TVLine Items: Grey's Anatomy's Blast From the Past, Affair Teaser and More


Grey’s Anatomy is bringing back a somewhat random face from the first half of its 14-year run, leading us to wonder, “Why? And to what end?”

Sarah Utterback, who recurred as Nurse Olivia Harper from the middle of Season 1 through early Season 6, is returning to the ABC medical drama in the Thursday, April 26 episode, EW.com reports.

Back in the day, Olivia hooked up with — and contracted syphilis from — Alex, which she then gave to George O’Malley (left). So it’s anybody’s guess what the topic of conversation will be when she and her (um, how old???) son show up at Grey Sloan Memorial and are treated by Jo.
