When Grey's Anatomy returns for its new season, will a matter of weeks or even months have passed since we last saw Izzie and George clinging to life?
That's been the rumor, although TV Guide debunks it in its spoiler Q&A today. Here's what the magazine has to say about the Grey's Anatomy timeline ...
Q: Is there anything to report about the new season of Grey's Anatomy?
A: I know there's been talk that Season Six might pick up a few months after the nail-biting May finale, but sources are now saying that's not the case.
In fact, the September 24 opener will find both Izzie and disfigured George still coding, and as we all know, T.R. Knight will not be returning to the cast.
Over the two-hour season premiere, watch for the outcome of this traumatic scenario to weigh heavily on a lot of people - including at least one doctor whose reaction you may have taken for granted. Now who do you think that might be?
It looks like Izzie survives on Grey's Anatomy, and we'll get to see it.
