'Grey's Anatomy' Surprises Fans by Bringing Back Two Former Characters in One Episode!

There was a big surprise during the latest Grey’s Anatomy episode when not one, but two fan favorite characters returned to the series!

We already knew about one of them coming back, but the other one was a complete surprise. Both of them had previously died in past seasons.

Throughout the season, Ellen Pompeo‘s character Meredith Grey has been reuniting with several of the show’s dead character on a magical beach that has been described as an “in between place” while she battles COVID-19.

The other characters that have already returned during season 17 are Patrick Dempsey‘s Derek and T.R. Knight‘s George. Living characters like Chandra Wilson‘s Bailey and James Pickens Jr.‘s Richard have also popped up at the beach.

On-again and off-couple Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) and Mark Sloan (Eric Dane), who died in a plane crash in the season eight finale, returned to the show in the episode that aired on April 1.

While talking with the couple, Mark told Meredith that she was “early” to join the dead.

Meredith responded, “I don’t know how to get back. I keep seeing Derek, and he won’t help me get back or come close enough to touch.”

“It’s not up to him, it’s up to you,” Mark replied.

When Meredith asked the two if they are still a couple, Mark said, “On your beach it looked like we are.”

Another character, who is still alive, will be returning to the show.
