Grey's Anatomy > Isaiah Washington Will Not Be Returning to Grey's Anatomy > Comments Page 2
I personally think that season 4 will be really good simply because; Shonda and her team are obviously not stupid, they have already seen, heard and read some if not all the public and fans reactions. I am guessing they have also come to realize what has gone wrong so far with their once upon a time classic writing. Therefore, something tells me they are definately not just going to sit there and do nothing especially when so many fans are threathing to stop watching while some have already lost interest. As for Burke character, yes GA is not going to be the same without him, however, people will get used to it. Just two things though, if by any chance Shonda let something happens btw der and lexie, many fans me included will be very very upset and secondly, STOP THE GIZZIE storyline, it just doenst seem right.
Very well put, Belgian Grey! I totally agree!
Most of these comments are silly. Get a life people.
He served his purpose on the show. Where was his character going to go in season 4? They should also get rid of T.R. I don't really think the show has much of a future because the writers have screwed up the show so bad it's hard to see how it works next season. I saw nothing in the preview for season 4 to make me want to watch.
Well my passion for GA is dead and gone. I won(t buy season 3 because I was not such a great fan anymore but this is really too much. ABC is a bunch of hypocrits that's for sure I hope GA won't win any awards anymore with that show. They have no respect for the fans since by doing this they will loose a lot of viewers and destroy the others actor's future they all we go back where they were. In France S3 is not a success anymore doesn't that say a lot? African American actors who are successfull are not welcome and anything you can find to break their career. If this isn't racism. The gay community should react to defend IW. Bye bye GA thanks for 2 good seasons.
Beautifully Presented Steve..Thank You.
Really, I heard the same thing about KH fighting with castmate, particularly PD. In fact, I heard on one of the entertainment show, that she told him "f**k you".
Really, I heard the same thing about KH.
really? last time i checked it was spelled WILL
I heard Isaiah faught with his cast members a lot.
First, kate leaves to go do Private Practice, now Washington!! What's going to be left of Grey's! Grey's is in real danger!!!! You know, I hate to burst Shondra's bubble, but her goose is cooked! Pretty soon Grey's will be replaced with some sappy drama or worse...a show starring JLo!!!

Correction-- it should have say I didn't see a petition to fire him. That's an old petition.
I did see a petition to fire him, I only saw one to keep him.
Holy Crap! There is actually a petition to fire IW! And there are already more than 20,000 signatures! I seriously can't believe this!http://www.petitiononline.com/at343sh7/
I can't believe it. This has got to be some kind of sick joke. How the hell can they tie this all together?? Burke's just going to dissapear off the face of the earth and Cristina is just going to what... move on like nothing happened?? I know she's all hard and unemotional but I think the season 3 finale proved everyone wrong. So how are they going to make this all work out??
It was a stupid move on their part and I doubt a lot of people will be happy with this decision. The show just isn't going to make sense for a while... and that might frustrate people.
Im not that upset cause i was starting dislike Burke...yeah he is Preston Burke but he didnt act like all the other characters...Burke was mysterious and didnt talk much i love greys anatomy but i wont miss him...
shonda and ABC are suck f***ing losers!!!! first addison is gone, now burke... i dont know what they are thinking back there? they dont care about the fans, they only care about money...
i swear im not watching this nxt season. this show has the wort cast chemistry off the set. other shows have not had this controversy. desperate housewives almost had this kind of thing happened to them but marc cherry was smart and had a strong vote. shonda allowed herself to be a puppet of ABC. im sure next season will tank.
Never said I was a true fan of GA, only a true fan of IW and SO, and the only reason I watched. So no I won't be watching anythiing to do with ABC or Shonda Rhimes!
I'm sad for Burketina fans but I'm not sad for IW.
I don't think ABC is stupid. If they fired IW, they had their reasons, REAL reasons.
ABC and Shonda made only a mistake: they chose IW for Burke's role. If IW played McDreamy (thanks Sir, they chose Patrick) they killed GA.
this is really ridiculous! IW is a great actor and there are alot of people who loves BANG. this is unfair. seriously.
Great post. I totally agree. Hats off to Steve.Body who so eloquently sums up my thoughts as well.
: I hope the TR Knight's return condition was not based on Shonda's decision to fire IW. This is called backmail! IW and Kate Walsh are both leaving the show after a terrible season. THey are good actors!! You're taking a big risk. The chemistry between the original team was great in S1&2. This wedding story that You invented between Burke &Christina in S3 was so silly. When I think Sara Ramirez who was supposed to go is staying and that you hire Chyler Leigh, I don't think the show will be what it was in S1&2 . Shonda, yeah! you burned it all down and S4 won't be build on new beginnings but on future departures!!!
E Pompeo, perhaps, & P Demsey , for sure, will quit the show.
personally i'm glad he's gone. as a character, burke wasn't that exciting. his whole part on the show was with cristina and now thats over. i would like to see them meet again for closure cus he kinda just ran off. but o well.
as an actor, you shouldn't make mistakes as big as the ones he has. and twice! he doesn't even seem like he cares. he's too cocky and thinks he can say and do w/e he wants. well sorry but you can't.
and even if he stayed or left, i'd still watch the show. it doesn't matter. cus people saying they are true fans and then not watching it means you are not true fans. you need to give it a shot. you'll proably like it.
I am re-posting here one reader's comment (from the Seattle PI's "TV Gal" blog) because I think he sums up my thoughts so well:

Maybe Isaiah Washington quoted Howard Beale because it most succinctly summed up what someone in his situation would have to feel after what he's been put through over his idiotic remark.
You're offended by it? So was I. BUT, the conventional wisdom is that we, the almighty public, are not after blood. We want people to admit their mistakes, learn from them, be publicly contrite, and set an example with their subsequent behavior. If that's actually the case - and we're all not just some glorified lynch mob - Isaiah Washington did EXACTLY what we all SAY we want a person like him to do: publicly and openly show contrition, attempt to make sincere amends, and not just try to weasel out of it, ala the entire Bush administration.
The consequences of his thoughtless remark should have been that he was
