Kate Walsh May Return Again This Season

at . Comments

Kate Walsh has a big job ahead for fall. First and foremost, the actress has to help with the relaunch Private Practice, the much-touted but somewhat disappointing spinoff of Grey's Anatomy about a beach-based group of randy L.A. doctors.

But even though her character, Dr. Addison Montgomery, is starting to settle in at the Oceanside Wellness Center (David Sutcliffe guest stars as her boy toy!) she may take another trip back to Seattle Grace sometime this year.

The creator and executive producer of both shows, Shonda Rhimes, sort of hinted at this in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.

"I don't know if it's going to work with the story, and we don't want her to come back for a visit if it doesn't feel important, something only Addison can do," says Rhimes, wary of it being seen as a stunt. "But the idea is on the table."

This wouldn't be the first return of Addison; the redhead showed up in a Season Four episode of Grey's Anatomy last spring with Private Practice on hiatus.

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.
