Losing Sandra Oh is really a big loss for Grey’s! Shonda please don’t let Derek move away. That would be tantamount to Patrick leaving the show. I and many, many fans will stop watching and your ratings will topple!

Once she took away Sloan and little Grey the ratings quickly declined. I think she should bring Burke back for the drama! And Izzy (as much as I hate to say it). End it with a bang in season 11!
