It Could Be The End Of Cristina And Owen As We Know It

If we were to make a list of the most popular topics here on Sandra Oh News, anything to do with Cristina and Owen on Grey's Anatomy would be in the top 5. Things have been looking gloomy for this couple for a while though, and for fans hoping for a happily ever after, Sandra Oh revealed in an interview with TV Guide - who met up with her at a benefit yesterday - that she doesn't see much hope for the couple at the moment.

In the interview Sandra Oh gave her thoughts on the ongoing Cristina/Owen storyline, actress Mariska Hargitay and her foundation The Joyful Heart which helps sexual assault victims, and its connection to an upcoming storyline on Grey's:

"It's just sad and hard right now," Oh told TV Guide Magazine at Sunday's L.A. benefit for Mariska Hargitay's Joyful Heart Foundation which supports survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse. "If there's [hope], I can't see it right now."

In the episode that aired Feb. 23, Cristina started to suspect that Owen was having an affair, and those suspicions will continue in the March 15 episode, "One Step Too Far."

"What I really am happy with, is that a dissolution of a relationship — if it is a dissolution — takes a long time and is painful. We're spending time with them, seeing it happen," says Oh. "And not quickly, but painfully, day by day."

"It's real, it's messy and it's also why we root for them so much," adds costar Kim Raver.
Oh also says that the subject of sexual assault will come up in an future episode, and the entire cast will be involved. "We're dealing with a very dramatic side of this issue," she says. "I really admire Mariska and her work, not only on her show and the influence and the impact that she has on the show for this work, but it translates also in our work on Grey's Anatomy."

"It touches all of us, even if we don't know that it does," adds Raver. "I think the fact that we're discussing it is the first step to aiding it."

Did Sandra Oh just crush your hopes, dear Cristina/Owen peeps?
