The guy was such a hound there was bound to be someone out there who would have his child, and he ended up with two such children. The second time he had a child, it was with Callie while she was separated from Arizona. Lexie's association with Alex meant that Mark had an interconnection with him in the storyline. This came at the worst time when Alex was shot in the Season 6 finale. Mark and Lexie worked together to save Alex's life.
While it's the responsibility of any human to save another, Mark's sole reasoning was due to Lexie's state at the time. So, Alex should be forever thankful to Lexie for playing a part in saving his life as Mark would never have been that invested had it not been for her.
This time, it was the aforementioned thing with Amelia that came into play. When Lexie found out that Mark had feelings for her, she took the first step and went to his apartment to talk it out and perhaps re-initiate their relationship. All would've ended well had Mark not again been involved with Amelia at the wrong time.

A Brief Romantic History of Lexie Grey
It didn't last long; her feelings for him were far too strong to control. She had made up her mind that she was in love with him, but the event brought to his mind that they had wasted all this time staying away when they should've been together. It took an awful calamity to come to this point, but they did at least part with love. It may have been the one genuine declaration on Mark's part in his life.
In Mark's case, Lexie remained in his mind till the end. Meanwhile, Jackson was in love with April by then. Lexie's passing brought the clarity to Mark that he had been passing over love his entire life and he imparted some sage advice toward Jackson.
Mark comforts Lexie and the doctors ultimately manage to save all the victims of the shooting, after which Lexie tells Mark that she loves him. Lexie reveals to Jackson that she is frustrated with the people she cares about, specifically Mark and her father, making major life-changing decisions without considering her feelings.
Mark then agrees to let her go, giving her and Jackson his blessing. Grey's Anatomy season 8 Although initially happy in her relationship with Jackson, Lexie grows increasingly distraught and frustrated when she discovers that Mark has started dating an ophthalmologist named Julia. Though Derek had instructed them to merely reduce the patient's brain tumor, Meredith allows Lexie to remove it completely, despite not being authorized by either the patient or Derek to do so.
The sisters celebrate the successful surgery but Lexie is devastated when she discovers that the patient suffered severe brain damage, thus losing the ability to speak. Alex, Jackson and April move out of Meredith's house without inviting Lexie to join them, and with Derek and Meredith settling down with baby Zola, Lexie begins to feel lonely and isolated.
After being left babysitting Zola on Valentine's Day, she contemplates confessing her true feelings to Mark. However, after plucking up the courage to visit his apartment, she finds Mark studying with Jackson and loses her nerve, instead claiming that she wanted to set up a play date for Zola and Sofia. When Mark confides in Derek that he and Julia have been discussing moving in together, Derek warns Lexie not to miss her chance again, resulting in her professing her love to a shell-shocked Mark, who merely thanks her for her candor.
Mark later confesses to Derek that he feels the same way about Lexie, but is unsure of how to go about things. Days later, Lexie is named as part of a team of surgeons that will be sent to Boise to separate conjoined twins, along with Mark, Meredith, Derek, Cristina and Arizona Robbins Jessica Capshaw. However, while flying to their destination, the doctors' plane crashes in the wilderness and Lexie is crushed under debris from the aircraft but manages to alert Mark and Cristina to help her.
The pair try in vain to free Lexie, who realizes that she is suffering from a hemothorax and is unlikely to survive. While Cristina tries to find an oxygen tank and water to save Lexie, Mark holds Lexie's hand and professes his love for her, telling her that they will get married, have kids and live the best life together, as they are "meant to be".
While fantasizing about the future that she and Mark could have had together, Lexie succumbs to her injuries and dies moments before Meredith arrives. The remaining doctors are left stranded in the woods waiting for rescue, with a devastated Meredith crying profusely and Mark refusing to let go of Lexie's hand.
Season 9 onwards[ edit ] In season 9the remaining surgeons are rescued from the wilderness days later, and Lexie's body is returned to Seattle. Mark subsequently makes a clean break with Julia, stating that he had always only truly loved Lexie.
Mark is soon placed on life support due to the extensive internal injuries he sustained during the plane crash and, as determined by his will, the machines keeping him alive are eventually turned off as he showed no signs of waking after 30 days.
After Mark's death, flashbacks of several moments in his life showed him being videotaped at Callie and Arizona's wedding; at the end of his congratulations speech, Mark declares that Lexie was the partner he wanted to grow old and dance with at their granddaughter's wedding. When the remaining survivors of the plane crash pool their compensation money to purchase the hospital, they agree to rename it "Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital" in tribute to Lexie and Mark.
Following Lexie and Mark's deaths, series producer Shonda Rhimes mused regarding the pair's relationship: Their love remains true. But I have had such a great time. Following Isaiah Washington 's departure who portrayed Preston Burkeit was reported that show's executives were planning on adding new cast members, such as Lexie.
It felt like she could be Meredith's sister, but she had a depth that was very interesting. This was granted by Rhimes, though the actress returned in mid-October.
A Brief Romantic History of Lexie Grey
In MayRhimes revealed why she decided to have Lexie die: She was an important member of my Grey's family. This was not an easy decision. But it was a decision that Chyler and I came to together. We had a lot of thoughtful discussion about it and ultimately we both decided this was the right time for her character's journey to end.
As far as I'm concerned, Chyler will always remain a part of the Shondaland family and I can't wait to work with her again in the future. I met with Shonda [Rhimes] and we worked together to give Lexie's story appropriate closure.
I am very lucky to have worked with this amazing cast and crew for five seasons.
My experience on Grey's Anatomy is something that I will treasure for the rest of my life. I want to take this time to say thank you to the fans. Your unconditional love and support have made these last five years very special for me. I look forward to my next chapter and I hope you will continue to follow me on my journey.
And she's here to stay. I love that she's a bit of a dork. Being a dork myself, I am fond of the girls with verbal diarrhea. Because it's not easy to keep all your words in — believe me. In her early appearances, it was learned that Lexie has a photographic memorywhich she applied to her surgical career. She decided that she could live with being Alex's plaything, no strings attached, but when push came to shove, and [Karev's ex-girlfriend] came back for a booty call or two, she showed her true Grey colors and couldn't continue with the emotionless sex.
She has, however, made considerable strides in her relationship with Meredith. Series writer, Stacy McKee, commented on this: It must run in the family — because Lexie, though she's very different from Meredith in many many ways, in this one way — they seem to be exactly alike.
Meredith and Lexie both want to succeed. They want to be strong.
They want to feel normal. They want, so much, to be whole. But it's a struggle — a genuine struggle for them. Sometimes, they have to fake it. In her early appearances, she maintained a friendship with George O'Malley, until developing romantic feelings towards him. Rhimes offered the insight: They make good friends. We all have that friend we met in school or the gym or somewhere — we just hit it off right away.
And right away there was no pretense or airs. That's Lexie and George.
