Are you ready for Dr. Preston Burke’s pivotal return to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital?
Isaiah Washington sure is, as he’s already on set filming his highly anticipated return to “Grey’s Anatomy,” seven seasons after his controversial exit. Creator Shonda Rhimes previously described his return episode as important closure to Cristina Yang’s (Sandra Oh) story, before Oh departs the series at the end of this season.
“It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should,” Rhimes says. “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.”
Check out the cover of the script of his upcoming episode, which Washington shared on Twitter:
