Grey's Anatomy Welcomes Two New Arrivals to Limbo Beach
When the late Lexie Grey visited Grey’s Anatomy‘s Limbo Beach this Thursday night, it turned out she was not exactly alone.
Shortly after Lexie (played by former cast member Chyler Leigh) greeted big sis Mer, who has been dilly-dallying in the idyllic mindscape whilst battling a case of COVID-19 back at Grey+Sloan, the two were joined by dearly departed Mark Sloan.
It was suggested that Lexie and Mark were “back together” in the afterlife. Or something. Mark also shared how, from the great beyond, he has tried his darndest to give counsel to Callie and Arizona, and their daughter Sofia.
Dane first joined Grey’s midway through Season 2, as a blast from Derek and Addison’s past (given that he was with whom the latter had had an affair). Years later, Mark was in the same small-plane crash that killed Lexie, though he would not succumb to his injuries until two episodes later (as part of the Season 9 premiere).
Dane went on to front the TNT action-drama The Last Ship for five seasons, as Captain Tom Chandler, and co-star on HBO’s Euphoria.
Lexie and Mark’s arrival on “Limbo Beach” continues a nostalgia-filled theme for Season 17, ever since Meredith contracted COVID and was put on a ventilator; during this time, the show’s title character has been visited by the likes of late husband Derek (played by original cast member Patrick Dempsey), late BFF George (original cast member T.R. Knight), and an ill-fated DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti).
'Grey's Anatomy' Fans React to Meredith's Reunion With Lexie and Mark on the Beach!
The heartstring-tugging reunion parade continues on Grey's Anatomy. On Thursday's new episode, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) was reunited with her late sister, Lexie (Chyler Leigh), in her mystical beach limbo universe.
The pair share a heartfelt conversation about life and nature, and whether or not Meredith has any actual desire to leave her dream world -- all questions that could have big implications for the future of the series.
Not long after, the pair are surprised by the sudden appearance of Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) -- Lexie's love who died early on in season 9. Through their shared dialogue, it's strongly implied Meredith's beach is a sort of afterlife waiting room.
Leigh's reappearance in the Grey's universe comes nine seasons after her character was tragically killed as a result of the plane crash in the dramatic season 8 finale -- the same crash that left Mark on life support and resulted in his death.
Meredith has been in her idyllic "safe place" for some time while on a ventilator battling COVID-19, and has already been reunited with several past Grey's stars.
Earlier this season, fans were shocked when she reconnected with Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) -- who died in a fatal car accident in season 11 -- and bid farewell to Dr. Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) before he died on the operating table in the show's recent midseason premiere.
Needless to say, the emotional reunion struck a chord with fans, who took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Bless the Harts will not be back for a third season.
Fox has canceled the animated comedy from creator Emily Spivey. The series, a co-production between Disney's 20th Television and Fox Entertainment, will wrap its second and final season in May on the independent broadcast network.
The adult animated comedy featuring a voice cast that includes Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jillian Bell, Ike Barinholtz and Kumail Nanjiani, has been a lackluster performer in its second season as part of Fox's Sunday night block. Its most recent original episode drew 56,000 total same-day viewers, a series low.
The cancellation comes as animated comedies typically take longer to produce, with creatives needing to know sooner in order to make a fall schedule. Fox, meanwhile, continues to build up its animated slate with an eye on full ownership of its programming. In addition to Disney-owned The Simpsons, Family Guy and Bob's Burgers, Fox has The Great North (a co-production with 20th), Housebroken (fully owned internally) and the recently picked up Dan Harmon series launching in 2022.
Fox's animation push comes after the broadcast network purchased animation studio Bento Box, best known for Bob's Burgers, in a bid to own its animated offerings. In success, animated comedies can become cash cows for networks and their owners with lucrative merchandising lines. Bob's, Duncanville, The Great North, Family Guy and The Simpsons have all been renewed for the 2021-22 broadcast season.
