Original story (12:32 p.m. ET): The Grey's Anatomy Season 10 finale is still a month away, but we have our first spoiler about Cristina's exit — and it's a doozy. She seems to be saying goodbye to Owen and leaving for Europe! (Or, at least, she's preparing to…)
Ever since Sandra Oh announced back in August that this season would be her last, we've been wondering how Shonda Rhimes and her fellow Grey's producers would write such a legendary character out of the show.
Now, thanks to an Instagram pic by Grey's guest star Kunal Kumar, we have a snippet of a Cristina-Owen scene from the May 15 episode — Season 10, Episode 24. (And he also posted a photo of himself with Sandra on the set, so we are pretty sure it's legit.)
And ignore the big Sharpie'd X — that just means that the actor whose script it is isn't in that particular scene.
In the script, we see that Cristina says, "My phone is dead. Oh, and I need a European charger. And I need more luggage." (See? She's Europe-bound.)
Owen (Kevin McKidd) tries to slow her down, but she's a woman on a mission. "Now I have to go to the stupid mall," she tells him. "I'll see you later."
But don't fret too much, Crowen fans. Cristina kisses the hunky redhead on the way out. (It's also possible that Owen is moving with her or that she is just going on a vacay.)
We also now know Cristina is the one who gets the voiceover honors for the finale. And though this part of the script is obscured by Kunal's Disney ID, we can see some words: "The point is, we never … kind of a day is…"
Considering how spoiler-phobic the Grey's producers are, we expect Shonda & Co. to force this Instagram offline in 3… 2… 1…
What do you think of this reveal? Will Cristina actually follow through with her trip? Is this just a red herring? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
