Death To Izzie Stevens On Grey's Anatomy?

It could happen.

Lingering in the air at Seattle Grace hospital is the feeling that something has gone unresolved. Sure, the doctors and patients go about their business as if nothing has changed, but there is a key element missing from years past that has still never been fully addressed.

And her name is Izzie Stevens.

You'll recall that Katherine Heigl peaced out from the show last year to be a mom and movie star and if you are a fan of the show, you know that Izzie and Alex called it quits on her very last episode. But ever since then, Alex hasn't been the same, still been pining over the wife that left him.

In short, the Izzie story needs to be wrapped up and quick, but there's only one easy way to settle it — kill her off.

But will Shonda Rhimes go through with it? Not so much. She explains that she and her staff went through a lot of options, but when they did settle on killing her, it just didn't feel right. She explains:

“It was ready to go, but then I went home and literally couldn’t sleep,” she recalls. “It just felt so mean. It wasn’t closure; it just felt brutal. Alex might have never recovered from it. And the audience who loved Izzie would’ve been devastated. So we didn’t do it.”

So, now what? We just let things stay in limbo?

That's completely up to Heigl!

“I’m open to seeing Izzie again,” Shonda says. “So if [Katherine] were to come back, we would be thrilled to [wrap up her story]. But if she doesn’t, we’ll just move on.”

We're betting on the latter. We all know how Katherine feels about returning, even though it would be nice to give Izzie some closure.

What do U think? Would U like to see Izzie return or have you already moved on?

    If they kill her will we have to suffer with flashbacks of her because I am not down with that?

    Katherine might be open to going back since her movie career sucks. It might help her since most think she's difficult. I wouldn't want her back for good though. Both the actress and character are annoying.

    I never liked Izzie Stevens on Grey's, and I don't really like Katherine Heigl, either. She's gorgeous, but she always plays Izzie - all of her movie roles are just the same all over again. With all that said, I do think Izzie should get some kind of closure.

    Izzie who? lol. I've forgotten about her. She always annoyed me and I don't miss her.

    I'm glad she's gone… And the monologue Alex gave Izzie on that last episode was perfect… Basically said your a great person but the biggest self absorbed person and your ego is too big for your head. She screwed herself over glad her movie career sucks considering that she's a lousy actress

    She SHOULD come for 1-2 episodes, just to make it clear… I hate when the plot changes because of the actors. It’d be awesome. I really wish she can be this kind of good person and be back for 2 eps.
    I also would love to see Burke again. It was never the same without that guy. Christina’s part was never a whole one without him. I’d really be uber-happy.

    Re: Reallynowcmon – She's doing tons of movies. Check out her IMDB page.

    Katherine changed. She seemed like a normal everyday actress and then after a couple of years on the show she became a stuck up bitch. I don't know how many of the others get along with her but I am betting very few of them. The show isn't the same anymore. They are good for having fantastic finale's and then when it comes back in the fall the eppys suck. So far this year they suck as usual. Wow Perez, you must of bit off your tongue writing this post. You can't stand her and I'm sure you wanted to really type what you really feel but can't.

    Loved Izzie, but it's time to move on.

    She should just move on…she makes more money in movies with less work…most TV stars would want to be movie stars but are not being given the opportunity so as long as some movie producers want her she should take that route in my opinion.

    I think Katherine is in a better place than she was a year or so ago. I'd love to see her back, and if she's smart.. she will come back
