How could “Grey’s Anatomy” possibly follow up episode 11’s heartbreaking installment? Well, according to the Season 11 synopsis for episode 12, the writers of the hit ABC medical drama found a way – through a little comedic relief.
“The Great Pretender,” named after the hit Platters single, will use sex to help transition the show from the tragic death of April (Sarah Drew) and Jackson’s (Jesse Williams) newborn baby. And it looks like all your favorite characters will be participating in next week’s sensual story line.
The promo for episode 12 teases that Jo (Camilla Luddington) will be dropping trou – or should we say scrubs? – in front of the recently single Arizona (Jessica Capshaw). “I’m down for whatever happens,” Alex (Justin Chambers) says in the preview, giving the blond-haired doctor a sly smile.
Dr. Herman (Geena Davis) will also be doing a bit of seductive work herself in the upcoming installment as she attempts to “try out” the new couch with Owen (Kevin McKidd). We can all agree that Herman is using code words for intercourse, right?
But not everyone will be getting their fill of pleasure in episode 12. According to reports, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) will be anything but satisfied when her stepsister Maggie (Kelly McCreary) questions her regarding her whereabouts. In episode 11, Mer had hunted down someone to snag her weekend shift and watch her kids so she could have “emergency sex” with Derek (Patrick Dempsey).
However, Meredith must have been sidetracked by something (or someone) because she never made it to D.C. “Your husband called me three times asking where you were,” Maggie says in the promo video. “Whatever you were doing it wasn’t with him.”
Did Meredith cheat on Derek? Or did Mer just want some time to herself and felt guilty about it? Either way, Maggie will express her frustration with her stepsis when Mer dodges questions about Washington D.C., according to the summary.
The synopsis adds that Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and Ben (Jason George) will become concerned about the well-being of Ben’s brother when he’s admitted to the hospital. Meanwhile, Richard (James Pickens, Jr.) will begin to feel manipulated by his ex-fiancée Catherine (Debbie Allen).
