There are just three weeks to the Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 midseason finale, and some of the cast has already spilled some secrets. “Justice” will be gained in the episode, which will leave fans at the edges of their seats for the midseason premiere in January.
Entertainment Weekly got the chance to sit down with Kelly McCreary, Jason George, Jerrika Hinton, and Giacomo Gianniotti to find out more about the upcoming Grey’s storylines. Two of the four are already in the middle of two major storylines for the Grey’s Anatomy characters, but there’s going to be a little about one of the others.
According to George, there will be “justice” in the Season 13 midseason finale. It’s unclear whether this is going to be justice against Alex Karev or justice against another character in the show. Maybe justice will be served for each of the young doctors, who Catherine Avery believes haven’t gained the best education they could have gained. There are fears that Richard Webber will be fired from the hospital, as Catherine believes the shortfalls in teaching lie with him.
Other fans are worried that Karev will be fired from Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. His trial is coming up, and it is possible that he will go to jail for his actions. Justin Chambers, who plays the character, has already hinted that he will be leaving Grey’s Anatomy.
While the Karev storyline—with Gianniotti’s DeLuca—continues, there is also McCreary’s storyline with Ellen Pompeo. Maggie has asked Meredith not to lie to her anymore, and she instantly decided to lie about who was at the door to keep her fling with Riggs a secret. That secret will come crashing down very soon, and it is possible that the sisterly relationship will become “rubble” in the midseason finale.
Meredith is already stuck with being the only one on Karev’s side at the moment. George explains that there will be more questions over why Meredith sticks by Karev, and she perfectly defends her decisions.
Who will be the other character to get a bigger storyline? Well, Hinton says that her character’s past will be explored further. Grey’s fans already know that Hinton’s Stephanie had sickle cell when she was younger. Entertainment Weekly brought up the question about seeing a young Stephanie in an upcoming episode. Hinton shared that this was going to happen to share more about how she became the doctor she is today.
This will mean two residents’ pasts will be explored more in Grey’s Anatomy Season 13. Jo Wilson’s past will have to be explored at some point, considering the secret she shared with DeLuca in the Season 12 finale. Camilla Luddington, who plays Jo, has said that the abusive storyline will be explained in more depth soon. It’s important to get this storyline perfect.
Right now, Jo and DeLuca are forming a close friendship, possibly leading to a relationship. However, Karev will need to know about the abusive past, so he can understand why his girlfriend keeps turning down his proposals but was willing to have a baby. It’s only fair on Karev that he finds this out.
Fans are currently angry that Jo isn’t standing by Karev. When she was the one in trouble for similar circumstances, Karev was there for her to make sure she was protected. That showed just how much Karev loved Jo. Surely Jo should remember that and be willing to do the same.
Fans have so much to look forward to with the Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 midseason finale. You will need to put up with a stressful ending and break until the midseason premiere in January, though. Better to be prepared now, right?
