Meredith's (Ellen Pompeo) peppy persona -- she winds up engaged to Alex! (Justin Chambers) -- also creates a ripple effect for those around her, with the openly gay Callie (Sara Ramirez), having never met Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith), instead married to Owen (Kevin McKidd). 
"They're two people who have no business being together," Rhimes says. "He's pining for somebody else [and] she's having all these unexplained feelings for Arizona [...]." 
While Ramirez tells THR that the duo winds up married with children -- something Cristina is dead-set against -- she notes that the hour really is about not really being able to change your destiny, no matter what decisions you make. 
"There are certain things that will find you in this journey of life no matter what choices you make, no matter what road you go down," Ramirez says. "Sometimes it won't make that much of a difference because your destiny will find you no matter what." 
Ramirez notes Callie's place in the Seattle Grace hierarchy -- and relationship with Ellis -- will create a different dynamic for between Callie, Cristina and Meredith, who views her as someone she could learn from. 
Meanwhile, Ramirez teases that Cristina (Sandra Oh) is "just a runt for Callie" and while she's respected, Callie has surpassed her to be an amazing cardio surgeon and attending. 
"She has no real interest in her other than her abilities," she says. "If she can save a life, great, get her in my OR, but other than that, Callie doesn't really get her."
