Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: A Funeral Scene?

at . Comments

It's not often that we see behind-the-scenes looks at Grey's Anatomy, given the closed-set nature of the series. But this week, the cast filmed an unusual outdoor scene that appears to be at a cemetery - and we can only assume is Dr. George O'Malley's funeral.

Here's Justin Chambers (Dr. Alex Karev) on the set ...

Justin Chambers was on location as Grey's Anatomy filmed outside.

Now that T.R. Knight has confirmed he is not coming back to the show, and Katherine Heigl clearly is back filming, that would be the most logical explanation for what's going on here as Grey's Anatomy begins filming its sixth season: George being laid to rest.

It would be sad, but at this point, seemingly inevitable. Click to enlarge lots more Grey's Anatomy photos from the set and tell us what you think is going on behind the scenes ...

Like I say, I really don't care about George. I prefer he never return to Grey's anymore because now the show has so many great characters to create great stories. George storyline never interest me anymore.....Shonda has made a correct decision. No more Burke and George. I don't really like this two from the beginning.


George is pretty much the only reason I still watched after Gizzie ended. I can't believe anyone would suggest it was up to him to get airtime for his character. No it is up to the producer and the writers. She is the one who backburnered a beloved important character just so fans would be shocked when he got hit by a bus. That's pretty lame writing. She's also the one who didn't even tell him why she did that. Shonda lied to us. She said she hadn't decided whether to kill George after the finale. Krista said the same thing a month ago. Now it turns out she had decided to kill him back in December. TR said he went to her and she lied to him many times. I believe her. Shee lies to us all the time. Season 5 was pretty lame, LOL. I think most people would agree on that, except for maybe the AI fans who got all they wanted. I know the MerDer fans didn't like it at all and so did many people. The ratings were never lower. The Office, on the other hand, got a raise in ratings. It's probably all those Grey fans who deserted. I'm going to be watching The office next year too. It's a much better show and they actually use all their characetrs without any actors having to go to the reportes to get a story. What a shock!


Actors change their minds all the time. Look at CSI. Sara is coming back, and Grissom might too. Both actors had quit. Shonda has taken that opportunity away from us. Now George can never ever come back. George doesn't have to die for his fans to remember him. You underestimate how special this character is. George has had one bad luck after the other in his life. The last season he had no friends, no romance and no professional success. That's how he died, feeling all alone. Are we suppose to be happy about that? I sepnt five seasons rooting for George to finally make it and get the respect he deserved and finally be happy, and he dies like that. It's not TR's place to demand Shonda respect his character and give him something to do. She paid him so much money and wouldn't use him. That's pretty damn stupid if you ask me. I think the show has been really sucky the last two years and the last was the worst. It really showed me he was who I watched for.


Sorry for this, my message got cut in two.


So TR has to whine publicly and get negative attention to get a story? Are you serious with that? He was classy and diplomatic and try to go to her privately, which is what you should do. You shouldn't have to blackmail or humiliate your boss to write for you? Geez. If you have to do this, then there's a big problem with the producer. Will Ellen and Patrick have to go public to stop being backburnered too? If Shonda had actually written for George and stopped bringing in the million of extras and new characters, George would still be with us. TR could also have visited later on or changed his mind and come back if she hadn't killed him. I hated season 5. It was so dark and depressing. This show lost its heart, and that's because the heart of the show is George. I won't be watching.


I disagree. They could have George go to the army and have other characters bring him up from time to time like they did with Carter on ER. He could still be calling them without us seeing them. George has been through hell and never got a break. He deserved one. Now he


I don't care bout george and I can't wait for season premiere.


I dont understand why people are saying George's death is the worst way of TR leaving. If he's never returning to the show, it would be kinda weird if he was alive and never interacted with or contacted any of the other characters since the 5 interns have been so close to each other since the day one. Plus there are good possibilities that his death will bring some really good storylines for the other characters. Not everyone watch Grey's just to see George being happy on the show, right? I watch Grey's cause all the characters are entertaining. If George's not on the show anymore, maybe he'll be remembered stronger with his death instead of being remembered (or forgotten) as the guy who just randomly joined the army and never came back. There's no doubt George's death is going to be a great loss for every character. and I think it's better than him just walking away like Erica Hahn did. George's death might be good for the character if he's never coming back because death could be the strongest way of disappearing from the show.


I don't think this season gonna be weired w/o george coz we already have less goerge last season and the show was great. In fact I'm more interested for next season w/o him. I do hope they focus on the existing couples like merder, ai, oc and ml more and also less bailey the better.


now that t.r. has spoken up, i'm more understanding. i have always been a george fan, but i have to admit putting him out this season, really did prepare us for this. because even if you want want to say that this was a 'dark and twisty' season, it had the best episodes with stairway to heaven, and izzie's wedding. the cancer storyline isn't unrealistic. people come back from pancreas cancer all the time and those survival rates are like none. this is a tv show and they can have all the miracles they want. i do believe possibly shonda could have treated t.r. unfairly. but i don't think it is all her fault...i think communication could have worked both ways. katherine and shonda got into it in season four when she basically said her storyline sucked, and that she wanted to leave. what she did was stood up for herself, and demanded a storyline or asked to leave GA. so what happened? she got a story line and is staying on greys. i believe if t.r did what katherine did, he'd survive with izzie as well. i'm also curious for your opinion greysaddiction for i've always admired your optimism and the lack of trashing shonda or t.r. so SPEAK UP!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

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.
