Izzie Stevens Will Return in Spirit for 'Grey's Anatomy's 300th Episode
Are you ready for this blast from the past?
Gone but never forgotten.
Despite how you may feel about Katherine Heigl in real life, you can’t deny the brilliance and magnetic charm of Izzie Stevens. She was a great character who always kept things moving. Something we desperately need, considering how boring things have gotten over at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
Well, we just may get our wish…
For the 300th episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Izzie Stevens will return in spirit. Okay, so we’re not talking about any ghosts haunting the already traumatized hospital staff, but it will definitely be a very nostalgia-heavy episode. In fact, the landmark hour will be an all-hands-on-deck situation after patients of a roller coaster accident come in with serious injuries. These patients, in particular, will look eerily similar to George O’Malley (T. R. Knight) and Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh).
According to Entertainment Weekly, there’s another patient who will give the Grey Sloan doctors a major blast from the past. That’s right, people, Izzie Stevens will return, but only in spirit. That means Grey’s Anatomy’s original Fab Five interns—which included Meredith, Alex, Cristina, George, and Izzie—will be reunited once more (sort of)!
Damn, don’t you miss the simpler days when George was still alive, Alex and Izzie loved/hated each other, and Cristina was around to knock some sense back into Meredith?
“Cristina, George, and Izzie we’re thinking about a lot during this episode because our three guest actors on the show actually really look like them and remind the rest of the doctors of those characters,” explained Sarah Drew who plays April Kepner on the hit medical drama. “That causes the original group to really remember those people well and want to fight for these ones to live.”
