Cristina/Owen: And So It Is..

Same, same but different.

Grey's Anatomy executive producer Betsy Beers on Cristina and Owen's relationship post-abortion in an interview with THR:

[Spoiler alert]

Owen (Kevin McKidd) taking Cristina (Sandra Oh) for an abortion won’t be the end of the couple’s problems on Grey’s Anatomy but only the beginning, executive producer Betsy Beers warns.

The couple traditionally has had their fair share of issues – where they were going to live, their views on children – but Cristina’s abortion won’t erase the problems that have cropped up for the couple.

“Their relationship is definitely in transition and [how the abortion impacts them is] going to be a focus,” Beers tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Beers notes that the abortion, which Cristina decided without consulting Owen, will bring into focus the other problems that exist between the couple.

“How they agree, how they disagree, what works, what doesn’t work: [the abortion is] more a manifestation of those issues,” she says. “There have always been ongoing things between Cristina and Owen, clearly this is another one. But this is one more thing that’s contributing to can Cristina and Owen keep it going.”

Am I glad I started reading this post by laughing at the text on that great picture :-))) since Betsy Beers doesn't really sound optimistic about C/O, does she? My humble opinion is though that, as long as both actors remain on the show, they won't let C/O go through a divorce. It's much more interesting to show them in love and trying to cope with their clashing personalities, than just give them up. They (...and we) are lucky they have two very talented actors with an amazing chemistry who can pull this off.

I agree with Emma. The way Owen and Cristina 'love story' has been written, they have to work this out.

Kevin and Sandra breathe life into their characters, with their performances. I can't wait to watch them showcase their skill this season.
