As always, E! goes first and give us spoilers about the next episodes from Greys. TIP: We might get some emotional scenes coming around

Leah: I can’t wait until January for more Grey’s Anatomy! Got scoop to time me over until then?
You’re not the only one who thinks the winter hiatus is too long. “I’m a fan of the show too so I’m just so excited to see it return!” Caterina Scorsone, who plays our new favorite neurosurgeon Amelia Shepherd, told us. “I can’t wait to see how all the particular stories unfold. But I am—well, I don’t want to say excited, because that’s not the right word—I’m drawn into Kepner and Avery’s baby story in part because it resonates so deeply in Amelia’s backstory. She had a really difficult journey with her baby. It will be incredibly interesting to see how their story plays out.”




Can Amelia save Dr Herman’s life?

New Caterina’s interview, and this time, its about the whole new case our little dreamy is facing at Greys.
She talks about the Dr Herman’s life and how are Amelia odds to actually save her. Caterina also talks about Amelia/Owen friendship. I say shipping?

Dr. Nicole Herman (Geena Davis) may think her clock’s almost run out, but Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) has one last miraculous card hidden up her sleeve on Grey’s Anatomy.
By the end of the Grey’s Anatomy winter finale, Amelia had taken a long look at all of Nicole’s scans—unbeknownst to Nicole, as Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) stole them from another hospital without Nicole’s consent—and excitedly claimed to Arizona that she thinks she can operate on the previously-inoperable brain tumor.
Talk about a winter finale twist! Everyone, including all the Grey’s Anatomy cast members, thought that Nicole was done for.
“Yes, we all thought that was it!” Scorsone told E! News. “But Amelia is a pretty innovative doctor lady.”
So how confident is Amelia that she can save Nicole’s life?
“Amelia is so interesting because she’s such a combination of extreme confidence and then self-doubt at times,” Scorsone said. “At this point, I think she’s cautiously confident. She sees brains in a way that most people don’t. Her own mind is very fast-moving and complicated. She is approaching this tumor and this problem in a way that’s really creative and outside the box, a way that most other doctors wouldn’t. That’s indicative of her personality, because she’s not your typical neurosurgeon. She’s got all sorts of dark corners and flashes of brilliance. That is how she is approaching this previously-unsolvable problem.”
Expect to see Amelia hard at work on Nicole’s tumor when Grey’s Anatomy returns in January.
“She’s definitely taking on the case,” Scorsone said. “She is hammering away at it and drawing on all of her creativity and resources and all of the technological resources available nowadays to attack this tumor.”
But how is Nicole going to react to this news that her life may not be over, especially considering the fact that she forbade Arizona from even digging into her case, let alone telling someone else about it? Not well, as you’d expect!
“We have already seen that Dr. Herman is a very, very private person,” Scorsone said. “She doesn’t even want to disclose information about her tumor to Arizona, who she’s working so closely with. I think you can imagine that she’s not going to be totally thrilled that Arizona knows or that she has shared this information with anyone else. That’s going to be a pretty explosive situation.”
And don’t expect Nicole to celebrate Amelia’s claims that she can save her…at least, not right away.
“Dr. Herman is a complicated woman,” Scorsone said. “She has been facing her diagnosis in a very particular and personal way. When she hears that there is a possibility that Amelia can do something with this kind of tumor, her reaction is also very complicated. That will be an interesting thing to watch unfold.”
As for Amelia’s personal life, fans have been waiting months to see her share scenes with Owen (Kevin McKidd), and after last week’s intense and complicated misunderstanding, these two damaged docs finally started to bond in a deep way.
“Kevin McKidd is a great actor and it’s wonderful having him as a scene partner,” Scorsone said. “In terms of Owen and Amelia, seeing their bond grow is so interesting. They have so much scar tissue and baggage and pain that they’ve dealt with individually, so knowing that there is someone at the hospital who can relate on a personal level is going to be really healing for them both. Whether that is a friendship or a romantic situation, I don’t know, we haven’t gotten that far yet. They definitely understand and support each other in a way that no one else would be able to.”
Grey’s Anatomy returns Thursday, Jan. 29 at 8 pm on ABC.


Fall Finale’s Spoilers

Tv Line give us some things about our little dreamy on this Fall Finale, check it out:

Amelia doesn’t exactly follow through on her threat to move out of Casa de Mer/Der in the wake of her brother’s near-betrayal. As Caterina Scorsone teased to Michael Ausiello, “She’s still lingering in the house a little bit” in this Thursday’s episode. “She knows he’s sorry, and she knows that he’s really struggling. One of the things Amelia’s demons have given her is a deep well of compassion.” Having said that, the fact that Derek waffled on whether to go to bat for his kid sis “fundamentally changes the way Amelia sees him, and the way she sees the dynamic of their relationship. She can forgive but she won’t forget.”


New (BIG) Caterina interview

Ok, so we have ANOTHER great interview with Caterina, and this one is kinda fun. She talks a little about upcoming projects, check it out:

Q) What are the recent projects that you are working on?

A) I did shoot a pilot for a webseries with some friends of mine named Roja Gashtili and Julia Lerman. They are some really interesting filmmakers who have been studying at AFI and have done some stuff at Tribeca. We did a little thing together that is not ready yet, but in the future it will be. Mostly, it’s been “Grey’s Anatomy” and mommy time.

Q) What can you tease is in store this season for Amelia?

A) In episode 11-07, the “Grey’s Anatomy” audience who wasn’t familiar with Amelia from “Private Practice” will get her backstory of what was going on concerning her relapse into drug abuse. They wrote kind of a big reveal about that at the hospital.

Q) Now that Meredith is without her best friend, will we see her and Meredith grow closer at all?

A) I think so! I know in 11-07 Amelia actually turns to Meredith for support, which is nice because Amelia originally moved to Seattle to help when Derek was going off to Washington. Here Amelia is in need of support so she actually goes to Meredith. There is some mutual support happening amongst the sisters-in-law.

Q) What is in store for Amelia and Derek’s relationship? Since he never went to Washington they’ve been butting heads at the hospital.

A) Well, we will see what happens. I think when she originally came to Seattle that was the hope that she would get to have a closer relationship with his kids and Meredith. Since he decided not to go to Washington, they have been battling for control of the department. Then, in 11-07 some big stuff between them comes to a head. That episode is a big exploration of their relationship now as compared to where it has always been with the big brother-little sister dynamic.

Q) What have been some of your favorite scenes to shoot this season?

A) It’s all been really fun! I think one of the great things about the character that they write in Amelia is that she slides pretty easily between humor and drama. So, there is always some great jokes for her even in the darkest circumstances. There have just been some funny stuff to shoot. Then, coming up with this relapse storyline there is some heavy stuff. I think some of my favorite scenes are coming up with Patrick [Dempsey] in this episode. It’s really, really fun to act with him. He’s really a force to be reckoned with. To be able to play with him was really fun. I also love shooting some of the funny stuff with Kelly McCreary. We’re really having a good time together.

Q) Amelia did break off her relationship to be in Seattle for Meredith and Derek. Is there new romance on the horizon for her at all?

A) Well, we will find out. She left the relationship and I think she had been through so much on “Private Practice,” which some of the “Grey’s” audience don’t know about. Her boyfriend died of an overdose in her bed. Then, she had a baby and lost the baby. She has been through so much when her relationship with James happened that it served a very important purpose in her life, in terms of the healing process. I think that, ultimately, he was not her person or her guy. I suppose she is available for romance, but she still has a lot of healing to do. She’s been through so much that I think right now she is focusing on medicine and saving lives. She has seen so much death in her life recently that I think focusing on saving lives is her main thing. But who knows! There have been some rumors coming up. I don’t know. Shonda [Rhimes] is very good at figuring out when the time is right. But I think, eventually, when the time is right something will pop up for Amelia.

Q) Who are some of the upcoming guest stars we will see this season?

A) We have Geena Davis and that’s huge! She’s an icon. She is kind of one of the most exciting guest stars we have had this year. The season premiere had Christopher Redman in it, who is a fantastic actor and a fellow Canadian. We’ve known each other since we were kids. He played the John Doe guy who had been wandering in the dessert and his family was lost. He is such a talented guy and such a good person. It was great fun having him on set. One of the great things about being on “Grey’s” is that we have so many talented actors in Los Angeles. One by one you get to experience their craft as they come and blow the doors off their guest spot.

Q) Is there someone from “Private Practice you would like to see make an appearance?

A) Everybody! I would love to have the whole cast come up to Seattle for like a medical conference or something! I know that KaDee [Strickland] is on a show that shoots in the Carolinas. Paul [Adelstein] is in town and he is kind of in the “Scandal” Shondaland world. So, it would be easy and a nice one for him to pop over. I think everybody else is working. Kate [Walsh] has a show and Taye [Diggs] has a show. Tim [Daly] is off doing “Madam Secretary.” Everybody is busy, but if they had a minute I would love to have some sort of reunion in Seattle with them.

Q) What do you think it is about “Grey’s Anatomy” that continues to make it such a fan favorite program?

A) I think there are so many reasons that it has had such incredible legs. Most of the reasons boil down to the genius of Shonda Rhimes. I think some of the reasons are the characters. It’s so character driven and she has this gift for creating these multifaceted characters that you can relate to and root for and also be horrified by. I’m a fan! The fans become so invested in our lives that they actually become family members and friends to us. It’s not like you get to year eleven of your friendship and say, “Goodbye! It’s run it’s course.” I think we really just want to know how our friends are doing and they have all these huge exciting and tragic things going on in their lives that you definitely want to check out every Thursday. Also, I think it is just groundbreaking in so many ways. It would be a long conversation to go through all of the reasons.

Q) You are a part of social media. Why is that such an important way for you to connect with fans and get their feedback?

A) I think it is kind of the future. I think we have entered an age where entertainment is much more interactive and it’s a fantastic way to promote the show and let them know what it is going on, but also to hear especially when you are doing a heavy storyline. On “Private Practice” we did a huge addiction storyline. We were talking about addiction and mental illness and then in a later one we were talking about her baby and the tragic circumstances surrounding that. When you have access to the thoughts and feelings of the audience, the fans, it can really kind of pull you along when you hear that your hard work, sweat and tears that are going into playing these stories is really affecting people and get through their day and tragedies. I think, even as a community, we as actors and show-makers brighten their lives on Thursdays, but then they brighten our lives and give us energy to continue when we hear that our work is actually being received and affecting them. Sometimes you look at the entertainment industry at the glamour side of things and you start to wonder if the job you are doing is relevant and important to the world at large. I think it is in those moments of feedback that you realize maybe I’m not building a homeless shelter today or feeding people in a soup kitchen, but actually our hearts and our souls are being fed and nourished by what they are doing and we are a part of this greater community. I wouldn’t have access to that as an actor without the social media platform.

Q) What would you like to say to everyone who is a fan and supporter of you and your work?

A) Thank you for watching and for loving these characters. Thank you, through the love and fanbase, for allowing us to tell your stories. I think that’s ultimately what we are doing. We are shining a light (and perhaps sometimes exaggerating) these human stories that are experienced in the lives of the millions of people watching. We couldn’t tell them without the fanbase so thank you!


Amelia Isn’t the ‘Black Sheep’ Anymore

A new interview about tonight’s big event. Check it out:

Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) and her big brother, Derek (Patrick Dempsey), may finally be on equal ground.
The siblings clashed in a major way during Thursday’s episode when one of Amelia’s fellow Narcotics Anonymous members outed her dark and sad backstory. It threw the head of neuro’s career in jeopardy after the surgeon worked tirelessly to rebuild from the mental, physical and emotional distress caused by her drug addiction, boyfriend’s death and delivering a baby without a brain.

But the worst part was that the doc received the opposite of support from Derek after she moved from California to Seattle to help him after he planned to take a job in D.C.
“It changes what Amelia understands of their dynamic,” Scorsone tells The Hollywood Reporter of Derek’s decision to not immediately support his sister. “She’s always seen herself as the black sheep of the family. He’s always been this generous benefactor to her. We have a reversal happening. She came to Seattle to help him with his life and he’s pulled the legs out from under her.”
And he really did: After Owen (Kevin McKidd) asks Derek if Amelia should really be the head of neuro, the eldest Shepherd says he can’t answer that — largely because his sister took his job when the surgeon was likely headed for D.C. It leads to a board meeting where Derek eventually does back his sister, but it comes after Amelia finds out about his failure to support her and lashes out at him — and vows to move out of the Dream House.

“She finally is able to disengage from the childhood dynamic she’s always had with him when he was the alpha and she was the beta,” Scorsone says. “She realizes she’s pretty great. Her life was destroyed and she built it back up from nothing on her own without his help. He’s no longer this untouchable golden child. She realizes that she has as much strength and skill and integrity as he does. It really changes the way their relationship dynamic plays out. By the end of the episode, Derek approaches her and tries to make some sort of amends about it. But something has been broken there. ”
Scorsone believes Derek’s behavior has been brought on by stress — in his marriage with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and fallout from his decision to not take the job in D.C.

“He doesn’t even know what he’s doing right now. He’s under so much pressure. He walked away from that D.C. job that he really wanted,” she says. “He made a choice and he had to live with the decision that he made. That resonates very deeply for Amelia because she’s had to live with extremely painful decisions that she made — and not throw anybody under the bus because she feels bad about her situation. She’s had to walk with integrity in the face of terrible circumstances. So Amelia expects the same from Derek.”
What did you think of Amelia and Derek’s showdown?


Amelia soon to be the ONLY Shepherd?

A new interview from Caterina teases us about the posibility of Amelia becoming the only Shepherd at the Memorial’s Hospital. Check it out:

Amelia Shepherd’s happy-go-lucky time as head of neurosurgery at Grey Sloan Memorial on “Grey’s Anatomy” is about take a very dark turn. In Thursday’s (Nov. 13) episode, “Could We Start Again, Please?,” Amelia’s drug and alcohol addiction will come to light, causing a lot of tension within the hospital.

Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) has been a recurring character on “Grey’s” for several seasons, but her addiction so far has only served as a conversation piece for her older brother Derek. The trauma of Amelia’s most recent relapse played out on “Private Practice.”

Not only did Amelia lose the love of her life to an overdose, but the baby they conceived together was born without having developed a frontal lobe. In one of “Private Practice’s” most tear-jerking episodes, Amelia decides to carry on with the delivery and makes the painful decision to donate her son’s organs to save dozens of other terminally ill babies.

Those dark details have been kept under wraps from fans who didn’t watch the “Grey’s” spinoff. Now, a patient at Grey Sloan Memorial recognizes Amelia from her drug-taking days and says she’s unfit to perform surgery in front of the entire hospital — calling Amelia’s ability to be head of her department into question. Making matters worse, wen Amelia goes to Derek for backup, he falters in supporting her.

“He has a weak moment that stuns Amelia. For all of their bickering and competition, she has always looked up to Derek as this virtuous, integrity-filled father figure,” Scorsone says to Zap2it. “She has always assumed that in a pinch that he’ll be there for her. She’s really, really devastated when it comes down to it, and he doesn’t rise to the occasion.”

By bringing Amelia’s past into the “Grey’s” universe, it gives the character deeper roots in the show. The fight it sets up between her and Derek will help Amelia prove that she is as talented a surgeon as her brother and that her place in the hospital is much more than being “the other Shepherd.”

In fact, it could be a setup in helping Amelia transition into being Grey Sloan’s only Shepherd. Derek and Meredith have spent the entire season fighting over whether Derek will go to Washington for his brain-mapping project, and Derek seems as bored with Grey Sloan as actor Patrick Dempsey has expressed being with playing McDreamy for over a decade now.

Deepening Amelia’s backstory goes hand in hand with Scorsone coming into Season 11 as a series regular instead of a guest star. In the early episodes, Amelia has also aligned herself with Maggie Pierce — who is seemingly being groomed to take over as the new Grey (-ish, since she’s Ellis’ daughter and not Thatcher Grey’s).

Is it possible with Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo possibly winding down their time on the show that both Kelly McCreary (Maggie) and Scorsone are setting down roots to be the new Grey and Shepherd?

“You have these really great, accomplished older siblings that have come before them, and the younger generation are really capable in their own right. [Amelia and Maggie] are trying to cast off that dynamic of being the junior,” Scorsone says.

The actress adds that she’s really excited to see Amelia’s trajectory on the show. “The beautiful thing about this character continuing on ‘Grey’s’ is that we get to see what happens how a person kind of rises out of the ashes and rebuilds herself,” she says. “To watch her story continue and thrive is going to be really cool.”

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

Caterina teases a new case for Amelia on E! online

This new interview is for the E! online and have a little preview from what coming next for our little Dreamy

McDreamy becomes McJerk

With a name like McDreamy, it can be hard to see Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) as anything less than perfect. The hair, the eyes, the talent…he’s the ultimate package! But on tonight’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, he’s going to drop the veneer of perfection, and McDreamy is going to be a real…well, McJerk.
Caterina Scorsone, who plays his sister Amelia Shepherd, revealed that when Amelia needs her brother the most, he’s going to let her down in a major way. So what’s going to cause Amelia to need her brother’s support?

“So far, since Amelia has been a regular on Grey’s this season, we’ve seen a lot of her lightness and joy. She’s got a lot of laughter in her and sarcasm and wit,” Scorsone told E! News. “For Grey’s viewers who didn’t know about her journey on Private Practice, there is this whole other deep, dark backstory that we’re going to start understanding in this episode, having to do with her addiction and her tragic history that we saw on Private Practice. And then in the hospital, that backstory is going to be revealed to her coworkers who, like the audience, didn’t know about her history.”
Someone from Amelia’s past is going to shake up her present, revealing her dark history in a very public way at Grey Sloan Memorial. And when the incident leaves her job and professional standing in question, Derek is going to let her down.

“Her relationship with Derek is going to be shaken up in this episode,” Scorsone said. “She would have expected Derek to come to her support and help her and be her knight in shining armor in this critical moment, but he doesn’t quite deliver. It’s really shocking and jarring for Amelia to see that the person she always thought of as her greatest supporter ultimately isn’t there for her.”

In the absence of Derek’s support, Amelia will be forced to seek out other allies in the hospital.

“There are a couple people she turns to in Derek’s absence,” Scorsone revealed. “Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr.), who is also sober, was struggling with Maggie (Kelly McCreary) revealing that she was his daughter, and Amelia helped him with that, so when this happens, he’s the person she seeks out in the hospital. He’s there for her in a protective fatherly way in some really sweet scenes. He helps her put the pieces back together.”

Another person Amelia seeks out for support? Derek’s own wife, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo)!
“She leans on Meredith, too,” Scorsone said. “That has more to do with the relationship with Derek that has been so damaged. She turns to Meredith because other than Amelia, Meredith knows Derek better than anyone. She’s just trying to make sense of what happened between the two of them.”
Grey’s Anatomy fans have been wondering if Amelia would become involved with Owen (Kevin McKidd) ever since Cristina (Sandra Oh) moved away, and this would obviously be the perfect moment for the two of them to connect. But Scorsone said she hasn’t seen that happen…yet.

“I don’t know! It’s so funny because I’m as curious as you are,” Scorsone said. “They haven’t connected romantically yet. They have their first couple of scenes together finally in this episode. There are more scenes in the next episode and there is definitely a connection between them. They both have really tragic, traumatic histories they have had to heal from and live with in an ongoing way. They understand each other in a way that the other doctors can’t.”

Now that her dark past is coming to light at work, should Amelia be worried about losing her job?

“That’s her central worry,” Scorsone said. “After the tragedies that she suffered when she relapsed, she has spent so much time and energy putting her life back together again. In one fell swoop, this person comes in and blows everything apart in terms of the new life she built for herself. So that is her fear, that she will lose her job and her credibility that she’s worked so hard to build when people find out her history. Everything is falling down around her.”
But at least Amelia has one bright spot at work to look forward to.

“There’s a medical case coming up that Amelia just gets mesmerized by in an almost obsessive way,” Scorsone said. “That will propel her for the next few episodes.”

Btw, I’m really curious for this new case that gonna put our Little Dreamy on focus again ❤


New Caterina’s Interview for TV Fanatic

A new interview and HEY SHE TALKS ABOUT ELIZA AWNN ❤

The past is about to rear its ugly head for Shepherd tonight on Grey’s Anatomy Season 11 Episode 7.

Fans of Practice will remember the amazing, emotional storyline with Amelia’s drug addiction and the death of her fiancé from an overdose. When that piece of her history comes to light in Seattle, it makes things very complicated professionally at the hospital … but also personally with her brother, Derek.

I talked with Scorsone earlier this week and she told me about revisiting this moving storyline, as well as how we’ll see it play out in tonight’s episode. Let’s see what she had to say…

Derek vs. Amelia – Grey’s Anatomy Season 11 Episode 7
TV Fanatic: It sounds like Amelia’s past is going to come back and bite her in the ass a little bit.

Caterina Scorsone: Yes, someone comes to the hospital and basically outs her publicly to everyone about really delicate stuff that happened to her in her past and her struggle with addiction. That’s bad for Amelia but it’s kind of good for us as viewers because a lot of the Grey’s audience watched Private Practice but for those who didn’t watch Private Practice there’s this really rich back story with Amelia that we finally get to with this episode.

TVF: I remember talking to you when those episodes of Practice were airing but do you think Amelia thought all this was truly in the past and it blind sides her or has it been more present that we, or she, realizes.

CS: I think her hope is that she didn’t have to address it with everyone. Her addiction and the tragedy that she suffered during her using and after she was using are with her all the time and informs a lot of her decisions. She’s always one choice away from falling victim to her addiction again so that’s always with her. I think she left her relationship, she moved to Seattle to help Meredith and Derek and I think part of trying to heal that pain and leave that part of her behind her and start fresh and here it is rearing its ugly head. Wherever you go, there you are I think that’s a hard lesson she’s learning in this episode and she really will have to face all that again in a new context and deal with hit.

TVF: From the promos it looks like Derek and Amelia get to get in each other’s faces and yell at each other. How was that shooting with Patrick Dempsey?

CS: This is a really, really interesting episode for that relationship. I think Amelia has always held her brother up and he’s always been on this pedestal to her. She doesn’t have a Dad because their father was killed when they were young and Derek kind of filled that role to some extent so she’s always really looked up to him. She was always the black sheep screw-up in the family and he was this awesome, untouchable, virtuous guy. After she’s exposed, she relies on him to come to her aid and he kind of falters. I think it’s really a shock to Amelia and I think it’s a shock to Derek as well and it really shakes up the core dynamic of their relationship.

TVF: And nobody can get you like your family and I’m guessing that’s what we’ll see.

CS: Yeah, I think you show your best and your worst with the people that you’re closest to and that relationship between Derek and Amelia is close for so many reasons. They seem like polar opposites in some ways and he’s really cool and she’s really hot but they both went into neurosurgery. I think the immediate thing that linked them was they were the only two in this huge family who were there and witnessed the murder of their father in front of them so they share that really early traumatic experience and he was shot in the head and they both became neurosurgeons after that.

TVF: Is there a chance that Owen will be pulled into that conflict? I know I’d love to see you in some scenes with Kevin McKidd.

CS: He does get pulled into it awkwardly. He’s the head of surgery so his decisions will end up informing what happens between Derek and Amelia and profession for her and like a lot of people he never heard about her addiction so they’re trying to untangle what is hearsay and what is true and he has to make some tough decisions about what to do in terms of the head of neuro position that she and Derek have been battling for.

TVF: Do we get flashbacks to the story on Practice or how do we get informed into what happened in the past?

CS: They’re informed by other parties and then there’s a lot of gossip in this episode in terms of he said, she said and what’s the real story and everyone is speculating about Amelia. They hear one version of something and she hasn’t really explained her situation yet so there’s a lot of speculation of what really happened so you hear bits and pieces.

TVF: Since it sounds like Derek isn’t really there for her, who does she lean on? Does she have anyone?

CS: She really is lucky to have Weber but what’s neat is they’re both in AA together and he divulged to Amelia and the whole group about being the father of Maggie and Amelia was able to be there for him and now when she’s in this situation he’s the person she goes to at the hospital. She also has a nice scene with Meredith and they have some big sister bonding time.

TVF: And, personally, how is Mom life?

CS: She’s two and a half and it’s amazing. It’s totally life changing and it kind of slows things down in terms of being about town but it’s hilarious every day. There’s a lot of joy.

New interview to Hollywood Reporter

A new interview from Caterina was released today. She talks about this new ep and how this changes Amelia and Derek relationship. Read it bellow:

Amelia Shepherd’s (Caterina Scorsone) past is coming back to create friction with her golden child brother, Derek, this week on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.

The Private Practice transfer has worked tirelessly to rebuild — and recover — from her drug addict past, the grief of losing boyfriend Ryan and the loss of their baby, who was born without a brain.

“The biggest thing in this episode is that nobody really knows the whole story. There is a lot of gossip and speculation because of the way Amelia is outed,” Scorsone tells The Hollywood Reporter of the woman from Anonymous who arrives at the hospital who interprets Amelia’s story for her.
Amelia’s dark history will immediately throw everything into question for Memorial’s new head of neuro, with her fellow staffers each reacting in different ways. However, the biggest surprise will be how her brother, Derek (Patrick Dempsey), responds to the whole flap — though the older Shepherd was fully aware of Amelia’s struggles.
“Amelia would have expected Derek would have been the person for her to turn to and lean on in this time,” Scorsone says. “She does go to him and is pretty shocked by what she finds there — and it’s actually Meredith who ends up supporting Amelia during everything.”
The resulting family drama will throw the siblings’ relationship into question and force Amelia to see Derek — whom she’d previously always viewed as the “responsible, golden child and father figure” — in a new light.
“She’s really expecting some reciprocity there and when push comes to shove, Derek’s reaction is shockingly disappointing,” Scorsone says. “She is surprised by it and he is equally surprised by it. He doesn’t behave in a way that she would ever have expected of himself.”

“That’s what’s so tragic about this episode: She went through more on Private Practice than any human could reasonably endure,” she adds. “She suffered so much tragedy, heartbreak and really has taken the long and hard path back to sobriety and back to a balanced life. Now she’s come to Seattle under these circumstances to be of service and she’s finally proving herself as the chief of neuro and then her tragedies come back to blindsided her.”
“There’s the shock and sadness of seeing that all of the work that she’s done to build this new life in Seattle is being destroyed as everybody is finding out about her past in a way that she’s not in control of,” she continues. “It’s not as though she decided that she’s comfortable with revealing her history and was able to tell the story in a sensitive way; it was taken from her and exposed in a way that she wasn’t in control of and that she wouldn’t have chosen. It’s a pretty exposing and disempowering experience for her.”
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC. Check back to THR’s The Live Feed after the episode for more from Scorsone.
