Grey's Anatomy: A Romance For Mark and Lexie?
Grey's Anatomy: A Romance For Mark and Lexie?
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Lexie is completely in love with George on Grey’s Anatomy – that is, unless you’re George. He’s so preoccupied with his own issues, both personal and professional, that he doesn’t even realize his new friend has some serious feelings for him. Dr. Sloane has noticed and doesn’t pass up an opportunity to take a dig at Lexie and call her “pathetic” for ignoring her work responsibilities in order to help George whenever she can. However, her photographic memory and superior research skills cause Mark to take a second look at her and it looks like these two may become friends. It seems, though, that there was even (dare I say) a spark? This hint at a romance between Mark and Lexie have caused BuddyTV to protest and this is one bandwagon I’m happy to jump on.

First, let’s point out the obvious – the age difference. “Mark could be Lexie’s dad. Way too creepy,” BuddyTV reader ShellyK said. “She looks too young for him. I like her with George a lot. I still like Gizzie more though.” Just when you thought the Gizzie fans were long gone, they reappear, including reader AubreyT who said: “George and Lexie are so cute. I would love a George, Izzie and Lexie triangle. I love Gizzie more though.”

Then, there’s ridiculous plotline of best friends Derek and Mark dating the Gray sisters. That’s one storyline reader AnaMartinez45 can’t stomach. “Just the idea of Mark and Lexie makes me laugh,” she wrote. “Derek and Mark dating sisters? I can imagine this being Mark's twisted fantasy but not sure how this would play out for Meredith. “ Undoubtedly, Meredith would be unhappy should Lexie choose to date anyone in her circle at Seattle Grace.

Though it seems that McSteamy could have sexual chemistry with a toaster oven, I still have a hard time picturing him with little, innocent Lexie Gray.  George seems way more her speed and by that, I mean slow goin'.  I never liked her with Alex last season and we're starting to run out of male doctors for her to sleep with.  Do us a favor, Shonda.  Keep Mark and Lexie's relationship strictly professional and let her continue to pine away for Dr. O'Malley.  Gizzie is dead and gone and Gexie is the worst couple name.  Perhaps Lexie is destined to stay a single woman for the time being.
