship, but it’s not going to be easy.
This episode will definitely be a treat for all us McDreamy fans as we learn more about his past during this crossover episode.
“You find out a lot about Derek,” Scorsone promises. “That’s one of the things that’ll be interesting for a lot of people who have been watching the show for years, myself included. You really get to find out about that tragedy that’s colored both of our lives ever since. We were young when we witnessed our father’s murder, and so fans really get to learn about that.”
“Amelia is pretty focused on Derek and trying to mend that relationship,” she tells us. “And I’m really happy with how it all went.”
The big crossover event is still a few months away, but be sure to catch Caterina on Thursday’s Private Practice premiere at 10/9c on ABC, following a brand-new Grey’s Anatomy at 9/8c!
