After seven years apart, Cristina (Sandra Oh) is coming face to face with the man who broke her heart all those many seasons ago in next week's episode of Grey's AnatomySeason 10, Episode 22: "We Are Never Getting Back Together" — airing May 1.

And we gotta say: Burke (Isaiah Washington) is sort of annoying in this sneak peek!

Cristina is giving a lecture about her 3D-printed conduit — full of medical-babble, of course — and taking questions from the audience.

"I have a question," says someone in a shadowy, high row of the auditorium.

Cristina turns, clearly recognizing the voice, but then composes herself — perhaps not believing that her ex-fiancé could be so theatrical.


Shadow-Burke then asks a series of clarifying questions about Cristina's conduit, saying phrases like "obviating the need for serial operations."

Yeah, OK, buddy. You know your SAT vocab. We get it. And there are, like, 27 less-pretentious ways you could have said that.

And really, did ya need to spend that much time in the shadows? Did ya need to rise and walk down the steps so agonizingly slowly? You even nod at the end of the clip, as if to say, "That's right. I'm back."

At this rate, we're pretty much 100 percent Team Owen!

Grey's Anatomy Season 10, Episode 22 — "We Are Never Getting Back Together" — airs Thursday, May 1, at 9 p.m. ET.
