'Grey's Anatomy' preview: Jesse Williams on Jackson's new role, chances of a reconciliation with April

Jackson Avery now has a lot more on his plate than he ever anticipated.

Thanks to the Harper Avery Foundation’s involvement in the purchasing of Seattle Grace — something that went down in the last new episode — the surgeon now finds himself sitting at the head of a conference room table and more than his fair share of big responsibilities. Or, as Jackson’s mother Catherine put it in the episode, “Now give your mama a kiss, Jackson; she just bought you a hospital.”

The problem? Seattle Grace is coming out of one of its most trying times — a near closure, a botched sale, and lots of unhappy employees. So how will Jackson handle the pressure? “We get to see Jackson kind of a little bit on roller skates — as anyone would be,” Jesse Williams tells EW. “Any of these characters who are given that responsibility — aside from Webber — it’s a lot to take in. It’s a little messy at first.”

'Grey's Anatomy' sneak peek: Is [spoiler] quitting?! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Thought that things were going to calm down at Seattle Grace now that all that sale business is done? Think again.

In fact, it seems the transition is going tougher than everyone imagined — especially poor Avery and Owen. On one end, Avery was unexpectedly thrusted into this position of power — and we’re not even sure he wants it. Meanwhile, Owen killed himself trying to keep the hospital afloat during tough times, and he’s still being looked at as the bad guy!

The pressure of it all is going to get to at least one of them and result in a big resignation. How do we know? We watched the exclusive clip below from next Thursdays brand new episode of Grey’s Anatomy.

Check it out for yourself and make sure to tune in March 14 to see if [spoiler]‘s “I quit” declaration sticks. READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' actress Chyler Leigh cast in NBC pilot

Former Grey’s Anatomy star Chyler Leigh has been cast in the NBC comedy pilot Holding Patterns, EW has confirmed. The comedy tells the story of “a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash.” So, it’s like an alternate universe version of what happened on Grey’s.

Leigh will play Leah, who — according to The Hollywood Reporter — is an intelligent slacker who lives with her two best friends in a Minneapolis duplex.

The Office‘s Justin Spitzer wrote and will executive produce the pilot.

'Grey's Anatomy' sneak peek: Is Meredith's baby in danger? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Are Meredith’s bad memories coming back to haunt her? Or is there something wrong with baby MerDer?

That’s exactly what you’ll be wondering during Thursday’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, when the pregnant surgeon — who has miscarried in the past — starts feeling uneasy about her pregnancy.

A few months ago, Grey’s consulting producer Dan Bucatinsky, who also stars on Scandal, had warned us that Meredith’s “natural trepidation” would soon take center stage. “I think there’s going to be fear around it — as with any woman who gets pregnant when she didn’t think she could,” he told Spoiler Room. “So I think she’s going to guard this pregnancy and her health. It’s going to be something that’s very fragile.”

Watch an exclusive clip from this week’s Grey’s Anatomy, airing Thursday at 9 p.m. ET, below. READ FULL STORY

'Revenge,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'The Office,' 'NCIS,' 'Glee': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Three important notices for all Spoiler Room readers:

1) Next week, I’ll be in California, so expect this column to be 30 percent less cold and bitter. 2) Don’t forget to send in your questions. (spoilerroom@ew.com) If you do — I don’t know if you know this — but all the puppies everywhere will cry. And 3) Space Jam is awesome — and so are you.

‘REVENGE’: WHO’S ON THE BOAT?
As we know, someone is going down with the Amanda. But who? We’ll definitely find out sooner than you might think.

In fact, Gabriel Mann tells me that the big reveal has already been filmed and “it’s a very touching, very action-packed” script. “It is very moving and very poignant, and let’s just say it kind of re-ups Emily’s game in a lot of different ways,” he says.

And while he couldn’t say a single thing about the victim (naturally), Mann did tease that the next few episodes will be the perfect build up. “From a personal point of view, I tend to think that Jack’s fatal flaw is his pride. He’s been keeping the goings on with the Stowaway close to the vest while Emily has been caught up in the Aiden of it all and I’ve been caught up in the NolCorp-takeover-Padma-Marco of it all. I think all of a sudden, our eyes are starting to turn back to the Stowaway and say, ‘What’s been happening here right under our nose?’ he says. “I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to have Emily and Nolan’s sights set on you with laser intensity. Nobody messes with our Jack.”

Now deep into filming the second half of the season, Mann promises that viewers will soon see all the plot points connecting. “I think the ways in which [creator] Mike Kelley has managed to weave all of these things that seem to be coming from a lot of different angles is really one of his fortes,” he says. “I think for viewers of the show — any questions that they may have had or confusion about what came up in the first half of the season will be answered very deliciously in the second half.”

Guesses? Hopes?

'Grey's Anatomy' preview: Jessica Capshaw teases Arizona's latest challenge

Arizona’s road to recovery following the plane crash that claimed the lives of two Seattle Grace doctors has been slow going, and Jessica Capshaw, who plays the bubbly pediatrician wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I think there’s so many different steps in covering this story accurately, and I think the writers have done such an incredible job of wanting to stay so close to the truth and actual experience of losing a limb,” she says. “In all that research I think they’ve picked up along the way the things that would fit into stories as far as Grey’s goes.”

'Grey's Anatomy' scoop: 'Hung' actor visiting Seattle Grace -- EXCLUSIVE

Grey’s Anatomy doesn’t return until next week, but here’s a bit of casting scoopage to tide you over: Hung actor Eddie Jemison is checking into Seattle Grace later this season.

Not much detail on this part yet. Jemison will play Stan Grossman, a smart-warm-nerdy type in a multi-episode guest star role.

Grey‘s earlier booked Entourage and Boston Legal actress Constance Zimmer for a multi-episode arc this season. In addition to his role on HBO’s Hung, Jemison co-starred in the three Oceans caper films. The ABC hit returns on Jan. 10.

Shonda Rhimes and Kerry Washington on 'Oprah's Next Chapter': Five highlights

Last night on Oprah’s Next Chapter, TV maven Shonda Rhimes and EW Entertainer of the Year Kerry Washington sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a wide-ranging chat that covered everything from Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy to… a–holes. (Before you ask, yes, they semi-bleeped.)

Below were the five most revealing moments from the trio’s chat:

* Oprah learned about Scandal via Twitter. Good work, #Gladiators! Even someone like Oprah, who one would assume is the first to know about pretty much everything, gets TV suggestions via Twitter! “On my Twitter feed, everybody was talking about it, and I was like ‘What is this show?!’” revealed O. “So I started watching because of Twitter.” Meanwhile, Washington admitted that she only watches Scandal because of the cast’s live chats on the social media network. Otherwise, she says, “I don’t really like to watch my work when it’s done. It’s a little bit uncomfortable. I literally watch because I want to be able to chat with the fans.” READ FULL STORY

Best of 2012 (Behind the Scenes): Shonda Rhimes pens McSteamy's obituary

After the unfortunate passing of Seattle Grace’s longtime lothario Mark “McSteamy” Sloan in September, Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes reflected on the character in an obituary penned for Entertainment Weekly. For more stories behind this year’s top TV and movie moments, click here for EW.com’s Best of 2012: Behind the Scenes coverage

By: Shonda Rhimes

A doctor shows up at Seattle Grace Hospital. He beds all the women. He sutures his own face. He wears a towel better than anyone can wear a towel in the history of wearing towels on television.

We call him McSteamy.

When Mark Sloan first appeared on Grey’s Anatomy in season 2, the original idea was to have him do one episode. Goodbye, Mark Sloan. But none of us planned on what would happen once we cast Eric Dane. His Mark Sloan wasn’t just flirty and handsome—Eric’s Mark Sloan was dirty and hot but also completely self-aware of what he was lacking in emotion and self-control. Eric’s Mark Sloan was smart enough to know he was a man-whore and sexy enough to make the audience believe in him anyway. From the moment ABC aired the scene in which Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) dubbed him McSteamy, I began to get letters from fans. And emails from friends. And phone calls from my mother. It was clear that we were going to need to see Mark Sloan back at Seattle Grace again.

Mark Sloan has been one of my all-time favorite characters to write. He’s the male surgical version of the hooker with the heart of gold. Yes, he seduces so many nurses that they form an actual organization dedicated to eradicating him (Nurses United Against Mark Sloan!). But he also helps a lonely man change his gender. He rebuilds the face of Jane Doe. He fixes cleft palates and lionitis bone deformities, and builds a little boy a pair of ears. He performs double arm transplants. He helps Callie (Sara Ramirez) recognize that her feelings for another woman are not something to be ignored. Okay, yes, he sleeps with his best friend’s wife. But he also supports his daughter when she chooses to put her baby up for adoption. Yes, he breaks his penis having sex with Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh). But he also falls madly in love with her. He’s a good man, Mark Sloan.

Well, he was a good man.

Last week, Mark Sloan succumbed to injuries sustained in the plane crash that took the life of fellow surgeon Alexandra Caroline Grey. By the time he died, he was no longer just a hot naked guy in a towel. He’d become more than McSteamy. Mark had grown to become a mentor, a true best friend, a father, and the love of Lexie Grey’s life.

After six seasons, the end of Mark Sloan was a giant loss for me as a writer and for the show. And for the fans. I like to believe that Mark is with Lexie somewhere. That those two characters are spending eternity together, getting to have the relationship they were never able to have when they were alive. Because, as Lexie’s dying words told us, she and Mark were “meant to be.”

Mark Everett Sloan died on September 27, 2012. He is survived by his daughter Sofia; his baby mamas, Callie and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw); his fellow doctors at Seattle Grace; and every woman who ever imagined what it might be like to have a little McSteamy between her sheets.

He will be missed by all.

CHANDRA WILSON ON BAILEY’S FUTURE … AND GREY’S ANATOMY

If you read my chat with Grey’s Anatomy‘s Chandra Wilson last week, then you know that Bailey will spend the next episodes “kicking and screaming” her way to the altar. But one thing Wilson thinks might help Bailey get into the groove a bit more? If Ben put a ring on it!

“My finger is light, that’s all I’m saying. It’s very, very light,” she says, laughing. “And he used to be an anesthesiologist. You’d think there would be some sort of bling involved. But her finger is rather light — at least for 2012. So we’ll see what happens going forward.” But regardless of Bailey’s left hand gets a little heavier, Wilson says Bailey is committed. “She’s going to see [it] through,” she says. “You can’t tell somebody you’re going to marry them and then play around.”

And while Bailey and Ben could have many happy years ahead of them, as always, questions are starting to arise about Grey‘s future. Now midway though its ninth season, Wilson says she is anything but tired. And while there won’t be official word about a tenth season for several months, she says she’s personally on board. “I think the consensus is that as long as our writers want to keep writing, we’re here to keep riding the ride,” she says. “As actors, we’re very cognizant of the opportunities we’ve been given. Sooner or later it will be the end.”
