Cristina And Jackson Sitting In A Tree...

Kristin from E! has some more details on the Cristina/Jackson hookup from this promo from tonight's episode of Grey's Anatomy:

Sorry, Cristina-Owen fans, but tonight's scandalous sweeps episode of Grey's Anatomy is going to be a little rough on you.

As the Canadian promo for tonight's episode teases, Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) is going to be cheating on Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) with the "Hotness Monster" himself, Mercy Wester Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams). The hookup goes down against the backdrop of a huge pediatric case led by our girl-crush Arizona Robbins (breakout star Jessica Capshaw).

We've interrogated both Jessica and Jesse exclusively to find what goes down tonight, and it sounds like it's exactly the kind of major relationship trouble you "Crowen" fans have been fearing...

Jessica Capshaw, who calls tonight's Arizona-centric tearjerker episode an "amazing opportunity" for her as an actress, says the Cristina-Owen sideshow is also pretty spectacular: "I think [the makeout session] is gonna be really hot and really provocative. This show is really great at creating conflict, and it's really great at telling a story and sort of giving an alternate universe where if we acted on all our impulses what we might do." Awww, Cristina. We thought you had more self-control. Blergh. (P.S. Jessica did give us a tiny bit of hope for you Crowen partisans when she told us that the mood on the set during the makeout scene was more silly and goofy than hot and that's something, right?)

OK, so the makeout session is real. But what does it mean? Jesse Williams (a sweet young actor who clearly has his head on straight) tells us that, "The meaning will be left open to interpretation after tonight's episode, but I think it's a combination of a couple things. There's competition between Cristina and Jackson, but there's an attraction that's both physical and out of respect for her style, her swagger, her adventurousness and her kind of no-apologies approach. I think we have that in common."

So could this attraction turn into something long-term? Says Jesse, "I don't know where it's going to lead. As it stands, it's going to be unresolved. It's not over. And I think that Jackson is not as in the loop as the audience is in terms of Cristina being with Owen. He doesn't know what he's walking into. He might be a little more ambitious that he should be."

And for those of you hoping Jackson's "Mercy Wester" status will automatically put him in peril and will doom him to leave the show sooner rather than later, hold those horses. Jesse says there is every possibility of one or more of the Mercy Westers sticking around: "I think we were brought in for a reason. It creates some new tension and drama and excitement from the outside as opposed to what's happening on the inside. I would be very surprised if we didn't stick around in some form or fashion."

Sounds like the triangle between Cristina, Owen and Jackson is closer to a beginning than it is to an end. Eeek.

According to Jessica, "Tonight harkens back to when I first came on to do about three episodes, and in the second episode it became quickly revealed that when you are a doctor who works only with children, there is a very delicate balance to pay attention to with regard to how much you get invested. It's life and death for anyone, but somehow because children are so vulnerable when something bad happens to them, more when they're sick, it's just so much more heartbreaking. You get to see again how much she cares and how much she takes initiative to help each child as they need to be helped, as opposed to thrusting herself upon them."

The big medical crisis splits the team in two, which is how Jackson and Cristina end up working together. As Jessica explains it, "The episode starts basically in the very wee hours of the morning. There are two cases coming into the ER. One of them is Arizona's, and one of them is Callie's. And then they respectively enlist doctors to help them—Owen with Callie and Karev with me, and so on."

So what do you guys think? Can you Crowen fans stay loyal to your pairing through this hiccup, or are you too brokenhearted to go on? (Plus, be sure to check back on Monday for more from Jessica and Jesse in the Spoiler Chat!)

This makes me sad and I totally don't want to give up on Owen and Cristina cause I LOVE them, but seriously how much more can they stand! Owen gets Cristina and Cristina gets Owen so I don't know why the writers want to mess with them so much and they all know how much we Love Owen and Cristina so WHY do this to the fans!!!! I don't like Jackson, I mean yeah hes hot but thats about it Owen is sexy hot and a GREAT guy!! Please stop messing with Cristina and Owen or Greys is going to drop in ratings big time because if Cristina and Owen break up I am done so done with this show I almost gave up when Burke left but I hung on till season 5 and season five was fabulous, but now season 6 season sucks and I think this will be the last thing that makes alot of fans turn their back on Greys! especially the Cristina fans that have watched since the begining! and I totally LOVE Sandra Oh she is amazing, but I just don't think I could watch Cristina and Owen hate each other like remember when they broke up for that little bit of time?! that was torture I just wanted them together and finally in the finale they were but now again Shonda just has to go and mess with them! Leave our fav couple alone please!!! lol

It's time to give Christina a handsome guy already, like Jackson. They're perfect match, both are charismatic, mean to work, amitious, funny, smart, ironic, full of charm... I can't see any potential in Hunt, really he doesn't suit to Christina. I can't stand to see him. Hunt just take Teddy and bye.
