This week's Grey's Anatomy featured a harrowing tale of a mother (Sarah Chalke) trying to get her son treatment, even though every time he was diagnosed, it ended up being wrong. The tale was meant to help viewers in case their children were afflicted with the same baffling ailment, Kawasaki Disease — which will hopefully pay off in the long run.

Could love be in the air for Alex and Jo?
Aside from the hospital having to close its doors, that's been the big question on Grey's Anatomy this season as Alex (Justin Chambers) has grown closer to intern Jo (Camilla Luddington) — whom, to be honest, many fans hated in the beginning of the season. But with the help of Alex, Jo has gone from an amalgamation of the worst traits of the Fab Five to settling into a less neurotic character that we could maybe, possibly get on board with.
Grey's Anatomy Scoop: Can the plane crash survivors save Seattle Grace?
The Grey's Anatomy newbies haven't done an interview...until now.

On a day off from Grey's Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo is at home under a backyard umbrella sipping a Pelligrino by the pool and savoring the last days of summer. Nearby, her 3-year-old daughter, Stella, plays. Life is good. Thanks to hefty pay hikes, Pompeo's character Meredith, Patrick Dempsey's Derek and Sandra Oh's Cristina were all spared in the season finale plane crash that left Lexie (Chyler Leigh) dead and Mark (Eric Dane) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) fighting for their lives. As Grey's begins its ninth season on Sept. 27, I found Pompeo to be extremely grateful for all her good fortune and happy to be back at a job she loves.
