Unfortunately, there is no new Grey’s Anatomy on tonight, Thursday, April 20th.
That’s right– we’ll have to wait another week to see how Maggie reacts to the whole Meredith-and-Riggs-together deal.
In its place, ABC will air an old Scandal episode. The good news? It’ll be back in one week, with a new episode titled “Don’t Stop Me Now.” The synopsis for the episode reads: “Bailey and April work to fix things between Richard and Catherine. Meanwhile, Eliza continues to pursue Arizona; and one of Alex’s previous patients returns to the hospital.”
Another bit of good news is that Season 14 of the show has been confirmed by the network, so there’s a lot more to look forward to. What else? The show won’t be taking another break after this! Starting next week, ABC will air all season 13 episodes in successive weeks with no gaps, so you don’t have any more weeks off to break up your Grey’s watching.
On last week’s episode, Nathan and Meredith were on their way to a convention when their plane hit a rough patch of turbulence. Luckily, the doctors were there to save the day and take care of the injured passengers. Amid the chaos, Nathan was able to persuade Meredith to give their relationship a try… one little problem: Maggie. In the promo, we see Nathan rubbing Meredith’s shoulder and making it clear to Maggie that the two are an item. Meredith then stares at herself in the mirror, realizing that Maggie will never forgive her.
In a recent interview with TVLine, Kelly McCreary discussed Maggie’s feelings about Nathan and Meredith’s secret romance. “… [on the other hand, Meredith and Maggie have] gone through something so extreme together, and I think the whole Nathan question has been completely irrelevant this whole time. So when it comes up again, I think it becomes about weighing, ‘Oh, there’s this guy that I liked’ against this life-and-death experience that they’ve shared.”
Don’t miss a new episode of Grey’s Anatomy next Thursday, April 27 at 8/7c on ABC.
