In case you missed the Grey’s Anatomy finale in May, here’s a little refresher: Owen and Amelia probably got married; Ben helped April deliver her and Jackson’s baby girl; Arizona and Callie came to a custody arrangement for Sofia; Maggie told Meredith she had the hots for Riggs, with whom Mer just had a four-time-in-one-night fling; and Alex beat the crap out of DeLuca, thinking he was hooking up with Jo.
The last storyline seemed like just another fight/misunderstanding but ABC just released its first teaser trailer of the upcoming 13th season and the drama between Karev, Jo and DeLuca is front and centre. Because apparently the smackdown Alex laid on Andrew was pretty major, so much so that it looks like the intern is now fighting for his life.
How?! Yes, Karev’s punches were unrelenting but DeLuca seems like a tough enough guy who could handle the blows. But clearly, Alex’s Hulk smashes were too much. An angry Meredith warns Alex and that he could face jail time if anyone figures out what he did (so he better hope Jo doesn’t tell anyone and DeLuca comes out of this with no memory, or is very, very forgiving). Karev also wonders if Grey will turn him in but let’s be serious. She would never.
But speaking of Jo, where the heck is she? And will this near-death experience for DeLuca have Maggie running back to her ex-boyfriend’s side or is she still all about Riggs?
But the most important question: Will DeLuca die? Please, Shonda, no. We need as many pretty things and dreamy dudes to ogle during TGITs and we don’t think we can handle a DeLuca-less Grey’s.
