‘Lots Of Drama Is Coming’ To ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

It’s hard to believe that it has almost been a whole season since the fateful plane crash that changed the course of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.

Last week, fans watched as the doctors took over the hospital and renamed it after their fallen loved ones.

“It was certainly an emotional table read for all of us,” Sarah Drew, who plays April Kepner, tells Celebuzz. “It’s a great way to honor those castmembers that we all got to work with for so many years. And it’s a big thing to rename the hospital! And I think it made us all re-remember those lost characters and those missed castmembers.”

The Virginia native discuseed some of the most memorable moments of the season, as well as some clues as to what’s ahead.

On the Season 9 finale episode: “I’ve noticed that every other year, there is some gigantic disaster, and on the off years there is big emotional turmoil, and disaster! So, I’m guessing there will be some big emotional trauma, regarding the board of directors. That’s what it’s looking like.”

On April’s love triangle involving coworkers Jackson (Jesse Williams) and Matthew (Justin Bruening): “She realizes that even though she’s with the guy that should be perfect for her, she misses sex quite a lot and is now feeling guilty all over again. We see more of her friendship with Jackson as well as her relationship with Matthew. And, there’s definitely a push and pull.”

On April’s relationship with the new board of directors: “She still sees Owen (Kevin McKidd) as her boss. She doesn’t  regard any of the doctors any differently now that they are on the Board of Directors. She continues to treat Jackson the way she’s always treated Jackson – being a jerk sometimes, and being neurotic and crazy sometimes, but also being supportive and a good friend.”

On the possibility of a Season 10: “I’m pretty confident that we will be coming back for at least one more season. We have no plan to end the story at this season finale. So I’ve got my fingers crossed for a few more years!”

On the upcoming conflicts within the new board of directors: “There’s definitely going to be conflict and drama coming. Everyone on the board of directors is first and foremost a surgeon. So what they want to focus on may not necessarily fit in mind with the budgetary obligations that Jackson has to make the final call on. So he steps up, and has to be a man about it! So that’s going to makes some waves in the coming episodes.”

On the cast’s reaction to the renaming of the hospital to “Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital,” in honor of the late doctors Lexi Grey (Chyler Leigh) and Mark Sloan (Eric Dane):
