Lexie Grey has left the building. Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes promised the season finale would leave fans upset and she wasn’t kidding—but probably not in the way she expected. The season eight ender, which aired last night, created mass fan uproar when it was revealed Seattle Grace’s fan favorite doctor, Lexie (played by Not Another Teen Movie star Chyler Leigh), succumbed to the injuries she sustained in the tragic plane crash that ended the previous episode. Her death is especially heartbreaking because of all that was left unresolved with the character, including her romance with hotshot doc, Mark Sloan (Eric Dane), that appeared to be on the mend after two rocky seasons. Rhimes immediately took to Twitter to do damage control after being bombarded with angry messages from shocked viewers. “I love Chyler and I love the character of Lexie Grey. She was an important member of my Grey’s family,” Rhimes said in a 300+ word tweet via twitlonger. “We had a lot of thoughtful discussion about it and ultimately we both decided this was the right time for her character’s journey to end.” The finale also saw the less-shocking departure of Kim Raver’s Teddy who was fired from the hospital after three seasons on the show. Leigh has remained quiet about her untimely exit. ~Kyle Sharp
