A sneak peek: 'Grey's Anatomy' cast tries to keep the faith
Keeping the faith – it’s not an easy task for anyone, let alone Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), who has lost her newly-adopted baby Zola to child services, is not performing surgeries and is on rocky terms with Derek (Patrick Dempsey). Still, in a sneak peek of tonight’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” (Thursday at 9 pm ET on CTV), Meredith insists: “We’re just going to believe that everything’s going to be okay.”
Watch the sneak peek now.
It’s a pretty optimistic intro, but in the same clip, she gets an out of office reply from the social worker who is supposed to be working on getting Zola back to her and Derek. How my heart aches for her in that scene. It’s so awful to witness someone feeling so helpless and overlooked, with a child hanging in the balance, and all through an automated out of office response.
“I’ve been picturing her making calls, fighting the good fight to get my kid back,” Meredith tells Cristina (Sandra Oh), clearly distraught.
And it looks like things go from bad to worse, with child services threatening to take away Zola’s access to her doctors at Seattle Grace.
This is where Alex (Justin Chambers) comes in. He’s had a rough season, poor guy, after tattling on Meredith’s tampering of Derek’s case, and being shunned by the rest of the doctors for it.
But his genuine care for Zola might be his chance at ditching the pariah label and donning a superhero cape.
I really do hope Derek and Meredith get Zola back soon so all the awful tension between them is channeled into diaper changing and late night feedings.
The rest of the cast will be busy, apparently, not in the O.R., but on the baseball diamond as Owen (Kevin McKidd) enters the team into a softball game against Seattle Presbyterian. I wonder if this is where ex-Chief Webber (James Pickens, Jr) is going to try to repair Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and Meredith's working relationship – between innings, in the out field, or maybe during the seventh inning stretch?
