Leah’s back! Dr. Murphy returns to Grey Sloan Memorial on the Oct. 27 episode of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and it’s incredibly awkward — for everyone. Click to WATCH!
The news of Leah Murphy’s (Tessa Ferrer) return takes everyone by surprise. The last time anyone saw her, she had gotten fired by Dr. Webber (James Pickens Jr.) in her second year of her residency. “Can Webber really rehire her?” Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) asks her coworkers, including Alex (Justin Chambers), in the cafeteria. “I mean, I am on the board.”
Leah brings back a load of drama with her. Before she left two years ago, Leah had hooked up with both Alex and Arizona!
At another table, Stephanie (Jerrika Hinton) and Jo (Camilla Luddington) explain to DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) why Leah got fired. “She didn’t fight hard enough to get in the OR, or study, or prepare,” Stephanie says. “She drilled through her patient’s leg, all the way down to the table… Did I also mention she almost brought the hospital down with harassment lawsuits and complaints against attendings because she was sleeping with attendings?”
Leave it to Stephanie to dish out the truth! DeLuca tries to defend Leah’s actions since he did sleep with an attending, too. Stephanie reveals to him that Leah slept with both Arizona and Alex. DeLuca is shocked. Justin doesn’t like to be reminded about Alex and Leah’s tryst.
“It all screwed with her head so Webber asked her to leave,” Stephanie continues. “It just goes to show, don’t crap where you eat.” To make things even more awkward, Leah overhears everything Stephanie just said. Leah takes her tray and plops it down at the table with Stephanie, DeLuca and Jo. Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
