WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!
Curses, TV world!! CURSES!!!
How can we go on living in a world without [SPOILER: LOOK AWAY NOW IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN KEEPING UP] McSteamy?? Such unnecessary torture! Such agonizing pain!! Why?? WHYYY!?!?!
Even with Shonda Rhimes' eloquent journal entry behind the killing off of Eric Dane's beloved character, we just can't cope well.
Is Grey's Anatomy's budget that bad??
Well… according to one well-placed source, YES!
Apparently, the network insisted on budget cuts for the series to survive, and cuts were need to be made: plain and simple.
The source says:
"Some of the cuts were easy, and some weren't. Very legitimate reasons [were behind Dane's boot]."
But get this — multiple insiders are saying he didn't even ask to leave the show. Ouch!
It's a wound that's hurting us all. And the salt just keeps pouring in!! Now excuse us, we need to go find some diet bonbons.
P.S! CLICK HERE to watch the tearful death scene.
P.S.S! Now while we chose a Sloanless photo for the main pic so we wouldn't spoil too much, we've made it up by adding the steamiest pics of Mark below! Enjoyyy!
