Update: Grey's Anatomy's Big Arizona Episode Much Ado About a Joke

Reports that Grey’s Anatomy is plotting a standalone Arizona episode have been greatly exaggerated (by us)!

On Friday, Jesse Williams revealed on social media that he will make his Grey’s directorial debut later this season. Jessica Capshaw quickly piggy-backed on his announcement, tweeting, “It’s an Arizona standalone episode. Can’t wait!”

However, as several readers have since pointed out (and ABC has confirmed) Capshaw was merely jesting. Yes, Williams is directing, but the episode will not be Arizona-focused. Here is their exchange below.

We apologize for this tw-isunderstanding.
