Mark and Lexie in For "Slow Journey" on Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

Now that it appears his hookup with Callie was a one-shot deal - and that a Calzona reunion is inevitable - what's the deal with Lexie and Mark on Grey's Anatomy?

Backers of last season's unlikely, but endearing couple may not like it, but executive producer Shonda Rhimes says the journey of Mark and Lexie will be a "slow one."

"There's going to be some surprises, but Mark sleeping with someone else never really stopped him and Lexie in the past, so I can't imagine why it would now."

Fair point. This is Mark Sloan we're talking about.

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.
