Grey's Anatomy Season 8 ended with almost the entire cast's fate up in the air. Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and Mark (Eric Dane) are both on the verge of dying. Jackson (Jesse Williams) and Alex (Justin Chambers) are planning to leave Seattle. April (Sarah Drew) doesn't know what the heck she's doing. And Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Cristina (Sandra Oh), and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are a double whammy: They're still in the woods, and even if they survive, they're headed to a new city.

The question is, will any of these characters actually leave the show? We really hope that no one else will die. And while we'd believe some of the docs might head to other hospitals briefly, we've been assuming that they will all find their way back to Seattle fairly early in Season 9.

Still, we might be underestimating Shonda. There have been a lot of cast exits in her shows recently, so we wouldn't put it past her to boot someone else from Grey's if it serves the story.

What do you think: Will any of the main characters actually leave next year, or do you think two losses was enough, and the remaining cast as we know it will stay intact?

Miss Grey’s? Us too. Luckily the show will return to Thursdays at 9 p.m. with all-new episodes in the fall on ABC.
