Grey's Anatomy has been on for nine years, and we can count the number of times we’ve seen the inside of a conference room on two hands(ish). No, we didn’t actually count. But we know enough to know that a conference room usually means drama. From people getting fired to lawsuits, we never like to see the doctors taking time out of their busy schedules to sit around and “discuss.”
But we don’t always get what we want …

Sarah Drew (April Kepner) took to Twitter today to say, “Conference room scene with the whole gang today!! Fun fun fun!!” She was quickly followed by Jesse Williams (Jackson Avery), who tweeted a picture of the gang saying, “Morning attendings meeting.” In the photo, we can clearly see Derek (Patrick Dempsey), Alex (Justin Chambers) and April sitting around a table.
April is the only one in her scrubs. Could this just have been a rehearsal, or is there a reason that Derek and Alex aren’t dressed? However, Derek is often in a button-down shirt at the hospital, so perhaps it’s just Alex who’s not dressed for work?
More importantly, whether it’s rehearsal or not, why are all the attending (AKA the bigwigs) gathering in the Seattle Grace-Mercy West conference room? Could Owen (Kevin McKidd) have an announcement to make? Or maybe there’s a big, controversial patient case in our future? We always love those.
All we know is that the conference room scares us. But we do love when all the attendings get to interact.
What do you think will pull the doctors away from the operating room?
Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, October 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
