Grey's Anatomy Rumors: Jeffrey Dean Morgan Style

by at . Comments

Popular guest star Jeffrey Dean Morgan is on his way back to Grey's Anatomy. That much has been confirmed - but when, why, and how?

Is Grey's Anatomy really going to kill Izzie, as has been rumored frequently, with Denny resurfacing to welcome her to the afterlife? Not likely.

For starters, at least one inside source says there are no plans to off Izzie as a means of punishing outspoken cast member Katherine Heigl.

Second, Morgan already filmed his scenes, which are to air in the season premiere, so the timing is wrong for this stunning development.

But ABC Entertainment chief Steve McPherson issued vague denials of a plan to eliminate Izzie, and another insider says that the rumored brain tumor contracted by Dr. Stevens was indeed the plan for Heigl's character in Season Five.

After her diagnosis, Izzie was to see “visions” of Denny.

Of course, if that was (or is) the plan, Shonda Rhimes may change it since the word is out. She’s not a fan of Grey's Anatomy spoilers (with the exception of her giving away the Mer-Der reunion at the end of Season 4 weeks beforehand).

A few seasons back, E! Online reported that Cristina Yang was to have a lesbian storyline. That plan? Scrapped, then revamped (much) later in the form of Callica.

The conclusion is that we're stumped. Morgan's casting confirmation lends credence to the notion that the brain tumor plot could still happen, but the reports we're hearing the subject are conflicting and far from set in stone.

What do you think of Jeffrey Dean Morgan returning to Grey’s Anatomy - and is the brain tumor a good idea? Tell us what you think - and hope.

Dear Shonda Rhimes, 11/6/08 Grey's Anatomy Production Office 4151 Prospect Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90027
I had actually prayed that Grey’s Anatomy would bring “Denny D� back to the show, and then he appeared on your last show. Isn’t that something?! Seriously! I would love to see more “Denny D� on Grey’s Anatomy. He’s so charming and his smile is absolutely mesmerizing. Please have him come back to the show so as to skyrocket your ratings. The come-back character could be the first child of Denny’s parents, whom they had conceived while very young and gave up for adoption but they married later on after finishing school. His name could be Donny or Danny, or Harley. He could have searched for his parents since finding out he was adopted, and his dad could have been dying and began the search for his first-born child, and father and son got together. Please consider my request as I am an adoring fan of Grey’s Anatomy and have been since the very first episode. I wish the show was still scheduled on Sunday evenings. Thanks,

I am so looking forward to JD Morgan coming back, but for good. How cute is he!!! Issie and Denny were great together. I think the writers ought have him maybe actually be his twin brother (could happen) and he and Issie could get something going, or maybe he could come back as a neurosurgeon to take care of Issie's brain tumor, he is the spitting image of Denny, and Issie falls in love all over again. Can,t have too may good looking doctors on this show, can we. He could be Dr. McHubbaHubba. How cool would that be!!!

Please, Please don't kill off Izzy. She brings a little more light hearted approach to the show. I do, however, feel she needs more of a purpose with in Seatle Grace. Thank you so much for bring us this show! I am sooo anxious for season 5!! So any special guest appearances?!

I love the idea of bringing Denny back! And the idea of the brain tumor in Izzy would be exciting, however, she MUST make it and push on the become an even more extrodinary doctor. Maybe she would find her "specialty" this season.

I don't care how the show brings him back; just do it! Without Denny, I don't find the show as interesting.

DENNY!!! Here's what I'd LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see happen - HDS comes back as a paramedic who just looks like Denny, Izzie sees him and looses it! Can't you just see Heigl and HDS sinking their dramatic chops into a storyline like that? It would be spectacular!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
