We knew Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) wasn’t done dealing with the whole Richard (James Pickens Jr.)-and-his-mom (Debbie Allen) thing on Grey's Anatomy, but how far will things go?

According to TV Guide, we can look forward to a Jackson-Richard standoff. Where it will happen or what exactly a standoff entails remain mysteries to us. Are we talking about an actual face-to-face showdown in the hospital? At Joe’s? We can’t imagine that it would escalate to a physical fight … at least not on Richard’s part.

Or does a standoff mean that they refuse to work together, talk to each other, etc.? Well, we’re betting they come face-to-face at some point (or the tension just gets really annoying), because TV Guide also reports that Bailey (Chandra Wilson) will have some “choice words about the matter.”

We love when men let testosterone get the best of them and Bailey is there to set them straight. She’s so good at that.

Do you think Jackson is justified in being upset with Richard? What do you hope will happen with the standoff?
