Two more beloved characters returned on Thursday’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Deceased doctors Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) and Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) visited Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) in her Covid-induced beach dream. Patrick Dempsey’s Derek Shepherd and T.R. Knight’s George O’Malley appeared in early season 17 episodes, from beyond the grave as well.
Lexie and Mark helped Meredith work through her existential crisis, with one emotional scene after another. At one point Meredith told them how much she missed them to which Lexie responded, “That’s kind of a waste of time…because we never left you.” Mark added, “Sometimes we’re right next to you, yelling in your ear.”
The reunion brought tears and joy to fans, who celebrated the beloved characters return on Twitter.
The return of fan-favorites from the past lends more credence to rumors that season 17 will be the final season of historic series. While nothing has been confirmed, appearances by actors from the past is often associated with the final season of long-running series.
Grey’s Anatomy airs weeknights at 6 p.m. on ABC.
