When will 'Grey's Anatomy' season 12 episode 9 'The Sound of Silence' be aired?ABC

"Grey's Anatomy" season 12 aired episode 8, titled "Things We Lost in the Fire", on 19 November, before it went on a mid-season break and is now expected to return with episode 9 only next year, on 11 February, 2016. And going by the cliffhangers left behind in the mid-season finale, we can expect a lot of twists in various relationships in the returning episode.

Last week in episode 8, we saw Jo and Alex getting indulged in a huge conflict in their relationship. While Jo asked for a break-up, Alex asked her to marry him. But, we still don't know what her answer is?

The mid-season finale also showed Jackson and April having sex, and then again drifting further apart. Is divorce in store for them?

In episode 10, titled "The Sound of Silence", these relationship dilemmas are expected to be answered. First up, Jo may reply to Alex's marriage proposal. The episode will also throw light on Owen Hunt and Nathan Riggs conflict.

Also, there's a huge possibility that Aprila and Jackson may get divorced in the returning episode.

Meanwhile, Meredith and Amelia -- who fought in the previous episode -- will continue facing some tensions and it is clear that Meredith will ask Amelia to leave their home when the show returns.

But, the fans are eagerly waiting to watch if Nathan will bring back love into recently-widowed Meredith's life. The showrunners haven't ruled out the possibility and there could be a new romance blooming here.

"Grey's Anatomy" season 12 is on a mid-season break and will return with "The Sound of Silence" on 11 February, 2016. For more information on the upcoming episode and live streaming details, don't forget to check back here.
