It turns out the show had already finished filming with Callie going to New York, but that wasn't actually meant to be her proper send-off.

"I had a different plan going and when Sara came in and said, 'I really need to take this break,' I was lucky that we'd shot the end of the season with her going to New York," Rhimes said.
