Fez is making his way to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital! During episode 17 of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “That ‘70s Show” alum Wilmer Valderrama will begin his multi-episode arc on Season 12 of the hit ABC series.
According to the synopsis for the coming installment, titled “I Wear the Face,” Valderrama will portray the role of a musically inclined patient named Kyle Diaz, who also suffers from multiple sclerosis. Kyle will be admitted to the hospital with a tremor in his hand, which means he’ll be looking for the medical masterminds of Seattle to help cure his shaky limbs for the sake of his music.
Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) won’t be the one tasked with Kyle’s case. Instead, she’ll be elbow deep in her own issues — ones that involve preventing Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Riggs (Martin Henderson) from killing one other.
The summary reveals that Mer will be forced to go on an ambulance ride to pick up a heart for a transplant patient … and she’ll be accompanied by the bickering twosome. Hopefully this trip will help the boys to learn how to play nice — or at least, give us more details on Owen’s sister Megan.
Meanwhile, the Grey Sloan residents will spend episode 16 applying for the Preminger Grant. So, viewers can expect the scrub-donning surgeons to be extra competitive during the forthcoming installment. Lastly, it was unveiled that Catherine (Debbie Allen) will continue to butt into Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April’s (Sarah Drew) love life … or lack thereof. But will April’s former mother-in-law find a way to revive Japril from the dead? Or will Jackson's meddling mom drive the knife even further into their damaged relationship?
“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
