Grey's Anatomy kicks off its 11th season — in a new time slot! — on Thursday, so what's in store for the docs at Grey Sloan Memorial?
Answer: Plenty of drama — both at home and at work. Would you expect anything less?! We know that Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) will deal with their fair share of ups and downs as he mulls a move to Washington, D.C., and that Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) may find themselves on the rocks again as they deal with trying to have a baby through a surrogate.
Grey Sloan Memorial is losing two more members of its staff.
Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles, who play Leah Murphy and Shane Ross onGrey's Anatomy, will not be returning next season, sources confirm to TVGuide.com.
It's taken a while, but Grey's Anatomy's once bubbly pediatric surgeon Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) has risen from the ashes of the plane crash. With a new sense of confidence after losing her leg, Arizona has begun to accept that she is whole, even if she's missing a part of herself. Some of Arizona's growth nearly ended her marriage to Callie (Sara Ramirez), but she has come out the other side ready to move on with her life and even convinced her wife to move into a new house so the couple could really start fresh after her infidelity with Dr. Boswell (Hilarie Burton).

But Arizona's resolve will be tested during Thursday's episode (9/8c on ABC) when she's hit by a gurney that results in the destruction of her prosthetic leg. "She has a terrible, awful, no good, very bad day," Capshaw tells TVGuide.com from the set of the ABC medical drama. "The idea behind this episode was...
It's hard not to want to believe in talents like Alfonso Cuaron (of the amazing Gravity) and J.J. Abrams (no TV explanation necessary). These two very busy visionaries lend their names, and Cuaron his directing chops (in the pilot episode, anyway), for NBC's otherwise painfully derivative Believe (Monday, 10/9c), which plays like one of those middling Stephen King melodramas about supernaturally gifted children on the run for their lives.
Cuaron elevates the stock clichés with visual motifs of a butterfly providing mystical guidance and a dizzying flock of pigeons (my idea of a living nightmare) subduing a Big Bad Female Assassin in a loft. It's a handsome looking pilot, even at its most predictably familiar. And as Bo, the spunky little girl whose psychic and paranormal gifts seem to have no end — or, maddeningly, definition — Johnny Sequoyah is agreeable company, never too cute even when the script calls for Bo to be cloyingly precious. Because believe it or not, Believe feels it necessary to squelch the chase-thriller elements with schmaltzy subplots reminiscent of Fox's short-lived Touch. Bo knows goodness, and in between close calls as she eludes her well-funded potential kidnappers, she somehow finds time to inspire a young doctor to get past his crisis of confidence.
