Grey’s Anatomy: Hoping Arizona comes back soon

November 9, 2010 - Pam Rodgers
I like the direction that Grey’s Anatomy is going this year. We are back on track with the Grey's of old. This season is already 100 times more interesting than last season, and we aren’t even at the half-way point. I loved the documentary episode where it took a “Boston Medical” approach and filmed an in-depth look at the medicine in the show and cut out a little of the drama heavy scenes. It made you believe that these characters are actually doctors again.

* Spoiler Alert *

The thing I want to focus on is the most current episode, “That’s me Trying” (7:07). It had a lot of stuff going on in it. Owen had the residents working on skills lab for the emergency medical training (April was amazingly funny in that plot line!), Bailey assisting with Mary’s autopsy (the women played by Mandy Moore who died after a routine surgery in the previous episode), Christina finally has a complete meltdown, blames Meredith for what’s wrong with her and ultimately quits at the end.

The plot line that has me puzzled was Arizona and Callie’s impending trip to Africa. I figured throughout the whole episode that Callie was not going to go on the trip. But now that it’s just Arizona leaving, I am hoping that it is not for good. While my personal views don’t really match the whole Callie and Arizona relationship, I love Arizona as the PEDs surgeon. She has added so much to the show since she started two years ago.

I did a little digging after the show and found out that the actress who plays Arizona, Jessica Capshaw just had a daughter. So she is on maternity leave, but even the article put some doubt in my mind about the character, putting the word “if” in the sentence about her return.

Last year when Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) was pregnant, they just had her recovering from surgery so they still had her on the show just on limited time. But sending Arizona to Africa is a little big bigger of a break and seems to me, not as easy to fix. I hope that means that Arizona isn’t going the way of Izzy or Burke. She’s great and I want her on the show!!

P.S. Congrats to Jessica Capshaw on her new baby girl!
