Grey’s Anatomy is getting ready for its mid-season return, and season 12 of the series will return with a huge bang. ABC has now revealed what will happen on the big episode set for February 11.
Meredith will face a new challenge. She will be attacked during the mid-season premiere, and a preview released by ABC reveals that it will be a patient that attacks her.
There is someone big behind the camera for the mid-season return titled “The Sound of Silence.” Denzel Washington directed the episode. Filming of the episode took place back in November, and Ellen Pompeo teased a bit about the episode in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. She said:
“I’m super excited for the fans to see [episode 1209, directed by Denzel Washington]. It’s for sure the [best] thing I’ve ever done on the show.
