When Grey's Anatomy returns for Season 7, Owen and Cristina ... well, you need to read this Grey's Anatomy spoiler here to find out. It's major, so proceed at your own risk!
For whatever reason, creator Shonda Rhimes insists on giving away many details from the premiere - if she didn't, would fewer people watch? It's really weird, if you ask us.
Still, there's little harm in it. If you want to keep building the suspense for the seventh season, turn back now. To read major Cristina and Owen gossip, continue right here ...They’re getting married!
That's right. No cryptic teasers here. Cristina and Owen are tying the not, and Shonda told EW why: “The theme of this season is rebirth,” declares the Grey’s Anatomy boss.
“Everybody is sort of coming out of this very dark place [following the massacre]. There was something really hopeful and beautiful about Cristina and Owen getting married.”
At the same time, Rhimes says she wanted something to symbolize that the show was undergoing a major shift in Season 7. Basically, she needed a game changer ... again.
“We talked about jumping ahead in time, about jumping ahead a year,” she says. “When it came down to it, the thing that signals the biggest change is Cristina wanting to be a bride. There's nothing more different for Cristina than Cristina wanting to be a bride.”
With the Cristina-Owen love triangle toast and a wedding around the corner, what next? Will they succumb to baby fever? Rhimes won't say, but does expound on them a bit.
“It’s really hard for Cristina and Owen to be boring," she says of Yang and Hunt. "If Mer and Der are a lighter couple, Cristina and Owen are so fraught with their darkness and their twistiness that I can’t imagine them getting boring ever.”
What do you think? Are you excited that Owen and Cristina are getting married? How will it come about? Will this mark positive new territory for the couple?
