In a surprising turn of events, but not at all surprising to the mind of Shondra Rhimes, Isaiah Washington is making a return to Grey’s Anatomy after seven years of absence. Can anyone guess why this would be happening now, in the show’s tenth season? If you guessed it was because of Sandra Oh’s impending departure than you would be absolutely correct. Washington’s Dr. Preston Burke was very important to Oh’s Cristina and to say goodbye to her after all these years without addressing her past relationship with Burke just wouldn’t feel right.
Washington starred in the first three seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, but was fired after on-set clashes and a series of anti-gay remarks made toward his then-closeted co-star T.R. Knight. The series was right to let him go, even if it meant that Cristina, who was engaged to Burke, would wind »

Isaiah Washington may have left Grey’s Anatomy on a bad note, but that’s not stopping fans of the show from celebrating his just-announced return as Dr. Burke.
In season 3, Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) and Burke were engaged. They were working together. They were in love. Then Burke left Yang at the altar, and that was the last we saw of him. Now that Oh is leaving the show, creator Shonda Rhimes said she felt his return was an integral part of providing closure to Cristina Yang. But what will happen between the two? We’ve got some ideas: »

It's time for a blast from the past. In slightly shocking news, Grey's Anatomy is set to welcome back former star Isaiah Washington, whose controversial exit from the series in 2007 made headlines. In a statement, Grey's boss Shonda Rhimes said the return of Burke (Washington) was essential to bring Christina's journey "full-circle" before Sandra Oh departs the ABC hit series at the end of the current season. Of course, Washington isn't the first big star to reprise the TV role that made him famous, as actors such as Steve Carell and George Clooney have returned to their former small screen stomping grounds in the past... Many series tend to welcome back actors who departed »
Who says you can't go home? Isaiah Washington will return to Grey's Anatomy this spring for one episode, an ABC spokesperson confirms to People. Washington, who played Dr. Preston Burke for three seasons, was fired from the show in 2007 after his comments about former Grey's costar T.R. Knight's sexuality. Viewers saw Washington's exit from the show when Burke left his fiancée, Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) at the altar. This spring, Oh will be leaving the hit drama, now in its tenth season.

Isaiah Washington is returning to Grey's Anatomy, seven years after he was fired from the show for using gay slurs on set. Sandra Oh is leaving at the end of this season, so the return of Dr. Burke — the guy who ditched Cristina at the altar — is part of creator Shonda Rhimes's exit plan for the character. "It’s important to me that Cristina's journey unfolds exactly as it should. Burke is vital to that journey — he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang," Rhimes said in a statement. Oh, man, Cristina and Burke had the best romance. She should ride off into the sunset with him. »

You can’t go home again — unless you’re a television star.

E! has ordered its first scripted drama, The Royals, about a British royal family with Elizabeth Hurley starring.
Lana! Lana! Laaaaaana! Guess who got renewed? Yep, FX has ordered a sixth and seventh season of the hilarious Archer.
In disappointing news, the BBC is shutting down BBC Three. Why should U.S. viewers care about this decision? BBC Three is the source of a good number of shows that developed loyal followings stateside like Gavin & Stacey, Being Human, Little Britain, and Torchwood. The channel will continue as a streaming video channel, but celebrities like Matt Lucas are already campaigning to save the channel.
I’m not sure how I feel about the news, as reported by EW, that Isaiah Washington will return to Grey’s Anatomy. At first I was angry, but it’s a one-episode appearance as part of Sandra Oh‘s exit from the series. I guess »

Isaiah Washington, who hasn’t been seen on Grey’s Anatomy since season 3, will be returning this year to reprise his role of Dr. Preston Burke.
Isaiah Washington To Appear On Grey's
Washington is expected to return as Burke, an award-winning cardiothoracic surgeon, in a Grey's Anatomy episode set to air on ABC in May. Back when he was on the show, he served as Cristina Yang’s (Sandra Oh) primary love interest. When he injured his hand, it was Yang who stepped up to finish his surgeries, but she wasn’t able to walk down the aisle to marry him – leaving him at the altar.
Burke’s character was eventually written out of the show after Washington called out gay actor T.R. Knight, who played George O’Malley on the show for several seasons, by a gay slur. Since then, Burke has been referenced by the show’s characters but not seen. »
Grey’s Anatomy “You've Got To Hide Your Love Away “ began with a montage of the couples having sex, withholding sex, and vowing for a new start.
Grey's Anatomy Recap
As Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) talks about the pervasiveness of cancer in a voiceover, Jo (Camilla Luddington) and Alex (Justin Chambers) are rolling around in his bed – the awkwardness of the forgotten proposal clearly behind them. Meanwhile, unmemorable couple Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Emma (Marguerite Moreau) are going at it in the trailer bed. Lying in each other’s arms, they discuss moving to a bigger place, because Emma just really isn’t a fan of living in a “tin can.”
Meanwhile, Meredith and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are at home getting ready for the day. When Derek asks Meredith what tie he should wear to meet the president, she admits she’s happy for him as a doctor, but not as »
We all knew the new rule on "Grey's Anatomy" wouldn't last.
Last Thursday, the board of Grey Sloan Memorial instated a rule banning all inter-hospital relationships, excluding already married couples. But did you think that rule would fall apart immediately? Because it sure did, on Thursday's (March 6) episode, "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away."
Not only did unmarried-but-still-together couple Alex and Jo continue to see each other (first trying a fake breakup and sneaking around until they were caught in a closet by Webber), but the head of the hospital, Owen, hooked up with Yang!
That's right, not only did the person supposed to upholding the new rule hypocritically break it, but he broke it by cheating on his girlfriend and reigniting the spark with his ex. Wowza. And the cherry on top? He realized he doesn't want kids after all. He wants to come home at the end »
Former cast member Isaiah Washington is coming back to Grey's Anatomy. The actor was one of Seattle Grace's originals doctors, but was fired from the Shonda Rhimes drama in its third season, under less-than-ideal circumstances. Washington was accused of making homophobic comments directed toward costar Tr Knight, who had not yet come out as gay. This is a controversial move for the show, but Washington will only reprise his role of Dr. Preston Burke for one episode on May, to help fans say goodbye to Christina Yang (Sandra Oh). Rhimes commented on his return: "It's important to me that Cristina's journey unfolds exactly as it should . . . Burke is vital to that journey - he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang." Despite the fact that Knight is no longer on the show, I still think it might be tense to have Washington on the set. »

Isaiah Washington will return to reprise his original role as surgeon Dr. Preston Burke on ABC's Shonda Rhimes medical drama Grey's Anatomy, 7 years after he was dropped from the show, after on-set controversies involving his Grey's co-stars T.R. Knight and Patrick Dempsey. It's not a permanent return, however. Washinton will be guest-starring as his former character in an episode of the drama series scheduled to air in May.
