Did You Know?


According to Shonda Rimes, the elevator scene at the end was originally filmed with Izzie seeing Denny when the door opens. However when she watched it, she wanted more shock. So she contacted T.R. Knight (George) who shaved his head after filming for the season wrapped, and mentioned the way she wanted the finale to end. However Katherine Heigl (Izzie) wasn't available seeing she was filming a movie at the time. So they just shot George's scene. Katherine was a bit nervous, when Shonda contacted her about the idea of shooting it without her, because she felt it wouldn't look right. But when she watched the scene when it aired, Katherine claimed she bawled like a baby See more »


Dr. Arizona Robbins: I don't see things. So maybe I just don't get what's going on with you or why you're so mad, but I do think it's awesome. I think that George joining the army is awesome.
Dr. Callie Torres: Um, shut up.
Dr. Arizona Robbins: Um, no. You asked me who I was. I am a person who thinks that what George is doing is dangerous and terrifying and brave. He's going to serve his country. He's going to risk his life to save the men and women who make it possible for you and I to sleep safely in our beds. I'm a person who thinks that that is brave...

007 - The Twist That I Didn't See Coming
30 December 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I mean I was prepared for the Izzie roller-coaster and I guessed that it would end with a cliffhanger and with us not knowing whether she lives or dies but George, GEORGE! I did NOT see that coming! Oh wow. I mean I read the spoiler about him joining the army but I did NOT expect this. See how big a shock you get when you don't spoil yourself? I mean the episode was coasting along just as I had expected and then -bam- he wrote 007 on Meredith's hand ----> jawdrop. If I'd known that was going to happen the episode would have consisted of me sitting there waiting for the moment of revelation, blind to everything else.

Oh God, does this mean that only one can live? I mean obviously I want them both to live but if they both survive won't that be a bit too hopeful? Surely they won't both die because I'm not sure realistically how all the characters will function emotionally having lost two members of their 'family' in the same day.......

If I have to choose then I have to choose Izzie to live. I love George but he's hardly had a storyline this season so overall Izzie will be missed more. Besides I much prefer kindAlex rather than off-the-railsAlex which would surely happen should his wife die. Also the fallout would be greater? One thing I am dead against is them hanging around as any form of ghost. Dennyghost and Denny ghost/Izzie sex this season is the worst thing GA ever did and this includes the George/Meredith and George/Izzie sex.

Actually now I come to think about it ..... surely they're going to have to kill George off unless he's going to spend the next 5 seasons with a face like that? I know they fixed Jane Doe's face but George has so many other severe injuries ..... I mean even if he does survive he's surely never going to be able to be a surgeon again? Anyway, let's rewind to something other than the end (the Izzie/George elevator scene was nicely done btw ...) Thank you writers for finally giving us a George/Izzie scene. Despite everything that's happened these two are meant to be best friends so it's about time we had a moment with just the two of them and George telling Izzie to be strong and fight the cancer etc.

I kind of like how they injected humour into Izzie's short-term memory loss issue with Alex and the signs. "Your memory sucks." Zach Gilford and Liza Weil guest-starring! Yay! I have an issue that I feel like the soldier's story never got an ending though? Did the amputation go okay and did it stop the pain? I don't know think they'll be any follow-up in the premiere either.

Arizona is really growing on me. That scene with the Chief was classic! I do much prefer her to Hahn and I think her and Callie are good together. It's also nice to have someone who's actually cheerful on this show.

"I love you Cristina Yang." Awwh, love Meredith/Cristina scenes.

Meredith/Derek/Post-It Note. Kinda sweet but I want a real wedding however small dammit.

Bailey's idea for an intervention: "Grey is going to coax him back as a loving friend. (to Cristina) You are going to use logic and reason to point out the idiocy of his ways. Stevens will make sad cancer eyes, and if all of that doesn't work, Karev, you'll gonna pull out your "I was raised out back with the trash cans" roots and just beat the crap out of him." Oh Bailey, you legend.

Mark/Lexie .... growing on me too. I'm not really bothered by them either way. I guess it's about time Mark Sloan had some development and I guess it makes sense that dating his best friend's girlfriend/fiancée/wife would make him grow up.
