ABC has officially released the synopsis for season 14, episode 3, and our heads are spinning with all of the things it could mean. The episode titled, “Go Big or Go Home,” will air on October 5, 2017, and it’s bound to be a good one for fans of Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo).
“Harper Avery arrives at Grey Sloan, putting Bailey on edge. A familiar face from Meredith’s past returns as a patient, and Amelia tries to manage a secret,” the ABC synopsis reads. Of course, we already have one big question: who will be the familiar face?!
Grey’s has always been about Meredith, and her life, friends and family, and career as a doctor, and clearly season 14 is no different. What we really want to know, however, is will the familiar face that comes into Meredith’s hospital room (or the OR) be a familiar face to fans? We’re hoping the answer is yes.
If the person from Meredith’s past is a character we’ve already met, then we have a few suggestions — and hopes — for who it could be. For starters, we’re voting for a Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) and Meredith reunion. They are best friends, and they’ve been apart for way too long! Plus, she’s one of the few characters that left the show in such a manner that she could realistically come back.
Another fan-favorite who could return would be Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh), who has popped back in and out of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital on occasion. She is technically linked to many docs at the hospital, but she is closely linked to Meredith, and a definite favorite amongst fans.
Executive producer Debbie Allen previously teased Meredith’s “self-analysis and her own rediscovery of herself,” so there’s a chance that this mystery patient is one of the many things that will have her reexamining her life and choices as a doctor.
Who do you think is going to come back into Meredith’s life?
Grey’s Anatomy returns for season 14 on September 28, 2017 on ABC.
