Will Davis be the one to dismiss Jessica Capshaw?

Yes, Geena Davis' character, Dr. Nicole Herman, is returning to Grey Sloan Memorial.

The actress was the hospital’s former head of fetal surgery and it appears her return is tied to the looming departure of Jessica Capshaw.

According to Deadline, the episode, “Cold As Ice,” finds one of Grey Sloan’s own “seriously injured, making the team reflect on what is truly important to them. Meanwhile, Dr. Herman (Davis) pays a visit to Grey Sloan and talks to Arizona about an exciting opportunity.”

Davis was last seen in March 2015 when she lost her eyesight following surgery to remove a brain tumour.
