Cristina (Sandra Oh) is currently having a tough time on Grey's Anatomy. Her marriage with Owen (Kevin McKidd) is coming apart at the seams, and meanwhile the career-driven doc is about to have to decide where to go once she finishes her residency.

Showrunner Shonda Rhimes recently dished to TV Guide about what's coming up for Cristina in the rest of the season.

"Cristina is very gifted and a lot of people are going to want her," Shonda said. This will affect her husband and her mentor, Teddy (Kim Raver). "For both Teddy and Owen, there's going to be some struggle there in terms of letting go. Or if you can let go or if you should let go."

As for her marriage, well..."Cristina will eventually have to decide what's going to happen in the relationship versus what she wants in her career," Shonda explained.

Why can't she just have it all, Shonda? Why!? 

Grey’s Anatomy returns with an all-new episode on Thursday, April 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
