Grey's Anatomy fans may have been caught up with the whole proposal that Derek (Patrick Dempsey) had been so slow in cooking up for his Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and the similarly slow unfolding of Izzie's (Katherine Heigl) true condition. As all these are happening, however, Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) have been cozy, starting with the overt flirting and the slight brushing of hands in the hospital halls.
Teeny spoiler ahead.
An episode featuring someone from Owen's past, however, showed that Owen has some baggage of his own. A disturbance was seen in the so-far smooth Owen-Cristina waters. Bolstering this claim is a report by Entertainment Weekly that Owen's post-traumatic stress disorder courtesy of his old job will take a turn for the worse as Owen will end up physically hurting Cristina. Don't fret, however, as it is reportedly an unintentional hit. Regardless, though, Cristina just doesn't seem like the type to let any guy hurt her physically.
