If (or when) a doctor dies on the two-hour Season 10 premiere of Grey's Anatomy, Shane Ross (Gaius Charles) might be the one to blame.
A new clip shows the fledgling doctor thinking he's so clever in his ploy to delegate a menial task, not realizing that he's, in effect, issuing one of his fellow interns a death sentence.
In the scene, Bailey (Chandra Wilson) asks Shane to find Richard (James Pickens Jr.) — who, as we saw in the Season 9 finale, electrocuted himself while trying to get the hospital back online. Shane protests, saying that he has a message from Derek (Patrick Dempsey) to deliver to Heather. Bailey then demands that he find the former Chief.
Shane learns from Cristina (Sandra Oh) that Webber was going to check out the generator. Then he finds Heather, who is responding to a page from Derek. Shane tells her that Derek just wanted Heather to find Webber.
Heather leaves, looking a little disappointed, while Shane just smiles smugly. (Wasn't there a message that he was supposed to deliver?)
Heather discovers Richard facedown in the generator room but then — in a moment of panic and/or stupidity — steps in a puddle, zapping herself. Well, she's either zapping herself or passing a kidney stone. It's hard to tell from her facial expression.
The force of the shock sends her crashing headlong into a mechanical panel, and she slumps unconscious to the ground.
Yikes. This preview plus the fact that actress Tina Majorino is not a series regular in Season 10 has us thinking that this shock-and-blow will be fatal. Guess we'll find out when the season premiere on Sept. 26 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
Do you think Heather is dead? Or will she survive the accident? Sound off below!
