Cristina And Teddy Plus One

As you know by now, Sandra rarely talks about Grey's Anatomy, but her co-stars often do. Here is a brand new interview with her latest co-star Kim Raver, who has just become series regular, who talks about working with Sandra and Grey's latest romantic ménage a trois:

"Yes, yes and yes!"

This is how Kim Raver answered a certain burning question regarding her romantic status on Grey's Anatomy, but then promptly cut herself off.

"Wait, hold on! Was I supposed to say that? Let me check my notes!" she said with a laugh. (You gotta love the candor.)

I just got off the phone with the always charming Kim—who was just upped to series regular status, hurrah!—and she dished on what's next for Teddy and even answered your fan questions directly.

So what was she (possibly) not supposed to say?

Teddy is definitely still in love with Owen.

Now, naturally, this may seem to be bad news for you fans of Cristina [Sandra Oh] and Owen [Kevin McKidd], but au contraire, tubaires! As you may have noticed in recent episodes, there is much more to this "love triangle" dynamic than first met the eye, and Kim insists Teddy is not a homewrecker.

"I think [Teddy] is still in love with [Owen]," Kim said. "But what's so great about Teddy, and for the fans, is she knew Owen was engaged while they were in Iraq, and she never did anything, and that's what I think is so amazing about her. She's not going to start doing that kind of thing now. Then on top of it, she has such enormous respect for Cristina because she's so good, and she's also her mentor. So while I think she's still in love with Owen, she's going to have to figure out how to deal with that."

Karen: If Cristina and Owen are moving on with their relationship, is Teddy going to still be a threat to them romantically? Professionally, will she be able to put her feelings aside and be a good mentor for Cristina?
What's also interesting is not just [Teddy] being in love with Owen, but how she sees Cristina being her mentor, and that relationship really evolves, and I just love it. I love working with Sandra, as well as Kevin and the rest of the cast, but Sandra and I have this cool, interesting dynamic, and I know how much the fans just love and adore Cristina and how Sandra plays this character. There's an interesting chemistry between the two of our characters, too.

Teresa: We Grey's fans can be passionate when it comes to Cristina and Owen. Were you worried about how you would be received?
Yes! I was really afraid of that because I think there's a really great dynamic between Cristina and Owen. But most of the feedback has been, "Wow, we're really glad to see that it's not what I thought!" I think they sense that I'm not there to break up [Cristina and Owen's] relationship, but that it will get more complicated, more complex. I think Shonda and the rest of the writing staff do a great job at having her be more than just an ex-girlfriend coming in.

And a spoiler tidbit:

Donna: Scoop! Now! On Grey's Anatomy please...preferably Owen and Cristina?
How about Cristina and Teddy? Don't worry, they aren't resurrecting the foiled plan from years ago I hinted at that Cristina (Sandra Oh) would be bisexual, but it sure sounds like Teddy and Cristina will have lots of fun stuff coming up. Kim Raver tells me, "There's an interesting scene where Teddy drunkenly reveals things about Cristina to Owen, and that's really fun. It was so great that they had her drunk, and Teddy just goes on and on and on. It was interesting."
