New Grey’s Anatomy Season 14’s Episode 9 Is Getting Delayed For Quite A While
Hey,”Grey’s Anatomy” fans. Unfortunately, we have to tell you that the previous episode 8 that aired this past Thursday night, November 16,2017 was the mid season finale episode. What this means is that it’s going to be quite a while before the upcoming episode 9 airs.
Thanks to the people over at Entertainment Weekly we can confirm how long this delay will be. The delay is going to officially last until January 18,2018. So, be sure to mark that important date down on your TV calendars.
This delay is also in effect for that whole trio of Shonda Rhimes produced shows that air on Thursday nights. So, that includes “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder.” They all aired their midseason finale episodes this past Thursday night, November 16,2017. They’re all due to return on the January 18,2018 date. They will all return in their same time slots, So, you Grey’s Anatomy fans just tune in at 7 pm central standard time like you’ve been doing.
With all that being said, the delay appears to be for roughly two months. That’s not too bad when you consider it could’ve been much longer. Since Grey’s Anatomy is scheduled to air 24 episodes this season, we don’t foresee it encountering too many more breaks after this midseason break ends. When it returns, it’ll only be into episode 9. That leaves another 14 episodes they’ll need to air by mid-May 2018. There’s a little time in there for a break or two but not much.
So, what will be filling the empty Grey’s Anatomy time slot for this midseason break? Well, we were able to take a look at the TV Guide listings for next week. We couldn’t view further than 12 days out. So, we can just tell you what to expect in next week’s line up. On Thursday night, November 23,2017, you guys might want to still tune into ABC to see the pilot premiere of a new show called, “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World.” It’s taking over the Grey’s Anatomy 7 pm central time slot during the midseason break.
The preface for the show reads like this, “A man who is down on his luck struggles to get back to the road of righteousness after meeting a warrior for God whose job is to help this rather clueless jerk understand that his mission in life is to save the world.”
An additional description from TV Guide for the premiere says, “Kevin will return home to Texas to crash with his sister and niece and will have a strained homecoming. Soon after, he meets a celestial guide who informs him he is a righteous soul meant to protect the world in the series premiere.”
So, that certainly sounds like it could be a pretty interesting new series that could temporarily fill in for your missing Grey’s Anatomy show. If it doesn’t sound like a show you’d be interesting in watching, you’ll definitely want to make other plans.
For any of you who watch “Scandal” and “How To Get Away With Murder,” those time slots will be filled in with two reruns of the show titled, “The Good Doctor.” The first rerun they’ll be airing is called, “Pipes.” It’s set to air in the 8 pm central time slot.
The official description for it reads like this, “Dr. Neil Melendez and the team will have to wade through legal waters when a husband and wife have to make a life-changing decision about their unborn child. Meanwhile, Dr. Shaun Murphy struggles to adjust to his new environment at home and makes a huge step forward with his colleagues.”
The second rerun is titled, “Point Three Percent.” The official description for it reads like this, “While in the exam area of St. Bonaventure Hospital, Dr. Shaun Murphy encounters a young patient who looks eerily similar to his deceased brother, Steve. After discovering his parents have hidden his diagnosis from him, Shaun struggles to understand why he doesn’t deserve to hear the truth about his own health. Meanwhile, the team can’t figure out what keeps triggering their patients’ increasingly severe allergic reactions and races to find the cause before the next one kills another patient.”
The whole preface for “Point Three Percent” reads like this: “A talented young surgeon with savant syndrome ruffles feathers while saving lives at a prestigious hospital’s pediatric surgical unit.” If any of those shows sound good to you guys, you’ll definitely want to still tune into ABC during Grey’s Anatomy’s midseason break.
We were able to find some information for the upcoming Grey’s Anatomy episode 9 from the show’s Wikia page. It turns out that it is entitled, “Four Seasons in One Day.” It was written by Andy Reaser, and Bill D’Elia directed it.
Episode 9 is also going to feature guest stars: Matthew Morrison as character Dr. Paul Stadler, Jeanine Mason as character Dr. Sam Bello and Bethany Joy Lenz as character Jenny. We’ve been reporting on the arrival of Matthew Morrison’s Paul Stadler and Bethany Joy Lenz’s Jenny characters for quite some time now. We just didn’t know when they would be making their first debut. Now we do. It turns out that the new episode 9 will be introducing us to some interesting stuff.
As we previously reported, Matthew Morrison told the press that his Dr. Paul Stadler character is supposed to have some pretty huge scenes this season. So, it’s definitely going to be interesting to see what they’ll have him doing. Whatever it is, it certainly doesn’t seem like it’ll be good for Camilla Luddington’s Dr. Jo Wilson character.
As for Bethany Joy Lenz’ Jenny character, we previously reported a few weeks back that she would be arriving at some point. At the time, we could only tell you guys that the character would be named Jenny. We didn’t have the debut date or any details on her.
Unfortunately, we still don’t know what Jenny will be doing, but at least we do know when she’s set to make her first appearance. We do know Jenny is a guest role. So, it sounds like she’ll show up to do an arc and then be on her way. But who knows? Sometimes, these guest roles can turn into something more. Plus, Bethany Joy Lenz is a great actress. She’s best known for playing character Haley James Scott on the former CW hit drama series “One Tree Hill.” It ran for nine long seasons. We still think it should be on the air.
As for Jeanine Mason’s Sam Bello character, she’s a new intern that was introduced earlier this season in episode 4 entitled, “Ain’t That A Kick In The Head.” Her first scene featured her coming in for an interview at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to be considered for an internship. During her interview, she said she’d read all about the fire and revealed that Stephanie Edwards was her hero. She didn’t realize they’d already done the remodel of the hospital.
Sam also appeared in the 6th episode which is entitled, “Come on Down to My Boat, Baby.” During that episode, Sam showed up at the new intern mixer at the hospital. Richard gave a speech about them starting their work as doctors. Meredith Grey was celebrated as she learned she had been nominated for a Harper Avery Award.
The new interns then walked around the hospital in awe that they worked there and so did Meredith Grey. In the hallway, Sam was shocked to see Andrew and learn that he worked there. Sam also has a romantic relationship with season regular character Dr.Andrew Deluca played by actor Giacomo Gianniotti.
So, it’ll be semi- interesting to see what they’ll have Sam do in her upcoming third appearance in episode 9. The new episode 9 will also feature co-stars Alex Blue Davis as character Dr. Casey Parker and Jaicy Elliot as character Dr. Taryn Helm.
Dr. Casey Parker was first introduced in this current season 14, episode 4 “Ain’t That A Kick in The Head.” During Casey’s first scene, he came in to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to get interviewed for an internship. During his interview, he said he served two tours of duty in cybersecurity the Air Force and after seeing the surgeons work while he was injured, he decided to quit the military to study medicine.
Casey also showed up in the 6th episode labeled, “Come on Down to My Boat, Baby.” During that episode, Casey attended the new intern mixer at the hospital where Richard gave a speech about them starting their work as doctors.
Dr. Taryn Helm also made her first appearance in the 4th episode labeled, “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head.” She like the other interns showed up at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to be interviewed for an internship. During her interview, she was asked about her faults. She said that she hates all of her peers.
Taryn also appeared in the 6th episode titled, “Come on Down to My Boat, Baby” at that same intern mixer as the other interns.
So, look for those two to make their third appearance this season when the show finally returns in late January 2018. Stay tuned. Also, be sure to follow us on our Grey’s Anatomy Facebook page for more Grey’s Anatomy news by Clicking Here.
