'Grey's Anatomy' Season 17 Episode 4 Preview: Will Lexie visit Meredith? Here's why we need to see her little sister
'Grey's Anatomy' is a delight for the feels, isn't it?
While Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) considered herself dark and twisty, her little sister Lexie (Chyler Leigh) was just the opposite, well, on the surface. She was a ray of sunshine until Mark Sloane (Eric Dane) entered her life and she got sucked into a chaotic and romantic firestorm. Mark's life was far from easy, he had slept with Derek Shepherd's (Patrick Dempsey) wife Addison (Kate Walsh), which lead to their breakup and Derek was in love with Meredith. And you thought you had problems in your love life.
And then it all ended in a terrible plane crash at the end of Season 8. Lexie was buried under a part of the plane and the last thing she says is to Mark, that she loves him. Mark dies as well. 'Grey's Anatomy' is a delight for the feels, isn't it?
It has been over nine years since Lexie left the show and the call to get her back has never been greater. In Season 17, Meredith is suffering from Covid-19 and in her dream-state, she sees her husband Derek (who also died in Season 11). Patrick Dempsey's return came as a surprise to everyone and the promos for next week promise another visit. Another person from Meredith's past is going to return and fans are praying hard that it is Lexie.
After several glitches and issues, Lexie and Meredith began to share a warm, sisterly relationship, with the two of them standing up for each other all the time. Every death has left a dent in the show, but Lexie's exit is something that fans still have not recovered from. It's about time we see Meredith address her little sister again.
The synopsis for the next episode doesn't promise much, but here's hoping anyway: "Owen faces a medical diagnosis that challenges more than he imagined; Koracick begins to go stir crazy; Maggie gets a not-so-subtle glimpse into Winston's background."
'Grey's Anatomy' is back after a two-week break and we're eager to know what's in store for Meredith in her limbo-like state. Some fans think that George (TR Knight) might return too, but, you never know. Just don't let it be Ellis Grey or Thatcher.
'Grey's Anatomy' airs on Thursdays, ABC at 9 pm.
