Viewers have been complaining that Teddy isn`t bringing enough to the table on Grey`s Anatomy. But, EW`s Michael Ausiello tells us not to give up on her yet, because she`s going to have a plotline that doesn`t involve Owen or Cristina. After last week, her plotline is fairly obvious, but here`s the scoop!

Question: I’m bored with Teddy on Grey’s Anatomy. Please tell me she’ll interact with someone other than Owen and Cristina soon? —Maya
Ausiello:
I can confirm that in the March 25 episode Teddy will interact with someone other than Owen and Cristina. And there’s a good chance sex will be involved. In other (possibly related) Grey’s news, Leven Rambin is due back as Mark’s preggers daughter, Sloan, on April 29. (I can’t keep a secret — Teddy and Mark are hooking up!)
