When Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 ended, so did Cristina and Owen’s relationship. After countless breakups and makeups, they were seemingly done for good, but in true Shonda Rhimes fashion, there’s more to the story.
"Should we hold out for Owen and Cristina being a couple? I don't know anymore," star Kevin McKidd admitted to The Hollywood Reporter, though he quickly cleared up those comments with spoilery intel.
Season 10 brings a new chapter in the “Crowen” relationship, in which they will still be attracted to each other and want to be together, but Cristina will actually help Owen find his “person.” His wingman, if you will.
"She's going to be helping him navigate new waters, trying to find a person who's going to be the person who has a kid with him,” Kevin teased. “She's definitely encouraging him. He's definitely going to explore how he's going to construct a world and a life to become a father, and Cristina is trying to encourage him.”
While Owen tried to bury his need to have a child and just focus on his relationship, ultimately it didn’t work, but it was their most “adult” breakup to date. “The sad fact is this breakup is the first time they've broken up in an adult way and for an adult reason, ever,” Kevin added. “She's seen what he needs and is ready to give it to him, and sadly that means breaking apart."
But, of course, they won’t be completely broken apart for long. Owen will try to win Cristina back, but the question remains if she’ll let it happen, or if they’ll just end up hooking up again. (Kevin added that the “chemistry still burns” between them in the first few episodes.)
"I definitely think we'll see him try to get her back, but I think he realizes that maybe she's right. Maybe what she's doing here, even though it's heartbreaking, is the most loving act that she can do," Kevin revealed. "It's scary because potentially these two people are going to be alone in the world, so I hate to say this because I feel like Cristina/Owen fans feel suicidal, but I don't think it's the end of the relationship between Cristina and Owen."
We don’t know what to think at this point. We’d love them together, but honestly, we just want them to decide already instead of jerking us around. What do you think, Grey’s fans? Should they stay broken up or try to make things work? Sound off below.
