Exclusive: 'Grey's Anatomy' readmits Ryan Devlin

mandy-mooreImage Credit: Danny Feld/ABCFurther proof that getting dropped from CBS’ stinky sitcom $#*! My Dad Says was the best thing to happen to Ryan Devlin: The returning Cougar Town actor is headed back to Grey’s Anatomy for a multi-episode November sweeps arc, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Devlin—who guest-starred in May’s harrowing two-part Grey’s finale as the husband of Mandy Moore’s ailing character—will reappear in this season’s sixth and seventh episodes (slated to air on Oct. 28 and Nov. 4). Moore is also making tracks back to Seattle Grace, although it’s unclear whether she’ll be in one or two episodes.

What brings the couple back to the scene of the crime? That also remains unclear. Got a theory? Hit the comments!

    I guess she’s gonna die. Sad.

    • pop

      she’ll die and Bailey will have a breakdown.

    • PooiGirl

      That was what I thought. But I don’t want that :(

  • oh no

    I really hope they don’t kill Mandy/Mary.

    • Barely Manilow

      Oh, Mandy, you came and you gave without taking, but they sent you away.

      • Cindy S.

        Very nice. Cheesily so, I might add (as she pauses to swoon…)

  • Dominique

    Geez, here I thought someone big was returning, lol. Although I think it’s great that the show is givig some continuation to patients who’ve once been admitted there. Especially those who were admitted at SGH during the shooting.

    • Emma

      I agree, cause sometimes we just see a patient for one-episode length of their treatment (a couple days) and even though at the end they still have their illness or whatever, and most people generally keep the same doctor, they just like disappear. But that happens on all medical shows, not just Grey’s.

    • Betsy

      also agree. I am dying to know how Clara is doing with her new limbs, and what happened when her mom got there. (christina called ceviche, from this year’s season premiere)

      • RJ

        Yeah, I have wondered about her as well.

    • pop

      i want to see the guy who they attached the arm to his stomach return. that episode ended so abrup

    • EJ

      You either never see or hear about them again, or they’re on forever (remember Denny?)

    • lorna

      STFU I love Mandy!!

  • Mayra Cansigno

    he is cute

  • Rachel

    …..I’m fairly sure I would choose a different hospital after something like that. Just sayin’.

    • Ana

      Haha, I agree! Though, maybe she feels there’s a bond with Dr Bailey (due to what happened) and only wants to be treated by her.

    • Another Emma

      I’m glad someone else thinks what I thought the moment I read Mandy Moore was coming back. Mind you, I liked the way she played her role, but how realistic is it that someone would go back to the hospital where they had such a traumatic experience? It is hard enough for the doctors to cope with the trauma of the shooting having to work daily where it happened, why on earth would a patient, who can choose to go and be treated somewhere else return?

      • Snsetblaze

        Well if she’s brought in by ambulance, she probably does not have a choice of the hospital (especiall if unconscious).

  • operaj

    And I thought it was going to be Denny returning, again..

    • justjack

      OK, that’s not funny! Not even as a joke.

      • lottemack

        really? i thought it was pretty funny. as a joke.

  • Melissa

    I thought it would be some one much more interesting than this!

  • Alex

    For a short second there I thought/hoped it was Isaiah Washington. Can’t help it.

    • martina

      OOOOOH! You read my mind! That’s the ONLY thing that would bring back Grey’s.

      • lottemack

        … cept he’s a douchebag and a homophobe…

    • Diane

      Have you seen him in the Toyota commercial? I’m glad that he’s getting work again but sad that he’s doing commercials…

      • G. D.

        Hah! That’s not him!

  • Nora

    I thought Izzie was coming back! C’mon!!

  • Syl

    That makes me and you both, Alex.
    Uhm, how is this ‘exclusive’ news, again?

  • Mothra

    Two words: Law suit. Oh, wait, that’s one… LAWSUIT.

    • Maggie May

      …and they lose the lawsuit, get pi$$ed, and bring a gun…. oh – right — that’s already been done

      • lottemack

        hehe. i chuckled.

  • Diva

    I wish Mandy would become a cast member. Maybe not to this show since there is already a ton of people but this girl needs a show

    • Jane


    • lorna

      They can add Mandy, get rid of April and Teddy. Would be awesome.

      • KarlHall

        Whataaaa? I love Teddy! Don’t care for April (who does?) but Kim Raver rocks!

  • Franny

    He’s super cute — can’t wait to watch it!

  • tvgirl48

    I hope it’s not for something awful like Mandy’s character’s death or a lawsuit or something crazy. After the shooting episode, it’s time to have some good times and a return to some fun. The show doesn’t have to be all light-hearted, but I wish we could go back to the days of 50% laughs and 50% tears episodes.

  • Amanda

    I hope they just make more episodes then last season’s cause it was like 1 week was new and the next week was old for the whole season!!!!
