Grey's Anatomy

Some of your favorite ABC shows might look a little different in the months to come:

Grey’s Anatomy: Do the producers have a thing against blondes? Or sexually ambiguous blondes? Although there was possibility Sadie Harris would be sticking around Seattle Grace for a while, ‘s stint on the show has now ended. The actress - who was originally contracted for at least four episodes - wound up playing intern for a total of eight.

Despite George’s claim that it was her decision to leave the show, sources tell EW that the parting was fairly mutual. (“Melissa’s arc came to a natural end,” reports an insider.) Fortunately for viewers, Sadie’s exit won’t be as random as Erica Hahn’s. “It won’t be a big send-off, but it’s really cool what they do,” George reports.

Is Grey’s Anatomy Abandoning Its Gay Storylines?

Grey's Anatomy's Callie and Erica

It looks like Dr. Hahn won’t be seeing much more than leaves on after this week. Despite the buildup to Erica’s moment of clarity with Callie last Thursday, actress Brooke Smith has been let go from the show. This shocking news comes just as Hahn’s relationship with Dr. Torres was reaching a new level.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Smith revealed that the announcement - delivered by Shonda Rhimes herself - was made last month. Ironically, Brooke was informed of her departure right after the “leaves” episode was filmed. Unfortunately, the reasoning being the casting decision has been raising a lot of speculation.
