Rachael Taylor to Appear in Final Two Grey's Anatomy Episodes This Season

at . Comments

Dr. Lucy Fields isn't going anywhere just yet. Despite being cast in the new Charlie's Angels pilot, Rachael Taylor's stint on Grey's Anatomy is far from over.

According to creator Shonda Rhimes, the knockout will return to Seattle Grace after production on the high-profile pilot wraps, in time for the season finale.

“We only really lose her for two episodes,” says Rhimes.

“She’s contractually obligated to us for the rest of the season, so she’s coming back when she’s done [with Charlie's Angels], for our last two episodes.”

Next season, however, is another question. Rhimes fully expects ABC to give the Angels reboot a green light for fall, thus rendering Taylor unavailable for Grey's Anatomy.

“I would love to keep Rachael Taylor forever,” she confesses. “She is delightful [and] so talented. But have you seen the Charlie’s Angels pictures? Those three gorgeous women strutting across the world in those white dresses?"

"I can’t really imagine that that show isn’t going to get picked up.”

Neither can we. And maybe that's for the best for everybody, Taylor included. Because, as Rhimes points out, “We have 13, 14 series regulars on Grey’s already.”

How would you like to see Lucy's storyline end this season?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

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."
