Cristina and Owen struck us as soulmates, but now that they've broken up, can they stay that way? And will they abstain from further breakup sex?
At the cast party celebrating the show's 200th episode, Sandra Oh and Kevin McKidd told The Hollywood Reporter that this landmark episode — also known as Season, 10 Episode 4, "Puttin' on the Ritz" — will bring revelatory developments for both parties.
"[Cristina] gets a glimpse of the impact of her decision," Sandra stated. "She'll get a glimpse of what it is and have to continue holding fast to that decision and being supportive of each other." (Could that glimpse be named Leah Murphy?)
Kevin teased that Cristina and Owen will do their best to keep their relationship strictly professional for a few episodes.
"How long that lasts, I don't know," he said, adding that the forced separation is difficult for Owen. "I still think Owen is reluctant; he doesn't want this … [He] can't quite handle it yet. But he's trying to be a guy about it and is being all chiefly about it and cool."
He also expressed his hope that the Grey's writers would milk the awkwardness of Owen's return to the dating pool: "For a middle-aged guy like Owen, there's a lot of comedy potential for that."
And when Owen does move on, Cristina may be an emotional wildcard. "You think she'll react one way and she reacts in exactly the opposite way," Kevin explained.
