It's a true Throwback Thursday edition of Grey's Anatomy this week, with all kinds of new information about Ellis Grey (Kate Burton) and her relationship with Richard (James Pickens Jr.) coming to light.

While hiding from the shower buddies, a jealous Jo (Camilla Luddington) tells Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton) that she's missing Cristina. Who agrees with her?
