A couple of new characters would join Grey’s Anatomy season 13 after it returns on ABC. The arrival of two new characters is expected to be a game changer for the show, stirring it into unexpected directions. The mid-season premiere is titled “You Can Look (But You’d Better Not Touch)” and it will air on January 26, only on ABC.
Two New Characters And The Woman’s Prison
One of the characters who would be introduced in the show is Diane, Maggie’s adoptive mother, played by LaTanya Richardson Jackson. It is speculated by International Business Times that her entry might be related somehow to Maggie’s separation from her husband. Another parent who will debut on the show after the mid season break is Jackson’s father. However, as to what Jackson’s divorced father could trigger in the plot of the series is anyone’s guess.
The showrunners have been all hush-hush about the second half of Grey’s Anatomy season 13. However, there have been a couple of hints suggesting what awaits viewers of the show. The premiere of the midseason break will see Arizona and Bailey heading to the woman’s prison to treat a teenage inmate. Doctors will be tasked with assisting the girl to deliver her baby inside the prison.
Alex’s Lawsuit Hangs In Balance
“What’s really exciting about the episode is seeking those three characters react very differently actually to an environment that is very different also from the hospital. The episode has so many great moments in it — there are moments where we’re laughing, we’re crying. There’s scary moments in the episode,” quipped Camilla Luddington, who plays Jo on the show, reported Entertainment Weekly.
However, people who were wondering what would happen to Alex would have to wait a while longer, reported Hypable. The premiere will solely focus on the medical emergency inside the woman’s prison. While Alex’s lawsuit would be brought up in the end, no conclusion would be reached during the episode. However, viewers would be able to see Jo and Arizona’s reaction when Bailey reveals details about Alex’s lawsuit.
