It appears Dr. Burke is back on set and, according to Ellen Pompeo, all is good in the hood!

After being fired from Grey's Anatomy many eons ago (okay, it wasn't that long ago) for his usage of homophobic slurs, Isaiah Washington was announced to make a return to the long-running TV drama.

Burke's return to Grey's is purely to bring Cristina Yang's story to a full circle since she's set to leave the hospital, but that doesn't mean he isn't going to mingle with his former castmates!

Meredith Ellen hung out with her could-have-been on-screen lover on set and posted their reunion on Instagram. She captioned the pic:

TV Stars Who Came Back After Leaving Their Show, Just Like Isaiah Washington!

Just when he thought he was out…they pulled him back in!

And um…we’re not entirely sure why.

Isaiah Washington bid adieu to Grey's Anatomy 7 years ago after producers fired him for using a gay slur towards his co-star T.R. Knight TWICE!

But Dr. Preston Burke will be returning to the series in May during Sandra Oh’s farewell episode!

Will it be a welcome return to Seattle Grace Hospital for him?

Perhaps he should study up on how some other TV characters made triumphant returns to the shows they once left!

Like George Clooney!

He played a television drama doc on E.R. too, but then became WAY too famous for TV. But not too famous to return for a few cameo appearances before the show finally died in 2009.

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:

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words can ruin your career!

It wasn't too long ago that former Grey's Anatomy star Isaiah Washington was on top of the world, but after the actor twice used a hateful and derogatory slur for homosexuals in public he was fired from the show and quickly lost his way.

The straw that broke the camel's back was dropping an f-bomb backstage at the Golden Globes in 2007.

Isaiah revealed:

Isaiah Washington's On Team Gibson, Not On Team Sheen

As he hasn't done much else since his Grey's days, when a reporter met up with Isaiah Washington recently at an event, naturally he went into talk about about his leaving the show.

But as Isaiah was recalling his big-mouthed fiasco, he segwayed into talking about other celebrities who have gotten in trouble for similar outbursts. Specifically, he mentions Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen.

Of the former, Isaiah called Mel a "talented man", with whom he would love to work with. He compared him other actors, such as Steve Seagal and Spike Lee, thespians he refers to as "teetering between genius and madness."

But while working with Mel might be his dream gig, working with Charlie would be a complete nightmare for him. When asked why he wouldn't be as eager to jam with Sheen, Isaiah replied, "I will say this on record: I'm not a fan of that behavior," referring to Charlie's recent meltdowns.

Uh-huh. Your standards seem to be a little off there, Dr. Burke.
