The past comes back to haunt Izzie in the new "Grey's Anatomy". The 5.07 episode of the show will see Izzie being tormented when a new patient has similar sickness to her late fiance, Denny Duquette who died on the operation table after a failed heart transplant, and the fact that she is in charge of the case, affects her emotional state.

Meanwhile, the Chief announces to the residents that a solo surgery will be awarded, and the news sends them into a competitive frenzy. Meanwhile Derek turns to Bailey for advice when he feels Cristina is interfering in his relationship with Meredith, and Erica discovers a shocking connection between one of her surgical residents and a longtime patient.

It was previously hinted by EW's Michael Ausiello that Jeffrey Dean Morgan who portrays Denny will be back on the show for the November 6 episode. It wasn't clear whether he will come back as mere flashbacks or in a new scene but it was said that Izzie suffers a brain tumor which makes her able to communicate with the dead, meaning if it's true then he would have shot some new scenes.

Thank you squeecakes!... I was just getting ready to clear that up about Denny not dying on the operating table, but in bed after a successful transplant. How could they miss that... Izzies picture of laying on Denny with the pink prom dress is very popular now...

I don't even have to see the episode to know that the connection between Hahn's patient and one of the residences is that he is the one who Izzy hijacked the heart from to save Denny. His life now in danger, and Izzie will have to deal with her demons. Of course this brings back Denny to comfort her and to ease her fragile conscience.

Um, not to nitpick but Denny actually died of a stroke after a successful transplant.. Also, I'm betting that whoever has a connection to Hahn's patient is the reason she needs to leave :(
