Tonight, Dr. Mark Greene returns to County General for a very special episode of ER. Once ER's leading man, Anthony Edwards left the show in 2002 to pursue other opportunities but was persuaded to come back in this final season to help the show bid farewell. Dr. Greene (thankfully) won't be returning as a ghost, instead appearing in a flashback for Dr. Cate Banfield (Angela Bassett).
Greene's reappearance — and the frequent gossip about whether George Clooney will also return to the show — has gotten me thinking about other dead (or merely long-gone) characters I'd love to see return to TV shows currently on the air. Grey's Anatomy certainly hasn't been stingy with bringing back Denny Duquette, but I wouldn't cry about a repeat appearance from Dylan the bomb guy. What about you?
