To watch

Grey's Anatomy, 9 p.m., ABC Chandra Wilson directs an episode in which the cast has to recount how they were injured in the plane crash. Good, because we need to catch up.

Parks and Recreation, 9:30 p.m., NBC You mean we still haven't decided what to do with Lot 48? You'd think Leslie would have settled that before she became a City Council member.
