Katherine Heigl to Return For January 21 Episode

at . Comments

From the looks of this photo from ABC, it looks like Katherine Heigl will actually be gracing us with our presence on Grey's Anatomy the week after next. Who'd have guessed!

It looks like separated newlyweds Izzie and Alex are finally going to have a heart-to-heart, too. The downside? Stevens may be stopping by only briefly before vanishing again.

The episode description says:

"After learning of Richard's drinking problem, Derek confronts him for the sake of his friend and the hospital; Izzie returns, hoping to reconcile with Alex, and tensions run high between Teddy, Cristina and Owen in the aftermath of Cristina's startling confession."

The January 21 episode of Grey's Anatomy is called "I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked." What do you think happens between Alex and Izzie then? You tell us ...

Izzie is Back

More photos and sneak peeks from this episode as well as next week's crossover event, "Blink," will follow soon! For now, share your thoughts on the coming episodes!

katherine heigl not come back never , everybody says. then look for other actress for the rol because i want see alex and izzie together at the end. not divorce or another cracy thing like izzie die after she recovers from cancer.


dont take it out on KH she was performing what the tv writers wrote! will miss her love K.mckidd as for dr. grey the younger, still cant get used to also the combination of her and eric dane (is that his name) is like a schoolgirl crush on a professor yuck lets revive Roswell for K.H. writers must be drying up re. ideas all these unknown relatives popping into the show dreary. might as well bring back the Roswell cast with K.H. now that would be interesting didnt one of them (or all) have green blood?


OMG!!! Izzy how could you leave my fave show!!!!!!!!?????????? -your biggest fan, melanie


I love Izzie, I love that she's completely not cynical about falling in love. But for crying out LOUD, please, someone, decid whether she's staying or going. Oh and can she JUST .... FIND... the right man! Thanks.


I don't understand how Izzie could even be fired. She invested all of that money towards the clinic. I understand that she has a life other than Grey but come on. I love Grey regardless but Izzie is a favorite. Carev is a musclehead but they are good for one another. So I hope they can reconcile.


I love everyone-but I feel that Iz should have been with George the entire time. He was good for her and we all know she loved him more than anything.. I dont think Alex is good for her, or her good for him..


I hope since katherine won't be there they kind of just feel her in with her not being there like say oh izzie's at home or on the phone so it won't seem like she gone we just don't see her instead of her leaving for a short time then returning.


omg i totally missed her :)) i hope she's coming back for real this time


Alex and Izzie is what has kept me watching this show, I've waited so long for them to be together so it upsets me what they are having Izzie's character do to Alex (are they trying to make us hate Izzie, I've loved her and to know that its a story they make up to explain her absence only makes me mad at the show and writers) and then for him to be a totally changed person not the whore he use to be and have him start having an affair, does no one believe in the marital vows or morals anymore. Sad that because of this crap my favorite couple bums me out!! I'm a die hard GA Fan and have never missed an episode, bought all seasons but I'm having trouble even watching right now, I understand that Katherine needs time for movie and maternity leave but having her come then leave I really find it hard to watch. They could have had more to the story shes been gone for months....who doesn't file for divorce after that...seriously. Please redeem this couple ASAP, I want them together and it pains me to see them fall apart..... she doesn't come back full time until Mar or April and then the show ends in May so she was only in a handful of episodes.....I hate this season!!!!!!!!!!!!!1


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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
