Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: A "New" George?

at . Comments

Will disgruntled star T.R. Knight ride off into the Grey's Anatomy sunset ... but George O'Malley remain at Seattle Grace? Did your brain just blow a fuse processing that one?

This Grey's Anatomy spoiler isn't really a spoiler, in that it's only a theory, with no merit to it whatsoever. Still, it's been thrown around in forums and now by EW's Michael Ausiello:

What if a disfigured "George" returned with a new face (as a new actor)?

If it sounds crazy that George would live, but be played by a new actor after Mark Sloan works his plastic surgery magic, that's because it is. Still, don't forget to consider:

  • That this story line was sort of done already with Alex's love interest, Ava (Elizabeth Reaser), who was so badly disfigured she got to "pick" a new face.
  • That in the third season, Meredith spent some time in the afterlife.
  • That Izzie spent much of Season 5 chilling with ghost Denny.

In short, the Grey's shark has been jumped already, and you can't rule anything out with Shonda Rhimes, even if this stunt would be straight out of Days of Our Lives.

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."
