Just in time for the docs of Grey's Anatomy to settle down after the plane crash and start getting back to saving lives and enjoying the holidays, their world is going to be rocked yet again. Their world … and ours.

TVLine reports that another longtime beloved character is going to join Mark (Eric Dane) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) in the (very attractive) afterlife in early 2013. What a way to start off the new year, right? We don’t mean to ruin your Thanksgiving, but we can’t let this go. It’s safe to say that this is not what we expected from the season of romance.

Most importantly, which character do you think will be the next to die? Here’s our guess: It’s not going to be Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Cristina (Sandra Oh), Derek (Patrick Dempsey), Alex (Justin Chambers), Callie (Sara Ramirez), Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) or Bailey (Chandra Wilson). Hopefully it won’t be Owen (Kevin McKidd), Jackson (Jesse Williams), April (Sarah Drew) or Richard (James Pickens Jr.). Our money is on the beloved Adele (Loretta Devine).

Then again, we never thought George (T.R. Knight) would leave us so suddenly.

Do you guys think the show can handle another loss? Which character do you think we’ll be saying goodbye to in a few months?

Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, November 29 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
