    I have watched Grey’s since the beginning. That is great to hear. I was very disappointed when Commander in Chief was cancelled. Let’s hope they keep her on for a long time. We need new blood and new stories.

  2. Lola says:

    Maybe she will be Owen’s new love interest

  3. Trinity says:

    As long as she isnt breaking up Callie and Arizona im fine with it all, or it could be Maggie’s adoptive mom

  4. Rose says:

    She might be the last Shepherd sister (Kathleen), since we haven’t meet her yet.

  5. Vicki says:
