Grey's Anatomy: Dr. George O'Malley
In the Grey’s Anatomy Season 5 finale, a man comes into the Seattle Grace ER maimed beyond recognition — hit by an oncoming bus after rescuing a woman from its path. The doctors refer to the dying hero as “John Doe,” but after he traces “007” on Meredith’s (Ellen Pompeo) hand, she realizes it’s adorably awkward George (T.R. Knight). She freaks out, we freaked out, and he flatlines.
We cried, just a little — and by a little we mean a lot.
