If Grey's Anatomy is known for one thing, well, it’s the “Mc” nicknames. But if it’s known for two things, it is the “Mc” nicknames and the relationships.

We’ve had Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey), Mark (Eric Dane) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) (R.I.P), Burke (Isaiah Washington) and Cristina (Sandra Oh), Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina, George (T.R. Knight) and Callie (Sara Ramirez), George and Izzie (Katherine Heigl), Callie and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), Izzie and Alex (Justin Chambers) … you get the point. Grey’s creates lovable and relatable dynamics like no other show.

But there’s one couple at the center of all the drama: Meredith and Cristina.

If you’re a lover of the (formerly) dark-and-twisty sisters, we’ve got good news for you. For one hour of Season 9, you will get nothing but Meredith and her “person.”

According to TVLine, showrunner Shonda Rhimes has confirmed that there will be a stand-alone Meredith and Cristina episode. “It’s just the story of Meredith and Cristina. It’s really going to be original. I don’t think we’ve ever told a story the way we’re telling a story in this episode.”

Hmmm.

Let’s see: They’ve told a story musically, through the eyes of the men, from beyond the grave, as a documentary … what haven’t they done already? Well, that is Shonda’s secret for the time being.

“It’s not a regular episode. I won’t be able to explain what the gimmick is until I’ve seen it shot and we’ve decided on the visual style of it. But it is going to be fairly different,” Rhimes said.

What do you think the gimmick could be? Will Meredith and Cristina go on a trip, or will it be some cool visual twist on life from their perspectives? Will we learn more about Cristina’s childhood?

We’re not sure what the episode is going to hold for us, but if we know our favorite duo, we’re willing to bet there will be tequila and dancing involved. Or are they too adult for that now?

Let us know your theories on the episode in the comments!

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