I don't know about you, but I cringed every time dead Denny (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) popped up to speak to, advise or kiss Dr. Izzy Stevens (Katherine Heigl) this season on "Grey's Anatomy."
There may have been more annoying and distracting story lines on network television in the last five years, but I can't immediately think of one.
It appears Denny is gone for good after Thursday's heaven and hell episode, in which he revealed to Izzy he was allowed to come back to see her to tell her that she was sick.
Of course, that spoiler has been making the rounds on the Internet for weeks, so it wasn't exactly a surprise. I suspect the writers will now have to deal with whatever ails Izzy besides her broken heart.
What did you think of the Izzy-Denny story line? And are you glad it appears to be over?
