When Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 ended, our favorite characters were all in vastly different places emotionally. While Meredith and Derek were finally happy after the birth of their baby boy, Bailey, the same couldn’t be said for Owen and Cristina and Callie and Arizona — both couples broke up after a game-changing revelation.
While Cristina and Owen split, it was ultimately to make him happier since she doesn’t want kids, but for Calzona, it was an epic screaming match after Arizona cheated on Callie, bringing up months of pent-up resentment and anger. As a whole, they were in the worst spot, and heading into Season 10, we have no idea what’s in store for them as a couple. Are they getting divorced? Separating? Working things out in couples therapy? That remains to be seen. However, we do have a few things we want for Callie, so that will be our focus this summer as we recover from that emotional fight scene.
Here are three things we want for Callie in Season 10:
Focus on her orthopedic skills. Things are going to be rough for Calzona, so it would be great to see Callie focus in on work and really hone her orthopedic skills. Maybe she could start a trial or do some incredible research, much like when she fixed Derek’s hand after the crash. During the dark Pegasus days in Season 9, she seemed a little lost, so we’d love to see her really rise to the occasion, even if it’s just a distraction from her crumbling relationship.
Don’t shut down and shut people out. We don’t want to see Callie shut out the world and basically shut down after their potential breakup. She could use this time to strengthen her relationship with her fellow attendings — maybe even helping Bailey out of her post-CDC funk.
Take care of herself and baby Sofia. Callie is a great mom, so during this rough patch, seeing her with baby Sofia more would be great, and we also want to make sure she’s taking care of herself. If Sofia is stuck in the middle of two households, that struggle will be interesting to watch play out, and perhaps it will even help her get closer to Meredith, Derek, and their kids.
