A lot will happen on Thursday's Grey's Anatomy – Derek starts on a series of trial surgeries that Meredith isn't asked to work on, Cristina is back but jousting with Jackson to work alongside Teddy, and Richard gets hip to technology – but the biggest thing is that the episode has a new director, actor Kevin McKidd.
The Scottish actor, who plays Dr. Owen Hunt, steps behind the camera for the first time as a director on the Feb. 3 episode, titled "Don't Deceive Me (Please Don't Go)."
"It's really scary to take on something big like this because it's so new," McKidd, 37, tells PEOPLE, "but everyone brought their A-game to really support me, and I'm blessed that they did. They know how scary it is."
