Recently, Kevin McKidd spoke to Entertainment Weekly about what Owen's life as the big boss will be like in upcoming episodes
"There's a lot of stress in his life," Kevin explained (understatement, much?), "so he's trying not to let that affect his efficiency as the Chief ... He's just trying to keep his head up and keep going forward."
And, of course he has to "make his recommendation as Chief, so it’ll be interesting to see who he recommends for what."
What we're interested to know is what he recommends Cristina for. Or will he have to find someone else to write her recommendation? They're technically still married, so that seems like a huge conflict of interest.
