A new clip has been released from Grey’s Anatomy season 11, episode 2 “Puzzle With a Piece Missing” and shows that the tension between Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Maggie (Kelly McCreary) will not go away as easily as viewers might have hoped.
In this clip from Entertainment Weekly, Maggie introduces herself to Derek (Patrick Dempsey) and meets his and Meredith’s daughter Zola. However, Meredith is clearly still angry with Maggie after last week’s episode and comes across and cold and unwelcoming.
McCreary also spoke with EW about what fans can expect from her character and her storyline. “She’s having a hard time connecting with the other doctors at the hospital,” McCreary said. And what can we expect from Meredith when Maggie is finally revealed to be her half-sister? “I think some skepticism is a totally reasonable response,” McCreary said. “How many more sisters are going to come out of the woodwork for Meredith? Exasperation would be a totally reasonable response as well. The audience can infer from past experiences.”
The official synopsis for the upcoming episode says:
In this Maggie centric episode, she continues to try to make a positive impression at the hospital but finds herself in extremely unfortunate situations. Meanwhile, Richard continues to hold onto his secret and the doctors work with a dying woman who is being kept alive by her daughter…
Grey’s Anatomy season 11, episode 1 “Puzzle With a Piece Missing” airs Thursday, October 2 at 8PM on ABC.
