Grey’s Anatomy brought in five new interns for season 9. Here’s your chance to finally learn their names as well as some details about upcoming episodes. Spoilers ahead.
In an interview with TVGuide, the Grey’s newbies spill details for some upcoming episodes, including the fact that the interns will get an episode told from their point of view and that the wedding Shonda Rhimes teased before the start of the season will be Bailey’s.
“We see the interns pairing up with the doctors [and] romantic stuff happens,” Gaius Charles (Shane, who Cristina calls “Happy”) told TVGuide. Though it’s unclear whether those pairings will happen at the wedding, Charles shares that while assigned to April, his character will be removing a growth from a woman’s private parts. “It’s gross and humiliating, but some good comes out of it,” Charles said. “Shane and April form a friendship.”
As for Tina Majorino’s character, Heather, who we last saw having a one-night stand with Alex and is dubbed “Dopey” by Cristina, she’ll be stuck in the middle of a Mer-Der fight. “Meredith asks Heather to do some research on a procedure to help Derek’s hand,” Majorino said. “It blows up, and Derek ends up screaming at Meredith and Heather.”
Then there’s Camilla Luddington’s Jo who is assigned to Alex.
“[He] gets under her skin as no one else has done and calls her ‘Princess,'” the former True Blood star said.
Could her hate become love for the surly and yet lovable Karev?
Stephanie, played by Jerrika Hinton, apparently has a secret crush on one of the doctors. According to TVGuide, she’ll have trouble stringing a sentence together in front of said crush at Bailey’s wedding (Who knew Bailey was one to invite interns to her big day?). Who could her crush be? They’ll be sharing an “intimate encounter” that Hinton described as “definitely charged.”
Finally, there’s Leah, played by Tessa Ferrer. She hasn’t had as much screen time as the other Seattle Grace newbies but she’ll be getting a taste of the Queen of Mean when she’s assigned to monitor babies with Stephanie. “It gets out of control and puts our jobs in jeopardy,” Ferrer said. Like her fellow female interns, she’ll also get involved with Alex…and, like most, end up heartbroken.
Tune in for the intern-centric episode Dec. 6 and Bailey’s wedding Dec. 13.
Grey’s Anatomy 9×06 “Second Opinion” airs Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.
The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.
Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.
Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.
Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.
Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.
Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.
In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.
This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.
So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?
My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.
Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.
Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?
Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.
A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.
Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.
After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.
