Grey's Anatomy Gossip: O'Mizzie Over?

by at . Comments

When it comes to summer Grey's Anatomy news, Michael Ausiello of TV Guide is all over it. Here's what he has to say about the Izzie-George pairing (which, apparently, is as unpopular with focus groups as our many reader comments would suggest) as well as a hint as to what's to come first for the new interns... one of whom we already know.

Question: I am in desperate need of some Grey's Anatomy scoop: What will happen to George and Callie? Please tell us Gizzie is officially dead.

Ausiello: Well, they're not officially dead, but it's certainly not looking good for the embattled lovebirds after they got eviscerated in a recent focus group. A source close to ABC tells says that George and Izzie polled 95 percent negative, leading one of the 200 participants to conclude that O'Mizzie will be dropped. I hereby take back all the bad stuff I've ever said about focus groups. I love focus groups. Focus groups are awesome.

Question: Got any scoop on Grey's Anatomy?

Ausiello: Two new interns will be introduced in the season premiere (three if you include Lexie Grey). And they'll have their hands full when a three-car accident sends multiple casualties pouring into Seattle Grace.

Ugh, don't even go there. If Callie is pregnant, I hope it's Mark, or I will stop watching for sure. There are some amazing Gizzie fanfics out there. I have a feeling if George and Izzie are dropped, I will leave Grey and read the fanfics instead.

I love them to, but in the finale George and Callie tried for a baby, so what if she gets pregnant?

The writers can't possibly end George and Izzie's storyline! First of all, George/Izzie has a large fanbase as it can be seen on fan forum. Plus, season 3 has clearly showed that George and Callie are over. On the other hand, the witers have done a wonderful job concerning George and Izzie: their scenes are amazing and T.R. and Katie have such an undeniable chemistry. I personnally love George and Izzie and I think they are the best storyline which has been written for a long time. so Please don't drop out George and Izzie storyline!

Actually, the panels are not new, there was a Touchstone anel last year, but the results weren't released until much later, like three months after. There was overwhelming hate for Callie and Addison in those, people calling for their heads. So the panel existed before, it is no new. What is new is releasing the results right away. About Grey matter, if you go there, about half the people hate George and Izzie, and half love them. There have been a lot of positive comments about them in there. As for the season finale, I think the huge majority hated it, which is nrmal, as every single character ended up totally miserable. I felt like taking a Prozac after it. I am one fan that LOVES LOVES LOVES and ADORES GEORGE AND IZZIE. In fact, I don't think have ever been as obsessed with a TV couple as them and I have been watching TV for years and years and have loved a lot of couples. But this one is special.

Actually, the focus groups weren't formed until after last season ended with such negative comments from the fans. The first panels (that I'm aware of) weren't until June, although solicitations to join went out before that. Word is that part of the catalyst (aside from the critics basing S3), was the overwhelming number of posts at the writers blog, mostly calling for Shonda's head, and similar posts at the Touchstone siite.... A focus group for PP initiated cast changes there, and everyone credits the Touchstone panel for causing change at LOST to save that show. I don't watch it personally, but I hear the writing improved immensely and their finale was one of the best this season...

That makes alot of sense because your right if she was going to listen to focus groups then lexie woul be gone, so i do hope she doesnt and sticks with Gizzie

Ok for all of you who belive that this focus group actually has power than i ask you one thing. If the focus group has so much power and hates lexie as much as they do then why did she just become a regular?? I highly dout that Shonda or ABC is going to listen to the focus group. If they had listen to them last year than all of season three would have been MerDer sex. No other characters no story just MerDer sex. I think that if Shonda has been planning George and Izzie sense the first episode i don't think a focus group and ABC can change that. So i say Gizzie should get together and be the new Burke and Cristina because we know they will never be together. The show needs at least two good couples and i say MerDer and Gizzie should be those couples even though i find MerDer kind of dull.

George and Izzie are and amazing pairing. This storyline has been writen to show the true love they have for each other and to end it would be a complete 360. The division they have cause within fandom surely shows what a great storyline this is.

Keep them alive! Thats true love! They are the end game couple!!!!!! We need them both together after all what has happend.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.
