What about Mrs. Webber? Most of the fans adore her.
I'm going to bet on it being Dr. Webber's wife. The storyline with her cannot go any further and if they keep her alive, then Dr. Webber is forever tied to her at that home and he will be limited in his life and romance. Besides, that actress is already being featured in The Client List on LIfetime. It's a much bigger role than on GR. She has a great character there. She says that the ratings are great!
It would make sense that Adele would be the one to die, but I just don't see her as being a beloved character. It will be interesting.
This is the article I read (not sure if we're supposed to be spoiler-ing it, so I will
I don't see how it could be Callie or Arizona. They were already in that horrible car crash that almost killed Callie. I don't think it will be Christina either, she is intertwined in Mer's storylines too much. It think it might be Bailey, but what do I know lol.
I was thinking either Adelle or Teddy. Neither really has any reason to stay on the show. If Teddy dies, that gives Christina the opportunity to be head of cardio, which would tempt her to stay on at Seattle Grace. As someone already said, the actress who plays Adelle has a great role on another show. Is Teddy "beloved"? I don't know, but these things are usually hyped, anyway. Makes more sense it would be Adelle, though.
Seems they're getting what they oh-so-dearly wanted out of it... buzz.
