Why Callie Torres' Exit From Grey's Anatomy Felt So Wrong!
Would you believe Shonda didn't even know?!
Why Callie Torres' Exit From Grey's Anatomy Felt SO Wrong
Grey's Anatomy has lost quite a few brilliant stars and characters throughout the years. One that we simply cannot forget is Callie Torres' (Sara Ramirez) departure at the end of Grey's Anatomy Season 13. Callie's exit felt incomplete and unsatisfying, especially when you compare them to Cristina Yang's (Sandra Oh) departure in Grey's Anatomy Season 10 and Derek Shepherd's (Patrick Dempsey) departure in Season 11.
And then an article by Buzzfeed had us questioning everything! Turns out, showrunner Shonda Rhimes didn't even know that Sara Ramirez was leaving Grey's Anatomy until after they finished the Season 10 finale, so what we saw wasn't even supposed to be Callie's actual send-off!
YUP. Shonda claims that she only found out about Sara's departure a few days before the public did!
In an interview with Us Magazine, Shonda said, "I had a different plan going and when Sara came in and said, 'I really need to take this break,' I was lucky that we'd shot the end of the season with her going to New York."
WOW. No wonder Callie's departure felt so lackluster! It wasn't even her time to go! But, we should have known. Callie's exit would have definitely been more badass! Don't you agree?
Does this mean that Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) Will Return To Grey's Anatomy?
Because Callie storyline clearly isn't finished yet, we are secretly hoping that this means she will return to Grey's Anatomy sometime in the future. Grey's Anatomy Season 14, perhaps?
While there is no official word of Sara's return to Grey's Anatomy yet, Jessica Capshaw, who plays Callie's ex-wife Arizona Robbins, mentioned that anything is possible when it comes to Calzona.
Suddenly, things are looking up!
