Hector Elizondo to Reprise Role on Grey's Anatomy

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.

It's a Shonda show, so he will be brought back when Callie is killed, maimed, burned, crashed, crushed, twisted, folded, or mutilated.

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)

Derek: I am calling post-it, Zola, Bailey, the tumors on the wall, ferryboat scrub caps. I thought D.C. was everything. I was wrong. You... you're everything. I love you and I'm not going to stop loving you. I can't live without you. I don't want to live without you, and I'm going to do everything in my power to prove it.
Meredith: I can live without you, but I don't want to. I don't ever want to.
