It seems there are rumours circulating about a certain character returning to our screens in 2012.
Although it’s not even official yet, we’ll put it below the cut just in case the rumours turn out to be true.
Last season on Grey’s Anatomy, Dr. Lucy Fields (Rachael Taylor) snatched Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) Africa fellowship right from under his nose, breaking his heart, and screwing Seattle Grace-Mercy West in the process.
If you remember correctly, that little shocker was the catalyst for Alex snitching on Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) while six different kinds of whiskey-drunk. Of course, the real reason Lucy shipped off to Africa was because actress Rachael Taylor had booked a role on ABC’s new show, Charlie’s Angels. Unfortunately (although, somewhat predictably), Charlie’s Angels got the axe earlier this month after just four episodes. But, silver linings, people! Does one show’s cancellation mean Rachael will be free to return to Seattle Grace-Mercy West as Dr. Fields?
TV Line’s Michael Ausiello is willing to bet she’ll be back on Grey’s Anatomy by February sweeps! It sounds too good to be true, but we’d looove Lucy to crawl back into Alex’s arms and finally give him some non-crazy love. Although, series creator Shonda Rhimes maintains that Karev will never have a love like Izzie (Katherine Heigl) ever again. We hope that doesn’t mean he’s doomed to cranky bachelor douchebaggery for the rest of time, though.
If she returns, what do you think Alex’s reaction will be?
Do you think it’d be good if she came back, or would you prefer to see the end of Lucy Fields once and for good?
