Who dies on 'Grey's Anatomy' this time?

OK, I'm sucked in: Let's play the annual game that we play every year about this time -- who dies on the season's premiere of "Grey's Anatomy?" Or -- just shy of mortality -- who is otherwise maimed, abused, beaten, shot or electrified. Ah...electrocution. As fans are certainly aware, Dr. Webber -- James Pickens Jr. -- was electrocuted in the closing minutes last May because, in the midst of that imperfect storm that had descended upon the hospital, he had to turn on a generator, but neglected to step out of some pool of water on the floor before doing so. Hence, he was zapped, we were left with a cliffhanger, and now...the big question.

ABC yesterday shipped out this tease of a promo  that indicates the patient could go either way -- but that some patient will most definitely go. Who could that be? (Recall that there were premature reports of the chief's death some seasons ago too -- except it turned out that someone else, I forget who, didn't get a sufficiently high enough raise or bugged Shonda Rhimes in some other way, thus necessitating his or her demise.) TV's preeminent hospital soap returns Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. for a 1oth season and a 200th episode sometime in early October.
