'Grey's' gossip: Is Denny back from the dead?
Somebody grab the defribillator for this heart-stopping piece of gossip: A compelling rumor has surfaced that Grey’s Anatomy is considering whether to bring back Jeffrey Dean Morgan — a.k.a. Denny Duquette — to the show! Touchstone TV, ABC’s sister studio that produces the popular drama, wouldn’t confirm or deny, but the story floating around Hollywood is that creator Shonda Rhimes is trying to keep Morgan in the family now that her new drama about war correspondents — which Morgan was set to star in — was put on the back burner by ABC. Word is that Morgan — along with some other unusual characters from episodes past — will pop up sometime this month in a dream sequence imagined by one of the sexy interns. The rumor seems suspect; I mean, my GOD, the dude’s character died of a heart attack last season! But it wouldn’t be the first time that a TV show resuscitated a popular character (remember Patrick Duffy in Dallas?) And as a rabid fan of Grey’s, I’m all for Morgan’s return — to a point. His presence has gotta make sense, which means if the above scenario isn’t real, he’d have to return as a long lost identical twin (I know, lame) or as an ever-present ghost in Izzie’s life, a la Melina Kanakeredes’ mom in Providence. Come on, readers — pretend you were Shonda. If you made the call, would you bring back Morgan? And if so, how?
