Over the years, Grey's Anatomy has seen its fair share of new characters — like a real hospital, there's a revolving door of incoming interns and outgoing residents. Hate them or love them, this season's interns have taken on more prominent roles. We've already shared our, ahem, opinions on the polarizing quintet, but with the ABC medical drama heading towards its ninth season finale, we're reexamining each intern to decide whether they should stick around next season...

When Grey's Anatomy returns Thursday (9/8c on ABC), there will be plenty of changes going down at Seattle Grace. First and foremost, Jackson (Jesse Williams), who was only promoted to attending this season to fill the void left by Mark Sloan (Eric Dane), is now actually in charge of the whole hospital.

With Seattle Grace thisclose to closing its doors, Dr. Cahill will be trying new ways to spruce up the joint in Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy (9/8c on ABC), which sees a potential buyer, a group called Pegasus, tour the hospital. One of those improvements — besides closing the ER — includes marketing the hospital with the face of one of its own doctors.
Mega Buzz: Who's leaving Seattle Grace?!
Naturally, two of Seattle Grace's McHotties, Jackson (Jesse Williams) and Alex (Justin Chambers), will be first in line for that coveted position. "Jackson and Alex have...
Seattle Grace may have to close its doors — at least the ER, for now — unless the doctors of Grey's Anatomy can figure out how to keep the hospital alive. The obvious solution would be for the plane crash survivors, who were each awarded $15 million, to donate their money, but even that may not help.
"It's going to take...

Chandra Wilson recently celebrated a momentous occasion. No, we're not talking about the impending nuptials between her character Bailey and boyfriend Ben (Jason George). The original Grey's Anatomy castmember stepped behind the camera for the seventh time to direct this Thursday's episode, which includes a story line that she not only pitched, but also hits very close to home for the 43-year-old actress.

Below, Wilson discusses taking another spin in the director's chair, as well as whether Ben and Bailey will actually make it down the aisle — not if Bailey has a say in it! — and what's in store for the returns of Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) and Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw). Get the scoop:
Now that the fates of the Grey's Anatomy docs have been revealed, ABC has finally released the Season 9 trailer, which shows not only what's in store for this Thursday's episode — which flashes back to when the docs were rescued from the plane crash — but also from the forthcoming episodes... and boy, are these new scenes juicy!

Grey's Anatomy will have something in common with Glee next season!
The ABC medical drama, which has been set at Seattle Grace since the show's first season, will split its time between two locations in Season 9.
Eric Dane leaving Grey's Anatomy
The harrowing and tragic season finale saw the Stranded Six — Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Derek (Patrick Dempsey), Cristina (Sandra Oh), Mark (Eric Dane), Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) — crash-land in the mountains, with Lexie subsequently succumbing to her injuries. (Apparently, she might not be the only one to die since Eric Dane is also exiting the series sometime next season). Even though there seemed to be no hope on the horizon in the closing moments of the finale, the doctors will eventually get rescued since the Season 9 premiere will jump ahead two to three months, executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells TVGuide.com. But that doesn't mean we won't see what transpired in those mountains. Get the scoop from Rhimes below, including Derek's new troubles, Bailey's wedding (!) and Calzona's fate:

Six doctors — Meredith, Derek, Cristina, Mark, Lexie and Arizona — crash-landed somewhere in the woods on their way to Boise. Though we'd like to think that April (Sarah Drew), who failed her boards, would kill herself and save us the torment of a more shocking loss — the promos seem to indicate that it's one of the Stranded Six who won't make it out alive.

It's the moment we've been waiting for: the Grey's Anatomy residents are taking their medical boards this Thursday, and we'll finally get to see how each of the docs handled it. By the looks of the sneak peek below, Jackson (Jesse Williams) is just as nerve-wracked as the rest of them. Why? Well, he did just sleep with his best friend, and then learn that his mentor and his mother hooked up. TVGuide.com turned to Williams to get the scoop on the medical boards, the future for April (Sarah Drew) and Jackson — and Jesus, apparently — and how Jackson will handle a possible Slexie reunion...
