Sorry I think Grey's has a big enough cast. And they don't need to add any more.....I mean the writers can't give Avery, Alex or even April a storyline. I just see NO reason to add more when they should have DONE more to keep Lexie and Teddy!

Hmmm. Not keen. I can't see him fitting in on Grey's. Just looks like another Jackson Avery tbh. But yeah I'm also still grieving Lexie and bummed that Teddy left so I'm not really looking forward to more people when we only just lost two huge characters. I miss the oldies, George, Izzie, Lexie... Sometimes its hard not to hate Shonda.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
