Katherine Heigl Returning to Grey's Anatomy ... Briefly

at . Comments

We've got good Grey's Anatomy casting news and bad Grey's Anatomy casting news.

The good: Katherine Heigl will grace us with our presence on the January 21 episode.

The bad: That filmed before Heigl's maternity leave. So she'll be gone again soon.

That's right, Heigl's previous five-episode hiatus was granted by the network so that she could film her new movie. Her next hiatus comes as she adopted a baby girl from Korea.

For one week at least, it looks like estranged newlyweds Izzie and Alex are finally going to have a heart-to-heart ... or have it out. Perhaps a heated combination of the two.

The episode description says: "Izzie returns, hoping to reconcile with Alex." Don't hold your breath. The episode title:"I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked." Hmm ...

Izzie is Back

Alex and Izzie reunite January 21 ... but for how long?

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.

Richard

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)
