Chyler Leigh to Become Cast Member?

Chyler Leigh, a.k.a. Lexie Grey
Despite appearing for a grand total of about two minutes at the end of Season 3, Chyler Leigh almost instantly became Grey's Anatomy's most hated.

So great is the animosity and concern over the arrival of Lexie Grey that many readers couldn't bear to participate in our Caption Contest involving her.

What's to come of the younger Grey intern in Season 4? We'll have to wait and see.

But here's a little tidbit from the TV Guide insider Michael Ausiello on Grey's Anatomy and Chyler Leigh...

Question: I hear that Mer's sister on Grey's Anatomy (a.k.a. Chyler Leigh) will be made a series regular next season. Seriously?
Ausiello: Nothing official yet, but that's what I'm hearing, too. Speaking of Grey's Anatomy, the title of the season premiere just landed on my lap, and, considering what Shonda Rhimes put us through in that finale, it sounds very promising. It's called, "A Change Is Gonna Come."

Looks like there's plenty more to be seen from Lexie Grey. And what do you think the change that's gonna come refers to?

I must not be very open minded because Derek and Meredith not being a couple just is'nt something I want to see. Like a lot of people I feel in love with this couple from day one and want to see them work through their problems and be happy.


HOLD ON, HOLD ON,der/mer BELONG TOGETHER. This the REASON WE DER/MER FANS watch the show. I can't stand it when someone interfers with their relationship.I hated ADDISION when she arrived. LOVED her when the divorce went thru. Addision was wrong. She punked DER out for a year. A year when he and mer could have started their lives together. Yes, Mer has emotional detachment problems,brought on by Ellis and Thacher.(It is not her fault). Der is the first/only man SHE HAS HAD AN RELATIONSHIP WITH. All this is NEW TO HER.DER will haveto step up to the plate and show her how a relationship REALLY works.( It won't be easy) Since he FINALLY realizes that HE WANTS AND NEEDS Mer.
NOW: If WE fans could get SHONDA to stop screwing around with OUR couple, Maybe,just Maybe there still will be some hope for this show.
Plus I really want Ava to come back for Alex. They are SOo perfect together. And Bailey MUST get more SCREEN time. I just wish Shonda and ABC would stop dragging people off the street to join the cast. There is SOoo MUCH to be done with the original Characters we started out with. There are still a lot of stories to be told with the original cast.
OMG!!! the NEW INTERNS they are a joke. The show is only 1 hour . There is NO ROOM for the NEW INTERNS!!!!.


Sorry you feel that way, Hi! I agree with many things you say in your comment; however, that is not the direction Shonda or the writer's took Meredith and Derek's relationship in season 3. I think they developed Christina's and Burke's relationship to a better level during season 3 than they did Meredith and Derek. I'm ready to move on. There is always room for someone new!


Tk i can not believe you just said what you just said. If mer is not matured for derek, tell me who in that SGH is matured enogh for him, izzie, christina, or worst lexie? they are the only women i see there or even worst callie or bailey? UNBELIEVABLE!!!


Would love to see PD and someone new on the show. I think he would have chemistry with many different types of women (hot is hot, no matter how he plays it). Derek is an established , smart, adult male in the show. Meredith is very immature and in the early stage of her life and they have made her into a sad, dismal type person, a lost soul looking for happiness through othersl. I think Derek deserves to be happy and not have to fight so hard and for so long for a lost cause like Meredith. He is secure in his feelings towards her; however, no matter how he expresses himself to her, she just cannot or isn't willing move in a positive adult direction with him. Don't know too many women who would react to him the way she does when the chemistry is so obviously there. Some people are just not made to be happy. Derek on the other hand wants to be happy and move forward in his life. Looking forward to season 4---season 3 was a disappointment for their relationship.


I don't know about anyone else but Addison was a complete surprise to me when she appeared. It was also obvious that even when Derek stayed with her that it was'nt over between him and Meredith. Everybody knew Lexie was coming it was just a matte rof when. The biggest problem with Lexie is that she is a Grey which seems to always spell trouble for Meredith. If your a 100% MerDer fan the look and the little act of flirting between Derek and Lexie was enough to make you want to kick Chyler Leigh to the curb already. Granted she deserves a chance for people to see what's she is all about. But MerDer fans are getting tired of this constant back and forth relationship of their's when we know it's time to let MerDer be happy like their meant to be. So many people are drawn to that special chemistry that Patrick and Ellen have that is so obvious on screen they just want people to leave MerDer alone and let them be happy.


Who the hell is Thomson? GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! I HATE LEXIE GREY WITH A PASSION! i hated her the minute i saw her talking to derek. Now i heard its not official yet, but she is going to be a regular on the show. FRKKKKKK! that was me freaking out.


Another spoiler just came in: 07/06 - Expect changes to occur in the season premiere as the title is "A Change Is Gonna Come." The premiere will see new interns enter the medical world. One, who is supposed to be named Thomson, helps deliver a baby on the interns' first day on the job. Grey's Anatomy episodes would not be the same without a wacky case. In this episode, the wacky case is that of a young boy bringing his bleeding female raccoon pet to the hospital in the hope a doctor will save her. Source: TV Squad Dempsey is DREAMY i respect your opinion but i think it is going to be a big deal if der and lexie happen.


You brought it up, so i am gonna talk.
Shes part of the cast now, its gonna be like an addison thing, we hated her(addi) so much and then we loved cause shes addison. Now Lexie, its a different thing, people are so freakin' pissed shes coming, "oh, shes so gonna ruin the show" blah blah, mcdreamy and meredith blah blah. I say, if Derek never mentioned anything about the bar whore, well it would still be the same. 1.Its not like anything serious happened, Mcdreamy turned her down. 2. Meredith, was walking in circles, so if Dereks with her half sister, it prob. wouldnt be the worst thing. 3. Derek would still be "breathing" for Meredith, the man spilled his heart out, hes waiting its this thing they do, back in the begining of season 2, Meredith and derek were waiting for eachother, Season 3 Derek waited for her to make her mind up, hense dating thing, then Meredith waited the big long fishing trip. So now its back to Derek. 4).People relax, i mean Burke left Cristina, Addison is gone, Izzie is in love with George, George failed, Bailey is spinning out of control, Alex is in love with a patient, Chief is, still chief, but in love with Adele, the interns are residents, and Meredith is to freakin' invovled with other peoples life to consider her own. If the Lexie comes around, ITS NOT THE WORST THING THAT COULD POSSIBLY HAPPEN!, Seriously contain yourselfs, shut up, and get ready for abunch of maddness season 4, its gonna happen.


I read somewhere that theres going to be a sex & city movei. So i was just thinking a Greys anatomy movie would be SERIOUSLY COOL. i´d go see it as long as Lexie isn´t in it.


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.


Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
