Sheryl CrowAh, the "What might have been?" episode. It's a popular one in television. Friends did it. Community did it. And now Grey's Anatomy is doing it. In a February episode of the ABC series, characters will entertain fantasies of "what life would be like" given a slew of hypothetical circumstances. As the scenarios play out, we might be seeing a few familiar faces of Grey's Anatomy past: specifically, one Kate Walsh, who was a former series regular as Dr. Addison Montgomery, ex-wife of Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey). Walsh will find her way back on set, thanks to the dreamed up scenario wherein her character and Derek are still dating. In other words, shippers will have one more episode to rejoice the duo's romance. Grey's Anatomy airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. -TVLine
