Season seven is here! And the blog is back up and running. Hopefully, people still care enough to read this…
No, you’re not dreaming. Cristina and Owen really got married (and legally – sorry, Meredith/Derek fans, couldn’t resist). They got engaged, they planned the wedding, and they walked down the aisle. Three out of three – one more than Burke and Cristina (and the most important one, really).
When I first heard about this, my jaw obviously hit the floor – followed quickly by the rest of me. Could it be? Could something this good really happen for us? There had to be a twist, right? But there was no twist. (At least, not really.) Cristina and Owen really got married. Maybe it’s not at the most opportune of times (which I’ll go into later), but they went through with it. Owen and Cristina are officially husband and wife. And you can bet that there were a gazillion squees around the world at that bit of news.
Shonda called the Cristina and Owen wedding an “award” for fan loyalty – all fans – but we know that it’s mostly us, the Cristina and Owen fans. We were put through hell the season before, what with the disjointed and frustrating storylines that came in the shape of the merger and Teddy. (And this grievance is compounded upon with the fact that we were supposed to have a Cristina and Owen baby storyline – which I totally called, by the way – instead. Damn Shonda and whatever vision she got that caused her to change her mind. But I think, in the end, we will appreciate the fact that marriage came first because it sets up any potential baby storyline that may be in the works to be less angst-ridden and more joyful.) And yet, we held on. Because we love this couple – and sometimes, we all love the show.
Anyway, back to the episode. And as usual, in the order that they appeared onscreen (not chronologically). Continue reading
