With the news of a lawyer coming to Grey's Anatomy, we’ve been wondering how long the plane crash lawsuit could play a pivotal role in the lives of our favorite docs. Well, according to ABC, the lawsuit isn’t going away any time in the immediate future.

And by not going away any time in the immediate future, we mean that the lawsuit will be prevalent at least through Season 9, Episode 6 (airing November 15), according to the episode’s synopsis from ABC:
As the doctors continue with their lawsuit, they’re forced to confront the realities of their injuries. Meanwhile, Bailey tricks Arizona into helping her with a pediatric case, and Cristina tries to find normalcy in her new environment.
Our first question: Haven’t the doctors already been forced to confront the realities of their injuries? We suppose it’s a long process, but what more could happen to make things seem any more real?
Based on the title, “Second Opinion,” we’re guessing that either Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) or Derek (Patrick Dempsey) (or both) looks to someone new for help with their injuries only to hear more of the same. Second opinions never turn out well in Seattle.
And based on the synopsis, we assume that Cristina (Sandra Oh) is still in Minnesota? Is it still considered new at that point? Or could her new environment be back home? How long until you’re sick of Cristina being away?
Final note: Yay for Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and Arizona interacting! Even if we’re sure it will be heartbreaking at some point, there’s nothing quite like a Bailey pep talk (or talking to) to get someone going.
What are you most looking forward to in Episode 6?
Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, October 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
