|Pilot:Â Time is of the essence for Jackson, the little boy who desperately needs a new liver. Heâ€™s put on an experimental dialysis treatment but if he doesnâ€™t get new organs in the next 24 hours, heâ€™s going to die. We know Dr. Miranda Bailey canâ€™t let that happen. Things are also critical for serial killer William Dunn. Heâ€™s caused severe damage after attempting to kill himself. At first he begs Meredith not to page Derek. He wants to die at Seattle Grace instead of being executed in prison. But as death nears, William loses his nerve. He wants to live. Already uncomfortable with the Dunn situation, Cristina pages Derek, whoâ€™s absolutely furious with Meredith for not telling him sooner. Derek orders William into surgery and demands that Meredith scrub in to help save his life and repair the damage she helped create. The surgery is going well when Miranda bursts in demanding that Derek stop the operation. She wants William to die so that they can use his organs to save Jackson. Derek puts it all on Bailey, making her think about what sheâ€™s really asking him to do. After some tense moments, Bailey tells Derek to pick up his scalpel and finish the surgery. We totally feel Mirandaâ€™s anguish. That Denny sure is persistent, isnâ€™t he? Izzie told him she wants him to go away, but some ghosts just canâ€™t take a hint. He keeps saying heâ€™s there for Izzie, which is a little creepy. She figures out that he means that heâ€™s there to take her with him. Now itâ€™s really creepy. Izzie realizes that she must be sick. Really sick. Sheâ€™s furious with Denny for not just telling her. After a final kiss, Denny disappears. But what does that mean for Izzie? We have no idea? Do you?
