“In my early finale plans, once I knew Chyler [Leigh] was leaving the show, Lexie wasn’t originally even on the plane. She was going to die back at the hospital by doing something as simple as slipping and hitting her head. She would have been dying over at Seattle Grace while other people were dying in the woods, which wasn’t my favorite plan. She would have died without Mark at her side. Without the chance to say goodbye to him. Without the chance to hear that he loved her. I wanted them together when she left us.”
“And he and Lexie get to be together in a way. Their love remains true.”
one of the absolute saddest parts in the entire episode.
MARK: Sorry I’m late.top twenty mark & lexie scenes: 3. 5.21, no good at saying sorry (one more chance).
LEXIE: Uh.. Dad, this is, um, Mark Sloan. Dr. Mark Sloan. He—He’s my, uh—
LEXIE: No, no. He—He’s my… He’s… Mark.
MARK: Nice to meet you, Mr. Grey. So nice to meet you.
