Gather around, my friends, because the February 18th episode of Grey’s Anatomy just got even more exciting. We heard a while ago that this episode would feature some flashbacks involving the Chief and Ellis Grey, which was all very well and good. But now there’s word from Ausiello that Ellis and Richard aren’t the only characters getting the flashback treatment.
It looks like Bailey will also appear in the flashbacks. Young, intern Bailey, in her pre-Nazi days, when she was the one being terrorized by her supervisors! Her hellish supervisor will be played by Missi Pyle, whom you might recognize from many things including Heroes, Pushing Daisies, Boston Legal, and other stuff.
“We’re going to see Bailey when she still called herself Mandy and had not yet learned to speak up,” explains series creator Shonda Rhimes, adding that the first time she laid eyes on Chandra Wilson “all Mandy’d up,” her heart broke. “I know that girl — hell, I was that girl. Mandy is Bailey’s inner geek, and Chandra plays the Mandy of it all brilliantly.”
How awesome is this going to be? I can’t wait to see watch this. Who else is excited about … Mandy?
