On 'Grey's Anatomy,' a Blast From Richard's Past Threatens His Marriage

By

Dr. Richard Webber has obviously had big problems with fidelity in his past, and it seems like he could be barreling toward another disastrous affair in Season 16 of Grey's Anatomy. If you missed her first appearance last season, you may be scratching your head wondering how Richard knows Gemma, the woman he ran into at the hospital, and whom he opted to go out with rather than going home to patch things up with Catherine.

So who is Gemma on Grey's Anatomy — and how big a role will she play?

Gemma, played by Jasmine Guy, first showed up in Season 15, Episode 22, "Head Over High Heels," and the title of that episode basically alludes to the accident that landed Gemma in the ER with a stiletto sticking out of her chest. It turns out she had indulged a bit too much and woke up to find she had somehow stabbed herself in the heart with her own shoe.
