Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: "Uphill Battle" For Cristina & Owen, Alex & Everyone Else

at . Comments

Don't expect smooth sailing ahead for Cristina and Owen on Grey's Anatomy this season. Same goes for Alex and ... anyone else at Seattle Grace hospital.

The sinkhole the doctors are battling in the Season 8 premiere makes a nice metaphor for Christina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd), E! Online says:

"It's not going to be easy for them. It's more than a bump [in the road]. It's kind of a sinkhole, actually," McKidd muses. "They're really hitting it hard."

"He wants kids, she absolutely does not. It's not going to be pretty."

McKidd says Grey's Anatomy fans will get answers - one way or the other - to the Cristina baby cliffhanger that the Season 7 finale left us with all summer:

"In the season premiere there will be a resolution to all of that in a quite unexpected way. It resolves, and then you think it's put to bed, but it isn't."

Speaking of unresolved issues, where do we even begin with Alex?

Don't hold your breath for Meredith to forgive him within the first few scenes of the season premiere, despite his attempts to climb back into her good graces.

"He's got to work his way back into the trust of his friends," Justin Chambers says, adding that it'll be hard. "Meredith will hopefully forgive him. I think she will."

In the meantime, his status as a social pariah has a silver lining.

"I think he's going to apply himself a lot more this year because, frankly, he's not going to have much of a personal life," Chambers says. "He's done with the relationship thing for a while, with what happened with Lucy."

It will be hard to get past what he did, but "Since no one wants to talk to him because he's a rat, so he's going to concentrate on being a better doctor."

I completely agree with Dexter Idolizer.
They should've talked before getting married. Children are not something you can reach a compromise on unless you're debating the number of children you both want. Cristina doesn't want kids. She's either going to have the abortion or she's going to have the baby and tell Owen he's on his own. I can actually see the later happening...with perhaps a twist where she loses the child & is happy while Owen is depressed. Either way, Cristina is not built for motherhood & to do that to her character would be ridiculous. I'd stop watching.


I'd hate it if Christina was just carrying this child for Owen!If she really don't want this baby she shoudn't have it! Don't ever change who you are for a man!But I think in the end she might want the baby for herself and and then I'm happy=)


Well,I dnt get y dereks angry god she did something for some1 else something good he should be happy nd he's her husband for god sake they hust adopted an injured kid that needs two parents not one I think there ganna work it out for the baby nd owen nd cristina he wants a baby she dnt they just need to talk it out cuz she xarnt get rid of two babies
Alex I love nd I feel sorry for him he never gets a happy ending i think that's what he needs .


OKAY SO Cristina and Owen BETTER have that baby, and Omg MerDer had to many off and on fights they should just get back together and live life. CRISTINA NEEDS TO BE PREGNANT.. idk where the story is going if she doesnt keep this baby..unless she has another pregnancy problem??? WHO KNOWS?


I love CrOwen's wedding photo,so sweet!! looking at Cristina's face,I'm sure she'll keep this baby


i know since season 1 that cristina didnt want no kids when she got pregnant with burke he broke up with her but they was not really together and she didnt tell him cause she only knew him for somedays or weeks but she is married to owen so she has to really think and go and talk with him and not just deciede from the top of her head that is just mean and i better see callie enough cause i love callie.i have a 2 week baby ( not mine) but he will not shutup omg and im only 14.


Think need to find the rubber mallet and or maybe do what my parents threatened i'll ya heads together and knock some sense into you all.
Alex: Drunken Rat
Owen: Sinkhole romance
Derek: Send to anger management ok maybe not that harsh go build ya house cos i want it finished too.

I hope everything works out for Alex too. He just told the truth, and now suddenly nobody wants to be around him? I bet some characters will at least understand why he told on Meredith and appreciate his honesty.


"Uphill battle" sounds almost like "mortal combat". Hope that spanks are not included.

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.
