I've been looking for an answer on how the sorcerer's Heightened Spell Metamagic option would affect the immolation spell. Would it apply to all the Dex saves of the spell? Or would it only apply to the initial Dex save?

Sorry if this is obvious; Metamagic is quite different from other forms of casting a spell.

The description of the Heightened Spell Metamagic option says (emphasis mine):

When you cast a spell that forces a creature to make a saving throw to resist its effects, you can spend 3 sorcery points to give one target of the spell disadvantage on its first saving throw made against the spell.

Heightened Spell only ever changes the first saving throw made against a spell. And it only ever applies to one creature, too.
