Is there a future between Callie and Arizona? During the two-hour premiere for “Grey’s Anatomy” season 10 last night, it certainly did not look good for them for the vast majority of the time. Callie moved out of their home, and while she did not take everything with her, she did bring her daughter along for the ride and seems desperate to get as much distance as humanly possible.
So what does the woman responsible for being front and center in the madness have to say about it? Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter in a new interview, Sara Ramirez explains that her character is rightfully upset over what has happened, and she is desperate now to try and find her way to deal with it while also taking on a myriad of other stresses and complications:
“Callie decides she needs space and she can’t deal with all of these feelings. She’s reactive and acting out, and part of the way that she finds solace is to move out of their apartment. Initially, she’s looking to get some space and to breathe because she’s dealing with her own emotions and reactions to what happened. She’s dealing with Arizona trying to engage her about it. In the midst of work and the other stresses the last thing she needs is to have somebody over her shoulder wanting to engage about it.”
On the Arizona side, Jessica Capshaw makes it very clear that fans should understand that what we’re looking at here is a marathon. These two are not going to get better overnight, and nothing is even really guaranteed to ever be the same for them again:
“This is a long road and who knows where it’s going to end up. In understanding why Arizona did what she did, she might be coming to a place in understanding herself in a way that maybe Callie might not want to be with her — or Arizona might not want to be with Callie. When something like this happens, it’s not like she didn’t take out the trash; she slept with someone else. It’s as big as it gets and they have to now figure out what that means.”
What we can say for now is simple: This is far from over. You can read more about the drama between them here, where it also turns out is where you can watch the first video preview for the episode.
