So, this is certainly not a spoiler (unless you haven’t seen last season’s finale, in which case, shoo… ), but it’s definitely pretty interesting. During his latest Ask Ausiello column, Michael Ausiello revealed some details about the season five finale that most of us probably didn’t know. The details pertain to the heavenly-elevator scene where we see Izzie in the elevator and George standing outside of it.
According to Ausiello, the scene was originally shot with Denny standing in George’s place. But Shonda Rhimes had a last minute epiphany that it should be George not Denny standing there.
Since production had wrapped up by that point, some issues got in the way of them reshooting that scene. The first is that Katherine Heigl was somewhere else entirely. The second involves T.R. Knight’s head. Ausiello says to pick up the new issue of EW for further details.
My guess is that T.R. Knight got a hair cut right after production wrapped and that’s the reason we see him in a military uniform rather than scrubs.
What do you think of the change? Would you have had an entirely different reaction had it been Denny standing there, rather than George?
