Hector Elizondo to Reprise Role on Grey's Anatomy

by at . Comments

Hector Elizondo will reprise his role as Callie's father on Grey's Anatomy this season, according to a new report. Elizondo will appear in a Callie-centric episode slated to air sometime in November.

Further details on why the father of Dr. Torres (Sara Ramirez) resurfaces are under wraps for now.

Callie's Dad

Grey's just aired its 200th episode last night, and Carlos goes back a long way. Elizondo, 76, first appeared in Grey's Anatomy Season 3, after Callie had gotten married to George (T.R. Knight).

In subsequent years, Carlos was strongly opposed when Callie came out as a lesbian, but over time, he came to accept her and ultimately supported her marrying Arizona (Jessica Capshaw).

The fact that Callie and Arizona are currently estranged after the latter's now-infamous infidelity will surely make for an interesting conversation between father and daughter this time around.

What do you think brings him back to Seattle? Share your predictions and comments below ...

Just glad to see Hector Elizondo back. Have enjoyed him for years on TV and movies.

I think he should come back to be chief of staff.

My first inclination, because I am a pessimist at heart, is that Carlos appearance will be the catalyst for Callie moving out and taking Sofia with her. I just have this feeling of impending doom that this move is on the horizon.

Callie's father is in town to tell her that he also had an affair and he had worked out it with her Mother. People make mistakes so snap out of it.

Not wishing ill on imaginary characters, but my random guess is that Callie's mother is dead. Because what the hell else can we heap on Callie's head?

@Megan- couldn't have said it better myself! This whole story line all I've been able to think about is the scene with Arizona and Callie's dad. And her telling him she's so awesome.

I sincerely hope he throws her whole "good man in a storm" conversation back in her face.

The fact is that in Grey's Anatomy, except for George's mother, you usually don't get to see the family of the main characters when they get injured or killed which I've always thought to be quite odd.

but he didnt come back when she had her crash. he's always been there when she was just fine. Your comment makes no sense, SAJ

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
