After nine years, Lexie Grey will return and join her half-sister Meredith on her COVID-induced coma beach. The only thing that would make this reunion better, however, would be if the show also had Lexie’s true love, Dr. Mark Sloan, join them.

Meredith Grey had an emotional reunion with one the most beloved characters from “ Grey ’ s Anatomy ”.

While Meredith kept saying how much she loves it on the beach, Lexie and Mark talked about what they miss about being alive and urged her to choose life. “Don’t waste one single minute,” Mark said in their final conversation before Meredith was taken out of the coma, possibly ending the season-long beach motif, conceived by showrunner Krista Vernoff, which also featured visits from Patrick Dempsey’s Derek Shepherd and T.R.

‘ Grey ’ s Anatomy ’ Returning Star & Showrunner Krista Vernoff On Touching Reunion & More 04 December 2020 Owen faces a medical diagnosis that challenges more than he imagined. I'm actually surprised it's not a David Kelly Show (Boston Legal) - it seems like something he'd create.

During Thursday’s episode of Grey ’ s Anatomy , Jackson (Jesse Williams) and April (Sarah Drew) ventured to Montana for a surgery, but Jackson had an ulterior motive: to meet his estranged father, Robert Avery (Eric. While the reveal initially causes tension since Jackson hid the truth, ultimately his letting in April leads to a reconciliation of sorts as the duo sleep together after a successful surgery — and despite an unfruitful reunion with his father. Is this the first step toward a renewed Japril relationship?

In an interview with Deadline, Dane spoke about how his Grey’s return came about. He took us behind the scenes of filming the beach scenes with Pompeo and Leigh, sharing his take on Mark and Lexie’s relationship status and the duo’s pivotal role in giving Meredith strength to cling onto life when she is taken off the ventilator.

DEADLINE: When and how did you get approached about returning to Grey’s Anatomy?

ERIC DANE: I was in Shanghai, filming a movie, a Chinese production for that market, a historical piece, and Krista reached out to me and said, “Hey, I’d like to talk to you about something, let me know when you have some time.” I said, “Well, I’m in Shanghai, China right now, let’s talk right when I get back.” I don’t remember the timeline; I know I was in Shanghai in August. She explained to me what was happening in the story, and she said, “We want to put Mark Sloan on the beach with Lexie Grey.”

DEADLINE: What was your reaction? Did you like the idea?

COVID protocol-related absences: 03/31/21

  COVID protocol-related absences: 03/31/21 Each day, the NHL will publicly release the list of players that are unavailable to their respective teams due to being in COVID-19 Protocol. Here is the list for today: © Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports Anaheim – Alexander VolkovBoston – Jake DeBruskFlorida – TBALos Angeles – Brendan LemieuxMinnesota – Zach PariseMontreal – Joel Armia, Eric StaalNY Rangers – Brett Howden Vancouver – Adam GaudetteAs a reminder, inclusion on this list does not mean that a player has tested positive for Coronavirus or even that they have been confirmed as a close contact to another positive person.

DANE: Yeah, I thought it was a great idea. I thought it made sense, considering the circumstances.

DEADLINE: What do you mean?

DANE: I mean, if you’re ever going to bring Mark Sloan back, I guess with Meredith in a coma, it’s a good way for her to see him. So, it wasn’t a tough sell, and it made sense.

DEADLINE: Tell me about the filming of your scenes. You got to spend time with Ellen and Chyler, the crew. How was it going back into character, revisiting your past and reuniting with old friends?

DANE: It was like I’d never left. It was a great day at the beach. It was great to see some of the familiar faces and same crew members, and we didn’t skip a beat. I love those people. I spent a significant portion of my life with those people, I’d do just about anything for them.

DEADLINE: What did you, Ellen and Chyler chat about in-between takes?

DANE: Masks, Covid. I hadn’t seen Chyler in a while, but Ellen I stay in contact with, and just, how are the kids? Kids are good. Small talk. There wasn’t a lot of time in-between takes because of the protocols and how we had to set it up. So, once we got going, it was almost like a runaway train.

DEADLINE: And it was easy to go back into character?

DANE: Yeah. I mean, look, I created Mark Sloan. It was not that difficult for me to get back into character.

DEADLINE: What did you think about Mark and Lexie playing such an important role in giving Meredith a will to live and a reason to fight as she soon thereafter started to breathe on her own?

Gray's Anatomy Season 17: Two returns for the price of one in episode 10

 Gray's Anatomy Season 17: Two returns for the price of one in episode 10 The season 17 of Gray's Anatomy should not be the last (if everything is fine). But since its launch, it has a taste of nostalgia. And for good reason: the medical series has already made a number of characters dead on the screen. Episode 10 will also fill the fans since it contained not one but two very expected comedback. So, what happened? PRBK tells you everything. Attention, this article contains spoilers.

DANE: Well, Mark Sloan and Lexie Grey are embedded in the DNA of that show, and also literally, Lexie and Meredith share the same DNA. So, I think there’s a connectivity there and reminding her that, gone but not forgotten, we’re always around if you need us, and it’s too early for you to stay on the beach.

DEADLINE: And there was something comforting, I’m sure, in you reassuring fans that Mark is OK…

DANE: Sure. Absolutely. You see that everybody’s okay and happy; it allows you to want to come back for something.

DEADLINE:And that Mark also is watching over his daughter.

DANE: Yeah. Whether she’s listening to me or not, you always have somebody looking over you. I lost my father at a very early age, and I feel like he’s watching over me in some capacity.

DEADLINE: When Meredith asked whether Mark and Lexie were together, you said “On your beach, we are”. What do you make of that? Does it mean that they’re happily together in our imagination?

DANE: I didn’t dig too deep into that. I sort of took it as like, not in your imagination but the way you’re seeing it in your subconsciousness, wherever you are right now, whatever state of being you’re existing in, in this coma, fever dream, whatever it is, I guess that’s [Meredith’s] projection of perfection. Mark and Lexie are together forever, and I’m sure Mark and Lexie aren’t too bummed about it either.

DEADLINE: What is your vision of Mark and Lexie, how you think that their story continues in the afterlife?

DANE: Mark would’ve found Lexie. He would’ve found her eventually.

DEADLINE: Since you left Grey’s Anatomy, you did one successful series, The Last Ship, which ran for five seasons, and now you are on a second successful series, Euphoria. Meanwhile, Grey’s Anatomy is still going. How do explain the longevity of that show which continues to be going strong 17 seasons in?

Ellen Pompeo Responds To Angry Fan Upset Over ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Spoilers She Posted

  Ellen Pompeo Responds To Angry Fan Upset Over ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Spoilers She Posted Anger “Grey’s Anatomy” fans at your own risk. Ellen Pompeo found herself on the receiving end of some spicy words after she posted some spoiler-laden content about “Grey’s Anatomy” to her social media shortly after the most recent episode aired. RELATED: Ellen Pompeo Tells ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ The Future Of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Is Still Up In The Air A fan of the long-running medical drama tweeted at her, "Meredith Grey can f[***] off with her spoiler posts. Like give us at least 24 f[***]ing hours! Ughhhhhh yeah @EllenPompeo I’m big mad lol." Pompeo, seemingly not too bothered, quote tweeted the missive, responding, "Cmon bruh ...

DANE: Well, I think there’s a lot of factors but at its core it’s just a great show. People connect with the characters on that show. It seemed to have found a whole new generation of viewership. Shows typically will grow up with a generation, an audience, and eventually that audience will either outgrow that show or move onto something else. But with Grey’s, there’s always been an alchemy in that cast, a dynamic, a chemistry which keeps people showing up. The writing’s good. Krista, Shonda [Rhimes], Betsy [Beers] and now Debbie Allen’s exec producing the show. They’re so good at understanding the tone of that show and finding characters that people will invest in, and what that translates to is Season 17.

DEADLINE: Is there anything you miss about Grey’s?

DANE: Well, I’ve maintained contact with a lot of the cast members. An answer somebody would give you, had they not, would’ve been I missed the people, but I’m still friends with all of them. So, there wasn’t really anything to miss.

DEADLINE: Are you going back into production on Euphoria soon?

DANE: In mid-April. We’re actually started now on Season 2. I think I don’t start shooting for a couple weeks, but we are. I’m sure we’re going to get this out as soon as we can. We’ve set a pretty high bar. I’m very proud of that show, everybody involved is very proud of that show.
