Grey’s Anatomy may take place in a hospital, but sometimes it may feel more like a family drama than a medical show. After all, the whole series started with Meredith Gray (Ellen Pompeo) beginning her internship at the same hospital where her legendary surgeon mother Ellis Gray entered the story. And with the addition of another of Ellis’ daughters, Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) in Season 11, all the family drama escalated. Now in the promo for Grey’s Anatomy Season 18, episode 12, it looks like Maggie is about to uncover another family secret.
After getting married to Winston Ndugu (Anthony Hill) last season, Maggie hasn’t had a lot of major storylines so far in Season 18. Well, that all changes when she discovers a long-lost letter from his mother. Meredith’s daughter Zola has been on a real kick from Ellis Gray lately. In Season 18 Episode 11, she was watching a video of one of Ellis’ surgeries as Mer leaves for work, and the promo for next week’s episode shows Zola going through a box of things from Ellis. ‘Ellis. Time will tell if any of this foreshadows Zola’s budding career in medicine (hey, like mother, like daughter, right?) But in the meantime, Zola’s research leads to the discovery of a letter addressed to Maggie. Maggie never got to meet or talk to her birth mother, so a letter from her could reveal something big. You can discover the full promo below:
Meanwhile, love is in the air for Meredith and Amelia (Caterina Scorsone). In the promo for episode 12, Meredith’s doctor boyfriend, Nick Marsh (Scott Speedman), says the big L-word, marking a big step forward in Meredith’s first major post-Derek relationship. As Mer and Nick make big proclamations, thibgs heat up between Amelia and Kai (ER Fightmaster). Amelia becomes totally a fangirl of Kai, who shows her rockstar side during a performance for Amelia. Fans will have to wait and see how these romances pan out in next week’s episode.
Season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy continues Thursday, March 17 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
