Grey's Anatomy not only ended with some of the characters' fates uncertain, it also ended with couples split and their future yet to be determined. Is there hope for Cristina and Owen in season 9?
Grey's Season 9 Spoilers
Kevin McKidd recently talked to Access Hollywood about Grey's and whether he thinks Cristina will live through the aftermath of the plane crash: "I hope she does. If she does, I'm sure Owen will be parachuting in there to pull her out." Cristina did seem to be the least injured after the crash, as her shoulder was dislocated, but Mark did pop it back into place. However, they're out of foodÂ—she and Meredith split a piece of gum as the finale endedÂ—and anything can happen when Grey's Anatomy season 9 premieres.
Arizona and Mark did seem to be the most seriously injured of the survivors, and since Shonda Rhimes has pointed out that someone else could die other than Lexie, it does seem likely that if someone does, it's one of them. After all, Sandra Oh, Ellen Pompeo, and Patrick Dempsey recently signed on for two more seasons. It wasn't until the end of the finale that Owen even learned that the doctors never made it to Boise. Who knows what they'll find when they finally send out a search party for the doctors?
When they do find them and bring tem home, it does seem likely that Cristina, assuming she survives, and the others will be sticking around in Seattle rather than leaving it behind for other hospitals. Does that mean that there could be a reunion in Cristina and Owen's future?
According to McKidd, "I think they're gonna be OK. Nobody's telling me, but I do think they're the most complicated, in a way, of the couples, and the most tortured of the couples a lot of the time. On paper, they shouldn't work as a couple, and that's what I love about how they've written Cristina and Owen Â— that they really get inside the heads of these two characters and sort of go, 'Why are these people even together?' And when they are, there's a chemistry there that seems to work. And they struggle on... And I do think they're going to be happy and good for each other." After what Cristina's been through, it could cause her to reevaluate her life and perhaps slowly let Owen back in. It may take time if it happens, but it wouldn't really be surprising if they did get back together by the end of season 9.
