Think the drama around the Grey Sloan operating tables is intense? You’re forgetting about the drama around the docs’ dining tables.

We see some of the surgeons sitting down for dinner in Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 promotional photos from the March 30 episode, which is always a recipe for disaster.

In a press release, ABC teases the drama to come in that episode, titled “Be Still, My Soul” — and directed by Ellen Pompeo!

“When Maggie’s mom’s health deteriorates, the doctors are at odds over how to treat her,” the synopsis reads. “Meanwhile, Richard comes to grips with Bailey’s betrayal over the Residency Program.”

And the promo photos show a dinner party at Chez Grey, with Mama Pierce joining daughter Maggie and some of her colleagues: Meredith, Richard, Arizona, Amelia, and Jackson.

What could go wrong, right?

A whole lot, as it turns out.

Remember when Mer’s Season 12 dinner party was sidelined by the unexpected arrival of Penny — a doc who had failed to save Derek’s life and who hadn’t realized her new girlfriend Callie was coworkers with his widow?

Mer tried to be a gracious host, but finally the truth came out. “Perfect Penny killed my husband,” she said.

Then there was Meredith’s Christmas dinner in Season 6 — during which Papa Bailey took the opportunity to throw shade on Miranda’s life choices, like her leaving her unhappy marriage to Tucker.

And don’t forget about the surgical interns’ Thanksgiving dinner in Season 2, when everyone made awkward excuses in an effort not to sit down for the feast Izzie had labored over.

 

So Mer, Maggie, et al. may be smiling in these promo pics, but don’t be deceived! We’re sure one of those dinner guests will step on a conversational landmine!
