How Will Cristina Handle Crash on Grey's Anatomy?

by 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.”

If Sandra Oh doesn't get an emmy this season...I might flip a couch. That woman is beyond AMAZING and it really dumbfounds me to know that she hasn't won one yet. SMH. Excited for this season though!!! I can't wait to see what happens!

We saw how she handled a shooting. I think we know what to expect from her after a plane going down; PTSD.

Just thinking about it...
But i think that Nazi Meredith "she takes saving lives very very seriously" is happening due to what happened to Lexie..
And Cristina.. what can i say??
I'm so super duper cannot be expressed excited

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
