"Grey's Anatomy" took fans on wild roller coaster of emotions on Thursday night.
Series creator Shonda Rhimes took to Twitter on Thursday to warn fans this week's episode would be a doozy, writing, "WARNING: If you live on the West Coast and don't want the surprise endings of BOTH @GreysABC and @ScandalABC spoiled, SHUT YR COMPUTER DOWN" - and she wasn't kidding!
After heartbreaking trouble getting pregnant and eventually adopting baby Zola, it was revealed on Thursday's show that Meredith Grey (played by Ellen Pompeo), is expecting a child. The pregnancy is only three weeks along (so who knows what may happen in ensuing weeks), but it's still exciting news for Meredith and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) - and the fans!
On the opposite end of the happiness scale, Christina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd) are going through a definite rough patch in their marriage, and may not be able to bounce back. Owen bluntly told his on-screen ladylove, "We should get a divorce." Even sadder was Christina's equally emotionless response, "If that's what you want."
Racking up points for the happy team was Arizona's successful return to Seattle Grace - as a doctor - for the first time since losing part of her leg on the Season 9 premiere.
Jessica Capshaw, who plays Arizona on the medical drama, was excited to see her character beginning to get back to a normal life.
"Can't wait to see what you all think of Arizona being back at the hospital...as a doctor NOT a patient," the actress Tweeted on Thursday.
"Grey's Anatomy" returns Thursday at 9/8c on ABC.
