We've kept our fingers crossed for George and Izzie to pull through, so we gasp when Izzie opens her eyes! She's alive! But we're devastated to learn that there's no hope for George, who is brain dead. George's mother is too upset to decide whether to donate his organs and asks Callie to make the call. Alex wants to keep the news from Izzie, but Callie tells him his wife will never forgive him if she doesn't get the chance to say goodbye. We burst into tears along with Izzie when she holds George's unresponsive hand. And we worry as her new husband, Alex, looks on jealously. She decides that George would "give everything," and we fight back tears as a donor team stands by to whisk his organs away, especially when a very emotional Miranda demands to know the names and ages of all the recipients, who are all (*sniff*) children.
We're not surprised that George's friends deal with their grief in different ways. "Newlyweds" Meredith and Derek have sex all over the house, to the consternation of their housemates, who find them, naked, on the stairs! Derek throws the keys to his trailer to Alex and Izzie and tells them, "Welcome to your new home!"
