On Grey’s Anatomy, drama and thrills are aplenty, so when the cast all reacts strongly to a table read, we know we’re in for a bigger treat than usual. On October 30, a handful of cast members shared their excitement about an upcoming episode on Twitter, which could mean one of two things: deaths galore or happiness for the docs.

“Now THAT was a #TableRead. Whole package from the @GreysABC writers,” Jesse Williams (Jackson Avery) tweeted. His co-star Jessica Capshaw (Arizona Robbins) immediately responded, re-tweeting his message and adding, “For reals…”

But wait, there’s more!

Show boss Shonda Rhimes posted a photo from the table read, in which Sandra Oh (Cristina Yang) can hardly contain herself, flashing two thumbs ups and making an excited face for the camera. Co-star Justin Chambers (Alex Karev) looks less enthused, almost confused next to her as he eats, and Tessa Ferrer (Leah Murphy) is just staring at Sandra in awe.

“Table read joy!” Shonda captioned the pic, so we’re hoping that hints at greener pastures for the Grey Sloan Memorial crew, but with Grey’s, you never know what to expect.

Do you think the table read was full of happy moments, or should we prepare for a big disaster? Sound off below!

Grey’s Anatomy airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
