As if ABC’s ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ didn’t pack enough into its gripping, two-part May finale, an even more robust version of the capper will be included on the Season 6 DVD set.
The season finale, which revolved around a disgruntled widower roaming the halls with a tremendously itchy trigger finger, spanned two hours of broadcast time. Even so, series boss Shonda Rhimes had to trim some 18 minutes of content.
So what exactly is new? “Callie (played by Sara Ramirez) sings to a patient in the children’s ward to calm her down,” Rhimes tells TV Guide Magazine. “Bailey (Chandra Wilson) gives the monologue of her life to Mary (guest star Mandy Moore) during the lockdown, and Mary’s husband (‘Cougar Town’s Ryan Devlin) gives a really beautiful speech about what happened to Mary.”
“We had to lose a lot of really great stuff,” says Rhimes.
But lucky for ‘Grey’s’ fans, that lost material can be found on the DVD, in stores September 14.
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ kicks off its seventh season on Thursday, September 23.
