Grey's Anatomy Scoop: Hope For Owen & Cristina?

at . Comments

One way to look at the future of Grey's Anatomy's Cristina and Owen is that it's going to get worse before it gets better. Another way to look at it is that ... it probably will get better eventually.

If you're a fan of the two together, that's got to be somewhat encouraging. Right?

“Initially, it’s going to be very unsettling,” executive producer and show creator Shonda Rhimes teases of the couple’s trajectory in the upcoming Grey's Anatomy Season 9, which begins next Thursday.

“Then it’s going to get fairly romantic as we watch them find their way back to one another.”

Attractive, Talented Wife

Rhimes reiterates that any road to reconciliation will be a bumpy one for the couple.

“There are the aftereffects of the plane crash,” she says.

“There’s still his cheating. Also, he still wants a family and she still doesn’t. That is a huge obstacle for a couple. I’d like to explore what happens when two people want fundamentally different things."

Explaining how she crafted their storyline, she adds, "I didn’t want them to just walk away from each other. I felt like a lot of couples would fight to be together and figure out how to do it.”

How do you see things playing out for them this fall? Discuss!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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.
