In what we’re starting to suspect is some sort of top-secret Disney strategy to promote the recent re-release of the Lion King on DVD, GREY’S ANATOMY will follow in CASTLE’s footsteps by being the second ABC series (Note: ABC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the house that Mickey Mouse built) to feature an angry lion this season. Appropriately titled “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” the April 5th episode of the hit medical series will see a couple’s lives and relationships at risk thanks to a lion on the loose in Seattle. Oh, and on the off chance that’s not reason enough to tune in, expect Lexie to overhear a conversation about Mark discussing moving in with Julia, Teddy to make a decision to move on with her life following Henry’s death, Callie and Arizona have an awkward conversation about Arizona’s ‘number,” while Alex attempts to make space between an himself and an increasingly dependant Morgan as Meredith tries to be supportive of Cristina as tensions between her and Owen hit a boiling point. More first look photos of which can be seen for yourself, after the jump.
GREY’S ANATOMY airs Thursdays at 9PM on ABC (CTV in Canada) and stars Patrick Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, Sara Ramirez, Eric Dane, Chyler Leigh, Kevin McKidd, Jessica Capshaw, Jesse Williams and Sarah Drew.
