Controversial star returns to 'Grey's Anatomy' Published: May 2, 2014

ABC made a very interesting scheduling choice this week, opting to re-air Isaiah Washington's final "Grey's Anatomy" episode, the Season 3 finale, before his much buzzed-about return episode aired, according to Yahoo TV.

It helped viewers re-live and remember the horribly sad end to one of the show's original romances, and when Burke called off their wedding moments before Cristina was set to walk down the aisle, we felt her pain all over again.

But it also paved the way for the kind of Isaiah Washington return that should never happen. Were they replaying their end as a couple to pull heartstrings before some grand romantic reunion?
