Grey's Anatomy returns on 9/27/2012, and when we left the medical soap drama, Lexie had died in the plane crash, while McSteamy aka Dr. Mark Sloan and Arizona's lives hang in the balance. Eric Dane who plays Dr. Sloan has announced his departure from Grey's Anatomy over the summer, leading to heavy speculation that one big spoiler this upcoming season is that his character perishes as a result of his injuries he incurred from the plane crash. But, the first episode is a flash forward (taking place months after the tragedy) and then the second episode is a flashback to the crash site, so McSteamy's death could occur in either scenario. Dr. Sloan's death would be fitting, in that he could join his true love, Lexie in Seattle Grace heaven!
Which doctors will stay at Seattle Grace or leave for other hospitals in faraway cities?
Stay tuned for the thrilling Season 9 Grey's Anatomy premiere tomorrow night!
Yes, Dr. Mark Sloan aka McSteamy is dead as he was taken off of life support after being in a coma for 30 days.
And sadly, Arizona had to have her left leg amputated by her wife, Dr. Callie Torres!
