'Grey's Anatomy' Fans Have Questions and Theories About Mark and Lexie's Afterlife Relationship Status

[Spoilers ahead for last night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy. If you haven’t watched yet and want to remain spoiler-free, hop out of this post.]

Grey’s Anatomy fans were absolutely thrilled last night when they were treated to not one, but two guest appearances on the show. First, fan favorite Chyler Leigh came back to reprise her role as Lexie Grey, which was enough to make people lose their minds. But then, Eric Dane made a surprise cameo as Mark Sloan, and the internet practically blew up. But there’s one lingering question from the pair’s appearance: Are they still together in the afterlife?

It did come up during their beach scene. “So you two are together?” Meredith asked the two of them.“On your beach it looks like we are,” Mark said. At first, to the untrained Grey’s viewer, that might seem like a clear answer. But if the beach is somewhere that exists between the real world and the afterlife, Mark’s answer seems a little more weird. Like, are they only together on the beach that’s in Meredith’s mind and nowhere else? I’d like to imagine Lexie and Mark are in a relationship in whatever afterlife situation exists, but it feels like the show left this one intentionally vague!

Some Grey’s fans on Reddit have theories about this. One user, AJJRL, thinks this comment meant that Lexie was more comfortable moving on than Mark, so maybe Lexie has fully crossed over into the next life or whatever, while Mark has not. Another, Mercy_Death, said that she thinks that was the characters’ way of saying that this is all in Meredith’s head, so the logic doesn’t really matter anyways. It’s a figment of her imagination and in Meredith’s imagination they are together. Fair point.

My theory? Grey’s is just trying to mess with us all, as they have been for 17 seasons. Don’t mind me, falling for it every time.
