Save the Date: Calzona to Wed May 5 on Grey's Anatomy!

by at . Comments

Wedding bells will be ringing in Seattle this spring.

Following a heartbreaking, emotional Grey's Anatomy musical episode, Callie and Arizona will get married in an outdoor ceremony in the May 5 episode.

According to TV Guide, Calzona's wedding will be officiated by none other than Dr. Miranda Bailey. Chandra Wilson also serves as the episode's director.

The show is off until April 28, when four new episodes air to close out the seventh season. In the second of those four, these two will tie the knot ...

Hot GA Couple

Callie and Arizona have seen their ups and downs this season, beginning with the planned to move to Africa so that Dr. Robbins could work on her grant.

After Callie expressed doubts about leaving Seattle, Arizona left her behind ... but didn't last long abroad. What a surprise awaited her upon her return.

"I honestly didn't know if they were going to make it through that," Ramirez said of Callie's pregnancy with Mark's baby, which posed a host of problems.

"But I think that through the writing of Arizona's character, who just continues to fight for what she wants, the persistence pays off. At the end of the day, Callie realizes who she is and the life that she's chosen with Arizona is worth fighting for."

As for Arizona quickly coming around to the tri-parenting arrangement?

Jessica Capshaw attributes that to "the love that's there between them."

"Probably the baby did hurry things along a little bit, but the question that Arizona asks Callie about getting married is born, pun intended, out of not knowing what her place is and not feeling legitimate. Because Arizona is the one that saves the baby, I think that legitimizes them more than anything, but who doesn't like a good wedding?"

Executive producer Shonda Rhimes says she was "excited" not just for the characters, but about portraying a same-sex marriage on TV and "dealing with the fact that it's not legal and it's not necessarily recognized by a church or by the state."

"We wanted to deal with that in a way that felt relevant and real, but also allow them a really magical wedding," she says.

"It's incredibly positive," Capshaw adds. "The whole thing that I like about the episode is that it's not politicized. It's about two people falling in love and taking the step that solidifies and legitimizes them in their minds and community."

The episode will be jam-packed, Capshaw continues.

"It takes us from soup to nuts, as far as the wedding goes. Teddy and Arizona have a conversation where she says, 'You're the calmest bride I've ever seen.' It's like, yeah, we go from a makeshift rehearsal dinner to brideapalooza in 42 minutes! There's a lot that happens."

Also appearing in the episode: the families of the two doctors.

Judith Ivey and Denis Arndt come on as Barbara and Col. Robbins, Arizona's folks, while Hector Elizondo returns as Carlos Torres and Gina Gallego will play Callie's mother.

"There has been a lot of family conflict that's come up for Callie," Ramirez says, recalling when Callie's father brought a priest to Seattle Grace to encourage her to date men before agreeing to a truce. "When you look at the bigger picture, I know that there are some folks out there who will really appreciate seeing how all of this develops with the wedding, and seeing how one or two particular characters deal with family members who may not really accept what you're choosing."

Lo que empezó como un gran acierto y super exitazo se ha transformado en una porquería.
El último capítulo de la serie en la 7a. temporada fue de lo sublime a lo altamente ridículo, inicia con la tragedia del accidente de Arizona y Callie, pero fue inverosímil la ocurrencia de que cuando le están sacando el bebé a Dra. Torres que se encuentra en estado crítico, de repente los doctores empiezan a cantar, ¡no puede ser!, se supone que hay sufrimiento, desesperanza y los doctores están cantando POR CIERTO MUY MAL TODOS, TO-DOS.
Con seguridad Shonda Rimes ya no sabe como sobreexplotar esta serie y a los personajes desgastados y cada vez mas desangelados, sustituyeron a grandes personajes con blandengues monigotes que a la historia ya no aportan nada nuevo, sacaron a George O'Malie y metieron a un pelele que se quiere ligar a la interna, que no tiene que ver nada con que sea guapo o no, o alto; sino que no es nada, no es inteligente, no es simpático, NO TIENE ANGEL. y así el nuevo novio de la Nazi, etc.
En fin el capitulo TAC de la séptima temporada fue para los premios "lo mas ridículo, cursi Y MAL HECHO de la televisión" yo por lo pronto me surré de la risa de ver tanta tontería.
PD. Por cierto también ninguno de los actores se amarró los pantalones y le dijo a la directora que estaba contratado para actuar y no para cantar. Por que se no nota que ninguno sabe hacerlo.

For all the haters! On Tuesday 5th April 2011, @shondarhimes said: Isn't love universal? Isn't that the point? That you can watch a straight couple in love or a lesbian couple in love and what you see and feel is the LOVE? How is that pandering? Maybe I've been pandering to straight couples all this time. Another thing: one of the reasons I cast the show the way I did is because I like to turn on the TV and see people who look like me living in a world of diversity. I'm betting there's a lesbian girl out there who likes to turn on the TV and see people who love like her too. So, you know, yeah I just went all ranty, but come on. Love is universal. Life is universal. Grow up and stop complaining and stop hating on a storyline because the characters are different from you. Because THAT? Is ridiculous.

well.ididnt imagine reading all these religious stuff, it is weird coz the whole show is full of sins. iam nt a Christian and in my religion homosexuality is a sin, iam straight and iam not a GAY/LES supporter and i dont get the idea of their marriage in the first place, no legal rigts and no fetility issue, but it is a show after all!!
and iam a huge fan of Callie, AZ and Mark, id have been happier if Mark was the groom, but to be honest Callie and AZ are so so so so so cute,,, i was like "will i handle 2 women's marriage", but when i saw he picture God they r so damn cute.
but what actually feels not right to me is that they r both so girly even Callie who looks tough.
anyway for those who said lesbian kisses, ithink callie and AZ rarely kiss or have any hot scenes, idont thnk they will be more in the coming epi especially if the baby survived coz Mark will be around 24/7,
looking 4ward to stop calling her a baby, iwant a nice name for my favorite baby on TV.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
