at . Comments

Nothing particularly new or groundbreaking here, but in case you haven't seen or heard, and want a general idea of what we can expect in the first three episodes of the new year, we've posted ABC's official press releases about them for you below.

With titles like "Wish You Were Here," "Sympathy For the Devil," and "Stairway to Heaven," it looks like the writers are planning something big. Or listening to a lot of classic rock.

In the Hunt

We're also compiling promotional photos for "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Stairway to Heaven," which we will be posting soon. Follow the jump for the episode synopses ...

"Wish You Were Here," January 8 (5.11)

Bailey teams with Seattle Grace's new pediatric surgeon, Dr. Arizona Robbins, to save the life of a young patient near and dear to her heart, as the admittance of a death row inmate at the hospital stirs anger in Derek and further erodes Meredith and Cristina's friendship; meanwhile, Callie and Sloan work as a team to fight their respective attractions to Sadie and Lexie, and Izzie tells Alex that she's seeing Denny.

"Sympathy for the Devil," January 15 (5.12)

Derek's mother, Carolyn, makes a surprise visit to Seattle and meets Meredith for the first time, as Mark tries to conceal his relationship with Lexie from her as well; meanwhile, death row inmate William wishes to donate his organs to Bailey and Arizona's patient, as Owen and Cristina try to go on their first date.

"Stairway to Heaven," January 22 (5.13)

Bailey grows desperate as a patient's condition becomes more and more dire. Everyone in the hospital is stepping up to try to find the boy a new organ donor, including Meredith, who considers a death row patient's wish to die before execution. Meanwhile, an injury leaves Mark in a compromising position in the OR and Cristina awkwardly avoids Owen.

OMG, the whole death row inmate wanting to donate his organs, that sounds a lot like what happens in Jodi Picoult's 'Change of Heart'.
Get your own ideas Shonda! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!


people, stop saying "where is george" he quit the show, thats why he is not on it anymore, its like asking "where is burke", he's not gonna come back!!


as long as she doesnt tell him she is also doing him which i guess hed consider as cheating,,probably...i dont even know what to think with this bizzare (to say the least)story line..


I cannot wait to see Tyne Daly as Derek's mom.


Where's George? He's not even mentioned ONCE. Ugh. Hope the whole Derek's mother coming thing creates more MerDer moments.


thank you for the press releases. Does anybody know what guest stars will appear in those? I would like to know when Mary Mcdonnell will appear again in the show. happy new year!

You know, I might be a little crazy, but I'm wondering if that little boy might be Bailey's son?

Hmmm.... Happy New Year everyone!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.


Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
