In the Season 10 spring premiere of GREY’S ANATOMY entitled “Take It Back” (Feb. 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO), the doctors of Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital are preoccupied with their own drama following the events at April's (Sarah Drew) wedding. Meanwhile, April has quite a decision to make: does she tell Matthew (Justin Bruening) to take back his engagement ring or Jackson (Jesse Williams) to take back his declaration of love? While Alex (Justin Chambers) reacts to news surrounding his father, Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) make a big decision about their relationship – will these former lovers finally get back together?

The return of GREY’S ANATOMY leads into SAVING HOPE’s must-see final episode of the season, entitled “Broken Hearts” and airing at a special time (Feb. 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO). Dawn (Michelle Nolden) diagnoses Alex (Erica Durance) with an irregular heartbeat though she’s supposed to be resting. Before Alex gets the chance to pause, The Great Randall (guest star Peter Keleghan, MURDOCH MYSTERIES) returns to Hope Zion Hospital after an experimental cancer treatment goes wrong. Meanwhile, Charlie (Michael Shanks) struggles with the implications of his fight with Joel (Daniel Gillies), who is trying to treat a troubled mathematician. Then, in a dramatic turn of events, the life of one of Hope Zion’s staff is left hanging in the balance. The episode also guest stars Bryn McAuley (CRASH CANYON) and David Storch (MURDOCH MYSTERIES).
