Meredith Grey and Cristina Yang are the peanut butter and jelly of Grey’s Anatomy, and fans miss the pairing, but are there clues out there that Sandra Oh (Cristina Yang) has been seen on-set of Grey’s Anatomy, and keeps close touch with Ellen Pompeo (Meredith) and Kevin McKidd (Owen). Whether you are bingeing, watching Grey’s Anatomy Season 12 online this summer, or just looking forward to Grey’s Season 13, Shonda Rhimes might be cooking up some surprises.
Another Grey’s Anatomy/Cristina Yang clue comes by the way of Dr. Owen Hunt (played by Kevin McKidd, who says that Cristina Yang has been back to Grey’s Anatomy, but fans might not have noticed. Fans of Grey’s believed that there was no way that Cristina Yang would abandon Meredith Grey after Derek died, and they were right. In stills of the funeral scene, Grey’s fans can see Dr. Cristina Yang from the back, standing at the grave with Meredith Grey. McKidd explains that the brief glimpse of Cristina was meant to imply that yes, Cristina is still Meredith’s person.
Grey’s Anatomy 12 left fans with many questions, like what would Dr. Cristina Yang think of Owen remarrying? And were Meredith’s allegiances tested when her sister-in-law Amelia marries her best friend and number one person’s former husband Owen? Meredith surely struggled with this. Kevin McKidd explains that Meredith became Owen’s guardian angel after Cristina left Grey-Sloan and went to Zurich, and Meredith also feels protective of Amelia.
“She still feels like she’s Owen’s guardian, and she takes that role very seriously. She still has that allegiance to Cristina, so she has some issues with [the marriage].”
Add in Meredith’s life as a widowed mother, and Grey-Sloan responsibilities, and Meredith doesn’t need to pile on Cristina’s worries, but she does anyway.
“And she also has her own issues with Amelia, so there’s some friction between them.”
But many fans truly thought that Cristina Yang would crash, or at least make an appearance at Owen and Amelia’s wedding on the Grey’s Anatomy finale. Though Cristina did not physically make an appearance, she was there is spirit, as Meredith represented Cristina’s concerns. While Meredith was torn, she said to Amelia, “tell me what you want to do.” Meredith was ready to help Amelia do a runner, and leave Owen at the altar.
But that was then, and this is now on Grey’s Anatomy, where the cast is back on set for Grey’s Anatomy season 13. But on social media, photos of Sandra Oh and the Grey’s cast have started showing up, and they look as chummy as ever. Does Shonda Rhimes have a plan for Cristina to join Meredith, even just for a few days?
So far, Shonda Rhimes has been even more tight-lipped than usual on the set of Grey’s Anatomy Season 13. Rhimes did post a photo of the first Grey’s table read, but all other details are on lockdown.
But on Twitter, Sandra Oh aka Cristina Yang, @IamSandraOh, can be seen posting cheeky comments about her “husband,” Owen (Kevin McKidd).
And in her best Cristina Yang voice, Sandra Oh speaks out to Owen directly.
