Cristina and Owen's rocky marriage is hanging on by a thread in Thursday's Grey's Anatomy winter premiere.
After two years of turbulent marriage, Owen and Cristina are at the crossroads, when his attorneys send over divorce papers -- forcing the couple to make a final decision about their status as husband and wife -- during Thursday's "Things We Said Today" episode.
"We don't have to do this right now, let's just take a minute and think about what this means," Cristina (Sandra Oh) tells Owen (Kevin McKidd) in the clip, exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, acknowledging that divorce wouldn't have even come up had it not been for the lawsuit against the hospital.
"He's in a corner and he can't get out of it," McKidd recently told The Hollywood Reporter during a recent visit to the Hollywood set of the ABC drama. "It's Owen being honorable and doing the hero thing falling on his own sword to save everybody else but I don't think [Cristina and Owen] are done at all. They've done a lot of damage to each other over the years but they don't want [to divorce]; they love each other."
Check out the clip, above, to see Owen's heartbreaking response to Cristina and hit the comments with your thoughts if you think they'll actually go through with it.
Grey's Anatomy returns Thursday at 9 p.m. on ABC. Stay tuned to THR's The Live Feed for a Grey's postmortem after the episode.
