Seriously, Will Cristina Bounce Back on Grey's Anatomy?

by at . Comments

The bartender experiment makes for good laughs (and a good Grey's Anatomy Caption Contest) but when will Cristina return to being Cristina the badass surgeon we know and love?

According to E! Online, a source saw Sandra Oh back at Seattle Grace-Mercy West for a recent shoot, so it looks like her upcoming fishing trip with Derek may have done the trick.

At least we can hope ...

The Life of the Party (and the Bar)

Speaking of that fishing trip and Derek's involvement with Cristina, some fans have wondered why Yang's PTSD seems to be of greater concern to Der than Meredith's miscarriage.

Creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes' response: "Because Cristina saved his life & because no one held a gun to Mer's head, gave her PTSD and made her unable to operate ... because he is being optimistic about future babies."

Hard to argue with the boss there.

As for whether Meredith and Derek will get legally hitched this season (a point of contention among some Grey's fans), Rhimes says, "Mer and Der are as married as they are gonna get. I love them together and I love them together on a Post-It."

Actually it is realistic that they are not speaking about the miscarriage. It will was the most stressful situation anyone could ever be in. On top on that, they are still getting over the whole thing and meanwhile Cristina has quit?! So of course they aren't speaking about it.
I had a miscarriage and we hardly ever speak of it... Almost never.

Mer's distress over the miscarriage has been a neglected as a SL. Two episodes of not telling Der and a brief reference telling Lexie about it seems inadequate. I know Mer has been strong but there should be more than what we've been given on screen. Has Der had more screen time with Cris than Mer so far in S7 than Mer? We're lucky if there are more than two brief scenes between MerDer in an episode. I feel Avery's own version of guilt of surviving (when his friend didn't) a bit unconvincing too. I can't remember any particular freindship bond, it was MW residents bonding cos they were moved to SGH. I would have thought it would be Kepner with the nightmares cos she literally fell over her dead BF and was covered in her freind's blood.

Mer may or may not be okay who knows shes been busy dealing with everyone else and what she wanted was for Der to survive which he did...I believe she's okay because what she wanted was for Der to be okay...she had him to lose, Cris didn't she didn't have anything to lose. Mer may have lost her baby but she only knew about the baby for one day, not to say that is not important but she has had der for longer and I think if Mer had to choose from the baby she just found out about to her post it husband, then she would have picked her husband. Cris had a gun pointed to her head, Mer did not convince Cris to operate Jackson did after they informed Cris that Teddy had left. Cris may have placed blame on Mer but I think it is because she wants to blame someone and she doesn't know who, shes focused on why shes the way she is and not what to do to get better. Cris also had Owen to lose that day as well, he got shot in front of her as well, and she was scared to death. Der understands that if it wasn't for Cris he would not be there, they needed a cardio god and Mer is not one, Avery could not have not done the operation and I really don't think April could have either, it was up to Cris. Everyone is focused on getting Cris back in to the OR and I like Der method of giving her time, a lot of people are hating on Owen saying that he not doing anything but he is. He is standing by his wife and letting her have her little tantroms, not a lot of people would let their significant other give and lap dance to other person and carry them out and give them water while they puck. Personally I think Dr. Yang will come back and kick some OR butt she just needs to see the light without being pushed into it by anyone else, she go when she's ready to go. I also hope that the friendship or like SR likes to say the true love story of the show, that is Mer and Cris will make us as well. Cris never said that she hated Mer she's just mad becuase Mer is fine and Cris is scared to death that the one thing she loved to do is the last thing she wants do to.

i know she has to come back, but in real life people make drastic career changes all of the time, I really hope she stays away for awhile

I am completely and utterly disappointed on how SR and the writers have treated Meredith's miscarriage. It shows that they have the sensitivity of a walnut. Shonda Rhimes presented this golden opportunity for a storyline in the finale that can cover a least 10 episodes and what does she does? She doesn't use it and disregard it as if Meredith Grey lost a book instead of a baby. I am baffles as to why Shonda haven't used this opportunity to explore a new storyline that hasn't been done on Grey's. Has Grey done a story about person who loses a pregnancy that she wanted? NO, GA hasn't done that, but has been dealing with PTSD for two freaking seasons. Let's get real Cristina's PTSD is just a repetition of Owen's, the only difference is that Cristina get her PTSD attacks in the hospital and Owen had his in the bedroom while sleeping but is almost the same thing. Cristina lashing out at Meredith is just another repetition of Derek lashing out at Meredith. Cristina quitting another repeat of Derek and Izzie quitting. What is happening with Cristina this season is not new, it has been done with others characters. Can someone tell me what was the point of Meredith being pregnant in the finale, is she wasn't going to stay pregnant and Shonda wasn't going to use the miscarriage to do a compelling, powerful and relevant story for many women who have experience miscarriages. What was the point if Shonda wasn't going to use the miscarriage to put Meredith on the way to becoming a mother. Also think that having Meredith deal with the miscarriage now, is kind of late for that, because is kind of irrelevant now. Then having Meredith have breakdown right after Cristina has her, would be too much. Meredith can be slow in reacting to thing but not 7 months later.

No one is saying that Cristina is the only one who saved Derek. But she was the only one who operated with a gun pressed to her head. She had to think through a procedure, one she was not qualified to do, all while doing the exact opposite of what the gunman was telling her, knowing that any second he could pull the trigger. She had to continue after seeing her boyfriend get shot, and thinking he was dead, and after watching a gun being turned on her best friend. She deserves to be called a hero, as she had the most stressful experience during that time. Just because Bokey and Avery were there doesn't mean they had the same experience. They didn't even move to assist her until after the killers attention was distracted away from them. I'm not saying that they are cowardly, as that is what most normal people would do, but the point of the storyline is that Cristina did something that most normal people couldn't do and she is suffering for it.
I'm enjoying her storyline, as it has taken 7 seasons for her to get her own story that is not attached to anyone else's. Even her storyline about being left at the altar was made to be about Meredith. Yes, the story has dragged at some points, but the last few episodes have been very good and the ones coming up look to be good as well.

Agreed, total bull. :/ I mean I can understand if Der is more concerned for Cri but at LEAST I would have liked to see SOME scenes where Mer/Der talk about the miscarriage or mourn or hell, just reflect on it! :/ It is not realistic to me at all. If anyone had a miscarriage and their boyfriend/husband knew about it you can't tell me they wouldnt talk to you constantly to make you feel better or comfort you or anything. I doubt they would spend more time comforting and taking care of your best friend instead of you and your loss of both your potential baby. -Exhales-

TOTALLY Agree With user...Total BS, Shonda, Total BS!!

Our lives are built on our mistakes as much as our successes.

They say we can repress our memories. I wonder if we're just keeping them safe somewhere because no matter how painful they are, they are our most valuable possessions. They made us who we are.
