After meandering about the future of his character, T.R. Knight appears to finally know his fate: It’s over. Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes and Knight grew plenty tense over the last few months (years?) with Knight and co-star Katherine Heigl publicly musing about their desire to leave the show. Now Knight knows the answer: George, who was last seen flat-lining in the season finale, isn’t coming back.
It all makes sense, given Knight asked in December to be let out of his contract. So the story goes, he was unhappy with not having a storyline, nor seeing much airtime.
