Mega Buzz: A Grey's Romance, an Emotional Bones and a Desperate Hookup

Chyler Leigh, David Boreanaz, Marcia Cross

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Will Mark and Lexie ever get back together on Grey's Anatomy? -- Jeannie
NATALIE:
Just because Jackson and Lexie broke up doesn't mean that Lexie will go running back to Mark, particularly since he isn't single at the moment. Yes, Julia will still very much be in the picture when Grey's returns in January, though don't expect Lexie to throw any more softballs at her chest -- not literal softballs anyway.

Can you tell us anything about next week's Bones? I heard that David Boreanaz killed it! — montgomerysloan, via Twitter

Is there a chance that Lexie and Mark will reunite on Grey's Anatomy? —Jessica
NATALIE:
Mark still clearly cares about Lexie, which won't go unnoticed by Jackson's mother (Debbie Allen), who makes an appearance in this week Grey's.
