After bringing Derek Sheperd, a.k.a McDreamy, and George O’Malley back from the dead, Grey’s Anatomy is gifting fans with another surprise guest.
Chyler Leigh, who played Lexie Grey and was tragically killed off in Season 8, will appear in next week’s episode of the medical drama, according to the promo for the show.
Lexie was the half sister of titular character Meredith Grey, and first appeared as an intern in the show’s third season, quickly becoming a fan favorite. She was later killed off the show when a group of the doctors were in a plane crash, which also ended up killing her one true love Mark Sloane.
Lexie’s return, like Derek and George’s, is not the product of a resurrection,
