Grey's Anatomy returns next week with "Going Going Gone," the season 9 premiere which will jump forward a few months after the plane crash. One of the big questions concerns Arizona and her fate. What's the latest clue?
Grey's Season 9 Spoilers About Arizona
According to TVGuide.com, Ellen Pompeo has said, "I'm not really around when they film those scenes, but what I can say is the scenes Jessica has are really intense and definitely challenging. But I think Jessica's going to knock it out of the park, and it's going to be great for the show!" Meredith and Arizona were both on the plane that crashed, but while Meredith, Cristina, and Derek were obviously hurt and hungry, Arizona and Mark were in much worse condition. Both were seriously injured and in desperate need of a hospital. They may be doctors, but there's only so much they could do out in the woods.
While Mark's fate seems like a foregone conclusion with Eric Dane only in a couple of episodes, Arizona's is still very much uncertain. Her leg was not looking good, and with this tease from Pompeo, it does sound like it's very possible that Grey's Anatomy season 9 could see Arizona dealing with a serious permanent injury as a result of what happened to her in the crash. Her recovery scenes could certainly be described as "really intense and definitely challenging" then. There has been speculation that she could lose a leg. If so, that would significantly change her life, both at home and at work. Fortunately, September 27 is almost here, and the premiere should provide some of those answers fans have wanted all summer.
