With Private Practice airing its last episode this January (*tear*), Kate Walsh (Addison Montgomery) is going to have a little extra time on her hands. Could the beloved actress return to Grey's Anatomy?

Definitely (sort of)! Kate Walsh has said that Addison popping back up at Seattle Grace-Mercy West is always a "possibility," and she'd be "open" to returning. It sounds like it's totally up to showrunner Shonda Rhimes.

But what do you think? Do you want to see Addison on Grey's Anatomy, or do you think the character is better served by having her story wrapped up once and for all on Private Practice? And if she did return to Grey's, would you like to see her come back as a guest star, or have a larger, recurring role?
