Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona's (Jessica Capshaw) life was finally perfect at the end of Grey's Anatomy Season 8, and then the stupid plane crash had to go and ruin everything.
How will one of Grey's most popular couples hold up in Season 9? We've rounded up all of the juiciest Calzona spoilers for the new season to help see you through the rest of the summer hiatus.

Does Arizona live? This is the number one question on Calzona fans' minds. Showrunner Shonda Rhimes has remained very tight-lipped about Arizona's fate, and Jessica Capshaw has described her character as in "bad, bad, bad, bad shape." However, Shonda has also said she's keeping quiet about what happens to Arizona because she wants fans to go on Arizona's "journey" unspoiled, and this photo Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt) tweeted from Episode 4 suggests Arizona is alive. Many fans suspect she'll lose her leg and/or be confined to a wheelchair.
Arizona's journey and Callie. Whatever happens to Arizona will have a "huge" impact on Callie, and we can expect to see a lot of Callie this season — Shonda has said "there's a lot of story to be told there."
Callie's new friend. Meanwhile, Callie will have a new friend: Derek (Patrick Dempsey)! The pair will bond over the "shared experience" of the crash (and perhaps losing Mark?), and Callie will also work on fixing Derek's injured hand. In this sneak peek of the premiere (Season 9, Episode 1: "Going, Going, Gone"), we get a hint at what their relationship dynamic will be.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 9 will premiere on Thursday, September 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
