You can ask all the questions you want — but that doesn’t mean you’re going to like the answers you’ll get. That’s exactly what happened to Cristina during this week’s new episode of Grey’s Anatomy, “Support System,” which found the doctor grilling her husband about the one-night stand he had. “I want to know every detail,” Cristina told Owen, as the two of them holed up in their apartment — they told everyone at Seattle Grace they had the “flu” — to try to hash out what was happening between them. “You want to fix this? I want to know what happened.”
Well, she — and we — found out. Here’s what went down in a nutshell: After he and Cristina had quit their couples therapy in the aftermath of the abortion, Owen met a woman in the hospital who was connected to a case. After a day of saving the friend of said woman — Owen claims he couldn’t even remember her name — he grabbed a drink with her. They drank a lot, and then they walked out of the bar together, and she pleaded with him to kiss her. But I’m married, he explained. She didn’t care. “So kiss me anyway. So…kiss me anyway.” She said that several times.
After hearing all of this, Cristina blew out of control and flung herself on the couple’s bed, rather understandably. Then she locked herself in the bathroom, and just as Owen was about to break down the door to get to her, she opened it and he went careening into the bathroom, which caused Cristina to go into a hysterical fit of laughter. “I am supposed to be studying for my boards, the most important exam of my life,” she said to him, “and I’m locked in a bathroom crying because of a boy!” It alternately seems silly and not silly, when you really think about it.
