There's plenty of love and relationship drama to go around at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, and we can expect some to head Arizona's way in "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13.
Arizona (played by Jessica Capshaw) didn't get her fairy tale ending with Callie, and now that her ex has jumped ship for New York, it is the perfect time for a new love interest to appear on the scene. "Grey's Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes recently told Entertainment Weekly that the peds surgeon will explore a new romance in the upcoming season.
"I'm very excited to introduce a love interest for her, and to get to tell a story with her that lets her be who she is, and to see who she is post the relationships that she's had," said Rhimes.
Arizona will be absent for the first two episodes because Capshaw took time off to parent, but after she returns, the fun begins. Rhimes didn't reveal specifics about Arizona's new romantic prospect, but she did indicate that the character will be introduced carefully.
"You don't want to just stick two people together," Rhimes told EW. "I want to do it organically and I want the audience to be rooting for it. So I think we're going to have fun with it."
The aftermath of Arizona's complicated relationship with Callie will be a factor, of course. They do still have a daughter together and will continue to co-parent, albeit at a distance.
We'll see how this new person fits into the doctor's life after Season 13 premieres on Sept. 22 on ABC.
