A Grey's Anatomy goner

Dr. George O'Malley is dead, or is he? Yes, he is.

Dr. George O’Malley (T.R. Knight) who appeared to be dying at the end of the last season of Grey’s Anatomy, is going to stay dead. Knight, who has been openly unsatisfied with the writing for his character and has feuded with the show’s creator, asked to be let go from the hit series last year, and when Grey’s Anatomy lets someone go, they usually kill him first. Now the question is, what’s going to happen to the other character whose actor wanted to be let go from the show, Izzie (Katherine Heigl) — she was also under the knife in the season finale, and even met George in what appeared to be heaven. Apparently being in heaven and not being on Grey’s Anatomy are the same thing.
