At this point, Grey's Anatomy is so heavily stacking itself towards the expectation that she won't survive, and with all the "Heigl is leaving the show" rumors... all I can think is that she's going to survive, but is going to quit medicine or something like that.
Despite the near-character assassinations of Izzie (sleeping with George... sleeping with tumor-vision-ghost-Denny... the deer)... I haven't felt so attached to a patient on the show since, well, Denny (because, really, Meredith's Ferry Arc near-death thing... not the same deal as this).
Whichever way the case goes, I'm going to be a wreck.
Damn you, Shonda.
