As if the drama at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital wasn’t already overflowing, there’s a former doctor making their way back through the facility’s doors. Dr. Leah Murphy (played by Tessa Ferrer) from Arizona’s past is expected to show up later this season.
For those who can’t seem to keep up with past hookups, Murphy was in both seasons 9 and 10 having flings with Arizona and Alex, but the real relationship here rested with Arizona. The two were basically a couple until the pediatric doctor decided to reconcile with her wife. But now Callie is back in New York, leaving Murphy likely to rekindle a romance with her ex. Because what else do these doctors have to do during the day but hash out old relationship drama and focus on sexual tension?
The show’s creator Shonda Rhimes previously suggested that a romance might be coming Arizona’s way, and our money is on these two hooking back up. “We’re absolutely going to see it,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “I’m very excited to introduce a love interest for her, and to get to tell a story with her that lets her be who she is, and to see who she is post the relationships that she’s had.”
