Another Grey's Anatomy Rumor Centers Around Isaiah Washington

at . Comments

Any time Grey's Anatomy spoilers are referenced, you have to take them with a grain of salt. The term is practically a misnomer, given how shrouded in secrecy the program is.

But a TV Guide insider is revealing a possible (but we would have to say unlikely) rumor that we nonetheless thought would be of interest. The magazine's Michael Ausiello writes:

Washington & Rhimes
"Although I don't believe for a second that Shonda Rhimes would actually do this, the chatter about a possible Burke death is getting louder with each passing day. A Grey's source, however, says it's not true and that Isaiah Washington's job is safe â€" at least for now.

Speaking of which, did you all catch the special Grey's Anatomy-centric Oprah two weeks ago? And if so, how uncomfortable was O's little powwow with Washington, Patrick Dempsey and T.R. Knight? I haven't witnessed such a forced reconciliation since the late '90s when Cybill Shepherd and Christine Baranski went on Entertainment Tonight to proclaim that everything was hunky-dory on the Cybill set."

We personally don't believe Dr. Burke is going anywhere, especially since he has received the full backing of Shonda Rhimes publicly and his character is as central to the show as ever before.

As far as Ausiello's take on the Oprah visit, it's hard to say whether they were uncomfortable or not, as interviews are not scripted and don't often catch people at their best. We thought they looked fine.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
