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

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

Richard: Chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight, Stevens. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.
