For Owen (Kevin McKidd), meanwhile, the plane crash will trigger his guilt and likely impact his budding romance with Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) — who may not understand his involvement in the crash that also claimed Mark Sloan's (Eric Dane) life. Also poised to learn more about her new sibling is Maggie (Kelly McCreary), who is likely completely in the dark about the trauma Meredith — and Derek — have been through.
"He’s had a bad day that day," McKidd tells THR of the hour that comes immediately after Amelia warned Meredith to back off of her love life. "Owen and Amelia are in a bad place and he is trying to fight for her and in the middle of that this plane crash happens and it really does trigger and upset Owen. He becomes shut off from everybody and he’s very professional but very cold and distant. Nobody — especially Amelia — can figure out where he’s at."
As diehard Grey's fans recall, Owen was the one responsible for putting everyone on the ultimately doomed flight that also left Meredith, Derek (Patrick Dempsey) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) injured.
"By the end of it, he spills the beans to express all the terrible feelings of guilt that he had," McKidd says. "Whenever an event like this happens in the hospital it triggers all that. He feels like the leader of a platoon that let all his men down. It’s a very emotional day for Owen. It’s quite a dark episode for Owen and he doesn’t deal with it well. It sheds light for Owen where thinks he and Amelia are and that conversation doesn’t end well."
