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.

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

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.

Meredith

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
