Now or Never
Season 5 | Episode 24 | Aired 05/14/09
Izzie’s still seething about her fight with Alex. They quickly realize that she actually recalls the fight. Her memory’s back! As Alex and Izzie celebrate, she collapses in his arms. She’s coding, and her DNR is still in effect. Alex doesn’t care. The Chief doesn’t either. He shouts, “Screw the DNR!” That’s right Chief, save our Izzie!
As Meredith’s checks on John Doe, he traces something on her hand. “007.” As longtime Grey’s fans, we were freaking out. Way back in Season One, a member of the intern team lost a string of patients. He earned the “007” nickname because of his “license to kill.” It’s George! John Doe is George!
As the music builds, we see a beautiful Izzie wearing the dress she wore the night Denny died. As the doors to the elevator slide open, we see George waiting for her in full Army dress uniform. Season finales like this take years off our lives!
