Cheers to all Grey’s Anatomy fans! This could be the big news you have been waiting for!

Whew. What a huge relief, right? Now that the originals will still operate in season 9, the list just gets shorter and shorter for the people who may get the tragic death in the finale. Don’t dare miss the whole thing on May 17th!

     How certain is this news? I’m betting all my money on Lexie dying.

  • Kayslay

    I’m just happy that it’s not Derek. It could also be Owen or Mark

  • Caroline

    Lexie and Mark have to stay!! Seriously!

    I have this feeling Callie will be the killed off one… ´ve read Mark is safe, so is Jacskon, well who left then… Lexie, Arizona, Callie, Owen, Teddy. And Shonda said the one who will die is beloved one (for everyone) so I´m guessing it´s Callie OR It could be Izzie :) not sure but I think there were some rumours about killing off someone from originlas and when Alex, Mer, Der, Cris, Bailey and Chief are safe it could be Izzie and maybe Shonda said it would be someone really ”beloved” … Mad scheme I know :D just getting crazy waitin for final epis. 

  • Cali04

     i agree:( i dont want her to die but it;s her:(

    Its gonna be Arizona :( 

  • Cali04

    a crazy twist would be that the person who dies IS NOT someone in the crash…….Mmmm

  • Brenrae

    I think it will be Adele.  

  • Brenrae

    I think it will be Adele.  

  • Owen

    why would it be izzie? she’s not on the show anymore…

  • Ptchon

    yes, I have a feeling it could be Keppner commiting suicide

  • Ptchon

    yes, I have a feeling it could be Keppner commiting suicide

  • przemek

  • nottelling

    i agree.  the episode will end without derek being found, and maybe seriously injured, but keppner is done.  

  • d guru

    its gonna sooo be derick…and im sure for the next 2 season he’ll only appear in flash backs!!

  • Marotter63

    Adele.

  • Marotter63

    Adele.

  • Catherine

    Awwww too sad.. but is she a beloved character tho?

  • Ana_d

    Derek has been confirmed to join the next 2 seasons. however, I could appear in flash or alucinattions, like Denny on season 5. But maybe is lexie or arizona. I hope not.. 

  • SjtrIfonoff

    Callie, bailey, Owen, teddy, Jackson and kepner im going with weber! He stepped down as chief, have away his research lab to bailey, put his wife in a home, came to terms with her being on love with another man. Accepting life for what it is. They have set the story line up for his death, which he is like a secon father to Meredith, and beloved by all. Unexpected, until u look at the whole season…

  • Dylan

    the post just said that he has been signed for the next season, which would mean that he isn’t the one who dies…. unless you think he’ll die and come back as a ghost

  • Mimi

    I agree. It would be sad, but I think it would be a more major character

  • Hurrdurr

    or Kepner

  • tootz

    Can the final episode not just come out so that we can find out already!!

  • Anonymous

          I think it will be Alex

  • cpapeer

    Kepner just got an interesting storyline… really, i would like to see her grow and retake the test! + Avery and Kepner would be a nice change, I can´t stand watching that Lexie and Mark drama over and over again.

    Promo looks like Lexie, but it’s said that it’s a beloved character.  I love her character, but I’m not sure I would call her character beloved.  When I hear that, I think more of the bigger fanbase characters, like Arizona and Callie.  With the talk about leaving last week and then Arizona getting on the plane in place of Alex, that just screams that it could be her.  I really would hate for it to be Lexie.  Then Mark would have no purpose whatsoever.  At least with her and the storyline, that gives him some depth and meaning.

    ur probable right since so she can be home with her baby thats dew in like aug or sept

  • Charleneflaugher

    Probably going to be Arizona so then Alex has a reason to stay. That would make the most since, he is the only one with the real oppurtunity if he leaves. The rest are just leaving to leave.

    I must say that this was the dumbest season finale I have seen on Grey’s Anatomy. First off, we always hear about plane crashes and how there are not too many survivors from it. Second of all, way to kill Lexie at the very beginning. Also the staff back at the hospital didn’t seem to really care if the doctors made it to Boise or not. Usually Calzona would be texting each other and the other doctors would stay in touch to let them know how things are going. After the end of the finale, I was very disappointed and if something stupid like this happens during the premere of season 9, then I am done watching. Shonda could have written a way better dark and scary finale.

    I love Arizona, hopefully she signed on to do the next few seasons
