By now, you probably know Grey's Anatomy is hitting a major TV milestone this week with its 332nd episode. To celebrate becoming the longest-running primetime medical drama of all time, ABC posted a "By the Numbers" video counting some of the major moments. My favorite part is seeing there were more "dancing it out" scenes than births, weddings, or punches:
Yes, the top number probably goes to "OMG moments," even over surgeries, hookups, and "Seriouslys." As the video notes...
What a great dance/punch/birth down memory lane! Grey's Anatomy premiered back in March 2005. Season 15, Episode 15 -- aka 15x15 -- will air this Thursday, February 28, marking the 332nd episode of the series. That will pass ER's 331 episodes, making Grey's Anatomy the longest-running American medical drama.
Grey's Anatomy does not seem to be slowing down. ABC hasn't renewed the series for Season 16, but it's pretty much a given. Ratings are still strong each week, and fans are still watching rerun marathons and catching up on Netflix. Every time The Powers That Be think the show will wind down, it finds new life and new viewers.
Season 15 just gave Meredith Grey a new love interest in Andrew DeLuca. As this recap video reminds us, Alex Karev has done his fair share of punching on Grey's Anatomy, and he beat the crap out of DeLuca when he thought DeLuca was making moves on a drunk Jo. At the time, DeLuca did have a crush on Jo. He had already been with Meredith's sister Maggie. And now he is with Meredith.
On that note, next week's March 7 episode puts Mer in the middle of her new boyfriend and her longtime buddy. Here's the synopsis for "Blood and Water":
Alex and DeLuca on opposite sides again? And what about Jaggie will cause a public stir -- maybe that she and Jackson are stepsiblings? Hmmm. That's next week. Here's the synopsis for this Thursday's big 332nd milestone episode, "We Didn't Start the Fire," airing February 28:
Yes, Lindsay Wagner's Helen Karev is coming back in the picture this week! That should be interesting. So far, ABC has shared two promos for this episode that both focus on the milestone of passing ER as the longest-running primetime medical show on TV. So are they celebrating that through the celebration for Catherine's surgery? Otherwise, there hasn't been much to promote the actual episode's events.
In terms of what's still to come, the March 14 episode is called "And Dream of Sheep," with tension between Andrew and Carina DeLuca over "unforgiving family history." We can probably expect a lot of yelling in Italian in that episode. It will also feature Teddy and Owen working together on a married couple who is expecting, and Amelia attending a conference on alternative pain relief.
Speaking of Amelia, we know her special episode is coming up, with Amy Acker cast as her (and Derek's) elusive sister Kate.
Grey's Anatomy Season 15 has been pretty ambitious so far -- and recently let nurse Bokhee finally speak to Meredith -- and I'm excited to see where it goes from here. Grey's airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, as one of the many shows airing during midseason 2019.
Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
