Uhhhh, this seems totally awkward.
We all still remember when Isaiah Washington was cut from Grey's Anatomy after rudely and disgustingly using a homophobic slur…twice!
But now, it seems something has been smoothed over all these years later because he is returning to the show for one episode in May!
Creator Shonda Rhimes has decided it's important to bring his character back at this time despite the dramz he caused the last time he was a part of the show. She explained the decision:
"It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should. 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."
Ahhhh, as we all know Sandra Oh is set to leave the show this year, and her character has quite the past with Isaiah's character.
It certainly is an interesting decision to bring Isaiah back considering the shizz storm that went down as he left.
We guess time - and ratings - will tell if viewers are accepting of this move.
