Grey's Anatomy Hot Shots: Who Is Missing in Action? And Is Three a Crowd for Mark/Lexie?

Grey’s Anatomy resumes its eighth season on Thursday, Jan. 5, having left viewers with a few pre-holiday cliffhangers — and we’ve got some pics from that first episode back.

Hot for Winter: Your January Premieres and Returns Calendar

The fall finale closed with Meredith and Alex seemingly out of harm’s way after the ambulance they were transporting a newborn in got broadsided by an SUV on a dark, slick road. (Alas, the other vehicle’s passengers were not nearly as lucky.) Also, Teddy’s husband Henry had died during his latest surgery, but Owen and others held back on notifying her as she wrapped up her own operation on another patient.

Based on the photos below, Meredith is unscathed and accounted for, though Alex is MIA. Similarly, Teddy is nowhere in sight (though neither is Cristina, the one who unknowingly operated on Henry and later was devastated to learn he, albeit unavoidably, died on her table).

On a lighter note, as first reported by TVLine, this is the episode where Lexie must work alongside not just Mark but also his new girlfriend Julia (played by Holley Fain). Awk. Ward. (Though Lexie seems smiley enough about the whole thing.)

Grey’s Anatomy Exclusive: Derek and Addison Reunite, But There’s a Doozy of a Twist!

The official synopsis for the winter premiere, titled “Suddenly,” reads: “A severe car crash involving an entire family results in an all-hands-on situation in the ER, as the eldest daughter is left to make the toughest decision of her life. Meanwhile Teddy, still in the dark about Henry’s death, calls upon Cristina to help with her patient in the O.R., and Lexie finds herself working alongside Mark’s new girlfriend, Julia, during an eye surgery.”

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I thought Teddy didn’t find out about Henry yet…

    • emmalinesadie says:

      Same here. I don’t remember her finding out.

      • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

        Yep, this has been corrected! (My sincerest regrets, it’s been quite a while since GREY’S was on…. I mentally transposed Cristina’s anguished reaction with Teddy’s.)

        • Sue says:

          LOL This is why they should have aired the two episodes back to back without a two month long hiatus in-between. Even people who are paid to report on TV can’t remember the correct sequence so I imagine a lot of the general public won’t either.

          I want to know what happens to Alex and Meredith and the baby in their care. And it would be nice to see Derek’s reaction when he finds out Meredith is okay but I’m not holding my breath.I suspect Cristina and Owens relationship will be tested.

  2. Sam says:

    Matt, Teddy did not find out about Henry’s death yet. The episode left off without her knowing that he died in surgery. So that’s why she’s “still in the dark.”

  3. Jarrod says:

    Damn Lexie! You’re really rockin’ those bangs!

  4. Mike says:

    Ellen Pompeo looking amazing on the pics.
    Meredith has a band aid on her forehead
    I bet Ellen will rock this epi as well.she is owning the show.
    She is amazing.

    Mark’s GF? What! We’ve seen her all of one episode (two Scenes) and now she’s his GF. Funniest line i’ve heard all day.

  6. rebecca says:

    Mark & Lexie are the only couple i like on the show. Please get back together.

  7. Anna says:

    Poor Teddy :( loved her and henry together

  8. Bryce says:

    I thought you guys previously reported that Kate Walsh would return in a Fringe-like alternate reality? Is this still happening in another episode or was Ausiello wrong?

  9. Danielle H says:

    Man, Mark’s new lady is hot! I really like Lexie, but this lady seems more on his level. Hope Alex is ok. Really looking forward to the alt reality episode though.

    SO glad to see some Grey’s scoop! I know a lot of people don’t like it, but it’s been a favorite for years! Thanks!
