Soon thereafter Owen found himself facing yet one more verbal nonsequitur in Dr. Herman's behavior when he followed up with her regarding her further rearrangement of the surgical schedule. He stopped short in his request for her to cease and desist when he realized she had the former couch from the attending surgeon's lounge moved into her office. Owen grew flustered when she flirtatiously suggested they try out together what she called the best couch in the hospital. Dr. Herman quickly let him off the hook yet even in doing so showed us both how much gusto she's putting into living her life and also gave us insight into what it looks like when Owen's off his game.
In what was starting to seem like Owen's day for awkward encounters, he next found himself discussing Dr. Herman's behavior with Amelia. Ever the thorough Chief of Surgery, Owen inquired whether Dr. Herman's cerebral tumor might be impacting her behavior as her disease progressed. What followed was a bit of mostly off their game information gathering about each other that had the two of them discussing Dr. Herman's joking offer to Owen and whether or not dating coworkers was allowed. At the end of the conversation they both appeared thoughtful and a fair bit flustered.
By the end of the day things were looking up for Owen who received a surprise visit at the trailer from Amelia. She mumbled her way through presenting him with a bottle of sparkling water in place of the wine she doesn't drink anymore before declaring she had no game and turning to go back to Meredith's house. Owen stopped her before announcing he was going to kiss her and then did just that.
