Grey’s Anatomy is back, and it is obvious from the first two episodes of Season 12 that things have changed in a major way at Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital. There is a definite change in the mood of the series. It is lighter and more fun. Shonda Rhimes made it clear she was looking to change things in a big way this season.
The series will hit a major milestone later this month, and it is time for the characters to celebrate their success; Grey’s Anatomy, Episode 250 for the series, will air on October 22. TV Line shared a teaser for the landmark episode this week, and the tease comes from Jessica Capshaw, the actress behind Arizona Robbins.
The last episode saw her trying to handle the news that Callie met someone new. This new person was someone she felt very positive about. Arizona will have her own new relationship this season, but it has not started yet.

Right now, Arizona is focused on taking care of herself. Jessica Capshaw teased a bit about Arizona’s new Season 12 attitude to TV Line.
“It’s been Arizona doubling down on herself and trying to have a lighter, brighter, happier, sweeter, funnier [attitude]. I feel like she’s back to [being who she was in] the beginning, but with all the knowledge she’s accrued.”
Arizona has been through a lot since she arrived at the hospital several seasons ago. Fans will get to see a happier Arizona in the weeks to come. TV Line revealed that Episode 250 for the series features Capshaw’s favorite scene of the season so far.
As for Owen, he will have some new issues from his past pop up at some point this season. TV Line also shares these Owen-centric spoilers. Someone from his past will cause some issues for the doctor. It has not been revealed who this person might be.
Many fans might jump to the conclusion that Sandra Oh is bringing back Cristina Yang, but that is not teased at all in these spoilers. Kevin McKidd has only teased that the new arrival would cause some problems for Owen. He does not handle the arrival well at all. TV Line has hinted that the new arrival is Martin Henderson, who is set to join the series later this season, but they could not confirm that in any way.
As for the next episode, Grey’s Anatomy Season 12, Episode 3, titled,”I Choose You,” ABC already has a sneak peek available.
The big drama on the next Grey’s Anatomy episode will involve Jo and Alex. The sneak peek shows her telling Stephanie she is pregnant. She has not told Alex yet, and Stephanie pushes her to do it. The next scene in the clip shows Jo stuck on an elevator with Alex, and she tries to tell him in her own way. The moment ends up being more awkward than joyous. The clip ends before she actually tells him she is pregnant.

Alex’s childhood and his concerns about becoming a father himself have been a huge part of his story since the series began. Is he now ready to be a dad? Alex has grown up a lot over the last ten years. When he married Izzie, he was still a bit on the immature side. This relationship with Jo has been positive for both of them. It has opened her up, and it has made him grow up. Fans will need to tune in on Thursday night to find out how Jo and Alex handle her secret.
Grey’s Anatomy will continue to air on ABC on Thursday nights. What do you think of Season 12 so far?
