GREY’S ANATOMY Recap: “I Must Have Lost It on the Wind”

grey's anatomy meredith

There is one way I know fall is here. It’s not the leaves changing or the air getting colder, it’s hearing Dr. Meredith Grey’s (Ellen Pompeo) voice talking while we pan over a Seattle skyline. For more than a decade that’s the voice we’ve waited for to let us know it’s time. Time to get on the roller coaster that is Shondaland and strap in for the bumpy ride that this GREY’S ANATOMY season will be.

The eleventh season kicked off with Meredith narrating a flashback featuring her mother and a much younger toddler Meredith, anatomy Jane doll in hand. Cut to present day and Meredith is in bed with Alex (Justin Chambers). Looks like he’s the new Cristina.

Miles Heizer drew parenthood

With its final season premiering tonight, it’s safe to say NBC’s family drama PARENTHOOD will be missed. I spoke with Miles Heizer who plays Drew Holt on the fan favorite show. Drew has grown immensely since the first season and a lot is in store for him in the final episodes.
