After six episodes, the drama is just getting started on "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13. And when the midseason finale arrives, we should expect it to be a doozy.

Jerrika Hinton (Dr. Stephanie Edwards) and Giacomo Gianniotti (Dr. Andrew DeLuca) recently teased the action ahead, while on the red carpet for the My Friend's Place "Ending Youth Homelessness" fundraiser, where Hinton presented Gianniotti the Champion of the Year award. (Congrats, man!)

Dr. Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) will apparently face more courtroom drama after his rage-fueled attack on DeLuca in the Season 12 finale. "Oh, the trial ... wow!" Hinton teased to Screener. "We just had the table read for the midseason finale the other day, and that reaches a fever pitch." Gianniotti added, "This attack could stay with him for a while. It's tough."

Speaking of "tough" and "fever pitch," fans were furious at the death of Dr. Derek Shepherd, so Screener asked if Patrick Dempsey's absence has left a gaping hole on set. Turns out, not so much. "He's talked about in the episodes by the characters," Gianniotti said. "But more than that, not really." Amazing how quickly the heart moves on!
Before the midseason finale drama reaches a "fever pitch," we can look forward to the arrival of Marika Dominczyk's new consultant, Eliza Minnick, this Thursday, November 3 in Episode 7. Actress Bridget Regan also teased that she is playing a mystery character in the November 10 Episode 8. And beyond the brewing Alex/DeLuca/Jo triangle, we can look forward to/dread more of Amelia's past coming back to haunt her.

There are 24 episodes to Season 13, and fans should probably expect the usual mix of hope and heartbreak every week. But here's hoping the midseason finale ends the Alex vs. DeLuca storyline, instead of dragging it out even further.
