With Grey's Anatomy’s Season 9 being labeled the “season of romance,” we’re not surprised that Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) will find a way back to each other. But that definitely doesn’t mean that the couple will be picture perfect. Then again, have they ever been?

So after they overcome everything that has happened with infidelity, a plane crash and a brief psychotic break, what will be the one thing that continues to haunt them?

One word: children.

TVLine spoke to Kevin about Owen’s desire for a baby. “That’s a fundamental thing. It’s in his DNA. He wants to be a dad. I don’t know how [they overcome that]… It’s going to be a tough road. I enjoyed last season watching their decline. But my hope as a fan is that they make it back to each other,” Kevin said.

We hope so too, Kev. But do you guys think it’s possible to overcome something this big if neither of them changes his or her mind? Will they come back together only to separate again, possibly for good?

Someone is going to have to budge for this to work, right? Who do you think it will be?

Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, October 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
