A wedding may have brought them all together at the end of last season, but the Grey's Anatomy Season 13 premiere made it clear that these doctors are gearing up to face a major divide among themselves. Now that Alex Karev has been arrested for attacking DeLuca, there's a good chance he could end up being convicted and sent to prison for several years. So his colleagues at the hospital have a very important decision to make: who are they going to stand by? Because, let's face it, this fight may be between Karev and DeLuca, but all of the show's main players are going to get dragged into it at one point or another. So who will side with Karev in the end and who will support DeLuca? That has yet to be determined, but it's bound to create some very real friction around Grey Sloan Memorial in the very near future.
Judging from the promo, DeLuca will be up and about very soon, not to mention determined as ever to see his attacker brought to justice. It seems accurate that Maggie will side with him and Meredith with Alex given their BFF status, but where does that leave everyone else? I feel like Ben would be on DeLuca's side since he seemed pretty disappointed in Karev when he figured out what happened. Riggs may go with Meredith if for no other reason to try and win her favor. Richard and Bailey will probably align with DeLuca since they know Karev was in the wrong. And as for Jo, well that's a really tough call, considering she was engaged to one and the other knows her deepest, darkest secret.
Either way, this could definitely cause a lot of chaos for our beloved doctors and unexpectedly tear apart a few alliances. Let's just hope the hospital can survive this latest bit of drama.
