After a prolonged breakup with Cristina, Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) will be really and truly on the market during Grey's Anatomy Season 11. Meanwhile, Derek's sis and one-time Private Practice regular Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) is sticking around in a major role — and she's also single and ready to mingle. Obvious conclusion? We have a possible romance on our hands. So, will we be seeing Owen and Amelia get, um, close this season?
According to TVLine, the answer is probably! According to TVLine, "Rumor has it sparks will indeed fly between Owen and Amelia."
Of course, as anyone who has watched Grey's Anatomy knows, sparks don't always equal long-term potential at Grey Sloan Memorial. Still, we think Owen and Amelia are a potentially interesting pairing; they're both very damaged people who are still learning to overcome their hangups. Maybe they can help each other grow. Though we wonder what an Owen and Amelia romance would mean for Owen and Derek's sometimes bromance. Would it bring them closer, or would Derek tell Owen to stay away?
Whatever happens between her and Owen, it sounds like Amelia will have a lot to do now that she's a series regular. Apparently she'll also overhear Richard (James Pickens Jr.) revealing a secret — is it Maggie (Kelly McCreary)? We bet it's Maggie — while at an AA meeting, which means she'll suddenly be at the center of drama at her new hospital.
