#BurkeIsBack: Watch The Sneak Peek Of Isaiah Washington’s Return to “Grey’s Anatomy”
Last month, we told you that Isaiah Washington was going to reprise his role as Dr. Preston Burke on Shonda Rhime’s first hit show “Grey’s Anatomy.” Washington was fired back in 2007 when he called his costar T.R. Knight a fa**ot on set. He used the epithet again in a press room.
Obviously, that’s unacceptable behavior and Washington was deservedly let go. But since that time he’s made several speeches and moves in support of the LGBT community, including his involvement in the independent film Blackbird, which is about a black man coming out in a small, southern town.
And now, after seven years, with Burke’s former love interest, Cristina Yang leaving the show, it makes sense that he would show up again. Judging from the preview, it seems as if he’s going to try to get Cristina back. Fans of the show may remember that Burke essentially left Cristina at the altar during his last episode of the show. As you might assume, it doesn’t appear to be a permanent return, it’s a one episode type of deal that will go down this week Thursday.
