Balthazar Getty's Exit From 'Brothers and Sisters' Only Temporary


'Brothers and Sisters' executive producer, Alison Schapker, insisted that though Balthazar Getty is indeed taking some time off from the show, he will return as Tommy Walker before the season is over.

As the speculations surrounding Balthazar Getty's alleged exit from "Brothers & Sisters" intensify with reports that the actor will last be seen in the 19th episode, one of the series' executive producers, Alison Schapker, stands up and uncovers what is really going on. To Los Angeles Times, Schapker confirms that Getty's character will leave Los Angeles in the particular episode, but he will return before the end of the season.

"Balthazar is taking time off from the show right now because we felt that character was really on a downward spiral and you see him really go on it," the producer who has also co-written some of the episode explains. "In almost trying to be his dad, he's destroyed by it, and he has lost everything by the end of the year."

Schapker, in addition, claims that Getty's Tommy Walker will go through a period of spiritual examination and renewal before the Walker clan can get its hands on him again. "Tommy is in no way permanently gone," she further reassures. "This is just the logical end to this year's story. What we'd like to do is bring him back next year in a different way."

Before Schapker came out with the statement, E! Online reported that episode 3.19 of the ABC's family drama series entitled "Spring Broken" will be Balthazar Getty's last appearance on the show. Insiders suggested that in the episode, his character, Tommy, will "go to jail, get out on bail and go on the lam in Mexico". Moreover, Tommy will be seen getting thoroughly wasted, flirting with young girls and getting a slap across the face from Sally Field's Nora.
