Eric Dane (Mark Sloan) has been spotted all over SoCal in casual clothes and going on cute little lunch dates with his wife Rebecca Gayheart. On another chill day, the on-screen doc was spotted leaving Kings Road Cafe  in Hollywood with a friend yesterday (July 10). Life seems to be just lovely during the Grey's Anatomy hiatus.

Well, life isn’t so lovely for all of us! Though it's been months since the heart-shattering Season 8 finale, we're still ripping our hair out with burning questions. Will Mark get through the crash? Will Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) be able to practice with his injury? How will Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) cope with her sister's death?

We'll have to wait until Season 9 to know for sure, but at least we're getting some juicy spoilers along the way. If you have the itch like we do, click here for some spoilers about the premiere!

Miss Grey’s? Us too. Luckily the show will return to Thursdays at 9 p.m. with all-new episodes in the fall on ABC.
