Does Shonda Rhimes ever take a day off? The producer’s latest work involves enlisting the tall, dark and handsome Isaiah Washington for a shocking return to Grey’s Anatomy where he once played Dr. Preston Burke. Approaching its tenth season, the director decided that Washington’s character should make an appearance before his on-screen ex-fiance says goodbye to Seattle Grace.
“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,” Rhimes explained.
In case you forgot, Washington’s abrupt exit back in season 3 was the result of insensitive homophobic comments made about his costar T.R. Knight.
