Cristina and Owen fans, you may want to take a seat. As one of Grey’s Anatomy’s central couples, Cristina and Owen have been through ups and downs over the past few seasons, but there’s one central issue at the heart of the drama — children. Owen wants a family; Cristina doesn’t. Will these two ever come to a compromise?

As it turns out, no, they couldn't. In the final moments of Season 9 (Episode 24: "Perfect Storm"), Cristina asked Owen if she could ever make him truly happy — as happy as she felt in the OR — and let's just say his answer was less than convincing. Knowing that she can never be the one to give him what he wants (a family), Cristina breaks up with Owen. Cue the sobs!

“There’s never been any suggestion that Cristina is going to meet anyone in the middle,” boss lady Shonda Rhimes recently told TVLine. “Cristina is not that person.”

It looks like for those of you hoping Ethan would help the two Grey Sloan Memorial docs see eye-to-eye, think again. “I do think that the more this Ethan situation plays out, the conversation that she and Owen have been avoiding so much really gets forced out into the open,” said Shonda.

Judging by the amount of “emotional death” Shonda told us we could expect in the Season 9 finale, we’re guessing these two might finally be dunzo.

Are you upset with this outcome? And do you think there's any hope left for these two? Sound off in the comments!
