Grey's Anatomy does the warp again thing again tonight, flashing back to Owen and Teddy's stint as Army medics in Iraq and shedding light on the duo's pre-Seattle Grace life. The Iraq scenes will also show the origin of Owen's PTSD. In an interview, Kevin McKidd spoke on Owen's obstacles, and how the Teddy situation has sparked so much debate. Including among the very people who write Grey's Anatomy for us ... Q: How much do we learn about Teddy and Owen in this episode? To Read More Click Here .
It's the big Iraq flashback episode tonight on Grey's Anatomy. Just when we thought Owen's (Kevin McKidd) PTSD episodes are over, they rear their ugly heads anew. And what triggered it? Why Teddy (Kim Raver) of course. Her patient chooses to die and Teddy needs Hunt for help. Elsewhere on "Suicide is Painless" Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) have a difference in opinion on what their future holds - no doubt a continuation of their kids debate on the last episode. Ironically, Arizona doesn't want kids of her own, while Callie does. Finally, the surgeon formerly known as the Chief (James Pickens, Jr.) tries to adjust to his role as a surgeon.

* Grey's Anatomy (9/8c ABC) Things ended on an up note for the hot docs last week, both professionally and romantically (although Lexie might beg to differ), but Teddy won't be able to concentrate too much on "responsible adult" Mark tonight because she has pressing work problems (about a patient who wants to die). They're so pressing, in fact, that she must ask Owen for help, and that opens a floodgate of wartime memories for him. They won't be pleasant. Look, too, for signs of trouble between Callie and Arizona. Sara Gilbert guest stars. * NCAA Basketball Tournament (7/6c CBS) So that's why this is one of the world's top sporting events. Last weekend's slate of thrillers, upsets and buzzer beaters leaves a motley group of 16 teams (representing 11 different conferences) to battle it out over the next two nights. Games of note this evening include Wes Johnson and the Orange of Syracuse trying to put an end to the Butler Bulldogs (with the nation's longest winning streak at 22 games), and top seed Kentucky looking to halt the remarkable run of the Big Red of Cornell. * Vampire Diaries (8/7c The CW ) It's been six weeks since the last original episode aired way back on Feb. 11, but the wait appears to be worth it. Tonight, Damon is selected to be one of Mystic Falls few good men to take part in a bachelor raffle to raise money for the town. "A room full of women clamoring to win a date with me," Damon says, "sounds tasty." Of course, with bloodthirsty Damon as the prize, the winner is likely to end up the biggest loser of the night. * 30 Rock (9:30/8:30c NBC) Jason Sudeikis, former Saturday Night Live cast mate of series headliner Tina Fey, returns as Liz's ex-flame. It's a flood of Floyd when he arrives and breaks big news, prompting Mizz Liz to reassess her dormant feelings for him. Meanwhile, after getting punk'd by the writing team, newest TGS player Danny (Cheyenne Jackson) learns the fine art of pulling pranks, courtesy of Jack. And Kenneth sheds light on his oddball childhood, thoroughly disturbing Jenna and Tracy in the process. * Sarah Silverman Program (Midnight/11c Comedy Central ) Jam bands usually inspire fierce loyalty from their fans, who are known for traveling as one community from venue to venue in search of the eternal groove and ever-evolving musical improvisation. But what if it's all in their heads? Sarah has news for these zealots when she attends a freewheeling concert with Steve. Meanwhile, Jay's uncontrollable laughter in the bedroom isn't very funny to Laura. Source Here
Grey's Anatomy 's Izzie has checked out of Seattle Grace for good. "I am done," Katherine Heigl tells Entertainment Weekly. "We just finalized our agreement. Everyone had been working really hard to find an amicable and gracious way of letting go and moving on. It's sad but it's what I wanted." Heigl says it wasn't her film career that prompted her departure. Instead, she says she approached Grey's creator Shonda Rhimes about getting out of her contract 18 months early in order to spend more time with her family. "I started a family and it changed everything for me," she says. "It changed my desire to work full-time." The 31-year-old actress recently took a three-month family leave from Grey's to be with her husband Josh Kelley and their newly-adopted daughter, Naleigh. Heigl was originally scheduled to return for the final five episodes of the season, but that now isn't the case. "I know I'm disappointing the fans," she says. "I just had to make a choice. I hope I made the right one." Are you sad to see Heigl leave the show? Source Here
A Grey's Anatomy rep confirms that Jesse Williams, whose character was introduced in the current sixth season, will be back for the following season (2010-11) as Dr. Jackson Avery. 'That is good news,' the star told TV Guide upon hearing the news. 'I did not know. I mean I had fingers crossed. They said, 'We feel great about you.' It was everything but the word.' Jesse may be surprised, or just very modest, we are certainly not. Since arriving as a Mercy West transplant and shaking things up, he's emerged as an intriguing character this year.

ABC and Grey's creator Shonda Rhimes have agreed to let the 31-year-old actress out of her contract and an announcement may be made later this week, a source told the website. ABC had no comment, while Heigl is currently without a publicist. Heigl has been MIA for most of the medical drama's sixth season, taking a leave of absence to shoot a film and to spend time with her daughter, Naleigh, whom she adopted in the fall. Her most recent episode aired in January. She was scheduled to return to the set earlier this month, but didn't show after her messages inquiring about her call times went unreturned, the source said. It's unclear how her character, Izzie Stevens, will be written out, but Heigl, who won the show's sole acting Emmy in 2007, is not expected to return at all for the final five episodes of the season, according to Entertainment Weekly (which first reported the story), making her January appearance her final (regular) hurrah as Izzie. Heigl's reported exit follows years of drama between her and the ABC hit. She slammed Isaiah Washington in 2007 for using a slur about their co-star and her good friend T.R. Knight. A year later, she removed her name from Emmy eligibility because she "did not feel I was given the material ... to warrant a nomination." Last summer, she told David Letterman that she found the show's 17-hour day on the first day back on Season 6 to be "cruel and mean." How do you think Heigl's exit should be handled? Will you miss Izzie on Grey's? Source Here

Words on the block are, Katherine Heigl and her Dr. Izzie Stevens will no longer be part of "Grey's Anatomy". The actress who took a three-month maternity leave was supposed to report back to duty on March 1 but she reportedly "was not there". On further development, it is said that Heigl would like to be off her contract so that she can concentrate on her film career. EW reported that a final exit agreement between Heigl's camp and ABC Studios is underway. Creator Shonda Rhimes allegedly has also agreed to this release. If the deal goes through then the last appearance of Heigl's Izzie has already aired. ABC is yet to give a comment on this, so is Rhimes. The show is five episodes away from the season finale. "I know I've been AWOL for the past few weeks. I'm in the midst of writing one finale and planning the other finale," Rhimes tweeted on Monday, March 8. Katherine Heigl and her husband Josh Kelley adopted a special needs baby girl named Nancy Leigh from Korea. She took a leave from the series to concentrate on being a mother. Also, she put the focus on starring in feature films such as "Life as We Know It" and "Killers" which are released this year. Source Here
