The Case of the Missing Grey's Anatomy Character

at . Comments

Why is one fan-favorite character on Grey's Anatomy suddenly MIA?

It's a question many of you have discussed, and an insider report on E! Online today may shed some light on it. Warning: This does not paint a pretty picture.

The article does not name names, because the truth hurts, but forming an educated guess as to who's being talked about isn't that difficult:

A source close to the show says: "The reason [he/she] has not been on is because [he/she] has been a pain in the ass lately, trying to change scenes and dialogue, being hard to work with and putting up an attitude. The higher-ups were getting tired of it, so they tweaked [him/her] out of some episodes. That's why you haven't really seen [him/her] lately."

A second Grey's Anatomy source seconds that information, adding: "[He/she] is not really getting along too well with producers right now."

To play devil's advocate, Grey's Anatomy characters have seen fluctuating amounts of screen time throughout seasons, so maybe this character will stage a resurgence. But it's not looking like he or she is in the producers' good graces at the moment.

Let's see ...
The main characters are:
1- Meredith: Grey's Anatomy is all about her but still they are swapping the storyline around Lexie now (This season she dosen't show as much) 2- Derek: As they did with Burke, he could be removed aswell (He does show this season) 3- Christina: An edge that hardly can be removed specialy with the new love spin 4- Alex: Has a lot of air time 5- Ezzie: This season revolves arround her 6- George: Not seen much 7- Miranda: Cannot be replaced (Not seen much) 8- The Chief: Can be replaced 9- Mark: aka McSteamy has a new storyline plus this season revolves arround him aswell 10- Lexie: Has ALOT of air time plus a storyline 11- Cally: Seen alot What I truly think:
Grey's anatomy revolves arround Seatle Grace not the stars themselves. Throughout the seasons it kept revolving arround Meredith & Derek along with other storylines rissing along. Stars joined and others left but still we love the series no matter what. We still miss Burke & Addison, but the writers were so smart to keep us all hooked.
If a star is fired I think it would be either Meredith (Shock) or George. Hope it isn't Meredith ... Starky ...


I love George...he has to stay!!! He's like the favorite little brother, that keeps the family in line. That's so sad if he's really leaving!!!


I miss the old greys.... when no one would get limited airtimE


Hahn already got fired. Do you all not read the news on here? It's not George. Thank God. I hope they never bring Burke back. I could never stand his character. He was boring and there wasn't anything interesting with him. Cristina made him a little interesting from time to time, other than that he was dull. Cristina and Owen are a better match, hell, they're basically perfect for each other.


While the behavior of IW was completely uncalled for and disrespectful, it is done and over with. These are adults and should be able to move on. The world is ugly and unfair, grow up, work together, move forward...I think they should bring IW back...the show needs him. His character was a very strong character and added greatly to the show itself. It is not the character George, I think it is Hahn or the chief.


Bring Burke back...the show needs him!! And, I do not think it is George, I think it is Hahn. The story between her and Callie was weak at best and now Callie is all of the sudden bisexual leaning towards being a full-time lesbian...this sounds like a bad story line from ER. You killed Denny off, now end it and move on. Something needs to start happening with Mer/Der. The character friend of Meredith's needs to go, she does not fit in well. Deeper stories for the main characters and stop adding new ones...we won't be bored!!


george OR the chief. i feel like it's even between them. the chief proposed to make all these changes and hasn't really followed through with them. where has he been?? and george just comes and goes.


It's McDreamy. That answer came through clear on Thurs night's episode. He's in the middle of Cristina and Meredith's fighting, his patients keep dying, and he's just not happy anymore.
It's not George. He's making a good comeback to the show so far and I can see him making a breakthrough in finding out what's wrong with Izzie and getting her help. We all began to see that Thurs night when he asked everyone if they noticed anything. If anything, George and Izzie will hopefully become best friends again.


But, now that I think about "All By Myself," I think George may have a big storyline coming up that includes Izzie's crazy self. Maybe he will be the one to call everyone's attention to it or force her to get some help.


I used to love George, even now I hate how it ended with him and Callie. But if it is TR that they are talking about, it makes me wonder how things really went down with Isaiah Washington. Anyway, wouldn't it be a trip if Dr Burke came back to Grey's? I bet Christina would have some words for him!! :)


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.
