Emmy Watch: Read 'Grey's Anatomy' script for Burke and Cristina's final confrontation

Leading up to the June 20 deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com is featuring interviews with some of the people whose names we hope to hear when nods are announced on July 10.

Separately, Sandra Oh and Isaiah Washington are powerful — but together, they’re undeniable. And when you add in words from the writers of Grey’s Anatomy, you’re just about guaranteed an unforgettable moment. In what we named one of the year’s 50 Best TV Scenes — find the whole list in the Entertainment Weekly issue on stands now — Preston Burke and Cristina Yang finally talked about the moment that shaped both of their lives: the day he left her at the altar. Their chat was seven years in the making, as Cristina finally got some closure from the man who had broken her seemingly unbreakable heart. READ FULL STORY

Farewell, Cristina: Sandra Oh and 'Grey's Anatomy' creator Shonda Rhimes say goodbye to a beloved character

She’s an ambitious woman, to say the least. A straight-talker whose tough spirit has carried her to the top of a field that requires a most delicate touch. A woman who mends hearts for a living and, ironically, has had to work the hardest to fix her own. And, all the while, she’s one half of a friendship so pure and honest that it has brought us to tears (several, several times).

Above all, Cristina Yang, the doctor portrayed fearlessly by Sandra Oh for 10 years on Grey’s Anatomy, is a survivor — and not just because she managed to be one of few people to survive the show’s numerous disasters. So when Cristina’s former mentor and love, Dr. Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington), offered her the position of a lifetime two weeks ago, we couldn’t fault her for jumping at the chance to lead a top-of-the-line research facility. As Burke said, she’d earned the opportunity. And as Cristina prepares to hop on a plane and leave Grey Sloan Memorial for good, EW spoke with Oh and show creator Shonda Rhimes about the journey that’s led to the bittersweet departure of a fond friend, doctor and dancing buddy.

Four 'Grey's Anatomy' actors score new, two-year deals

Four Grey’s Anatomy faves have inked new contracts that would ensure their return to the series through season 12, EW confirms.

Sara Ramirez, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, and James Pickens Jr.’s new two-year deals come as series regular Sandra Oh prepares to exit the medical drama at the end of the current season. Official word of the show’s 11th season renewal is expected in the coming weeks. READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy': Inside Burke's return -- EXCLUSIVE

The day that Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington) packed up his lucky scrub cap, his trumpet, and that picture of his grandmother that sat beside the bed he shared with his then-wife-to-be Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh), is frozen in time for Grey’s Anatomy fans. The image of Cristina being cut out of her wedding dress by her best friend as she hyperventilated still — even seven years later — stirs feelings of rage and anger and sadness on behalf of the character whose heart was broken so brutally. So as fans await Burke’s return to the long-running medical drama — his first in-person appearance since the actor’s headline-grabbing exit in 2007 — creator Shonda Rhimes understands the anxiety. “I’ve had some people say, ‘I want them to get back together,’ I’ve had some people say, ‘They can’t possibly get back together,’ and I always tell people they need to remember that we’re talking about Cristina Yang here,” she says. “It’s not gonna be about whatever you expect it to be about.”

For Oh, whose impending exit from the show will start to come together on-screen in a major way during tonight’s episode, the weight of her character’s time apart from Burke — and her time apart from her one-time acting partner, for that matter — was something that charged their scenes together. “It was very energized — as it would be with the person you were about to marry. ‘I used to look into your face all the time — and now where I am looking into your face!’” she says, speaking to EW for a profile that appears in the issue on stands tomorrow. “There was a lot of things to play. And I hope it translates well.” READ FULL STORY

Tessa Ferrer, Gaius Charles are leaving 'Grey's Anatomy'

It looks like Sandra Oh is not alone in saying goodbye to Grey’s Anatomy after season 10.

EW has confirmed that current series regulars Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles, who play residents Leah Murphy and Shane Ross, will not have their contracts picked up for next season. It’s unclear how their characters will leave the show, but let’s just hope they get out of Seattle in one piece, which is more than we can say for quite a few members of the last batch of interns.

Ferrer and Charles joined Grey’s Anatomy as interns last season, along with Camilla Luddington and Jerikka Hinton, before all four were made series regulars. Now, Ferrer’s Leah and Charles’ Shane are residents best known for their romantic entanglements and, most recently, Leah’s decision to file a complaint against the hospital that resulted in a non-fraternization policy.

It’s not yet known if Ferrer and Charles could return for guest appearances in the future, according to Deadline, who first reported the news.

Caterina Scorsone to return to 'Grey's Anatomy'

Season 10 of Grey’s Anatomy is quickly filling up with familiar faces. First, there was the news that Isaiah Washington will return as Dr. Burke, and now, EW has confirmed that Caterina Scorsone will once again set foot in Seattle.

Scorsone plays Amelia, Derek’s youngest sister and a fellow neurosurgeon, who many fans might recognize from the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Private Practice. Scorsone appeared briefly on Grey’s but was a regular on Practice, where her character’s main story dealt with drug addiction. After Amelia’s fiance died of an overdose, she got clean in enough time to give birth to a child that had only half a brain.

By the end of Practice‘s run, Amelia was clean and happily involved with fellow doctor James. As for her return to Grey’s, we only know that she will first appear sometime in May and will then recur for the rest of season 10. TV Guide first broke the news of her casting.

'Grey's Anatomy' shocker: Isaiah Washington returning!

Dr. Burke is checking back in to Grey’s Anatomy.

EW has learned that Isaiah Washington is set to reprise his role as the heart surgeon/former flame of Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) in an episode airing in May. This marks Washington’s first appearance on the ABC medical drama since season 3, when his character left Cristina at the altar and the actor was let go from the series.

Creator Shonda Rhimes said in a statement that the character’s return is an integral part of providing closure to Cristina Yang, whose portrayer Oh is set to leave the series at the end of this season.  “It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should,” Rhimes said. “Burke is vital to that journey — he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang.”

Since leaving Grey’s Anatomy, Washington has appeared in bit parts on TV shows like Single Ladies and Law & Order: LA and will next appear in the CW’s 100, premiering this month.

Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

'Grey's Anatomy' post-mortem: Sarah Drew opens up about the what's next for April and Jackson

If the latest Grey’s Anatomy left you downright giddy, you’re not alone. Sarah Drew was just as thrilled and surprised as the rest of us after she first read the script, which had more than one big moment for April Kepner. READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' sneak peek: Meredith and Derek spar, Cristina teases wedding chaos

This sneak peek of Thursday’s new episode of Grey’s Anatomy is a hair over a minute long, but it left us with so many questions!

First, how long are Meredith and Derek going to be fighting? On one hand, Meredith has a right to be angry, as she is in this clip. A promise is a promise, and in this case, her husband had agreed to take a step back from work to help with the children. On the other hand, the man got a call from the president of the United States! (Um, probably not this one.) I’m guessing this could be a long debate, folks.

Second, in the midst of Meredith and Derek’s martial spat, Cristina walks in and announces with joy that the drama at the wedding has left her giddy. (“I’m not just a friend, I’m a fan,” Cristina says, referring to April.) As you recall, the last new episode left off right after Jackson declared his love for April. Does this mean April turned Jackson down? Or not? Cristina, elaborate!

Help us pick this apart more by checking out the exclusive clip below: READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy': Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey renew contracts for two years

Sandra Oh might be on her way out, but Meredith and Derek are sticking around.

EW has confirmed that Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, Grey’s Anatomy‘s longstanding golden couple, have signed new two-year contracts with the show, meaning Mer-Der are here to stay for at least a while longer. Grey’s Anatomy, while not officially renewed by ABC, remains a lock for an 11th season. READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy': Sarah Drew previews April's wedding, what made Ellen Pompeo scream at a table read

Grey’s Anatomy weddings are sort of like a (super dramatic) rite of passage on the show. There was the time Cristina had her eyebrows waxed off,  and then there was Meredith and Derek’s quick ceremony at the courthouse. Callie and Arizona had a fairly drama-free wedding, and Bailey was able to enjoy her big day once she made it to the church. And let’s not forget Cristina’s living room wedding, or the time Alex recited stolen (but sweet) wedding vows to Izzie. The lesson: Big events are never perfect on Grey’s, they will probably make you cry, and a wedding ring does not mean forever in this world.

But in tonight’s mid-season finale, it’s April’s turn to walk down the aisle. Will she say “I do” to her hunky EMT or will she hold out for her even hunkier surgeon? We caught up with Sarah Drew to talk love triangles and the “shocking” last five minutes of the episode:

'Grey's Anatomy' mid-season finale sneak peek: Alex's trip down memory lane turns dark -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Alex Karev’s words — and Justin Chambers’ acting — might give you chills in this week’s Grey’s Anatomy.

The doc’s emotions have been simmering under his tough-guy surface ever since his dad first appeared — or, really, reappeared — and in this week’s mid-season finale, everything will come to a boil.

It doesn’t start off that way, of course. Alex finally sits down with his dad and even starts reminiscing with him about a trip to the carnival when Alex was a kid. But things take a dark turn when Alex’s mother comes up in the conversation. For anyone who’s watched the show from the beginning and is familiar with the struggles of Alex’s past, this is a vastly important character moment for him.

Watch the exclusive sneak peek below to see what we mean.
