The departing "Grey's Anatomy" cast members are saying their goodbyes this week, although we won't see that finale episode for another month.
Season 14 just gave Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) a breast cancer scare that -- thankfully -- turned out to be false. We do know she and Dr. April Kepner (Sarah Drew) are leaving at the end of the 24-episode season, though, so every moment with them is precious.
It looks like next week's episode is going to put Arizona at the center of a spiked cookie incident, but our eyes are on the April 26 episode for a possible clue on Arizona's exit. That's also the episode bringing back Nurse Olivia, which you may already know.
Here's the synopsis for Episode 21, "Bad Reputation":
The hospital brings in crisis management to help them sort out allegations against Harper Avery. Meanwhile, Nurse Olivia shows up at Grey Sloan with her son, throwing Alex and Jo for a loop; and Arizona decides to spend more time with Sofia who is having a hard time at school, on "Grey's Anatomy," THURSDAY, APRIL 26 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT) on ABC.
Arizona deciding to spend more time with daughter Sofia could be a big hint to her exit. Will she decide to move to New York so Sofia can be closer to both of her mothers? It does seem like the show has been leaning in this direction for a few weeks now.
It looks like both Arizona and April will be featured until the finale -- Episode 24, titled "All of Me." The actors appear to be filming that episode this week:

"Today is my last day filming at Prospect Studios. Not my last day filming on #GreysAnatomy, but my last day filming at Prospect Studios. Full of lots of nostalgia." - Jessica Capshaw pic.twitter.com/9Vq5yMsIc3— JustinChambersOnline (@JChambersOnline) April 10, 2018
Starting my last day on the hospital stages. (Not my final final day- I still have some location work to do). Feeling full of love and also sweetness and sadness. I love my family here with my whole heart. I love this one right here. @camillaluddington is a gorgeous soul- inside and out- keeps me laughing and is a brilliant talent. 😘😘❤️❤️
We're gonna miss 'em.
"Grey's Anatomy" Season 14 airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The big finale should air in mid-May. In the meantime, will this Thursday's episode, "Beautiful Dreamer," reveal how we say goodbye to that other departing cast member?
