Chyler Leigh to Become Cast Member?

Chyler Leigh, a.k.a. Lexie Grey
Despite appearing for a grand total of about two minutes at the end of Season 3, Chyler Leigh almost instantly became Grey's Anatomy's most hated.

So great is the animosity and concern over the arrival of Lexie Grey that many readers couldn't bear to participate in our Caption Contest involving her.

What's to come of the younger Grey intern in Season 4? We'll have to wait and see.

But here's a little tidbit from the TV Guide insider Michael Ausiello on Grey's Anatomy and Chyler Leigh...

Question: I hear that Mer's sister on Grey's Anatomy (a.k.a. Chyler Leigh) will be made a series regular next season. Seriously?
Ausiello: Nothing official yet, but that's what I'm hearing, too. Speaking of Grey's Anatomy, the title of the season premiere just landed on my lap, and, considering what Shonda Rhimes put us through in that finale, it sounds very promising. It's called, "A Change Is Gonna Come."

Looks like there's plenty more to be seen from Lexie Grey. And what do you think the change that's gonna come refers to?

Dear Shonda -
Just my opinion but "happily ever after in the end" isn't good enough.
Your show is crashing - the fun and wit vanished in Jan 07 and has not had even a glimpse of returning.
Your end of the year blog is not from the artist I had grown to respect - it's from someone who reads her own reviews and believes them - so, again, I submit to you a review to consider instead of the press you seem to be reading- from The New York Times at the end of season 3:
(''Grey's Anatomy'' tried to fill the ''Sex and the City'' gap by mixing a playful approach to sex with a swoony look at love, and ended up taking adult romance so seriously that it veered into ludicrous melodrama.)
My summary - dump the drama (and perhaps some of your writing staff's ideas?) - go back to scripts with charming and flawed human beings trying to get on with life and get your sense of humor back.


i just need heh to go away, far away from grey's anatomy!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You are right Kate, i think the success of the show went straight to Shonda's head and she started taking advantage of it. What worries me is that, i think the writters are running out of ideas. What happens to letting the characters grow like normal human beings? merder for instance, can stay together build up their r/ship, have normal couple day to day fight, go shopping, have romantic dinners at a resturants, go fish camping once in a while, do something with his land (build), celebrate birthdays, his family can come visit, get to know who the new woman in his life is, see if mer has got the ellis grey's brains, i can go on and on and on. But i guess i am just dreaming, because, i am not sure from what planet shonda and team came from.


There have been an awful lot of risks taken on Grey's Anatomy... ie Private Practice, the mess of a love triangle between George, Izzie, and Callie, etc...and now there is Lexie Grey. I hope that GA's success has not made the writers/producers too cocky and thinking that they can pull off anything. Of course, it's possible that they could pull it off, but I just hope they don't seriously cross the line - you can only stick your toe in the water so long before someone pushes you in.


I think Lexie Grey would begin to make Grey's Anatomy more like a soap opera.


another love triangle would be too much, but now that thatcher's gone lexi might be the one person mere needs to connect with and to make peace with. just to be able to move on. it's pretty much like alex saying to crush he doesn't remember what's happened to him. in order to move on and learn from your mistakes you either need to leave the past behind althogether or if that's not possible you need to confront. so for what's it worth i'm quite curious to meet lexi.


I'm going to use a quote from Addison.
"The perfect 12 year old."


I'm not going to lie, the second I saw Lexi Grey flirting with Derek I hated her. But I think we need to assume the best for our beloved couple Mer/Der. I'm keeping my mind open to Lexi possibly being positive for Meredith, because she needs family in her life. I have faith in those crazy kids we call Grey's Writers. I bet she'll end up just like Addison. I HATED Addison when she first showed up, but after some episodes, I loved her and was sad to see her leave the Seattle Grace. Anyway, hopefully Lexi won't be as bad as we think, just like Addison was!


maybe shonda is thinking that now that Kate Walsh have left the show to do the spin off of GA maybe Lexie is going to replace Kate as Mcsteamy's partner, or she could be Kate's replacement for Alex, that way Mcsteamy can quit getting in between Mer/Der, Mcsteamy needs a partner and what better than a fresh new intern, Shonda you and the crew are doing such a great job with the show keep up the good work, can't wait till the new season.


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
