Grey's Anatomy Forecast: Will Arizona and Callie Stay Together?

at . Comments

With just days before Grey's Anatomy Season 11 kicks off (in an earlier timeslot, take note!), creator Shonda Rhimes has given fans of one major couple reason to worry.

Following Arizona’s infidelity - along with the twosome's separation when Arizona left for Africa years ago... and Callie's pregnancy... and Callie's car accident... and Arizona losing her leg... - it's safe for long-time viewers to wonder:

What does the future hold for Calzona?

“I’ll be honest with you and say that there is literally a 50/50 chance that they’ll be together or apart, and I have not figured it out yet,” Rhimes tells Entertainment Weekly. 

Callie and Arizona on Season 11 - Grey's Anatomy

The uber producer said a lot of Grey's Anatomy Season 11 will focus on Meredith and Derek, along with the absence of Cristina, but she hasn't forgotten Callie and Arizona.

Not by a long shot.

“That is the other big storyline of the season for us," Rhimes says. "We really spent a lot of time in the writers’ room mapping it out and talking about it. There are two parallel relationships: Meredith and Derek’s relationship and Callie and Arizona’s relationship. Meredith’s journey and Callie’s journey are two big journeys that we really want to look at this season as we’re telling these stories."

Can Rhimes give any hint at all in regard to which direction she's leaning for the couple? Not really.

"I really want to see Arizona beaming again and I really want to see Callie happy again," she says.

What say YOU, TV Fanatics? Has this couple's time come? Or are there more stories to tell with these two together?

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."

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."
