Grey's Anatomy Set Shots: Burke is Back!

at . Comments

Isaiah Washington is officially back on Grey's Anatomy.

A couple weeks after Shonda Rhimes announced that Washington would reprise the role of Preston Burke on an upcoming episode of the ABC drama, Ellen Pompeo has posted a Twit pic of her and her ex-colleague on set.

And she seems rather excited about it.

"BURKE IS BACK #itsallgoodinthehood#burkeisback," the actress captioned the following photo, which is alongside a selfie Washington took of himself in scrubs.

No word yet on the date of Washington's Grey's Anatomy Season 10 episode, or what brings him back into the fold.

But Rhimes has made it clear the doctor's return will have something to do with Sandra Oh leaving the series as Cristina Yang.

Finally! i have been wishing burke to come back since the episode he left.
also lexie and mark... the show was better with them in it!


! that's a surprise ! I'm gonna 'leave' the show along with Cristina/Sandra Oh.. sigh. I especially enjoyed the first, intense 1-4 seasons- wow. fun! but it became (inevitably?) much watered down.. soapy! (enough of the bath analogy, eh?!) and the 'cuteness' factor, predictable comedic cadences of every character, not to mention the relentless musical background 'commentary' during EVERY, single dialogue.. annoyed me no end.. I still watched, from time to time, because I'd grown fond of the characters/stories. but Sandra Oh, a terrific actress, arguably the strongest of the cast- and Cristina and Meredith's wonderfully rich friendship- were the main things I was clinging to. once her presence is gone, I'll be able to drop it. thank you, Sandra Oh ! I wish her many more "Sideways" calibre roles !


Love this!!! So excited!!!!


This is saving the season for me


Love this!!! I can't wait. Am so happy Shonda pulled this off.

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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
