Following the announcement that "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13 will introduce a new love interest for Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw), reports revealed that it might be someone who has been with her in the past.
According to reports, ABC announced on Monday that actress Tessa Ferrer will be reprising her role as Dr. Leah Murphy in "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13. To recall, Ferrer's character was last seen in 2014, wherein she and Arizona had a "serious fling." Unfortunately, the budding love story was cut short when Arizona reconciled with her flame, Callie (Sara Ramirez).
However, Callie and Arizona officially parted ways after the former's relocation to New York to be with Penny. Eventually, Arizona also decided that it'll be best for their daughter, Sophia, to be in New York too leaving her all alone in Seattle.
With that, showrunner Shonda Rhimes expressed her intention to give Arizona someone to be with on "Grey's Anatomy" Season 13. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she said, "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."
Despite Rhimes' confirmation that Leah will be returning in the upcoming season, fans keep on wondering when exactly is she going to appear on the show and be with Arizona. In an interview with Variety, actress Jessica Capshaw herself teased, "Somewhere before the halfway line, I would say. Somewhere leading up to the middle of the season, you will see her spreading her wings and flying a bit."
As of this writing, there has been no solid confirmation that Leah will be back to Grey Sloan Hospital or if she is getting back together with Arizona. However, with all the hints from the show runner and Capshaw herself, it's safe to say that the Arizona-Leah reunion will be something noteworthy to watch out for.
