abcdefg: I kinda noticed that too.. also the part where the teacher said that his savings were all used up for his wife's medical bills, that left him close to nothing...or something like that. For a while there I thought the teacher was like Alex.. hehe.. his savings went to his wife's bills (though I didn't see any reaction from Izzie as though she could relate, on that scene).

I understand Iz's need for healing...it takes time.. but shutting alex out of her life just like that, without giving him the benefit of a doubt (just like what alex said), was quite unfair and cruel. She based it on assumption, worse, she misjudged her husband... I understand Alex.. I actually felt for him, his hurt. Izzie felt "betrayed" based on assumption. (it's not even about having a third party--where men usually deny). Alex's hurt was based on how Izzie, of all people, could think that way about him, as though he was putting her down.:( Didn't he also offer his life by being with her? That itself was a gamble, was proof enough how much he loves her. I felt sad for Izzie... I really hope there'll be redemption of character. She should learn to appreciate the love of the closest people in her life right now and let go of the past.

Alex should be the last person she'd doubt, because he's her husband... they're practically "one" and they should work as a team, they're partners. It's gonna be Izzie's loss if she still loses alex. He's the one thing, person that she has right now... not the job. Jobs come and go...when she's not feeling well, her job won't do her any good.. but the love of that one person who's willing to dedicate his life for her or at least help her..and vowed to live the rest of his lifetime with her...is still there. She's one very lucky girl. The least she could do was to give the best of what's remaining of her. Well, I hope she realizes this before it's too late.

hehe, sorry got carried away. :P On the other hand, Alex initiated this, so he's in for some real great challenge. He should have enough patience. The moods of a sick person could be unpredictable and he should have prepared himself for that. He jumped into this, he should get out of it alive. haha. One possible, terrible twist of storyline -- alex encounters an accident that may shock Izzie even more. hehe.

Leonie: Hi! I didn't think Alex gave up just yet. For sure, he was hurt, it was quite a spur of the moment thing too... he also has the right to feel that way. Besides, it was Iz who said that she won't forgive him for what he did (for what she "thought" he did), that's why he also said that if she can't forgive him, he can't forgive her either. If we come to think of it, Alex's hurt has more substance/weight in it. If that one person we loved, we married, thought wrongly or badly of us, accused us of doing something without even asking us or clarifying things with us first then punished us by ignoring us, how would we feel, right? at least give the person the benefit of a doubt...

True enough, Izzie shouldn't forgive alex.. because he didn't do anything wrong in the first place. ;)

We saw how much Alex loved Izzie... how he cared for her, how he thought of her..how he fought for her. The mercy-girl temptation was there, but his heart and mind were still focused on his wife. He felt so alone, yet he's trying to cope. He opened up to Izzie... he treated Iz not only as wife but his friend.Not to forget.. for someone who could just pick up any girl yet do all these things? ;)

IMISSGEORGE: I miss george too, hehe. re: bills, LOL! I thought of that too!!! Geez! hahaha, c'mon let's get practical. how much love can endure all those bills?!! plus, he wasn't getting enough emotional support from the girl he loves most.. that's the saddest part of it. They're supposed to be in this together. Izzie is still functional so she should still participate. Well, let's see how mature these people could get in moments like this.

OPTIMISTIC: Hi! I want to be optimistic about Alex and Izzie! :) as optimistic as we can get! I agree with what you said... I understand Izzie, but I couldn't find any justification for her behavior too(unless scientific, which maybe only Dr. House could resolve, haha).Yeah I know she lost her former bf, her best friend, got cancer, lost her job... but she seems to forget what she still HAS... which I think is more than enough of what she lost.. - the love and care of her friends (hey, getting cristina all that mushy and caring was no easy deal, meredith doin all those stuff for her in between her other duties, most of all -- Alex, he gambled his life and vowed to be with her the rest of their lifetime...that's why he decided to marry her right? he loves her. She is his inspiration. :) He thinks she makes his life beautiful... that's how valuable the girl is to the boy. 

Whatever happens, I'm still for alex and izzie. They got into this together, they should go through with it together. I hope they won't quit nor give up. I still hope to see a Karev family... so that maybe if the time comes when Iz has to leave (which I hope we no longer see), she has given alex someone to remember her by.:)

Dew: Nice comment! Haha :) I agree with you on most of what you said. And I'm not justifying Izzie leaving, but being a surgeon is more than just a job to her. It's her dream. It's something she's wanted since she was a kid. She had to work her ass off to get to where she is now. She grew up in a trailor park, got pregnant as a teenager, gave her baby up, became a model to pay for med school, and pretty much did everything she possibly could to make her dream come true. She had to overcome a lot more than everyone else did. Nothing was handed to her. And after all of that, it's just taken away in an instant. Losing her dream, on top of everything else she's lost, has to make it pretty hard to think positive. Obviously she's educated and can get a job somewhere else, but still...

Anyway, I believe in A/I. Look at everything MerDer went through. They came out of it, and so will Alex and Izzie :)

I think so too. They are strong and if they want to get through this, they will.

(I don't know if you do this kind of thing in this forum and I usually don't do it, but I read a fanfic... I loved it.

Izzie really had a hard life and her dream was taken away from her. She gave up a daughter... that says alot.

I hope the writers give us back our old Izzie soon!

Thanks abcdefg. :) True, her being a doctor is not only a job but also her dream, something she worked so hard for... but I guess that's when we say.. "that's life."hehe... well at least she still achieved her dream. It wasn't "shattered" nor "stolen" from her. her licensed wasn't revoked right? she wasn't sued for malpractice either. It wasn't as though she could no longer practice at all. She was just fired, though maybe she just expected a bit more from the Chief...for a favorable response that would side her, only that the merger limited the chances and had been very strict on biases. She was also partly to blame in the first place, sad to say.

It's not difficult to "understand" Iz... she's undergoing phases of grieving..one after the other, it truly must be tough. But how she "misjudged" alex was a different thing (well, of course we know there are reasons why the writers had to do this... for whatever reason or technicalities -- like ms. heigl going on leave, etc. that they had to bend & twist the story here and there). Anyway, for the sake of discussion, hehe, leaving a person just like that -- a husband no less, is hurtful. She could've asked for space...but she left thinking that her hubby did something to pull her down,worse accused him based on assumption.

She could've done a cameron (geez, what's with these lady doctors leaving their husbands! haha) -- but yeah, different story & emotional turmoil they have to deal with. *sigh* I hate it that I love both couples.. both got married...and now... both are in a rocky road. ahckk! The writers are popping my bubbles!!

Anyway, I think IZ's practically on her way of living a full life (though could be shorter than the rest due to her illness). She just have to make the best of what really matters. :) and this I hope would be the lesson the viewers could get out of this... not an easy divorce... I hope Iz realizes what Alex had to go through...that when we come to think of it, is heart-wrenching. You marry someone who's dying.. you are hoping against hope, gambling your heart...willing to cross the raging waters with her...trying to give the best of him, trying to be the "hope" of someone who is losing it. They should've checked Alex for a mental condition. :P

Ahh, drama. This has to happen so there'll be drama. :) At least people still react, get irritated and stuff. Eeek.. this is a long reply. haha. I'm with you and the rest who are backing up Iz and Alex. I'm not and I was not a Mer-Der shipper, but I know they'll have to end up no matter what 'coz they're frontliners. They're ok... but I was more drawn to A/I.

As Forrest Gump would say "Life is like a box of chocolates, we never know what we're going to get." 

Leonie: Haha, that's another secret that Alex has to know in the long run... whatever, as long as they'll stay married til the last episode, then I'm fine. haha. :D
