How Will Cristina Handle Crash on Grey's Anatomy?

at . Comments

Everyone responds to life-threatening trauma differently.

No one proves this point more than Dr. Cristina Yang.

Grey's Anatomy star Kevin McKidd calls his on-screen wife's actions in early Season 9 "deranged, crazy" and likens her to a "wild animal." Anyone else see an Emmy nomination in Sandra Oh's future?

"Owen's feeling very helpless and very out of control," McKidd tells TV Guide. "It's going to be Owen striving to win her back... they're definitely the damaged couple, but they seem destined to be together."

As for Cristina's best friend?

Meredith Grey deals with the post-crash trauma by throwing herself deeply into her work, according to creator Shonda Rhimes, and that means taking a hard line with the fresh crop of interns.

Prepare for Nazi Meredith.

“I don’t know if she’s angrier or meaner, but she’s a lot more no-nonsense,” explains Rhimes to TV Line. “She doesn’t have a lot of patience for less than perfect. She’s very good at what she does."

"After her experience in the woods, takes saving lives very, very seriously.”

On the flip side, in a future episode, “We sort of build to the idea where Meredith, who tends to clamp down because that’s her way, finally has a moment when she really mourns.”

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.
