Grey’s Anatomy: Was Season 17 Lousy “To Throw In The Garbage”?
This brand new surgeon will be Dr. Alan Hamilton, who knew Meredith’s mother Ellis Gray (played by Kate Burton) well at the time. He will meet Meredith from the first episode of season 18 and we should also find Kate Burton in the cast. The actress will return to play Ellis for several episodes. Died during season 3 after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease, the character makes regular comebacks to haunt her daughter. The last time was in season 15. It remains to be seen what relationship Ellis and Alan had. Will we find out that he’s Meredith’s real father?
Grey’s Anatomy began filming this season 18 earlier this month. Launch scheduled for Thursday, September 30 across the Atlantic.
