There are so many loose ends from the Season 8 finale (Episode 24, "Flight") to wrap up when Grey's Anatomy returns in the fall with Season 9 that it’s almost refreshing to read a spoiler about a new patient at Seattle Grace. Even if some of our favorite doctors’ lives and careers are in danger, at least it will still be business as usual somewhere in the Season 9 premiere!

E! reports that “viewers will meet a patient [in the premiere] who will have a major presence throughout the season.”

Too “mysterious” for you? Well luckily, there’s a bit more info about this new Season 9 player.

“She’s funny,” E! continues, “smart, and girl-next-door pretty.”

Sounds like a lot of female Grey’s characters! What we’d like to know is if this new pretty patient will be a love interest for any of the docs. Could Mark (Eric Dane) have a quickie rebound to numb his pain after Lexie’s (Chyler Leigh) death? Or will Alex (Justin Chambers) finally find love?

We’ll have to wait until the fall to find out!

Miss Grey’s? Us too. Luckily the show will return to Thursdays at 9 p.m. with all-new episodes in the fall on ABC.
