As ABC’s longest running show gears up for it’s fourteenth season, each fan has their own idea of just how the doctor’s drama could go down. Whether it be long-awaited hookups or the return of surgeons from the past, every fan is waiting patiently to see what tricks Shonda Rhimes has up her sleeve when season 14 of Grey’s Anatomy premieres on September 28!
While I never know where Shonda is going to take things, I have hope that my long-awaited questions will finally be answered...or rather they better! Fans have been riding this hospital-soap-opera roller coaster for far too long to not see some characters get the happiness (and answers!) they deserve.
Below, is a list of stuff that either could or should happen come the two-hour premiere, along with a few pipe dreams of stuff that will happen in the fan fiction I write when I’m inevitably disappointed by whatever happens for real.
1. Owen Finally Gets The Family He’s Been Waiting For
If there’s an award for a doctor with the purest heart, Dr. Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) deserves it. I’ve been rooting for him ever since he pulled an icicle from Cristina Yang’s (Sandra Oh) abdomen in season five. But despite being one the best guys roaming the halls of Grey Sloan, the show’s writers won’t cut him any slack. He’s been fighting to have a family since the beginning of time and even after TWO wives and a broken engagement he still ain’t got one. Fingers crossed that a baby is in his near future, biological or otherwise. And Owen, if Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) won’t do it, call me.
2. Jo and Alex Have to Discuss This Ex-Husband Issue
I know Camilla Luddington was pregnant during last season and all, but this go-round I want some answers. Alex (Justin Chambers) and Jo (Luddington) barely got any screen time last season and I know I speak for most fans when I say we got duped. I desperately wanted to see them have a longer-than-two-minute conversation and to see Alex confront Jo’s ex husband. Luckily, with Matthew Morrison set to reprise his role as the infamous character, I’m confident that this will totally be happening.
3. Maggie Gets a Boyfriend
I love Maggie (Kelly McCreary), but if I have to go another season listening to her whine about being lonely, WITHOUT doing anything to remedy the situation beyond pining for a man who was clearly in love with her half-sister, then I’m going to poke my own eyes out. Maggie, it may be time to download the Tinder app for doctors. (Does that really exist? If not, BRB going to create it.) Part of me hopes she’ll just wise up and get back with DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti). Too bad he’s in love with Jo…
Or wait...maybe her and Jackson (Jesse Williams) will hook up. A step-siblings-in-love storyline? I’m here for it.
4. Riggs and Meredith Make It Work
I’ve waited too long for Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) to get off this sad, selfish, pity-party train for Shonda to throw her back on it with the (re?)introduction of Owen’s sister and Nathan’s (ex?) fiance. I love Grey’s for the drama, but can Mer catch just one break this season? After surviving two plane crashes/incidents, losing her parents, sister AND husband, raising three kids by her damn self and having her person move away, she deserves a little slice of happiness. So step aside Megan (Abigail Spencer). Nathan (Martin Henderson) has moved on.
5.Cristina Yang Makes a Surprise Cameo
This is total wishful thinking on my part, but how awesome would it be if Amelia, Teddy (Kim Raver) and Cristina all were in Grey Sloan at the same time? Maybe seeing all three women at once would help Owen understand that he doesn’t know how to pick ‘em. Most importantly, the show has been missing it’s badass girl-power moments. Everyone is so wrapped up in their relationship drama that I miss the tunnel-vision way of thinking Cristina had when it came to her career.
Of course, this list could go on for forever and ever, but I’ll hold my other suggestions until after the season premieres. Something tells me that everything is about to get shaken up and I’m so ready for it. Bring it Shonda!
Watch the two-hour season premiere this Thursday September 28 at 8/7c on ABC.
