Behold: The Grey's Whisperer

by at . Comments

Shark, prepare to be jumped. If you haven't been already.

Maybe we should have more faith, but it appears as if Grey's Anatomy is turning into The Ghost Whisperer before our eyes. In this, the show's fifth season, Izzie Stevens is seeing, speaking and making sweet love to her dead fiance. From Season Two.

It's ridiculous enough on its own merit (or lack thereof), but made more so by reports that ABC has begun testing the Izzie-Denny story line with focus groups. The same ones that got Brooke Smith abruptly and inexplicably fired earlier this year.

Is Grey's Anatomy just throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks at this point? These and other recent stories' complete lack of sense would suggest so.

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."
