Oh, Grey's Anatomy, we wish we could quit you. Okay, not really, but you keep messing with our hearts, and now it looks like we’ll be suffering from abandonment issues.

The latest blow comes in the form of a tweet from Grey's creator Shonda Rhimes. In response to a fan asking when Season 8, Episode 10 will air, Shonda replied, "January. Don't yell at me. I know. I am sorry."

That means that Season 8, Episode 9, "Dark Was the Night" was be the last new Grey's of 2011. Grey's, if we hadn't promised to love you even when we hate you, we'd be breaking up right now.

UPDATE: Grey's Anatomy Season 8 will return on January 5, 2012.
