What’s Ahead for Cristina and Owen?

Just having some fun. Feel free to stare...and drool... (Credit for screencaps used goes to In_The_After.)

So, this is something new.  I’m not doing an episode analysis.  Instead, I want to ask all of you, the people who actually read this blog (thanks, by the way), what you think is ahead for Cristina and Owen?  I don’t mean anything that’s been in the spoilers (not that there has been anything about where their relationship is headed), but just what your “gut” is telling you.  (Brownie point for whoever can tell me what episode I’m referencing there.)

We have 9 episodes left.  What do you think will happen for our couple?  Go crazy.  Speculate.  And let’s see how on the money we were at season’s end.  Comment away!

Gone Away

So, as expected, “Time Warp” didn’t give us much Cristina/Owen.  Any, you say?  Well, you would be surprised where a hardcore Coconut can find Cristina/Owen loving and sexyness.  Proof?  A screencap of it, let’s say?  Fair enough…

Oh yeah. So. Happened. (credit for screencap / hilarity goes to WeLoveCrowen on Twitter)

So there you have it.  Our darling Cristina and Owen have entered the deep, dark world of sexting.  I will also point out that Krista Vernoff (executive producer and writer for Grey’s Anatomy) basically said, “hey, why not?” when a fan tweeted her about the fact that Cristina and Owen were sexting during the lecture series.  So there you have it!

As for the rest of the episode, I really liked the Richard/Ellis flashback.   I really liked Sarah Paulson (young Ellis), but casting award of the year goes to whoever found J. August Richards to play the Chief.  Just freakin’ perfect.  And the music!  Playing “Maneater” (by Hall & Oates) during the introduction of Ellis was just fantastic.  Same for “Our Lips Are Sealed” by the GoGos.  It all just got me in the old-school mood for the episode.  Very cute.  I had a huge geeky smile on my face.  Also, I can’t believe it had never occurred to me that the fact that they were both seen as outcasts for different reasons (race, gender) would cause them to be close in the first place.  Very interesting…and oh my god, little Meredith was SO CUTE.  So so so cute.  Her little red shoes and big jacket and carrying Anatomy Jane around?  Just so adorable and seeing Ellis just push her away to Thatcher just gave you some more insight as to why Meredith was so messed up for so long.  And that last scene where we see that Ellis was the one that first got Richard to drink (heavily, I guess, since he mentioned not liking the taste).  Very sad…and a scene full of so much implication.  While I don’t want this every week, it was cool to see.

I also thought Callie being terrified of the crowd was sweet.  It was interesting when juxtaposed with how badass and outgoing she was in her flashback (same goes, in reverse, for Bailey’s).  Because of spoilers, I had figured out that there would be a shot of Callie and Alex hooking up.  It was odd seeing her right before her Grey’s entrance but she looked EXACTLY the same.  Well done them!

Wasn’t a big fan of the Bailey flashback because…while I know it isn’t necessarily a popular standpoint, I just don’t like her.  I like her a little more in the first 2 seasons, but in general just not a fan.  I won’t get too in depth with it, but I guess it was funny to see that Bailey wasn’t always yelling at people.

Overall, it was sad to have an episode without a major Cristina/Owen scene.  But I have faith that we have some good, hot, sexy, and cute stuff coming up–call me crazy!  However, I am going to be unable to update this blog for the next 5 weeks.  By the looks of things, that will only be two episode (6×16 “Perfect Little Accident” and 6×17 “Push”).  I will be back the weekend after 6×18 “Suicide is Painless”, so thank goodness for that.  A girl can only last so long without her fix, am I right?  Well, thank you for reading…and have a fantastic month to come.  Catch you on the flip side! 😉

A “Time Warp” Without Dan Vasser? What?

If you don’t get the reference in the title, let me clarify: Dan Vasser was the time-traveling character that Kevin McKidd – whom we know and love as Owen Hunt on Grey’s Anatomy – played in Journeyman.  And if it weren’t for the writers’ strike that caused his show to get canceled, we would have never had Kevin McKidd as Owen Hunt.  In fact, Cristina’s love interest would have been played by Joshua Jackson of The Mighty Ducks and Dawson’s Creek fame.  Just a little fun tidbit about Owen Hunt and Kevin McKidd to get things started since we did not see him in this episode.  (And thus, the reason why I don’t have the usual episode collage at the top.)

So, what is there to discuss when we’re missing half of our couple?  Well, our couple, that’s what.  How?  Just read on and see…

Up the Hill Backwards

So after last week’s heavy Cristina/Owen sexy screentime, I wasn’t expecting much.  I mean, when I first heard that there was going to be a C/O & MerDer double date, I was very excited…but after I heard that it gets interrupted, I figured that we might be on the low end tonight  But what can you do?  I can go with quality versus quantity tonight.  And in my opinion, the implications of this episode are very good for us Cristina/Owen lovers!

Maybe if he those that sexy eyebrow arch enough he will actually manage to convince Cristina that there is life outside of the hospital (credit for screencap goes to freaky_x).

Our first shot is the Fab 4 on their way to their double date.  Clearly Derek and Owen are more into it than the Twisted Sisters (kinda adorable how the guys and girls said things at the same time—“it’s Valentine’s Day!” vs. “we don’t do Valentine’s Day!”).  Cristina is seriously jonesin’ for some surgery, per usual, and starts tweaking out when she sees an ambulance drive by.  Owen basically tries to tell both ladies to chill out, but as they see more and more ambulances pass, the guys worry that they’re going to get paged.  Right on that one!  Time to go back to the hospital (at the relief and excitement of both Mer and Cristina).

Her boyfriend might be super scorchingly hot, but Cristina still doesn't do Valentine's day. (credit for screencap goes to freaky_x)

Once we see Derek and Owen come in through the ambulance bay, it was time for me to swoon.  Owen was looking fiiiine in his date outfit and then being all kinds of kickass trauma surgeon-in-charge was hot.  Continue reading

“Valentine’s Day Massacre” for Some, Not for Others

Happy Valentine's Day to Cristina and Owen...kinda. (Credit for screencaps used goes to freaky_x.)

Ahh…Valentine’s Day.  The day of romance and flowers and chocolates.  But that’s for the normal folks – the ones not in Seattle Grace.  For our doctors, we’ve got carnage and misplaced body parts…and bikini wax.

So, it wasn’t the type of Valentine’s Day episode that we may have wished for our couple.  No prolonged romantic evening, no elaborate date, no sweet gestures of commitment.  But that wasn’t really what this episode was about.  And in a way, we should take it as a good sign that our couple wasn’t one of the primary focuses in this episode.  The theme of this episode was about adapting and changing.  Lexie needed to learn to love herself and have a voice.  Mark needed to adapt to the fact that he wasn’t going to get his dream family with a daughter and granddaughter.  Teddy needed to adapt to the present and learn to move forward.  Meredith needed to learn about what a marriage really is.  But for our couple, they have already learned their lesson and subsequently changed in last week’s episode, during “State of Love and Trust.”  Cristina opened up about herself to let Owen in, and Owen learned who the “real” Cristina was – and loves her all the more because of it.

Cristina and Owen are in a good place now.  They are stronger than ever.  And Cristina loves Owen so much that she is willing to go on a double date with Meredith and Derek.  The fact that the “twisted sisters” agreed to the double date shows how far they’ve come since the beginning of the series in respect to being in romantic relationships.  Both of them have a fear that being with these men and being in love with them will somehow make them lose a part of themselves.  Although Cristina and Owen dealt with this issue in the previous episode, Meredith and Derek hadn’t – thus why we see Meredith being the one on the married woman’s case and not Cristina.  Meredith needs to hear the message that the woman’s story line represents, not Cristina.

Trust Me, I’m A Doctor

So for all that whining (which I’m sure I participated in more than I’m proud), we Coconuts finally got our super sexy hotness.  Not once, not twice, but THREE times.  And the cherry on that sundae?  We got a deep, emotional Burke conversation.  Okay, I’m getting ahead of myself.  Basically, I was blown away and I had trouble processing just how awesome it was.  The 2+ feet of snow that shut down my power over the weekend didn’t help with getting this blog out in time either, so pardon my tardiness.

Now we start off with a bang (literally—hee!).  Sherrie can attest to the fact that the only thing I could manage to text her with that first scene, only a minute in, was “holy shit!”.  Seriously.  Owen’s all sweaty and these two…my goodness, the way they’re panting and thrusting and staring into each other’s eyes like that?  And Owen has sweat on his forehead (clearly this has been going on for a while), they’re both completely out of breath, you can hear Owen grunt right after he flips her on her back, and his eyes get all half-lidded and sexy when he’s looking at her.  Can you tell I’ve watched this a couple times? Oh yeah.  They have such good chemistry.  And I can tell right now that this recap is going to be so much more gushy fan-girl than it usually is (and that’s saying something!), but anyway…we see that Cristina and Owen are “getting along” as Owen later says.  And I love that the song that’s playing (“Bang Bang” by Melanie Fiona); it’s playful and sexy, just like Cristina/Owen at the moment.  We’ll see how long that lasts…

I don't know how to caption this...except holy shit, this was hot! (credit for screencap goes to freaky_x.)

“State of Love and Trust” And Ridiculously Hot Sex

An epic episode for Cristina and Owen -- screen time and content wise. (Credit for screencaps used goes to freaky_x.)

Warning: This post is ridiculously long because there was just so much stuff to discuss.  Read at your own risk!

Holy shit.  Please excuse my French (though, in French, it’d be something more like “putain fais chier” — now, really, excuse my French) but those were the two most uttered words last night from Cristina and Owen fans alike.  Even all us self-professed spoiler whores did not see this coming.  We got the hint from Shonda that there was “so much Cristina and Owen sex,” but holy cow, I didn’t realize that we had been such good Coconuts or inmates to get Christmas in February.  Thank you, Santa Shonda and Stacy McKee (who, by the way, is a total Cristina/Owen fan and thus an honorary coconut).

Not only was there an abundance of hot, hot sex (as the title of this blog alludes to), but there was a major step in the right direction for Cristina and Owen as a couple.  Kevin McKidd kept his promise: Cristina and Owen are a stronger couple because of this “love” triangle.  In this episode, Cristina and Owen’s relationship really exemplified the title theme of love and trust — and of course, insanely hot sexual chemistry that set millions of television sets on fire.  Not to mention the libidos of women across the country (perhaps even world) who tuned in for this aptly rated S episode (and that’s S for Seriously Hot Sex).

But I digress.  Let’s see if I can stop re-watching these scenes long enough to actually put in some analysis instead of mere drooling, sighing, or squeeing…
