Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 left us with more than a few cliffhangers in its midseason finale — chief among them the prospect of Alex taking a plea deal and going to prison — but don’t expect the medical drama’s January 19 return to answer your burning questions.
No, instead Grey’s will start 2017 with a standalone episode seeing three docs heading to a maximum security prison.
ABC just released a synopsis for that winter premiere, and it gives a few details about what to expect:
“Bailey, Arizona, and Jo go to a maximum security women’s prison to treat a violent, 16-year-old pregnant girl and her unborn baby on the midseason premiere of Grey’s Anatomy.”
ABC’s synopsis also revealed the episode’s guest stars.
The Leftovers’ Jasmin Savoy Brown will play Amanda, Intelligence’s Klea Scott will portray Dr. Eldredge, and Finding Carter’s Anna Jacoby-Heron will appear as Kristen.
We also know now that “You Can Look (But You’d Better Not Touch)” — an episode named after a 1980 Bruce Springsteen song, by the way — was written by Tia Napolitano, her ninth time at the keyboard for the ABC hit.
And the episode was directed by Jann Turner, who has recently helmed episodes of How to Get Away With Murder, Jane the Virgin, and Scandal.
So it appears Shonda Rhimes & Co. decided to make us wait a little longer to find if Alex took the plea deal, if Jo has to reveal her true identity, whether Amelia is really leaving Owen, et cetera.

In better news, this behind-bars drama is sure to be tense, especially with a pregnant juvenile convict in duress!
