rey's Anatomy broke our hearts by killing Lexie (Chyler Leigh) at the end of Season 8, and, to add insult to injury, Mark (Eric Dane) at the beginning of Season 9. We — as well as a legion of fans — are still in mourning. But how does showrunner Shonda Rhimes feel?

"No one is over Mark and Lexie," Shonda recently tweeted when a fan mentioned missing the dearly departed docs. "Including me."

Well, it doesn't bring them back, but at least we're not alone in missing McSteamy and Little Grey.

Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, January 31, 2013, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
