Ellen Pompeo has taken a trip down her memory lane, sharing a GIF of her Grey’s Anatomy character, whose name is Meredith talking to Katherine Heigl’s character, whose name is Izzie in the early seasons of the show.
The 51 years old took to Twitter on November 19, ahead of the latest episode, posting a graphic image of Izzie telling Meredith, “Dude, she went all cage fight on you.” She captioned the post, “Hey it is Grey’s day!!!” and the fans think she is sending a subtle message about her coming back onto our screens.
“COMEBACK IZZIE STEVENS,” one of the fans replied, while another asked, “Is this a hint that Izzie is coming back?” Ellen’s tweet came three days after the former castmate Isaiah Washington, 57, reignited his longtime feud with Katherine, more than a decade after being fired from the show.
The actor portrayed the role of Preston Burke on the ABC medical series and was booted in the year 2006 after using a homophobic slur directed at his co-star T.R.

Knight took to Twitter on November 16, dubbing Katherine “the first Karen” after she spoke out loud in the wake of his firing. He wrote that this woman once proclaimed that he should ‘never’ be allowed to speak publicly again.
She criticized Isaiah back in 2007 and said that the world agreed with her proclamation back then and protested for her job and her head in 65 languages. She wishes she was on Twitter in the year 2007 because she will never stop exercising her free speech.
“I’m going, being honest right now; he needs to not to speak in public. Period,” she said. “I am sorry, that did not need to be told; I’m not okay with it.
I feel like this is something that should be very much in-house that we need to deal with… T.R. is my best friend. I will throw down for that kid.” Drama aside, she has also been in the news as fans of Grey’s theorize that she is set to return to the medical drama this season.
It would not make her the first O.G. cast member to return back to the show.
