‘Grey’s Anatomy’ season 9 spoilers: Moving past the affair

Back when Owen admitted to Cristina on “Grey’s Anatomy” that he had been unfaithful to her, we did not think that there was any way in which he was going to be able to come back from that. After all, Sandra Oh’s character made it clear that she did not want anything to do with him anymore, and in her eyes it really did not matter at all if he had cheated once, or it was something that had happened on multiple occasions.

However, the plane crash that took Lexie’s life (and possible others, depending on if Mark and Arizona survive) is going to have an impact on more than just Meredith. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly in a new interview, here is what Kevin McKidd had to say about how the tragedy that happened out in the middle of the woods, and how even without Owen being present there, his life is still set to change:

“I think we’ve kind of blown past that in a way because the cataclysmic events of what happened, especially everything with Cristina. It’s going to come back and affect Owen as well — even though he wasn’t on the plane. In retrospect, it’s going to come back and really affect him in a big way too and in a way that we don’t expect.”

Even though McKidd does not necessarily say by any means that Cristina and Owen are going to be back together, you can really read between the lines here well enough to know that the two are going to at least be on somewhat better terms moving forward.
