Well this is surprising news! Isaiah Washington is set to return to Grey’s Anatomy for one episode this season it has been confirmed.
TVLine reports that Washington, who was very publicly fired from his role after an on-set incident in which he used a homophobic slur against colleague T.R. Knight, is set to return as part of Sandra Oh’s departure storyline. Washington’s character Burke was romantically involved with Oh’s Cristina before he left her at the altar.
Oh announced that she was leaving Grey’s Anatomy ahead of the current season and she is expected to depart in the final episode. It’s unclear at this stage how she will leave and if her character will survive.
During the show’s tenth season, Cristina has had a tough time with her best-friend Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) after the two clashed over their life choices and directions. She’s also been having a fling with resident Shane (Gaius Charles).
