After taking a moment, Callie quietly informs her, "Yes I can." Mere cuts in, "Because you sure can't count on anything in life." Hahn laughs bitterly and tells her (now ex-) girlfriend, "I don't know you. At all." To tell the truth, I still feel like all along these two didn't know each other as well as they thought. Between Hahn reacting to every fear Callie had with the same blank smile and Callie not thinking that this thing with Izzie would be a big deal, the two both seem to have not really gotten one another. VO: "Life is the most fragile, unstable, unpredictable thing there is." With that, Hahn walks off alone to the parking lot while Callie stays after her, and we have a clumsy end to an equally clumsy storyline. And it's a shame, because Brooke Smith is an incredibly talented actress and could have added a lot if the show had given her some more depth and not then tried to force this relationship down our throat and insist it was totally organic.
Unfortunately, we're still stuck with Izzie here, although now there's the promise of her being in some trouble. She is in the locker room alone and as she unties her shoes, she's once again joined by a silent Dead Denny. Without looking at him, she tells him that he can't be there and she has to move on. I agree. Denny's dead, I miss him on the show, but I don't need to see his ghost trying to fill the space. Izzie pleads that the reason she had Mike as a patient today is so she could save his life and not feel guilty any more. Really, she's still feeling guilty? Because I've seen zero evidence of that, myself. She begs Denny to go and next thing she knows, Alex is beside her where Denny had been. She grins and kisses her living boyfriend, then tells him she'll meet him at Joe's. He leaves, and Mere narrates, "In fact, there's only one thing about life we can be sure of." It's that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is going to have creepy guest spots until the END OF TIME, it seems, because there he is again. But this time, he finally speaks. "Are you sure you're okay?" She sighs while he smiles at her. Well, at least we got to hear his sexy voice -- that's my silver lining to this whole thing. Mere finishes: "It ain't over 'til it's over." With that, this hour's over.
