After what feels like the longest hiatus ever, Grey's Anatomy will finally return with 12 straight episodes beginning Thursday (9/8c, ABC) until the show's season finale in May.
When last we left the doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial, Jackson interrupted April's wedding to Matthew to declare his love for her, much to the shock and dismay of Stephanie and pretty much everyone else in attendance. Meanwhile, back at the hospital, Shane boldly and stupidly decided to be a hot shot and take the lead on an emergency surgery to fix the heart of Alex's father, which did not go well. So, what's next? TVGuide.com hit the set to get the scoop on each of the docs:
Wedding bells may be ringing during the Grey's Anatomy midseason finale on Thursday (9/8c, ABC). But there are a few hurdles for April (Sarah Drew) to get over before she says "I do" to Matthew (Justin Bruening). First on April's list will be getting her best friend and former lover Jackson (Jesse Williams) to show up. But that does not mean the quirky doc is having second thoughts about walking down the aisle.

Love that Caroline is helping Stefan through his PTSD! Will anything romantic develop between them on The Vampire Diaries? — Ginger
NATALIE: Do we have a new love triangle on our hands? Not quite -- Stefan will be spending a lot of time with Katherine actually, as they help each other in their darkest moments. Meanwhile, Caroline will have her hands busy with someone else very soon.

Oh, Grey's Anatomy, you had me at hello... and you lost me at Bailey's OCD.
I've stuck with the show that made Shonda Rhimes a household name through Izzie's (Katherine Heigl) ghost sex, the Alex/Ava saga, "Intern Fight Club," and even that god-awful musical episode. When people ask me why I'm still watching Grey's, currently limping through its 10th season, my response has always been: "I'm going down with that ship." But Season 10 has me on the verge of jumping overboard. Here are six reasons why I'm ready to give up on Grey's:
Is this Alice or Alias? Something to ponder while navigating the deluxe rabbit-hole theme-park ride of ABC's Once Upon a Time in Wonderland spinoff (Thursday, 8/7c), in which a feisty and literally kick-ass Alice (Sophie Lowe) battles her way out of insane-asylum confinement with Sydney Bristow-level brio. She even has a Will Tippen-like sidekick in the sheepishly raffish Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha of the British Being Human), who stands by as Alice goes all action heroine.
