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

by 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!

I think Shonda is desperate to let all the Crowen fans know she is going to get this couple together again. Owen will have to be willing to say that he'd rather be with Cris, than without her and he'll not push Cris to have a baby. Let's have more than Crowen doing the romance please. I want Merder to be included in the romance too This is a spoiler,yet in other ways Shonda has been so reticient about Calazona and Mark. I've just read we won't be seeing any sneaks peaks or new scenes in the run up to S9 which is what I've been so looking forward to.

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."

Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
