Despite having her groundbreaking stem cell research to work on with Teddy’s (Kim Raver) supervision, Cristina was the epitome of anti-social. She hadn’t even told her “person,” Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), about the affair, and she was completely despondent while working in the lab solo. She visibly shuddered when Lexie (Chyler Leigh) started happily fantasizing about ridiculous love nonsense, and couldn’t bear the presence of Lex, Alex (Justin Chambers), and Jackson (Jesse Williams) for more than one tense minute.
We know from the preview of this week’s episode (Season 8, Episode 19: “Support System”) that Cristina and Owen will finally go at it, exchanging fiery remarks and accusations in their bedroom (what better location to rehash an affair?) as Cristina breaks down her emotional walls.
The question is, should this couple just call it quits? Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes has said she has no intention of breaking these two up, but putting Shonda’s opinion aside, would you break up with Owen if he cheated on you? If it was “just sex”?
