Why Isn't There a New Episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' on Tonight? 10/19/17

Why isn't there a new episode of Grey's Anatomy on tonight, October 19, 2017? The next episode airs next week on October 26. Why did it skip this week?


Last week was episode 297, called "Danger Zone." In it, Amelia had her brain tumor removed, but her recovery left with her issues remembering things she once knew, including Derek being dead and her ability to speak French. Also in the episode, Richard and Catherine host a family dinner with Maggie and Avery but drama ensues when Catherine informs Avery that he has inherited a quarter billion dollars following Harper’s death. Bailey and Richard also host interviews as they search for prospective new interns, but they fail to find a viable candidate to take on. Meredith and Nathan also team up and research how to bring Megan’s adopted son to the United States. Amelia and Owen also have to deal with information that their marriage is based on a lie. Arizona learns that Sofia wants to leave and go back home, while Jo admits that she hates how much control her ex-husband still has over her life.

Episode 298 comes out on October 26, leaving fans two weeks to digest all the drama.

But what's the reason that a new episode of the 14th season of the hit ABC medical drama isn't airing tonight?

Tonight at 8 p.m. EDT, instead of a new Grey's, ABC will be airing two Halloween specials in its place to celebrate this spooky season.

The first one will be It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. The 1966 animated classic features Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and rest of the cast of colorful characters wishing for a visit from the Great Pumpkin. The Great Pumpkin is a character invented by Peanuts creator, Charles M. Schulz, and is similar to Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.

At 8:30, ABC will continue its kid-oriented Halloween content with Toy Story OF TERROR!, featuring the cast of the hit Pixar franchise, Toy Story.

Grey's will be back next week at its usual time with "Come On Down to My Boat, Baby." According to SpoilerTV, the episode is aptly named as it contains a sea-faring plot.
