It is getting close to the return of Grey's Anatomy and spoilers are starting to come out.

TV Guide shared the big details about what will be happening on Grey's Anatomy when it returns. It turns out that Arizona will be headed to jail, but it is not because she is in trouble.

Jessica Capshaw, who plays Arizona, shared the details about what is going on with her character on Grey's Anatomy. She said, "Arizona's been called in on a case at a maximum security prison for an inmate who can't go to a regular hospital because she's that dangerous." It turns out that Bailey and Jo are going to be helping her out on this case as well. Jessica explained saying, "After the longest day of all of their lives, they all go to a maximum security prison, where they are meant to do something that seems like a pretty simple procedure. It's truly kind of creepy at the same time as it's super provocative and exciting."

So far, Jessica isn't sharing the exact details of what happens in this upcoming episode of Grey's Anatomy, but she did reveal that after she did the table read she was "terrified." It sounds like it will be an interesting episode totally different than anything the viewers have seen before. They are keeping quiet about what this prisoner actually did or what is wrong with them.

As ET Online shared, it looks like Alex Karev could be going to jail too, but nobody knows the details for sure. Alex's trial was supposed to begin the next day, but he made a choice to do something else instead. He decided to take a plea deal, but his best friend Meredith Grey did not agree with this decision at all. They didn't actually show if he went through with it or not. If Alex did, then he will go to prison for two years. If not, then he will go through a trial, and everyone will have to wait and see what happens. It would be pretty shocking if Alex went to jail and would really shake things up on the show. He did this because of Jo's confession. The Inquistr also shared a few spoilers that Shonda Rhimes shared as well. Here is what Meredith revealed on Grey's Anatomy.

"I'm married to a guy who almost beat me to death. I can't divorce him because I ran away from him. Jo Wilson isn't my real name. That's why I couldn't marry you. That's how this whole thing started."
Jo was afraid that if she testified, then this man would be able to find her. Alex decided to take the plea deal so that he could protect her from having to do that, but maybe he will find another way around it when Grey's Anatomy returns. Meredith doesn't want Alex to do it though and explained to him.
"You think this is noble what you're doing? It isn't. It's giving up. It's buying into everything you've ever said about yourself and I won't let you do it. You will be destroyed. Your life, your career, everything will be finished. Who you are will be gone."
