“Grey’s Anatomy” fans were expecting Thursday’s episode to be a tearjerker and it resulted in even more emotions than they anticipated.
Last week, viewers were stunned when the teaser for the April 1 episode showed Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) reuniting with her late half-sister Lexie (Chyler Leigh) in a dream sequence on a beach.
Fans of the medical drama series were sent into a frenzy following the airing of Thursday’s episode, as it also brought back another fan-favorite character who was previously killed off: Lexie’s love Dr. Mark “McSteamy” Sloan, played by Eric Dane.
The reunion took place at the same location where Meredith formerly ran into her late husband on the series, Dr. Derek Shepherd, played by Patrick Dempsey

Viewers already anticipated that there will be some disappointments next week, however, if the show doesn’t show Lexie and Sloan once more.
Leigh’s return comes after nine seasons since her character was killed in a plane crash, which was featured in the Season 8 finale. Leigh joined the show from 2007 to 2012, first as a guest star before becoming a full-time character. Sloan also died following the plane crash.
