Shonda Rhimes and his writers team is trying to salvage the show by bringing Addison Montgomery back to Grey´s Anatomy to save Archer´s life.
But the show is still suffering what I like to call the Allymcbealization, a great and succesful show that misses every single season 5 call and ends up being atrocious. Grey´s Anatomy is still a good show, but way down from an A show to a C show.
Seattle Grace is about to lose another doctor.
Grey’s Anatomy star T.R. Knight, who has played lovable intern George O’Malley since the show’s debut, has asked producers to write him off the hit medical drama.
While details of his exit have yet to be ironed out, a source close to the situation says that it seems likely Knight’s request will be granted and he will be released from his contract.
Why does Knight, who remains a fan favorite, want to leave?
“Have you seen the show lately?” says People Magazine´s source. Knight has received little screen time this season, with the show focusing on controversial storylines like the romance between Katherine Heigl’s Izzie and her long-dead lover, Denny.
“It’s time to move on,” says the source. “It just feels like this is the right time to go.”
The writers are in a crossroad now:
Should George O´Malley die? Should T.R. Knight character at Grey´s Anatomy pursue another professional choice? Should O´Malley be written off with no further explanation? Let´s see…
Done it, done it, done it… All of the above have already been done by Grey´s Anatomy writers, remember Isaiah Washington, Doctor Preston Burke who was sent off after a homofobic remark about T.R. Knight, and he left Christina Yang at the altar.
Then, Erica Hahn, played by Brooke Smith was sent off with no further explanation after a lesbian relationship with Callie Torres.
Yet again, Kate Walsh pursuing a new career opportunity and creating spinoff Private Practice around the life of Addison Montgomery and her new coworkers. Now it´s Addison to the rescue as Grey´s Anatomy downspiral keeps on going.
Finally, Izzie Stevens, Katherine Heigl´s role, after the whole I see dead people fiasco, turned from a fan favourite into one of the most annoying characters in Television. There´s no other way for her than to the grave.
So, that limits writers choices for T.R. Knight character.
What do you think will happen to George O´Malley at the end of season 5 of Grey´s Anatomy?
I´m guessing some family issues that make him move away.
