After bringing back fan’s most favourite Derek Shephard, Grey’s Anatomy has delivered another blast from the past.

Original series star T.R. Knight returned to the medical drama 12 seasons after his beloved character, George “007” O’Malley, was shockingly killed off.

Continuing the coronavirus-focused 17th season, Meredith saw her friend and former intern classmate in a dream as she continued her fight with COVID-19. As Patrick Dempsey’s Derek Shepherd did before him, George appeared to Meredith during a beach sequence designed to symbolize Meredith’s reunion in death with the people she’s loved and lost. It showed that both characters were surprised to see each other. It was the first of several dream meetings between Meredith and George, in which they strolled along the beach and his death and funeral.

“I was devastated when you died,” Meredith said. “You were all cracking up at my funeral,” George said in response. He spoke of what he misses about being alive, which is “Dancing til you drop, laughing til you cry, food and textures, the crunch of cereal as you eat it out of the box, the feel of clean sheets and good pillow at the end of a long day”. In their final conversation, Meredith told George how much he meant to her. “You changed my life George,” she said, which was soon followed by another, a reunion at the beach of four of Grey’s original characters: Meredith, George, Richard and Bailey.

Dempsey and Knight were original Grey’s Anatomy cast members alongside Ellen Pompeo whose characters were fan favourites. Knight left in Season 5 whereas, Dempsey departed in Season 11.
