A new episode of Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursday night on ABC, and there are some big developments ahead. April and Jackson face a key test result regarding their unborn baby while Owen and Callie consider dipping their toes back into the dating pool. Bailey, Meredith, and Maggie are utilizing new technology to tackle a case, and fans are anxious to see how it all plays out. What Grey’s Anatomy spoilers are available for the February 5 episode?
Perhaps the part that fans are most anxious to tune in for is regarding Jackson and April’s baby. As viewers saw in previous episodes, there is a chance that their baby has a fatal birth defect called osteogenesis imperfecta, or brittle bone disease. During Thursday’s new episode, titled “The Bed’s Too Big Without You,” Arizona will perform a test that will give April and Jackson a more definitive answer regarding the baby’s potential issues.
The Grey’s Anatomy spoiler previews show Dr. Herman telling Jackson and April that she has the test results. As viewers have seen, the two have struggled with different approaches to handling the weight of this possible birth defect, and there are big decisions to be made if the baby indeed has the condition.
Though fans will have to tune in Thursday to see what the results are, some would say it doesn’t sound good. The synopsis for the next episode via TV Guide is titled “All I Could Do Is Cry,” and it reveals that April and Jackson face a tough decision regarding their baby. It seems this potentially tragic and devastating situation will play out for a bit yet.
The couple is especially worried about the baby having Type II, a particularly brutal type of the disease. While April and Jackson will face potentially having to terminate the pregnancy, Sarah Drew, who plays April, did let a bit of a cat out of the bag on this one.
Drew chatted with Access Hollywood and shared that she had filmed a very long day involving the labor and delivery of this baby, and she went into labor with her newest family addition in real life just a matter of hours later. She’s spoken about her daughter Hannah’s recent birth, which had its own challenges, as she came quite early and had to stay in the hospital for some time.
At this point, then, it seems that April and Jackson move forward with the pregnancy of their baby boy. Does he survive? Will he be healthy? That much isn’t known yet, and fans will be finding out more soon.
Also ahead in the Season 11, Episode 10 show is some fun banter for Owen and Callie. Entertainment Weekly shares the Grey’s Anatomy spoiler sneak peek. The two meet up for a drink and she sees a tech rep they just met with at the bar. Callie nudges Owen to make a move on the rep, who had been flirting a bit earlier in her presentation. Owen is resistant, so Callie goes over to pave the way.
As it happens, however, the rep doesn’t feel that Owen is her type. When Callie questions that, and points out that the rep had been flirting, Torres is thrown a bit to learn that the rep had been trying to flirt with her, not Owen. Does this mean Callie will give romance a fresh try, or is it too soon?
Viewers will also see Dr. Herman overseeing others in some fetal surgery and Bailey, Maggie, and Meredith will utilize the 3-D printer to gain unique insight into a patient’s tumor.
While there are multiple storyline arcs playing out in Thursday’s episode, fans may well be most anxious to follow along with Jackson and April’s journey. Will they ultimately welcome a healthy baby boy, or is there more heartbreak ahead for the couple? Tune into Grey’s Anatomy airing on ABC on Thursday, February 5 to find out what happens next.
