Brooke Smith Booted from Grey's Anatomy

Say What? Dr. Hahn Takes Leave From Grey's Anatomy


Yeah, I know, we were just talking about Grey's Anatomy. But hold on tight, cause this story is crazy.

You know Erica Hahn? Hahn, Callie's confidant and lover, who came in to whip the cardiac surgery department into shape after Preston Burke's departure? Well . . . she's off the show, effective this week.

Brooke Smith told Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello that her character doesn't really get much closure — "My final scene is just me heading to my car." She said Shonda Rhimes seemed upset about the decision, almost like "some decision came down from above." She'd only gotten compliments for the work she was doing, she said.

I'll admit the Hahn/Callie storyline wasn't my favorite, but I think Smith is great and had rooted for her to join the show. This all seems rather fishy to me, somehow, though it certainly sheds new light on Grey's adding both a new bisexual character and a new heart surgeon, no?

Update: Melissa George's character, Sadie, might not be bisexual now, either.
