Drama 9.30pm, Seven
The penultimate episode for season eight sets up a heck of a cliffhanger seasonender for next week.
The fifth-year resident doctors are making final decisions on where they’re headed when their residency ends. It’s called “the great migration” and in the case of these residents could mean couples and lives intertwined might be torn apart. The tension is palpable.
That’s all set aside when Meredith ( Ellen Pompeo), Derek ( Patrick Dempsey), Cristina ( Sandra Oh), Mark ( Eric Dane), Lexie ( Chyler Leigh) and Alex (Justin Chambers) are called to help in a surgery at a hospital out of town. The trip doesn’t go quite as expected.
