Grey’s Anatomy

Sea­son 12 Mon­days (from 28 Septem­ber) M-Net 19:30

Pa­tient’s name: Grey’s Anatomy Date of birth: 2005- cur­rent Di­ag­no­sis: the med­i­cal drama has chronic fa­tigue, anx­i­ety and de­pres­sion due to los­ing main char­ac­ters like Dr Cristina Yang (San­dra Oh) in sea­son 10 and Dr Derek Shep­herd (Pa­trick Dempsey) in sea­son 11. Pre­scrip­tion: Dr tv­plus has a list of med­i­ca­tion for Grey’s Anatomy to sur­vive sea­son 12 and re­gain its well-be­ing in time for the new sea­son.

Name of med­i­ca­tion: Ad­vair Diskus (an asthma in­haler) Take this be­cause… breathe! Af­ter the time leap in sea­son 11 with Mered­ith (Ellen Pom­peo) and her new­born, fans need space to di­gest her new role as a widow mom. We’d pre­fer her to not date another McDreamy, in­stead to give re­la­tion­ship ad­vice to friends and new in­terns – af­ter all, she is the heart of the show. Also, it wouldn’t hurt if Dr Yang popped in to com­fort her bestie. Name of med­i­ca­tion: Be­rocca (energy booster) Take this be­cause… af­ter the dis­heart­en­ing break-up be­tween Cal­lie and Ari­zona (Sara Ramirez and Jes­sica Cap­shaw) last sea­son, we want to see them move for­ward in their dat­ing lives and stop mop­ing and pin­ing for each other. Their char­ac­ters need a dose of vigour (online dat­ing site Tin­der per­haps, ladies?). Sea­son 12 could use an in­jec­tion of new blood and fresh faces.

Name of med­i­ca­tion: coun­selling (cou­ple’s ther­apy) Take this be­cause… while we like Jo and Alex (Camilla Luddington and Justin Cham­bers), we don’t like their ap­a­thetic re­la­tion­ship. Jeal­ous Jo wasn’t too thrilled about Alex’s open- door pol­icy with Mered­ith and Ari­zona when they needed a shoul­der to cry on, plus they live in a ren­o­va­tor’s dream house and haven’t yet made it a home. If only Izzie (Kather­ine Heigl) could re­turn but due to ten­sion be­tween the ac­tress and se­ries cre­ator Shonda Rhimes, we can cross that off our list of reme­dies.

Name of med­i­ca­tion: Prozac (anti-de­pres­sant)

Take this be­cause… Jack­son (Jesse Wil­liams) lost his baby and mar­riage to April (Sarah Drew) in sea­son 11. But we can’t bear to let the hunky doc dwell on the past and we’d love to see his smile again. Ei­ther things get back to nor­mal for this fan-favourite cou­ple, or April’s move to Jor­dan is made per­ma­nent and Jack­son gears up for new ro­mance.

Name of med­i­ca­tion: cal­cium sup­ple­ment (bone builder) Take this be­cause… if it’s the Chief Of Surgery job that Mi­randa (Chan­dra Wil­son) is af­ter, she’s go­ing to need mus­cle to beat out the com­pe­ti­tion. No­body de­serves it more than Mi­randa but some in­tense ri­valry from April and Alex would add to the drama…

Name of med­i­ca­tion: vi­ta­min D (the “sun­shine” vi­ta­min) Take this be­cause… we’d love Cather­ine and Richard’s (Deb­bie Allen and James Pick­ens) happy love bub­ble to re­main in­tact af­ter their sea­son 11 “I do’s”. How­ever, we’ve heard that Deb­bie will be more be­hind-thescenes this sea­son as a di­rec­tor and ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer. Pity, as we’d love more of Cather­ine’s “sun­shine” per­son­al­ity – it’s in­fec­tious.

Per­ti­nent out­comes: Shonda re­veals that sea­son 12 is lighter and hap­pier, plus a lot more fo­cus will be on the newer char­ac­ters and less fo­cus on Mered­ith. “We’re go­ing to tell all these Alex and Jo sto­ries,” Shonda re­veals. “Mered­ith is sin­gle, liv­ing a life that she never thought she’d be liv­ing again. She’s liv­ing in a house with her sis­ters. She’s sur­rounded by women who are dat­ing and hav­ing a whole life and she’s not in­ter­ested in all that.” There’s also new ro­mances lined up for Cal­lie and Ari­zona, and adding to the McYummy fac­tor is Martin Hen­der­son, who’s con­firmed as a cast ad­di­tion. Sea­son 12’s look­ing health­ier al­ready!
