Grey's Anatomy Dilema: Should Izzy Live or Die

I don't think it's any secret that Katherine Heigl has been unhappy playing Izzy. And there was talk that Izzy's illness would give the actress an exit strategy.


Is it better that Izzy die or live? On one hand, I'm kinda sick of her, but on the other hand if McDreamy is going to recover at all from being in the kill zone, shouldn't the writers have him save Izzy? What do you think?

I'm 100 % sure that Derek will save Izzy. There is not other way. Otherwise Derek won't be surgeon anymore.

I agree with the last post. It would ruin Derek for life if he couldn't save Izzy, but I did hear somewhere that she was leaving the show. So I'm not sure which way it'll go.

Until the last episode, i wanted izzy to die from her illness coz her character was just getting annoying and kathrine heigl was ungrateful and not enjoying her role and it was coming through on the screen. However the episode that aired last thursday has me hoping that izzy stays on. Kathrine acted really well and something interesting and believable happened to izzy. It was a great episode for her character and hopefully she will continue to redeem herself and then stay on...

I think her character is going places and she was defenitely getting a good groove going. Her performance was getting better and was interesting, instead of her usual whining. I heard she is leaving, but now I just dont know. I mean could it be mc dreamy is actually leaving? would he suicide? Can't be, just can't. I don't know all the facts of who is staying for next season for sure but it seems unlikely something would happen to mc dreamy. Perhaps she will refuse treatment later on, maybe it becomes way to terminal and dreamy finds closure and a inner control to know when enough is enough and he feels better knowing he learned how to control his actions.

Yeah, I agree. Izzy was getting lame (esp. when they introduced Denny's Ghost). The last two episodes have been AWESOME though. Honestly, it's like old times--like the first season when everything was fresh and awesome.
I heard the same, that Heigl was being written out of the show.. but I hope she isn't. She's one of my favourite characters.

If she goes .. i'm not gonna see the show anymore!!!!i'm sick of dereck and meredith story for 5 years.. goerges who is in love with everywomen on the show...izzy and karev back together was the best thing that ever happened this season... so hope no one is leaving and i think they should end it soon...like 2 more season and after that they will be done ... otherwise we have another ER!!!!

I think she was lame recently because the writers became unhappy with her ungratefulness. I think now it's obvious they've forgotten and forgiven, but I believe she was given a stupid plot because they were mad at her. Now I think they're going to let Derek save her because well otherwise that will ruin his story line and make things between he and Meredith even more tense. I could see him saving her and her leaving anyhow. Maybe being cured will make her want to "live life" and not be a surgeon. Letting her die is the easy way out but affects the other characters in a way I'm not sure the show is ready to do just yet.

I think it's unfair to blame KH for the whining character - that's the writers fault, not the actress. The last episode was absolutely superb though. Kudos to everyone involved.

I think she IS getting written out of the show... everyone's talking about it, i even read about it in two different magazines. Sure, it's gonna affect Derek and stuff, but I think that the "welcome to the cancer wing" doctor will take over Derek's work because she seems too annoyed ALREADY, and she'll be the one held responsible for Izzy's death. I really don't like the idea of her leaving the show because she's my favorite character. Plus, if she leaves who's gonna be the happy hyper emotional doctor?

If they do kill her off, I hope they don't cop out with a Kutner-esque exit. I'll have to quit watching Grey's too.
