Cristina and Owen, meanwhile, aren't having any sex at all, on the orders of his therapist. She wants the couple to talk about the choking incident, rather than get caught up in "the lust of it all." Owen finally has a breakthrough and tells Cristina that in his dream, he was fighting for his own life, not trying to hurt her. Later, they finally have sex again and—we breathe a sigh of relief—both manage to peacefully sleep through the night.
Izzie graduates from surgical patient to outpatient. She still has cancer, but unless it starts to grow again, it won't kill her. At George's funeral, the only one crying openly is the girl at the bus stop for whom George gave his life. Then Izzie breaks down and walks away, quickly followed by Cristina, Meredith and Alex. We're shocked, as are they, to see that Izzie isn't crying, she's laughing! She's laughing at the hysterical girl, at the fact that she got cancer, that George got hit by a bus and all the weird, terrible twists of fate.
