Is Kevin McKidd leaving Grey’s Anatomy? Did Owen die in crossover?

Grey's Anatomy, OwenIs Kevin McKidd leaving Grey’s Anatomyand is his character of Dr. Owen Hunt dead? The Grey’s Anatomy crossover promised answers. Of course, whether or not we’d actually get said answers was a totally different story.

Entering the crossover, the only thing we could say with confidence was that the jury was still out in regards to Owen’s fate. There was no definite news that McKidd (a longtime actor and sometimes director) would be leaving the show. We do think Owen brings a lot of value to this world, and it would also be especially tragic to lose the character now right when he and Teddy were starting to get to a much better place.

We didn’t expect that there would be a lot of answers coming early on in the crossover; after all, it’d be a pretty-big bummer if the fate of Owen was revealed on Station 19, especially since not everyone out there watches both of these shows. We just want Owen to be okay; there doesn’t need to be a rule that every show in this universe needs to kill a character on a year-to-year basis in order for them to be compelling.

Of course, it goes without saying that this situation developed as the story went on. Entering Grey’s Anatomy, we knew that Owen was still alive; however, he was far from out oof the woods. He did recover eventually, but there was another surprise elsewhere…

The bad news

Tonight’s story was more or less a classic bait-and-switch. As we report over here, Richard Flood is leaving the show after tonight, as his character of Cormac Hayes opted to leave.

In the end, we’ll see what happens with Owen — it could take some time for him to recover.
