The "Season of Romance": Shonda Rhimes told TV Guide that she's "dubbed this the season of romance," so expect to see a lot of shippy scenes.
Owen and Cristina, reconciling? Shonda also told TV Guide that she expects to see "Cristina Yang [Sandra Oh] and Owen Hunt [Kevin McKidd] finding their way back to each other," which fits with Kevin McKidd's belief that the couple will find a way to make it work. But don't expect a smooth ride: Shonda says reconciliation "is not going to be easy."
"Happiness" for Bailey and Ben: TV Guide reports that Bailey (Chanda Wilson) and Ben (Jason George) have "happiness" in their future. Shonda confirmed to TV Guide that Jason George will be able to continue his role on the show despite having a new part on ABC’s midseason show Mistresses. The couple is still engaged, and Shonda promises we'll "probably see [them get married] and really enjoy it."
Callie and Arizona: Shonda remains reluctant to talk about Arizona's (Jessica Capshaw) fate, but she did dish to The Hollywood Reporter that whatever goes down, "it's going to impact Callie [Sara Ramirez] hugely."
Will Alex find his "person"?: Shonda said that she thinks that, after years of romantic strife, Alex (Justin Chambers) may finally find his "person."
Jackson/April? Shonda also promises that the Jackson (Jesse Williams)/April (Sarah Drew) relationship will continue to be explored, saying "it’s going to be funny, sexy, and good."
Richard and Adele: Shonda told The Hollywood Reporter that the writers have a "beautiful and painful journey" planned for Richard (James Pickens Jr.) and Adele, as long as they can get Loretta Devine back. Given that Loretta keeps getting Emmy nods for playing Adele, we have a feeling she'll find time in her schedule for more Grey's.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 will premiere on Thursday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
