Owen's PTSD to Return on Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

Dr. Owen Hunt's Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) reared its ugly head in frightening fashion last season when he began sleep-choking a stunned Cristina.

That wasn't the last we've seen of it. Yesterday, Kevin McKidd alluded to things from Owen's past coming up beyond Teddy that influence our favorite redhead.

Could a return of his condition be one of those things? According to Fancast, the upcoming episode "Suicide Is Painless" features his PTSD on full display again.

That late March / early April episode, named for the M*A*S*H theme song, is an Iraq War flashback episode, in which McKidd is said to be absolutely amazing.

Hey, Red

This new Owen story line sounds awesome, albeit scary.

In other news, it looks like fans of Mark and Lexie are in for disappointment if they're expecting a quick reconciliation of their beloved Mexie. It's not happening.

However, Mark will find his romantic attention "diverted by another female doctor" when the show returns with fresh episodes a week from Thursday (March 4).

Any thoughts on who that might be?

Hope it's Teddy and not... Izzy... since they are bringing her back.

Lexii

Wait wait wait... Callie? No I don't think so. Their BFFS... with benefits before they coupled up with other people. LOL. It could be Callie but it's probably more than likely Teddy.

(I apologize! not very gracious of me: Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr.. etc are terrific! the storylines go through cycles of seriousness 'n not for each, so (flimsy attempt at an excuse for my stumble--))

(I look forward to more scenes about Owen's PTSD- McKidd and Oh's acting abilities and intensity make the show for me. Along with Ellen Pompeo's always appealing, winning characterization-)

I´d love to see a war flashback and PTSD! It´s such an important story and they should continue telling it. I agree it´s going to be Teddy with Mark. Finally she´ll move on!

I love lexie and mark together they are my favourite couple.
I live in australia so where I'm up to lexie and mark are still together I'm cherishing their last episodes together

I don't think it is going to be Mark and Teddy. I think Callie sleeps with Mark again. And something happens between AZ and Teddy. That is just opinion. I might be wrong I hope I'm wrong. But JC did and interview and she said there was bumps in the road for the girls and they almost break up and then get back together.

Mark is loving that boring and pathetic as Teddy lol, lol,lol...At least lexie is fresh,smiling.The question is the same...the news entry must have a story and they must interact with the main characters ,if they must remain in the show...SHONDA did the caos and she must disentagle it...at least it not if goes out.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
