The medical drama and ABC’s hit TV series, “Grey’s Anatomy,” is welcoming back a star from their very first season on its Season 10. Well, he’s not really coming back to the show but he’s going to star in one episode. Do you have any idea who this is? It’s Dr. Burke (Isaiah Washington)!
Washington was the head of cardio during the first seasonof “Grey’s Anatomy” and was also Cristina Yang’s (Sandra Oh) love interest. He was fired from the show due to homophobic comments towards his co-star T.R. Knight.
Putting the past behind them, Washington will appear on an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” as Dr. Preston Burke, once again for Dr. Cristina Yang’s imminent departure from the show.
Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) took a photo of her and Burke and posted it on Instagram, with a caption, “BURKE IS BACK #itsallgoodinthehood #burkeisback.”
Washington also took a picture of him in scrubs bearing the caption, “#Day2 Done. #BurkeIsBack.” He posted it on his official Twitter account.
We are all so excited with Washington’s guest appearance on “Grey’s Anatomy,” and we really do miss the brilliant Preston Burke!
“Grey’s Anatomy” creator, Shonda Rhimes said in an statement,
“It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should. Burke is vital to that journey – he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang,” said Rhimes in an ET report.
We’re still sorry that Cristina Yang is leaving the show, but we’re also excited on how everything will unfold before she departs, especially the fact that Burke’s going to be there.
Dan Bucatinsky, Grey’s consulting producer teased on his interview with E! News that fans will “be blown away with the manner in which it happens.”
Oh that statement just made it even more exciting! Don’t miss it, there are few episodes left before “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 10 wraps up and from our experience, every season finale of “Grey’s Anatomy” always leave us with mixed emotions, in a good way, though!
Burke’s scrubbing in, are you excited for this? We want to see Yang’s reaction when she sees Burke walking the halls of Seattle Grace Hospital once again. This one’s going to be epic, for sure! “Grey’s Anatomy” airs every Thursday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
