An original Grey's Anatomy castmember, someone we've known since the series' first year, is returning to the show! This character has had a key part in one of Grey's many romance-go-rounds, but this time something has changed.
As it happens, the character in question is coming back with a serious problem that requires personal attention from one of the docs at Seattle Grace.
So who's coming back, and what's the trouble?
Sources reveal to us that Loretta Devine is returning to Grey's Anatomy.
Devine, who has appeared on the show as Adele Webber, Chief Webber's (James Pickens Jr.) woman, since the show's first year in 2005, is set to return to Seattle Grace Mercy West later this year. Why? Because apparently Adele has taken ill and needs medical care. Eek.
Look for Adele's Grey's Anatomy return engagement to air in mid-February. (Hmmm...could this medical treatment also be the situation that sets up a Valentine's Day reunion for the pair?)
Are you excited Loretta is returning?
