They’ve done it before, but Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt) and Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey) may have more pressure on them this time around. Kevin will reportedly direct Season 8, Episode 21, which will most likely air in April, and Chandra will direct Season 8, Episode 22.
This will be Kevin’s third time directing an episode of Grey’s, and Chandra’s sixth. But these episodes are not only two of the final episodes of Season 8, but they may be some of the last episodes to even feature six of the original cast members — including Chandra!
Chandra and Kevin have both done well as directors in the past, so we think this news bodes well for the kind of emotional power we expect from the best episodes of Grey’s. Stocking up on Kleenex as we speak.
