Despite their reunion, Drew told Deadline that she was hoping their story wouldn't just end there.

"It definitely leaves open the possibility that you might be checking in with them," the Everwood star said. "After the script was released, I had texts flying in from cast and crew asking if I was coming back next year because of how the episode ends."

However, Drew admitted that it wasn't on the table yet, and no one had discussed the matter with her to make it official.

How is the hospital going to recover? What is going to happen? What is the next year gonna look like? So I think there are a million questions and a million possibilities."
