Richard and Ellis aren’t the only Seattle Grace docs getting the prequel treatment in the Feb. 18 episode of Grey’s Anatomy. The time-tripping hour will also flash back to the early 2000s when Bailey was an intern and she was being menaced by a supervisor from hell (Heroes‘ Missi Pyle).
“We’re going to see Bailey when she still called herself Mandy and had not yet learned to speak up,” explains series creator Shonda Rhimes, adding that the first time she laid eyes on Chandra Wilson “all Mandy’d up,” her heart broke. “I know that girl — hell, I was that girl. Mandy is Bailey’s inner geek, and Chandra plays the Mandy of it all brilliantly.”
What do you think of Bailey’s pre-’Nazi’ look?
