As we previously spoiled, this season on Grey's Anatomy we'll get to meet Jackson's (Jesse Williams) mom, played by the incomparable Debbie Allen (Fame!). But it's not all cheese and daisies for the mother-son duo when they reunite in the halls of Seattle Grace Mercy West. Really, is it ever a good sign when the parents come to town? No. No, it isn't.

"That all plays out on camera. That plays out in the first 15 minutes. It goes through all waves of good to strained relationship in a matter of 15 minutes," Jesse told E! Online of Jackson's tumultuous interaction with his maternal unit.

But, uh, is anyone else wondering if Lexie's (Chyler Leigh) going to meet the parents? Are they there yet as a couple? Slexie fans, worry not about this impending big relationship step. Jesse also offered a ray of hope for those of us still wondering if something lingers between Sloan (Eric Dane) and Lexie: "You're working with your ex and you're walking the same hallways — feelings are going to get stirred up."

Vague, but we'll take it. We'll cling to anything at this point, really.

Okay, now more steamy Lexie/Jackson laundry room scenes, please.
