It’s been known for a long time that “Grey’s Anatomy” was losing three faces by the end of Season 10. Original cast member Sandra Oh along with newcomers Tessa Ferrer and Gaius Charles would all be departing the ABC medical drama by the time this season concludes on Thursday (May 15). While Oh’s absence was finally explained last week — she’s moving to Zurich to take over Dr. Burke’s research hospital, which has the funds to continue her 3D printing of hearts and the potential to actually win a Harper Avery award — residents Leah and Shane’s fates were still a mystery.
That is, until Thursday (May 8) night’s episode, “Everything I Do, Nothing Seems to Turn Out Right,” when one of the two residents was dealt a harsh blow. All week long, all the residents, including Jo and Stephanie, were freaking out over who was going to get fired ever since they overheard Owen and Webber talking about a resident who wouldn’t be a surgeon.
But what about Shane? He’s still got one more episode left this season to explain why he won’t be roaming the halls of Grey Sloan Memorial next season. Will he also get the boot for professional reasons like Leah, or will he choose to leave for personal/professional reasons like Cristina, or will his exit be more dramatic and heartbreaking, like George or Denny’s? We’ll find out next week.
