One other Gray’s Anatomy fan-favorite got here again from the lifeless tonight.

First, she was on a seashore the place Derek Shepherd was chilling, ready for her. And on tonight’s episode, George O’Malley is hanging out on a lifeguard tower. There’s a complete seashore theme occurring this season, together with its tie-in with the pandemic. It is all very, properly, dream-like. 

This is how George died on ‘Gray’s Anatomy’:

George had one of many extra traumatic deaths on Gray’s. After 5 seasons, the center surgeon (the identical one who was nicknamed “007” after being the primary intern to mess up — get it, a “license to kill”?) declares that he needs to enlist within the Military.

However the story is much more heart-wrenching than “George is an efficient man who sacrifices his personal life to save lots of somebody’s else.” George is introduced in a John Doe since he is so disfigured from the accident — not one of the docs even know it is him till he traces “007” on Meredith’s hand along with his finger. “0…0…7,” she says out loud, lastly realizing that it is George. “It is George!” she cries.

Apparently T.R. Knight was written off the present as a result of friction between himself and present creator, Shonda Rhimes. “My five-year expertise proved to me that I couldn’t belief any reply that was given [about George]. And with respect, I will go away it at that,” Knight informed Leisure Weekly in July 2020. He additionally claimed that Rhimes was towards him popping out, after tabloids caught wind of an argument between actors Isaiah Washington and Knight, through which Washington referred to Knight as a homophobic slur.

“I feel [Rhimes] was involved about having my assertion come out so near the [initial] occasion,” he mentioned. 

Rhimes responded, saying, “I mentioned, ‘If you wish to come out, that is superior. We’ll completely assist that.’ After which he went away, thought of it, and got here again and mentioned, ‘I will make this assertion.’ I bear in mind saying to [fellow executive producer] Betsy Beers, ‘That is our proudest day right here. T.R. acquired to return out, and I acquired to say to him that it would not have an effect on his character’ — as a result of he was involved that he was going to return out and George would out of the blue be homosexual. I used to be like, ‘We’re not going to try this.’ The concept that a homosexual actor cannot play a straight man is insulting.”

Knight did battle with the storyline, which had him cheat on his spouse with Izzie. “From an outsider’s perspective, I get the [impression that] ‘He’s only a spoiled actor…he doesn’t know the way good he has it. There are lots of people who wish to be in my place. However in the long run, I have to be fulfilled in my work,” he shared.
