Is there a hope for Cristina and Owen following the “Grey’s Anatomy” season 9 finale? If you go just from the standpoint of where the two are now, there may actually be a part of you that hopes that if the couple does choose to end things, they do so now rather than try to keep a charade going. After all, this was not a screaming-your-face-off fight that we saw. Instead, it was Cristina recognizing that Owen wants something that she is not interesting in giving him, and thus she believes that it may be better for her at the end of the day to just let the man go.
As for whether or not this is really the end, you should know better than that. After all, Kevin McKidd tells TV Guide in a new interview that he still thinks that these two on / off / on-again / off-again people can find a way to make this work:
“I doubt [this is the end] because whether they ever are together again, there’s so much connection and history between them that they’re always going to have some kind of relationship. It’s almost like people who are parents, if they break up, they’ll always be connected by that thing. Owen and Cristina have been through so much that those things will never go away. I know Owen is going to feel a lot of yearning and be heartbroken for quite some time. The sad fact is that Owen and Cristina are in a good place. I don’t think it’s the end for them, it’s just another turn in their very complicated relationship. In a strange way, this is Cristina showing how much she cares for this guy.”
McKidd says that he already knows some elements of season 10?s story, and the two will not be completely over. As to how it manifests itself, that is one of approximately a billion questions that we have to ask ourselves right about now.
I’ve added over 2,000 screencaps from last night’s Season 9 finale episode. What did you guys think? I know I was on the edge of my seat the entire episode and trying to hold back tears almost every 5 minutes…. HOwever, I am glad it wasn’t as catastrophic as previous finales have been, but I’m sure the beginning of next season we may get hit by a bus… Damn you Shonda!
So, the Season 9 finale was last night. If you missed it, don’t forget to watch it! This was one of my favorite season finales from the show. It was drama-packed and kept me on the edge of my seat as well as bringing the tears, but most of the time, it was happy tears! I was nervous the entire episode because, face it, Shonda loves to torture us Grey’s fans!
What did you guys think of the finale?
This isn’t old news, but yes, Grey’s Anatomy fans, the show will be back next fall for Season 10! It didn’t come as too much of a shocker because the actors still had season 10 in their contract, but let’s hope they just keep on going! We’ve been told that the season finale of season 9 won’t be as catastrophic as the plane crash was, but someone will still be “fighting for their life”. Let’s hope they win that fight–we don’t want anyone leaving the show!!
What about the interns? There’s been a lot of mixed feelings towards them… a lot of people don’t like them at all. What do you guys think? If only one intern returns in season 10, it will most likely be Jo, played by Camilla Luddington. Here’s what’s been said about her possible return and the finale:
Though the focus of our nervousness is on Meredith, Derek, and their unborn son, we also know that “someone fights for their life,” and we should worry about the person delivering MerDer’s baby. Shane is the intern shown in the promo, but we’re most concerned about Jo, who was recently a victim of domestic abuse and may or may not be secretly in love with Alex Karev.
While Camilla was tight-lipped about Thursday’s finale during her appearance on CBS’ The Couch, she says that there is “chaos” and that since everyone has to unite during the power outage, she and Alex are “kind of forced to be together.” As for Season 10? She’s as in the dark as we are (pun intended).
When asked about her return, she admitted, “That’s not something they have confirmed to us.” adding, “I will be baking cookies for Shonda Rhimes all through the summer to make sure it happens, but we’ll see. Hopefully.”
