‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 12 Finale: Details on Owen & Amelia’s Wedding


We called it — this week’s episode of Grey's Anatomy Season 12 did indeed end with a proposal between Owen and Amelia.

We didn’t expect her to do the proposing, though! And if there was any uncertainty about how Owen would respond, ABC’s promo for the May 19 season finale made it clear: he said yes!

“It does [seem fast], and it doesn’t,” Owen portrayer Kevin McKidd tells Entertainment Weekly in a post-episode discussion.

That makes it sound like they definitely get married next week… so why do we see Amelia with abnormally cold feet in that ABC promo?

“The specter of Cristina is one of the things that’s a big spoke in the wheel for Amelia’s crisis of conscience on her wedding day,” Kevin says.

Meredith has some feelings that are ambivalent, because Meredith is very proud and a mama bear. She was asked by Cristina to be Owen’s protector. She has her issues with Amelia. Meredith and her have a huge blowout on the wedding day.”

So those are Meredith’s problems, but what about Amelia’s other roomie? Kelly McCreary tells EW Maggie is initially bummed — only because she’ll miss living with Amelia — but eventually comes around.

“Maggie is really in a place where she’s ready to be in love, likes being around it, likes talking about it, so she’s all for the wedding,” Kelly says.

So Maggie is fully supportive, and Meredith has her usual dark and twisty angst, and Amelia will have to navigate the two.

“Amelia is a rabbit in headlights and eventually makes a decision … after a really great turn in the story where she decides what she wants,” Kevin adds in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

See if they do indeed swap vows when the Grey’s Anatomy Season 12 finale airs Thursday, May 19, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
