Izzie and Alex? Or Izzie and George?

at . Comments

Love them or hate them, Alex and Izzie have generated a lot of buzz so far in Season Five.

The couple has been received positively by many Grey's Anatomy fans, but Izzie's previous romance with George attracted a considerable fan base itself.

So we decided to put it to an informal vote. Tell us which you prefer in the survey below ...

Karev is Cutting Edge
Break Time
Doctor O'Malley

Which couple do you like best?

Does anyone know if Grey's is supposed to take place in the early 2000's? It says that Izzie stole this guy's heart 3 years ago in one preview and in another it says in May, 2000. But in Grey's reality, it's really only about a year and a half into the show since the first 3 years of the series took place when they were interns which is only supposed to be a year. Grey's time is very slow. Anyone else wondering this?

Dang Danny chill out. Its not like whatever wins the vote means it will be on the show. Have you ever read the other polls? Not all of the popular votes come true on the show? Its just to show your opinion so CHILL OUT! Both couples are fine. I dont really prefer either one. i miss Denny. LOVE GREYS!


I love how when Alex/Izzie when, it's "being spammed" and the poll is "easy to manipulate," but if George/Izzie were winning, it would somehow show that more people like them. Get over it. It's an unscientific poll.


I agree with McSpirited. I also am a Gizzie fan, I just wish we could all agree to disagree.
I'm new to the site and all this arguing makes me sad. :(
where's the cheerfulness? be happy guys!


I wish the AI and Gizzie fans could stop fighting.
We are supposed to be enjoying this show together as a team all this fighting kinda ruins it. I'm a Gizzie fan but there really is no need to get super defensive about it. I don't like all the negativity and all the arguing. Let's just go with the flow, and what happens, happens? We should all be friends here, not enemies.


I feel for gizzie fans i really do! Eventhough I do like both pairings,i voted for AI. They've been through so much like falling in love with patients then got their hearts broken. I would have liked Gizzie better if they've been through these tough situations together. I think it was Shonda's idea in the beginning to pair Alex and Izzie together. like in season 2 when denny (well dont hate me but i think denny and izzie are the best couple) died, alex was the one who picked her up and she allowed only him do that. In season 3, she wouldnt go inside the hospital and she just stood there for hrs and Alex was the only one who could tell her to go back home. and even when izzie told alex she was in love with george, he was still a little bit supportive. When alex had problems with rebecca, he could have talked to meredith (like in season 2) bcuz their personalities are pretty much the same but he only let his guard down when he was around izzie. so eventhough im not a big fan of alex or george (im a big merder fan), i voted for AI because it feels to me that the show was set up to have them as a couple. If George was the one who did all those things instead of alex, then it would be Gizzie for me all the way. I also hate it when gizzie fans and ai fans argue over their favorite couples. and please do not bring up the ratings, its just really stupid because we all know the ratings are down this season because of the strike last year (gizzie period). Even CSI lost millions of viewers. So i think shonda should make izzie and george friends again. I think in a way Gizzie is like Rachael and Joey. They were best friends. When they started going out they thought everything would go well. However, after they realized that it wasnt, they ended the relationship really quickly like in 3 episodes (eventhough they have been building up the storyline for that entire season). also i think the main reason for their breakup wasnt because they should remain as friends or something. I think it was because the show was not setup to make them end up together so.


ok, you´re right, Marie. I didn´t see the results cause I thought it be like 70 to 30 or something,but that´s crazy...


Hmm Becks, yes we have. But if AI was winning 60% to 40% or something, but 89% to 10%. Do you really believe that? I don't. On most sites where there are polls on GI vs AI, they end up pretty much equal, sometimes GI has a small majority sometimes AI does. But 90% to 10%, come on. You have been on the Internet and you know GI has a lot more fans than that. If the difference was less, I wopuld buy this, but I don't believe 90% of the fans love AI and only 10% love GI. This is not what I have seen on the Net and off the Net talking with people. It bwas always more 50-50. At least if they spammed elss hard it would be easier to believe. When polls are so heavily on one side, it always raises a lot of suspicions especially since ebven non-Gizzie fans have acknowledged they have a big fanbase. Look at the Gizzie petition, Fanforum Gizize LJ and places like this and on BuddyTV where Gizzie wins favorite couple all the time. Noone is denying AI has a huge fanbase. I don,t like them but they are hugely popular but GI scoring so low is very suspicious. Thanks Greysanatomy.


I'm going to be honest, I voted for Alex and Izzie because I like them better than Izzie and George, no offense to Gizzie fans, and even I was ASTOUNDED when I saw the results. Gizzie fans are so dedicated, I thought they would surely get more votes! AI fans are dedicated too I guess, I mean I am at least, but from AI fan to another, we shouldn't spam the polls. Its childish and stupid. Just because you don't like Gizzie doesn't mean you have to sabotage it like that. Again, I like AI, but I wouldn't vote more than once just to make someone else angry. Let's just try to be fair please, and to the Gizzie fans, I totally hear you! It's def not fair to you guys! And another note: Although I understand why the writers might not have as many scenes with Izzie and George because it could be a little awkward after their breakup, I totally wish they had more scenes together. Just because I don't like Gizzie doesn't mean that I didn't love their friendship. And c'mon, where is George's storyline?! So theres some more points for Gizzie fans! I think its cool that you guys won't give up on them, and even I found myself liking the relationshop at some points, lol, which is bizarre for me, because the first time they slept together I was NOT happy about it. I thought it would destory their friendship... Hopefully it hasn't, and if they don't end up getting back together, I hope it will have made their friendship stronger in the long run! LOVE GREYS.


have you ever thought about the possibility the tha AI are in the majority and that´s why they win.. ? well i don´t want to argue, it´s just sad - for me - to read the comments here and they are all so negative...


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.
