“Blurry pic of how to hang out 6 feet apart,” Dane wrote on Twitter and Instagram Wednesday, April 29, alongside a photo of the pair standing apart at the top of what appears to be a hillside.
Fans were quick to respond to Dane’s post, with one user writing, “I CAN’T BREATHE.”
“MCBROTHERSSSSSSSS,” said another user.
“MY HEART MY HEART MY HEART,” another added.
In 2012, Dane announced he would be leaving the medical series after a successful six-season run.
“I am extremely grateful to everyone at Grey‘s, ABC and Shondaland for the experience and memories I have had over the course of this run,” the actor told TVLine in a statement at the time. “It has been wonderful to work alongside and learn from a creative force such as Shonda Rhimes.”
“After much consideration and conversations, he and I have decided that this is the right time for his storyline to end,” show creator Shonda Rhimes told the outlet at the time. “We’re a big family here at Grey‘s with a long history together and Eric will always remain an important part of our family.”
Dane’s McSteamy was involved in a plane crash in season 8 and passed away at the beginning of season 9.
