Last night, Michael Ausiello added this little spoiler to his website:

Question: What the heck about Brooke Smith leaving on Grey’s Anatomy? And her last episode is this Thursday? And Hahn’s final scene consists of her leaving work for the day? Insanity. — Keith
Ausiello:
I’m going to give Shonda Rhimes the benefit of the doubt and assume she’s intentionally leaving Hahn’s exit ambiguous and, therefore, open to interpretation. Sort of like the Sopranos finale. Did Hahn get shot to death on the way to the parking garage? Did she pull a Thelma & Louise and drive her car off a cliff? Did the hospital’s automatic doors malfunction and decapitate her? Did she return to Weeds? The possibilities are endless. Personally, I’m leaning toward the Thelma & Louise scenario. According to one of my Grey’s moles, Callie and Erica have a relationship-severing blowout in tomorrow’s episode that starts with an argument over whether Izzie paid a big enough price for her role in Denny-gate, and ends with Callie realizing she doesn’t love girls as much as Erica does. Hey, people have killed themselves over less.

The news just keep getting worse! Does this call for a boycott of the show, after Brooke leaves?

P.S. Any news that you might have heard of Sara Ramirez also leaving the show are said to be completely untrue…

Beware Callica fans! If you read this post, you will be heavily disappointed!!

 

Brooke Smith has been FIRED!
Nope, this isn’t a nightmare, and the shocks keep on coming, so brace yourselves… On Monday, Michael Ausiello posted this interview with Brooke Smith:

AUSIELLO: What the hell happened?!
BROOKE SMITH:
I was very excited when they told me that Erica and Callie were going to have this relationship. And I really hoped we were going to show what happens when two women fall in love and that they were going to treat it like any heterosexual couple on TV. And so I was surprised and disappointed when they just suddenly told me that they couldn’t write for my character anymore.

That’s all they said?
Yes. Frankly, it was you that warned me this might happen on the red carpet back in July. You said [sometimes networks get cold feet] with gay relationships. And I was so naive. I’m like, “It’s 2008.” But I’m starting to realize that not everyone feels the way I do.

Did you get the feeling that the story was making people nervous?
No. At work I had no sense of it. And more fans seemed to like it than not. I don’t think I’m ever going to know [why this really happened].

When did you find out?
I found out in mid-September soon after shooting the monologue that aired last week where Erica has the revelation that she’s gay. They even came down and told me it was a great scene — one of the best they ever shot on the show. So I was really, really shocked. I was floored when they told me [I was being let go]. It was the last thing I expected. In fact, when they told me I asked, “When is this happening?” And they said, “The [next episode] is your last,” which is the one that airs this Thursday. So it was very sudden.

Wait a second – your last episode is this Thursday?
Yes.

How are you written out?
I’m not written out. My final scene is just me heading to my car.
I honestly don’t know what happens in the next episode. I heard not much. [Quick sidebar: This sheds new light on Mary McDonnell’s arrival next week as a top cardiac doc. And if you’re thirsting for some irony, there’s this: Melissa George confirms that her incoming character will be bisexual.]

Who broke the news to you?
Shonda.

I’m hearing that this wasn’t her decision, but rather ABC’s.
You know, I have to tell you, I got that feeling. I don’t know for sure, but it definitely seemed like [Shonda’s] hands were tied. That was just my gut.

Did she seem upset?
She did seem upset. I wasn’t having a very good week that week. I was like, “Oh, God, what is it with this business?!” And she said, “No, no, no. You are such a great actress. We love you.” It seemed like some decision came down from above. It didn’t feel like it was her.

What was Sara Ramirez’s [Callie] reaction?
She was shocked. I’m the one who told her. It took her a few days to get back to me because she was surprised. It was surprising to everybody.

Were you happy with the direction the story line was taking?
You know, I was starting to get there, yeah. I was personally a little impatient with the gay panic, but it was more Callie’s thing anyway. I think Dr. Hahn was sort of figuring it out.

What did you think about Callie going to Mark to get pointers on exploring the “undiscovered country”?
It was a little icky. If you’re a woman, don’t you know how to please yourself? But they seemed to be okay with that one.

How are you doing with all this?
It’s actually never happened to me before. But I never had a moment where I thought I did something wrong. I was just really surprised. I just moved my entire family to L.A., so it was kind of like, “What?” But for some reason I feel like I’m fine. I feel like I’m going to be okay.

Ausiello says, “this was not Shonda Rhimes’ decision but rather an order that came down from the network. According to one Grey’s source, the suits “had issues” with both the explicit direction Callica was taking (think: undiscovered country, south of the border, etc.) and, more importantly, with the Hahn character in general.”

Yesterday night, Shonda Rhimes released this statement: “Brooke Smith was obviously not fired for playing a lesbian. Clearly it’s not an issue as we have a lesbian character on the show – Calliope Torres. Sara Ramirez is an incredible comedic and dramatic actress and we wanted to be able to play up her magic. Unfortunately, we did not find that the magic and chemistry with Brooke’s character would sustain in the long run. The impact of the Callie/Erica relationship will be felt and played out in a story for Callie. I believe it belittles the relationship to simply replace Erica with ‘another lesbian.’ If you’ll remember, Cristina mourned the loss of Burke for a full season.”

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, to all the Callica fans out there, send ABC a piece of your mind by clicking here (scroll all the way down for the form). They need to know how much of a let down this is.

 

WHAT’S MORE, Melissa Geroge’s role has been altered. According to Kristin Dos Santos, “Melissa came on to the show as a bisexual character and love interest for Callie (Sara Ramirez), but a reliable insider tells me, ‘They changed the script, and now she isn’t. She starts off flirting with Callie but it never goes anywhere.’ ”

 

Don’t forget to write in to ABC everyone!

Callica. One bed. Two ugly nightgowns.

That’s how that latest Grey’s Anatomy started off.

Callie calls on Mark, again, to check out her sexual orientation.

And finds out that it’s just as good with him.

But shouldn’t there be a difference?

Honesty is the best policy, right?

At the end of the day, Mark is good for more than just sex.

Yiii! This episode started right off with a scene Callica fans everywhere had been waiting for!

But (and why must there always be a but?) we quickly learn that Callie didn’t have such a great time.

Erica, on the other hand, had a whole lot of fun.

So Callie goes to none other than Mark for a little advice.

And then tells Erica that she can’t do it. Ouch!

Next comes the scene that angered many Callica fans out there: Callie asking Mark (a MAN) to show her how it’s done.

Four words: Take off your pants. 😀

Next week, Callie tests a theory.

Brave New World

In this fourth (but really third) episode of Grey’s Anatomy’s fifth season, there was promise of the first official Callica date. And boy, oh boy, did they deliver!

It all started with Erica helping Callie move to the new apartment, and asking her on a date at the same time.

Callie is wayyy nervous about the date, and might not want to go through with it.

So she seeks advice from Bailey. Why? We might never know!

Next comes a very short and sweet scene:

Bailey to the rescue!

Again, they save the best scene for last.. The long-awaited date!

Next week, expect to see Callie ask Mark for help.
