Did izzie die on Grey’s Anatomy?
Katherine Heigl left GREY’S ANATOMY during season 6 as rumors spread that she and the show’s writers weren’t getting along. Shortly after departing, she was seen engaging with colleagues during an episode.
In Season 6, Izzie’s character was unexpectedly diagnosed with brain cancer with a low survival rate. Therefore, she needed to undergo aggressive treatments in an attempt to save her life.
She underwent several surgeries in an effort to conquer cancer. Ultimately, she was successful and married Alex Karev shortly thereafter.
Couple had a child together, then separated. At that point, Izzie moved to a farm with her daughter Hannah. As a wonderful mother she has always been close to her child.
What happens next?
At the start of Season 2, Izzie met Denny Duquette (Jeffery Dean Morgan) at Seattle Grace hospital. Over his tenure there, he became an integral part of their heart transplant program and eventually made it onto the donor list after many ups and downs.
He was an incredible friend to Izzie and helped her out at the hospital. In fact, he even created a glamorous hospital gown just for her!
At Seattle Grace, Izzie fell in love with Denny. She helped him meet his medical needs and worked to move him up the donor list; when he was finally placed on it, she cut his LVAD wire in order to move up higher on the list.
After being placed on the transplant list, Denny succumbed to a stroke. As Izzie grieved his passing, she began seeing Denny again which caused her to experience hallucinations and believe he were still alive.
She began dating George O’Malley, but this relationship proved short lived.
Izzie eventually discovered she had a tumor on her head which was causing her to see Denny. After several years, however, she married Alex and finally beat cancer for good.
Her brain tumor returned and she underwent risky surgery to remove it, leaving her memory intact. Thankfully, this time around, she was resuscitated and eventually recovered from the ordeal.
After this, she became pregnant and gave birth to twins – an unexpected miracle!
Season 14 follows Izzie after her husband divorces her. As a surgical oncologist, she now resides on her own in the country with her daughter. She is an amazing mother and their bond is undeniable.
She has another baby, but this one has no brain and she holds herself responsible. While in rehab when she got pregnant, it was a shock to her to discover she was expecting another unintelligent creature.
In the end, she was able to give her baby a brain and now happily married with twins. Additionally, they own a dog and live on a farm.
