As Slexie fans know, Mark (Eric Dane) has always maintained that he loves Lexie (Chyler Leigh), even going so far as to ask her to live with him and suggesting marriage in their future. Lexie has been the one to shy away from the relationship, first because she felt she was too young to be thinking about marriage, let alone being a 24-year-old grandmother (to Mark’s 18-year-old daughter Sloan’s baby).
The final straw seemed to be when Lexie found out about Mark’s one-night stand with Callie (Sara Ramirez), resulting in the birth of Sophia. Lexie realized Mark now had two children that would always be more important to him than she would.
That said, Lexie has really started gaining more confidence as a surgeon, now that she’s working alongside Derek (Patrick Dempsey) in neuro. She seems to be more mature, and might even be more accustomed to other people’s babies now that she gets to babysit Zola so often.
Do you think this new Slexie chapter might actually work out for good?
