Two things that have been prominent thus far in Grey's Anatomy Season 9 are tragedy and sex … not at the same time. But now that most of the tragedy has passed (we hope), it’s time to continue on with the season of romance. However, everyone hasn’t been as lucky in that department as, say, Richard (James Pickens Jr.) and Catherine (Debbie Allen).

So who will be the next couple to join the romance craze?

Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes recently took to Twitter to talk about one couple, kissing and a lot more.

Shonda tweeted, “GA'ers: There is gonna be some Cristina/Owen kissing. Actually there is gonna be MORE than kissing. We filmed it already. It's coming.”

Considering the last time we saw the couple, Cristina (Sandra Oh) was having boring sex with Dr. Parker in Minnesota and Owen (Kevin McKidd) was moving out to Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) old trailer, this news could not have come at a better time. Maybe Owen won’t grow a beard after all.

Are you surprised to hear that the couple is going to get intimate again later this season? Do you think that’s a good thing? All we know is that the last time they slept together, it ended with Cristina announcing that she was moving, so you won’t catch us getting our hopes up too soon. Then again, we are always down for an Owen Hunt kiss/love scene. If that man knows anything, it is the meaning of passion.

Catch the next new episode of Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, November 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
