This is it, Grey's Anatomy fans. In one episode, we'll get to see not only young Bailey (Chandra Wilson), but also sober Chief (James Pickens, Jr.) and un-dead Ellis (Kate Burton), both in their younger years, you know, when they were still flirting in between surgeries and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) was a tiny tot playing with her Anatomy Jane doll.
On "Time Warp" Derek (Patrick Dempsey) revives the Seattle Grace lecture series where seasoned vets present to the group significant surgical cases from their pasts. Bailey reflects on her first days on the hospital, Callie (Sara Ramirez) looks back on a special polio case, while Richard recalls a case in which he and Ellis worked on a patient diagnosed with GRID, the virus that would later be called AIDS.
J. August Richards and Sarah Paulson play younger versions of the Chief and Ellis to shed light on the beginnings of their years-long affair, the same one that largely brought upon Mer's horrible childhood, gloomy disposition, and therefore Grey's Anatomy
as a whole.
