Who would Dr. Stevens’ departure hurt more — her fans or her on-screen hubby, Dr. Karev?
It’s no secret that Kathrine Heigl, 31, may be leaving Grey’s Anatomy for good. Dr. Izzie Stevens hasn’t appeared at Seattle Grace for the past few episodes, and it’s been confirmed by People that Katherine didn’t return to the set on March 1 as expected. So, what can this mean for the show and for all Grey’s fans?
Sources confirm to Entertainment Weekly that Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes has agreed to let Katherine out of her contract. And after Katherine missed part of this season due to the adoption of her daughter Nancy Leigh, a source adds that ABC and Kathrine have decided to part ways now instead of at the end of this season. Could this be true?
I know I sure would miss Katherine if she didn’t return. She plays such an important role that her departure would change the show’s whole dynamic. We’ve already seen it start to happen this season in her absence — and I don’t like where it’s going.
ABC, I really hope you didn’t let Katherine go. That would be a HUGE MISTAKE!
