When Will Cristina Get it Together on Grey's Anatomy?

at . Comments

Whether you're bored senseless or riveted by her ongoing struggles, every Grey’s Anatomy fan has to be wondering when Cristina Yang will get it together. She's just not herself.

That's the understatement of all time... but when will she rediscover that fire, that confidence that made her one of the surgical team's rising stars? Sooner rather than later?

Yang in Thought

Where have you gone, Cristina Yang?

“It gets pretty dark for her,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells EW, noting that “Cristina is a person who has identified herself purely a surgeon before anything else. For her to be at a place where she’s not sure if she can even pick up a scalpel is devastating.”

For viewers, especially. But perhaps after next week's documentary episode, when the show is supposedly starting to turn the page from the PTSD/shooting-related story lines, she'll turn a corner. At least we can hope for that, for her sake and our own.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
