Grey's Anatomy's eighth season ended with a plane crash which left Lexie dead and Mark and Arizona seriously injured and, along with Meredith, Cristina, and Derek, stranded in the woods. Will someone else end up dead from the crash?
Grey's Season 9 Spoilers
Not much is being said about Arizona's storyline this season. She was badly injured in that crash, and she desperately needed a doctor like Callie to look at her leg. There have been some teases about what's coming up for Callie, who is going to be impacted as it is with Eric Dane's Mark's fate. It's already been said that there's going to be plenty to explore about Callie in Grey's Anatomy season 9, but will Arizona be by her side for it?
Shonda Rhimes told TVLine that Arizona will have a "really interesting journey," which she wants the viewers to see "with fresh eyes" instead of "already knowing what' going to happen." She praised the acting, calling it "incredible" and said "We just want to let it be what it is." All signs do seem to be pointing to Arizona being a very likely candidate to be another death from the plane crash, but could she survive with a permanent reminder from the crash, leaving Arizona with a strong storyline and a chance for Jessica Capshaw to show off her acting skills?
There is obviously something big coming up for her since they've been keeping it such a secret, but will Arizona be around for the aftermath? There was already Lexie's heartbreaking death and Mark's goodbye in the season 8 finale; could the second episode of season 9, which is going to flash back to the woods, show another heartbreaking goodbye scene, this time for Arizona? Fortunately, fans only have to wait until the end of the month to find out what happened to Arizona, as the season 9 premiere, "Going Going Gone," airs on September 27.
