We hope you are sitting down for this one, Gray’s Anatomy followers.
As a result of simply over per week since actually beautiful tv viewers in all places with one surprising return… we now have a motive to consider this sequence could quickly do it once more.
On the Season 17 premiere, Patrick Dempsey came back as Derek Shepherd.
We nonetheless cannot consider that sentence is correct.
However the opening episode ended with Ellen Pompeo’s Meredith collapsing in a car parking zone… as a result of COVID-19 we later discovered… and being transported in her thoughts to a seashore.
On the different finish of that seashore? Her late husband.
Dempsey additionally appeared on this week’s installment and is prone to reprise his function as McDreamy on not less than yet another installment.
May he solely be the primary previous character to look within the current, although? May one other quickly be on the way in which?
On Thursday, November 19, Pompeo fueled rumors that Katherine Heigl — who left the present in 2010 after enjoying Izzie Stevens for the primary six seasons — might conceivably be subsequent.
“Hey it is Gray’s day!!!” Pompeo Tweeted, nevertheless, alongside a GIF displaying her and Heigl’s characters collectively in a season three episode.
Naturally, followers freaked out in response, speculating, as one individual tweeted, “IZZIE COMING BACK??”
“Hey… might you trace us who’s subsequent on the seashore?” one other individual tweeted, to which Pompeo replied:
In contrast to Derek, in fact, Izzie was not killed off Gray’s Anatomy.
The character was written off afterr Heigl insulted this system’s writers, as she actress departed below fairly bitter circumstances.
However that was a very long time in the past — and Dempsey made it clear in his own post-return interviews that point can heal nearly all wounds.
Salivating over Pompeo’s publish, one other person wrote, “IS IT GEORGE…we gotta wait 2 mf weeks??? I can not.”
Pompeo wrote again: “That @ABCNetwork promo division are messing with y’all in a significant approach no? @GreysABC”
There may be one more reason, although, why Pompeo could have shared her Heigl GIF.
A number of days in the past, Isaiah Washington rekindled his feud with Heigl for some motive.
“This girl as soon as proclaimed that I ought to ‘by no means’ be allowed to talk publicly once more,” wrote Washington together with a photograph of Heigl, including:
“The world agreed along with her proclamation again then and protested for my job and my head in 65 languages.
“I want I used to be on Twitter in 2007, as a result of I’ll NEVER cease exercising my free speech.”
Pompeo could merely having been taking Heigl’s aspect in her long-forgotten feud with Washington by sharing that GIF above.
In 2008, two years previous to her departure, Heidl infamously withdrew her title from Emmy rivalry.
“I didn’t really feel that I used to be given the fabric this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to keep up the integrity of the Academy group, I withdrew my title from rivalry,” she mentioned in a press release on the time.
“As well as, I didn’t wish to probably take away a chance from an actress who was given such supplies.”
Shonda Rhimes, who’s now not the Gray’s Anatomy showrunner, commented on Heigl’s Emmy snub on Oprah’s Subsequent Chapter.
She was clearly irritated by the star’s phrases.
“On some stage it stung, and on some stage I used to be not shocked,” she advised Oprah Winfrey.
“When individuals present you who they’re, consider them. I carry that with me quite a bit. It has served me nicely.”
