greys anatomy burke is back sandra oh tweets photo 'Grey's Anatomy': Sandra Oh teases Isaiah Washington 'Burke is Back' on Twitter On Thursday (May 1), Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) and Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington) are going to be reunited seven years after their emotionally devastating breakup on “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Washington makes his buzzy return to the ABC medical drama for one episode, “We Are Never Getting Back Together,” although the hour has been dubbed “Burke is Back” by both fans and “Grey’s Anatomy” stars alike. Even Oh got in on the “Burke is Back” conversation on Twitter, sharing a photo of her and her old co-star and former onscreen love interest Washington.

If you want to relive Burke’s glory days before his return at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Oh’s got you covered. “Fantastically ABC is airing the season 3 finale Cristina & Burke wedding episode at 8 PM,” Oh tweets. “That’s the last time we saw him. I’ll be tweeting.”

Washington will only be back for one episode as a part of the “Farewell to Cristina” before Oh departs the series at the end of the season. 

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
