Grey's Anatomy: Sarah Utterback Returns!

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy has been on the air since 2005, and the show has had a revolving door of characters ever since. 

That's what happens when you have a show in a hospital setting, and we now know that a character from the Grey's Anatomy's earlier days will be showing up in the near future. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Sarah Utterback will be reprising her role as Nurse Olivia for one episode later this month.

Utterback was a recurring player for the sudsy ABC drama's first six seasons. If you watch Grey's Anatomy online, you will likely remember Olivia as the woman who gave George syphilis after contracting it from none other than Alex. 

Olivia was fired from the hospital during Grey's Anatomy Season 6 and has not been heard from since.

The awkward thing about all of it is that Jo will be the one who deals with Olivia upon her arrival at the hospital with her son. 

Will Jo learn the story about syphilis, or will there be something more pressing to address? Yeah, we're wondering whether her son could be looking for his father at the hospital.

It would be a soapy twist for sure, but Grey's Anatomy is all about embracing soapy twists these days. 

Jo and Alex are at a good place in their relationship, so was only a matter of time before someone else showed up to disrupt their happiness. 

It should be fun to find out what Olivia's been getting up to since her firing, but we think it's fair to say she will not be returning to the hospital as a nurse.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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."

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.
