We just talked to fan-fave Grey's Anatomy star Kevin McKidd about Owen and Cristina's (Sandra Oh) path for the rest of the season, and there's an unexpected and serious obstacle in the way, and it's not the baby dramz you're expecting.
"[The baby issue] gets put on the backburner," says McKidd. "I think it's something they both realize is a hot-potato subject for each other. They really do love each other, so I think they want to enjoy their honeymoon period, as it were, for as long as they can." But that procreation détente isn't enough to keep perfect peace in the kingdom.
"There's an added complication to the mix between Owen and Cristina that comes from left field in the latter part of the season as well, that isn't connected to babies," McKidd tells us. "A work-related issue comes up that adds tension again to their otherwise happy existence. There something else that comes along to that's a problem to them."
Hmmm… Could Owen and Cristina be in competition somehow, or might this work-related tension be related to the race for chief resident?
McKidd tells us, "There is the element of competition there—she's not in direct competition with Owen, but Owen suddenly finds himself in the line of fire. I'll put it that way. But again that was unexpected I think. So not directly in competition with him but he's very much certainly in the line of fire." Mmmm...
