According to ABC, the answer to that is “yes.” A holiday-themed episode of the Ellen Pompeo series will air on Thursday, December 16, and the title appears to be “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.” We think this is part of the show’s concentrated effort this year to tell more uplifting, light-hearted stories; yes, we say this very well knowing that the most recent crossover with Station 19 was a bit of a downer; that was a specific situation because an actor was interested in leaving the show.
Overall, the whole of last season was depressing with the focus on the pandemic; with that in mind, we’re hoping for something completely different that’s upbeat, pleasant, and worth at least a few smiles. If we can get something like this to close out the first part of this season, we’ll be happy.
While we haven’t technically heard that the December 16 episode will be the winter finale, let’s go ahead and be honest about it; how is it possible? not be the winter final? It’s hard to imagine a world where this doesn’t close out the first part of the season.
After this episode, ABC has a few options: they can come back in January for a few episodes before leaving for most of January, or they can choose to take a longer break after this episode until March. With the Winter Olympics taking up much of the February schedule, we find it hard to think the network wants to broadcast the opposite. Why deal with the hassle and dropping the reviews?
