Saying goodbye is never easy, but Shonda Rhimes is trying to soften the blow. In preparation for the departure of Sandra Oh's beloved character, Dr. Christina Yang, Shonda is bringing back Isaiah Washington for one episode in May.

The actor, who played Oh's longtime love interest Dr. Preston Burke, will allow for the “full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang,” according to Shonda.

“It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should,” Rhimes added. “Burke is vital to that journey.”

Stock up on tissues now, because we're sure that Isaiah's episode is bound to be a tear jerker. Will you be tuning in? Let us know in the comments.
