Yes, it’s true. Despite the many tragedies of Grey's Anatomy Season 9 so far, yet another beloved character is going to lose their life this season. So who could it be?

As we pointed out earlier, we don’t think it will be one of the original characters, all of whom signed two-season contracts for Season 9 and Season 10. They include  Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Cristina (Sandra Oh), Derek (Patrick Dempsey), Alex (Justin Chambers), Bailey (Chandra Wilson), and Richard (James Pickens Jr.).

Of course, considering how many flashbacks there are on Grey’s, it’s entirely possible that one of the above could die in early 2013 and still make enough appearances to honor their contract.

We’re also a little doubtful about either Callie (Sara Ramirez) or Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) dying, since Arizona just made a big move forward by showing up to Seattle Grace-Mercy West for work (even if she was tricked by Bailey).

Still, one never knows! Vote in our poll below for who you think will be biting the bullet come next year.
