Grey's Anatomy Is Bringing Back Derek's Sister Amelia on a Recurring Basis — But Why?
There’s something about Amelia… that will necessitate an extended Grey’s Anatomy visit from Derek Shepherd’s youngest sister.
Caterina Scorsone, who created the role of substance-abusing neurosurgeon Amelia for the Grey’s spin-off Private Practice, will return to ABC’s hospital drama in early May, TVGuide.com reports — but not just for a one-off encore, but to recur through to the end of the season.
No details are yet available on the storyline dictating the once-estranged Shepherds’ reunion.
Scorsone has twice before brought Amelia to Grey’s — most recently in February 2012, when Derek’s counsel was sought in treating Cooper’s baby mama Erica.
Why do you think Amelia might be a keeper this go-round?
