In what was most likely a necessary episode for anyone who didn’t watch “Private Practice,” we got a deeper look into Derek and Amelia’s backstory, particularly Amelia’s drug-riddled past as news spread through the hospital like a dangerous virus (which has totally happened on this show before). Get your scrub caps on:
Anyone else miss “Grey’s” last week? I certainly did. What started out as a disappointing filler episode became more and more telling for our favorite characters, ending with one huge bombshell that has the potential of major aftershocks for many across Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Scalpel, please:

OK, let me preface this by saying I’ve been a fan of “Grey’s Anatomy” since I started watching at the start of season three (don’t worry, I binged my way through DVDs as I quickly discovered my obsession). It’s the first prime-time show I really got into. I know it’s arguably fallen by the wayside over the years, but this premiere proved to me how much life this show still has in it, despite the tremendous void filled by Cristina’s departure.
Case and point: a season premiere instantly referencing back to the show’s oft-forgotten lore. Scrub in, because this episode was a doozy.
