Even though the “Grey’s Anatomy” finale on May 16 is still over a week away, Shonda Rhimes has managed to already give fans of Callie and Arizona some serious reasons to shake in their boots. Why? Thank Hilarie Burton. The “White Collar” actress’ recent run as Lauren has created the speculation that there could be some trouble in paradise coming up. Has there been any real cheating yet between Lauren and Arizona? No, but there has been some flirty behavior, and one thing can certainly lead to another. Of course, the sad thing is that Callie has tried to be so patient with Arizona ever since the plane crash.
As you would expect, Rhimes was coy in a recent interview with TVLine on the subject of what could be coming up for the pair, but she certainly left the door open for a Calzona cheating scandal to be one of the main ingredients of what is sure to be a very emotional finale coming up:
“We’re equal opportunity over here at Grey’s Anatomy … Straight people have their cheating moments all of the time. We’ve created this relationship that’s very interesting and complex, and I feel like we’re at a moment where this [temptation] feels earned. We’re doing something that feels very in keeping with what’s right for these characters.”
Ultimately, this is a scandal that we hope does not happen, and not necessarily because we think that Calzona should be immune or are any more sacred than any other couple that has been on the show as of late. Instead, this road has just been traveled down before, and it starts to become uncomfortable when the assumption is made that so many couples have cheating moments during their lives.
What do you think: Is it possible that Burton’s character could throw a massive wrench into the system? If you want to hear even more news on a possible “emotional” death that takes place during the “Grey’s Anatomy” finale, just be sure to check out the story over at the link here.
