Can you say bromance? Owen and Derek will be doing some serious male bonding on Grey's Anatomy this fall, with the surgeons turning to one another in time of need.
"Derek and Owen are dealing with the twisted sisters - Meredith and Cristina - who are very connected and very similar in a way," Kevin McKidd tells TV Guide.
"So, they try to get away from the women a bit more."
What does time away from the women entail for these two?
"Owen starts helping Derek build his house, so they bond over that and the manliness of being outdoors and carrying wheelbarrows full of rocks," McKidd says.
"It's a way for both of them to decompress from all the pressure."
Considering he's going to be the new chief of surgery on top of dealing with the fallout from Cristina's decision - whatever it might be - decompressing will be much needed.
