Gasp! Is Amelia Shepherd about to have a baby?
The signs sure are pointing that way on this week’s Grey’s Anatomy, and only ET has the exclusive sneak peek from Thursday’s episode, titled “Both Sides Now,” which was directed by Chandra Wilson.
In the scene, Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) adorably freaks out in the supply closet of Grey-Sloan Memorial over possibly being pregnant once Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) unexpectedly enters the room, and is immediately suspicious of Amelia, who is looking “super sketchy.”
At first, Meredith wonders if Amelia is looking for drugs (“I’m supposed to ask, if I care, right?”) -- which she isn’t, just for the record -- and that’s when Amelia blurts out: “I’m pregnant!”
“Owen (Kevin McKidd) must be thrilled!” Meredith exclaims, after congratulating the neurosurgeon on her “baby news.” And that’s when the other shoe drops…
“I don’t know when to tell him. I don’t want him to get his hopes up until I’m sure. He’s really excited about this,” explains Amelia, who was pregnant once before but lost the baby, totally oblivious to the bombshell she just dropped. “I’m late… I’m never late. Never.”
“So… this isn’t real?” Meredith asks, completely unamused. Watch the rest of the scene above to see how the rest of the moment plays out!
In August, ET was the first to report that Scorsone was expecting her second child with husband Rob Giles, and was “very, very excited” for their new bundle of joy.
With Scorsone’s due date falling in the middle of production, the 34-year-old actress admitted at the time “it’ll be challenging” balancing both. “But Shondaland is the best place for that to happen,” Scorsone said.
Though she didn’t believe her real-life pregnancy would be incorporated into Grey’s, at the end of last week’s episode, Amelia and Owen had a deep heart-to-heart about wanting to have children and decided to move forward with plans for a family.
“We're picking up the season immediately after we left off, which was the wedding where Amelia was not pregnant," Scorsone said earlier this summer.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see if Amelia is really expecting!
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
