First of all - what a finale!  Grey's Anatomy fans thought they'd be getting answers on tonight's season finale.  Little did they know that they'd be getting more questions than answers.  As this season ended, two lives hang on the line - Izzie (Katherine Heigl), who crashed right when Alex (Justin Chambers) was hugging her for remembering something; and George (TR Knight) who was revealed to have jumped in front of a bus to save a random girl.

The dream sequence with Izzie in a pretty dress in the elevator and George in some uniform smiling at each other doesn't bode well on those Grey's fans who want both to survive.

Of course, speculations were already rife that both George and Izzie are on their way out of Seattle Grace this season, but I guess it's true: while we know the premise and the gist of what's going to happen, never in our wildest dreams could we have guessed how the Grey's people are going to do it.

Izzie. It doesn't look good for Izzie.  She crashed, flat-lined actually, and Alex is sobbing.  The girl had hallucinations of talking to Denny (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) on the beach! How can it get more blatant than that? There appears to be some hope for Izzie, however, as she remembered something Alex said (the bit about smothering her with a pillow to end their misery). So that was a glimpse of hope that she might not only survive the surgery, she may actually emerge from it with her memory intact.

George.  It also does not look good for George.  Earlier in the episode, back when he was just faceless guy and not their lovable colleague, Meredith said George could very well die during the day.  Of course, now that they know that the guy is not just some any other guy, predictably, they'll exert more effort into it.  However, George was also on that vision! And he was wearing something that looked like an army uniform and smiling at Izzie.   Could the two found love in heaven at the afterlife?
