It's finally happening: Burke (Isaiah Washington) is coming back on Grey's Anatomy Season 10, Episode 22 ("We Are Never Getting Back Together"), and he's going to make Cristina (Sandra Oh) a dramatic offer.
What can we expect when Cristina's almost-husband rolls into town? We've taken a closer look at the promo for the episode to see what it reveals:
1. He was the "love of her life"? OK. This bit of voice over doesn't tell us anything about the episode, but we just want to note that we take issue with the idea that Burke is the “love of Cristina's life” — a lot of issue. Though we guess we can buy the idea that she thought he was at the time (or at least tried to convince herself of it). After all, she was planning on marrying him.
2. Burke makes a surprise entrance. At :13 we see Cristina giving some kind of presentation, that Burke walks in on. Based on Cristina's stricken expression at :15, we don't think she expected to see him, so our guess is this is his grand re-entrance.
3. Burke "wants" her. At :18 Burke tells Cristina that he "wants" her. Obviously the promo is trying to make us think he means that romantically, but we think it's just as likely that he's there to offer her a job. We have a hard time believing that Cristina would seriously consider running off with Burke after everything they went through, but taking a job offer from him? Now that's an idea she might entertain.
4. She's not sure. They seem to still be considering Cristina's options in another scene at :21. "I don't know," Cristina says. "All you have to do is say yes," Burke says, rather matter of factly. Again, the tone of this interaction makes us think this offer might be more professional than romantic, but we'll have to wait and see to know for sure.
