Jesse Plemons appears on Season 2, Episode 18 of “Grey’s Anatomy” in the role of Jake Burton (via IMDb). Jake is a teenage patient at Seattle Grace Hospital under the care of a plethora of doctors. Jake suffers from a serious brain tumor that has seriously deformed his face and left him struggling to survive. Additionally, he is very self-conscious of the scars that have resulted from his illness and plans to have dangerous plastic surgery completed to fix them. This decision puts Jake at odds with his parents, who want to focus on extending his life rather than his appearance. Ultimately, Jake decides that the risk is worth it to him. Sadly, he dies on the operating table, leaving his doctors and parents to mourn his loss. In the wake of his death, the doctors at Seattle Grace opt to continue the operation to restore his face to the appearance he wanted.
Plemons will next appear in the Elizabeth Olsen-led miniseries “Love and Death,” alongside fellow “Breaking Bad” alum Krysten Ritter. The miniseries is set to premiere on HBO Max, hopefully at some point in 2022.
