Megan's return was a short-term one, and she departed Seattle with her former flame Nathan and her son Falchuk in an episode that aired in October 2017. 

There's no telling what brings Megan back to Seattle, but given that Owen's ex-girlfriend Teddy is pregnant with his baby, her return could be to meet the new addition to the family.

While recasts are generally met with little enthusiasm, Spencer was solid in the role of Megan. 

It did help matters that she shares a big resemblance to Reagan. 

Spencer recently staged a comeback to Suits for one episode, and she is attached as a series regular to upcoming Hulu drama, Reprisal.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
