Since Grey's Anatomy's resident dysfunctional couple is currently happy, someone clearly has to take their place right? After all, this isn't Grey's Anatomy if there isn't at least one issue-laden couple. Let's do a quick head count. Meredith and Derek - happy; Alex and Izzie - tough love happy; Sloan and Lexie - weird, but happy; Cristina and Owen - wait.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Grey's Anatomy is throwing a wrench at the so-far improving Cristina and Owen pairing in the person of 24's Kim Raver. Jack Bauer's ex is set to play a new surgeon and potentially a new love interest for Owen starting episode 9, which airs November 12. With the Seattle Grace-Mercy West merger upon us, it's not clear if she'll be with either hospital.
McKidd has previously alerted Grey's
fans that something / someone will definitely come in the way of his relationship with Cristina but it will be worth it in the long run.
"Someone comes to the hospital that he was connected to in his past, not his ex-fiance, but it's somebody we didn't expect. I think it could get a little tricky, but exciting and interesting. Hopefully it will bring [Owen and Cristina] closer in the long run."
No respite for the wicked, as they say. No respite for the wicked.
