At this point in time, anyone who is a “Grey’s Anatomy” fan knows that the writing is on the wall when it comes to Dr. Mark Sloan. Eric Dane is leaving the show after a couple of episodes this coming season, and there are only a couple of ways that his character can be written out — he is either going to die as a result of his injuries in the plane crash, or find a way to move on with his life elsewhere.
Regardless of how he meets his end, we do have some more assurances now that fans are going to appreciate the way the show handles him. Speaking to E! News, here is what Chandra Wilson had to say on the subject:
“I really appreciate the way that we have taken care of him in the beginning of the season. I think it’s something that Grey’s fans will really appreciate. We get to stroke him a lot in the beginning of our season.”
Hopefully these comments mean that we are not going to have another Lexie situation on our hands where the rug is more or less pulled out from under us — even though we knew going into the season finale that someone was probably going to die, we did not know it would be her — and considering that she and Mark had yet to really express their feelings, it made for one of the most painful moments of the show’s entire run.
How do you think that Dane is going to leave the show — and is there really a good way for us to say goodbye to this character? If you want to check out our recent debate as to how Mark should leave the show, all you have to do is visit the link here.
