We need to talk about Grey’s Anatomy. Specifically, we need to talk about how even now — a full month after the season finale — I still can’t get onto a small plane without breaking into a panicked cold sweat. But as I deal with my issues in therapy, actor Kevin McKidd hopes the tragedy of the plane crash opens up Owen and Cristina (Sandra Oh) to a little healing of their own.
“I think the plane crash changes the landscape dramatically,” he says. “I’m interested to see where they’re at. Owen wants to win her heart back, and I would imagine he’s going to do everything in his power to do that. Again, it’s so interesting the way the writers write such amazing storylines, so I can’t say that’s what’s going to happen but that would be my wish. I hope he’s her rock and fights for her.”
But that’s usually easier said than done when it comes to Cristina, he admits. Though, there’s always a chance that her (600th) brush with death could leave her open to things that she wasn’t open to before — like a baby. “I think that might be in the cards, but you never can tell. I think it’s going to still be a long road for them, but I hope they are now on a healing path.”
Meanwhile, with Teddy gone, Owen will have one less person to lean on when it comes to his embattled marriage, and McKidd says the loss of Kim Raver also left him reeling off-screen. “It was heartbreaking for me personally because Kim Raver and I are very very good friends,” he says. “So that was a tough, juicy scene to shoot. I think it’s been a very intense, emotional time for us on the show. But I think it was a really beautifully executed finale. I think it went out on a limb and it turned beautifully.”
