Rhimes Reveals Failed Plans for T.R. Knight’s Final Hours on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Jul 27, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Shonda Rhimes was hoping to show viewers the final hours of T.R. Knight’s character, George, on "Grey’s Anatomy" in the show’s season opener, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Creator and showrunner Rhimes said Knight’s character will die in the season opener, but she intended to show George’s final hours leading up to his fatal accident.

Knight, however, will no longer return to the series and declined to make an appearance in the upcoming sixth season.

  1. Is this is the homophobic creator trying to save her own ass?

  2. Knight was wise to leave “Grey’s.
    It’s a show on the decline, and Rhimes’ shortcomings as a writer are astounding.

  3. Grey’s really lost me at the end of the season, which is a shame, since it did start to rebound mid-season as I recall. For those who thought the finale was powerful, more power to them, I found it nearly unwatchable. The Denny character ruined the show for me, never should have brought him back. Much as I love Sandra Oh, it’s not enough reason to watch anymore, I deleted the season pass.

  4. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
