Grey’s Anatomy: Who’s Returning to Direct in Season 9?
I don’t mean to sound rude, but can’t Grey’s Anatomy find someone other than its own cast to direct its episodes? I mean, sure, I totally understand a series regular stepping behind the camera once, twice, maybe even three times, but Chandra Wilson (Bailey) and Kevin McKidd (Owen) have already directed seven and four episodes respectively. And now it’s said they will be directing an episode each for the upcoming ninth season. At this rate they might as well just quit acting altogether and devote their time exclusively to directing. But of course, I’m just being a little ridiculous. I haven’t a problem at all with them directing as many episodes as they want. If they want to direct then they should!
The news of their return to directing came from TVLine, but no specifics could be given at this time. It would be nice to have an idea of who would be directing what and when, but we’ll just have to wait and see closer to the premiere. It might not have even been decided which episodes they would be directing yet or perhaps the episodes are still in the process of being written. It could also be they’re trying to keep things secretive.
Occasionally you can learn tiny things about an episode based on who’s directing, usually involving how much of a presence their character will have in that episode. Usually when someone is directing and acting, they remove themselves from the action as much as possible or are even absent entirely. When that’s the case, an in-story reason needs to be found to explain their character’s disappearance, which can range from being “out of town” to “missing,” or possibly “seriously injured.” Trying to figure this sort of stuff takes a sharp mind willing to put two and two together to make five. Often times the guesswork doesn’t hold up, but it’s still fun to play investigator.
