'Grey's Anatomy': Caterina Scorsone Opens Up About Amelia and Owen's Rift
The actress talks with THR about Amelia's past resurfacing as well as whether Meredith and Alex are a romantic relationship just waiting to happen.[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Thursday's "Roar" episode of ABC's Grey's Anatomy.]
Amelia's (Caterina Scorsone) deepest, darkest moment is out of the bag on ABC's Grey's Anatomy, only the person who needs to know it the most is not the one who knows her secret.
During Thursday's episode, Amelia — fresh off her pregnancy disappointment — struggles with losing a young patient and suddenly her past comes flooding back.
After believing that she was pregnant in last week's episode of the Shonda Rhimes drama, her patient's death triggers memories of the baby she had during her time in L.A. — the baby boy who was born without a brain that was the direct result of Amelia's struggles with narcotics. The so-called "Unicorn baby" featured on Grey's Anatomy spinoff Private Practice has remained a secret from everyone as Amelia never told Derek or Meredith. Now that secret is starting to come between Amelia and her new husband, Owen (Kevin McKidd), who has made no secret during his time at Grey Sloan that he longs to be a father.
During Thursday's hour, Amelia tells Owen that she wants to wait to have children and focus on being newlyweds. But in reality, she's struggling with her past and holding on to the secret of her Unicorn baby from everyone except one unlikely candidate: Alex. Reeling from the loss of a young patient, Amelia winds up telling Alex everything.
Below, Scorsone talks with THR about why Amelia never told anyone, why she's afraid to open up to Owen and what she thinks of Meredith and Alex as a potential romantic pairing.
