Grey's Anatomy Spoilers: Return of the "Old Cristina"?

at . Comments

Cristina and Owen have been heading down a dark road for weeks on Grey's Anatomy, and according to new intel, the couple's issues will continue impair Dr. Yang during her upcoming medical boards.

However, the exams will also offer a chance for the vintage Cristina to reemerge.

"Honestly, she's kind of distracted because of what's going on between she and Owen, but handles the boards seriously in classic fashion," the amazing Sandra Oh told TV Guide earlier this week.

"People will be quite happy with seeing Cristina back to form. I call that episode 'Hoisting Oneself on One's Own Petard.' It's really funny." Make of that what you will ... and celebrate on cue.

Speaking of the all-important medical boards, one of the original interns apparently will be suffering a stress-induced, spontaneous medical emergency while taking them. And it looks like that person is Mer.

“Meredith has a big crisis ... a huge obstacle that interferes in her taking the boards,” Ellen Pompeo told TV Line, “[and] Derek just has to support her through that.”

Finally, the mysterious character that guest star Jordan Belfi will be playing in two May episodes a patient who needs surgery, and an old friend of one of the characters, according to Shonda Rhimes.

Bring back the Christina who collects magazines and never has time to read them, the one who doesn't wash clothes--just buys more. Return to the laser surgical-focus that refueses to give herself away any more! Isn't that what she told Owen when she once ignored a page from Altman? Reclaim the character and leave the season open-ended and true to the Yang character!

I miss Cristina. Glad to hear she is back with that competitive streak of hers.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
