Season 19 of 'Grey's Anatomy' is filled with nothing but surprises for the fans. This season started with Chief Grey showing around the interns to Bailey assigning a sex-ed assignment to the new interns while Kate Walsh's Addison Montgomery supervised. This season makes the watchers feel like they walked down memory lane as the resemblance of this season to the first season of 'Grey's Anatomy' which was released in 2005, is surreal.

Moving on, Tom Koracick is an attending neurosurgeon at the Catherine Fox Foundation. He was the Chief Medical Officer of the Foundation before being replaced by Richard Webber. He was Head of Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he trained Amelia Shepherd in the field. In Seattle, he developed a relationship with Teddy Altman until she chose Owen after having his baby, though the two later developed a short-lived affair. Germann left what had become a series-regular role in Season 17, when Koracick, having won his battle with COVID but having lost Teddy to Owen, decided to move to Boston to help Jackson run his mother’s Catherine Fox Foundation.

Tom used to put up a tough exterior at work and he is not shy from praising his own skills, both of which contribute to other people generally disliking him. However, Tom is funny and actually an emotional person. As such, he knows when to let go of his tough facade and show his true colors to people who are in need of comfort, like when he helped April Kepner acknowledge her crisis of faith or when Miranda Bailey needed some comfort after suffering a miscarriage. The loss of his son David rendered him with a notable soft spot for children as evidenced by his excellent bedside manner with Kimmie Park and the lengths he went to to make her final weeks perfect for her in Season 14 of 'Grey's Anatomy'.

According to Epic Stream, the plot of the fifth episode is that Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) will meet Jackson on her way to Boston. Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and Addison (Kate Walsh) will go on a road trip to volunteer at a family planning center. However, they will be met with a huge problem; a patient's ectopic pregnancy will lead to serious complications. On the other hand, the interns will turn into detectives in 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 19 Episode 5 as they try to investigate Lucas' (Niko Terho) relationship with Amelia (Caterina Scorsone).
