Burke getting shot and Izzy cutting Denny's wire was not the season finale.
In the finale Denny's transplant was done by the doctor who was fighting Burke for the heart. None of the residents would admit to cutting the wire so all were on a no-surgery status until someone came clean. Since they were not doing surgeries they were assigned to the chiefs niece and had to plan a prom at the hospital for her.
Denny was recovering and had asked Izzy to marry him and she accepted. Then he just died and Izzy found him dead in his room.
Burke was in recovery from his wounds but was having motor skill problems with his right hand. Christina couldn't seem to be with him and was avoiding him.
Meredeth was dating the Vet and seemed to have gotten over McDreamy but they hooked up at the prom in one of the rooms. Meredeth lost her panties and they didn't have time to look for them because George's girlfriend came in and told them about Denny. She also helped Meredeth fasten up her dress so she knows what they did. After the prom was called on account of Denny's death, Izzy admitted she cut the wire and quit.
That pretty much fills the gap between the last episode you saw and the season premier.
