Someone's gettin' hitched and I know who! And here's the best news: Soon you will, too.
That's right. I didn't forget, and our fun little game of guessing which TV couple will be getting married continues with the final two contenders: Which TV Couple
* Sarah and Chuck, Chuck * Cristina and Owen, Grey's Anatomy
That means so far I have eliminated:
* Sookie and Bill, True Blood * Brooke and Julian, One Tree Hill * House and Cuddy, House * Will and Emma, Glee * Chuck and Blair, Gossip Girl (stay tuned for major scoop on them in today's Spoiler Chat!) * Lois and Clark, Smallville * And now...Michael and Holly, The Office
Now, that doesn't mean that Michael and Holly won't be getting hitched before Steve Carell's final season is over. The jury's still out on that.
Now mark your day planners and/or Trapper Keepers. (What? Is that reference outdated?) You will get the real couple who is getting married tomorrow morning at noon ET/9 a.m. PT. Stand by!
Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey share a kiss for a scene in an upcoming episode of Grey’s Anatomy in Los Angeles on Monday (August 30).
The 40-year-old actress made a phone call in between takes.
Ellen recently told TV Guide that her character, Meredith, takes on a bit of a different role for the beginning of this coming season.
“The role that they have given Meredith is to take care of everybody and to try to make sure that everybody else is OK,” Ellen shared. “She’s the role of the caretaker, which, I guess, is her way of not dealing with her own thing.”
Grey’s Anatomy returns to NBC on Thursday, September 23 at 9/8c.
Gina in Australia: Is Leven Rambin (Sloane) coming back to Grey's Anatomy? We chatted up Leven at the Kari Feinstein Gift Lounge this weekend and though she said her "lips were zipped," her eyes at the HBO Emmy party (OK, fine, I was talking to her!) sure said yes. When asked which Grey's guy she'd love to hook up with, she told me: "Is it weird to say my dad? 'Cause I do love Eric Dane." Then she laughed. "Yeah, yeah, that is weird. Let's go with Alex. That would be a good fit!" She's also happy her character didn't show up in the latest shoot-out season finale. "Sloane probably would have just used someone as a human shield."
Cristina and Owen are the couple, "surprise surprise".
Plus question/answer by Kevin.
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the upcoming season of Grey's Anatomy.]
With less than a month until the Season 7 premiere of Grey's Anatomy, we can finally reveal that Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd) are the two docs getting married in the season finale.
How many new docs will scrub into Grey's? Zero, says Rhimes
How will this change the dynamic of their relationship? Where will they live? Can this rushed marriage survive? And what about Teddy (Kim Raver)? Kevin McKidd, one half of the married-couple-to-be, gives TVGuide.com all the dish and more:
TVGuide.com: Let's start with the big question: How does Owen propose to Cristina? McKidd: It's quite a shocker. It's definitely an unexpected proposal. There is definitely one knee involved, but there's more to it than that. It's a funny scene because we see it as a flashback. The proposal comes out of something that we didn't expect. The proposal is not over some candlelight dinner.
TVGuide.com: When did you find out that Owen and Cristina were getting married, and how did you feel about it? McKidd: I had been on a movie during hiatus, so I came back the day of the table read and a props master came up and said, "I have to measure your ring finger," before we did the read. I said, "Why?" and she said, "Because you're getting married in the first episode!" So she kind of let the cat out of the bag. Everyone else was pretty surprised, but I already knew. It's kind of a shocker. I think people are going to be taken aback by it.
Grey's Anatomy's Ellen Pompeo: Meredith becomes the caretaker in Season 7
TVGuide.com: Is this a rushed wedding because of what happened in the finale? McKidd: People who have been through cataclysmic events, it does change people and make them realize what matters in life. It crystallizes relationships and can be the catalyst for people to take a big step in their relationship. It will be interesting to find out whether that was the right or the wrong step and what that means for Cristina and Owen going forward. Did they rush into it? Did they do it for the wrong reasons? I think they didn't do it for the wrong reasons, but all those questions will be asked.
TVGuide.com: How does Cristina change because of the finale and the subsequent engagement? McKidd: She's displacing all of her anxiety and focusing it into that one thing that she can plan for and control: the wedding. This horrible event happened to Cristina in an O.R., which is the place that she loves above all else. One of the things that can trigger PTSD is being back in the same place that the event happened. So this causes a big problem for her. She definitely does try to fixate on the wedding. Very quickly after they get married, Owen starts to realize that there's a lot more to this. The wedding and being married isn't going to fix her, so he starts to step up in different ways and try to help her back to the whole person she used to be.
TVGuide.com: How does everyone in the hospital react to them getting married so quickly? McKidd: They've been together for two seasons, so maybe it isn't rushed, but Owen and Cristina are still struggling through a lot of things together and are very committed to each other. Even though they know people around them in the hospital are thinking, "Wow, these guys are really doing this quickly," they are still the soul mates that we've known them to be. I think it does deepen their relationship.
Shonda Rhimes: Grey's Anatomy docs all grown up in new season
TVGuide.com: So they will still keep that passion even as a married couple? McKidd: Oh yeah. I think what's interesting is that they got married very quickly because of something big that happened in their lives, and now they have to look at the consequences. The audience will see Owen and Cristina constantly question whether they made the right decision. Not about being with each other, but getting married so quickly. Nobody is thinking straight after a huge event like that. If that hadn't happened, would they have done it? That will be the question. So it does keep that spark and that will-they-won't-they thing alive in their relationship. They're constantly pulling and pushing with each other.
TVGuide.com: Cristina and Owen's storyline has been a little dark over the last two seasons, with his dealing with PTSD. Might we eventually see some lighter, more comedic moments with them? McKidd: I hope so. It does seem to be that Cristina and Owen get the intense, messed up relationship storylines quite a bit. I would like to explore the lighter moments. We're going to see them build a home together. Now that their married, they can't be kind of house sitting. They need to find a place they're both happy with. We're going to see them have fun, because they're both very strong-minded people, who have very definite opinions and tastes. They're not necessarily the same, especially when they chose a place to live and how to decorate it. I think it'll be more domestic fun for them.
TVGuide.com: So they won't be living with Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) anymore? McKidd: I think they suddenly get the feeling that being a married couple in that situation is not making everybody feel comfortable, and they want to have their own space as well. They kind of need to spread their wings.
Grey's Anatomy's Kim Raver calls time of death on Cristina-Owen-Teddy triangle
TVGuide.com: With Owen finally choosing Cristina over Teddy in the finale, can you confirm that love triangle will stay dead and buried now? McKidd: That's what I've been told. [The writers] seem to want to build storylines for Teddy in a different way now. It almost feels like last season should've been the season that Owen and Cristina should've broken up, but however it happened, they didn't. On paper, they should've been broken up years ago, but they're still going strong. I like that. I think in the writers' minds, they want to not be so actively going down the path of how to break these people up, but now it's how they can keep them together. The triangle isn't there anymore. It's more how Cristina and Owen will fight for their relationship and their marriage. He's going to be a rock for her for a lot of this season. He took a lot from Cristina in the first season and, in a way, it's kind of payback time, and he does that willingly and gladly because he loves her.
TVGuide.com: There's always a lot of baby talk on Grey's. Do you think that could be in the cards for Cristina and Owen? McKidd: I think that would be interesting. I know there was originally a storyline that ended up being changed in Season 1, where Cristina got pregnant and they were going to have a baby, but they decided to save that for later. I wouldn't say that isn't going to happen, because we almost started that storyline a few seasons ago, but decided it was too much too soon. A lot of comedy would come out of that seeing the two of them face that together, because they're kind of an odd couple, especially as parents.

Oh, happy day!
One of TV's fan-favorite couples is getting hitched in just a few short weeks, and right now, at long last, I can reveal the bride and groom.
They are: Sandra Oh, Kevin McKidd, Grey's Anatomy Eric McCandless/ABC
Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd) of ABC's Grey's Anatomy!
Yep, they are the couple who will be getting engaged—and hitched—in the Sept. 23 season premiere, which will jump ahead two months in the storyline.
It's gonna be fantastic—and romantic!—but, mind you, not everything has been flowers and sunshine for "Crowen" since we last saw them.
One source tells me that Cristina will be one of three doctors held back from returning to surgery (buzz kill!) by the new therapist at Seattle Grace (James Tupper), because Ms. Yang is still coping with some post-traumatic stress from the shootout in last May's season finale, and because she's been too preoccupied with all that wedding planning. Take note, kids: Bride brain + scalpels = don't mix.
As for you fans who were rooting for a Sarah and Chuck wedding (they were the other remaining couple in our marriage guessing game), all I can say is, you can certainly consider this good news, because it means neither NBC nor show runners Chris Fedak or Josh Schwartz are planning on ending the series anytime soon. (Anyone else agree that would probably be the signal of the end?) Plus, I'm still hearing that Sarah and Chuck will be going strong—whether or not she becomes a Bartowski.
Now you can post all your "I knew it!"s and well wishes for the bride and groom in the comments section down below. Are you happy it's Cristina and Owen?
Also, please note: This is totally a sole exclusive scoop that you cannot read anywhere else on the web at this time. No, really! Don't even bother checking the competitors' sites! It's not like we had a pact or anything...That would be insane.
greys-anatomyImage Credit: Eric McCandless/ABCWarning: I’m about to reveal a major twist in Grey’s Anatomy‘s Sept. 23 season premiere involving Cristina and Owen, so you best hit the nearest exit if you don’t want it spoiled. Everyone else, onward and downward…
As I teased earlier this month… they’re getting hitched! And I repeat: Star-crossed lovers Cristina and Owen are getting married—and series creator Shonda Rhimes is here to explain why. (BTW, for those keeping track at home, this wedding is not this wedding.)
“The theme of this season is rebirth,” declares the Grey’s boss lady. “Everybody is sort of coming out of this very dark place [following last season's massacre]. And there was something really hopeful and beautiful about Cristina and Owen getting married.”
At the same time, Rhimes says she wanted something to symbolize that the show was undergoing a major shift in season 7. Basically, she needed a game-changer. “We talked about jumping ahead in time, we talked about jumping ahead a year,” she says. “And when it came down to it, the one thing that signals the biggest change in the world is Cristina wanting to be a bride. There can be nothing more different for Cristina than Cristina wanting to be a bride.”
With the will-they-or-won’t-they tension gone, is Rhimes at all worried “Crowen” will succumb to the dreaded B-word? “It’s really hard for Cristina and Owen to be boring,” Rhimes argues. “If Mer and Der are a lighter couple, Cristina and Owen are so fraught with their darkness and their twistiness that I can’t imagine them getting boring ever.”
Thoughts? Excited to see Cristina get her happy ending (at least for the moment)? Sound off below!
‘Grey’s’ Wedding Announcement: The Pair Tying The Knot Is… by Matt Webb Mitovich Aug 31st, 2010 | 11:03 AM | Comments 5
ABC’s ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ is heading for a rather spontaneous wedding – and Fancast cordially invites you to read on to learn the identity of the soon-to-be-newlyweds.
Next On ‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Devastated Derek And A Mystery Wedding
It was previously teased that one of these couples – Callie/Arizona, Alex/Lexie or Owen/Cristina –would not only get engaged but also tie the knot during the Season 7 premiere (airing September 23). Back then, I said that the smart money was on Drs. Hunt and Yang, if only because of some sound bites Kevin McKidd fed to TV Guide Magazine.
“They definitely take it to the next level,” McKidd said of the oft-waylaid Owen-Cristina romance. “The wedding could easily be them.”
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ DVD Offers A Bigger, More Musical Finale
Well, I am now at liberty to report – nay, confirm! – that the lovebirds about to exchange vows are… Owen and Cristina. I therefore justify my photo choice of Meredith in wedding finery by saying: She’s sure to be the maid of honor if there’s anything remotely resembling a formal ceremony.
With that reveal now out of the way, what’s the status of the other two pairs of “contenders”?
Well, Alex and Lexie are likely no more, given his groggy, gunshot-induced ramblings during the season finale. “It’s really hard to feel like there’s a love triangle going on [with Mark] if the man Lexie loves is clearly asking for another woman [ex-wife Izzie],” ‘Grey’s’ boss Shonda Rhimes told EW.com.
Which is not to say that Izzie will re-enter the picture. Though Rhimes feels for the fans clamoring for a closure-filled episode featuring an encore by Katherine Heigl, “We won’t get one,” she said on Twitter.
Callie and Arizona meanwhile are still together, but possibly still vexed by the former’s desire to start a family. Although Arizona changed her anti-kids stance during the emotional season finale, “I can’t imagine it’s going to happen easily, but… maybe it will?” Jessica Capshaw told Fancast. “I never thought it was that easy that this [hospital crisis] happened and she said, ‘OK, we’ll have 25 kids!’ The challenge will still be there, so now we’ll see if they can overcome it.” www.fancast.com/blogs/2010/tv-news/greys-wedding-announcement-the-pair-tying-the-knot-is.../
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the upcoming season of Grey's Anatomy.]
"One of the things I love about the first episode of the season is Cristina and Owen getting married," says Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, who sat down with me for an exclusive one-on-one interview to discuss her show's seventh season premiere, airing Sept. 23. "It's this beautifully wonderful, happy, hopeful moment that I really liked seeing."

TV Guide Magazine: Owen and Cristina get engaged and married in the season premiere. Why take that huge step instead of building the suspense and anticipation over a few weeks or months? Rhimes: I felt like for Owen that it became very clear out of that shooting that he loved Cristina Yang and wanted to be with her. That was made incredibly clear for him, so why would they be waiting? It also felt like she, the last person we think of being a bride, really needed a lifeline and was really changed by the experience as well and could really take a leap.
TV Guide Magazine: We have seen Cristina as a bride before — at her beautiful wedding to Dr. Burke that never happened. Is this going to be discussed or an issue blocking their path to happiness? Rhimes: Cristina doesn't talk about it. Meredith's sort of very worried that she's doing this thing. We had a line, but I'm not sure if it made it in, with Derek saying 'I was the best man at her last wedding.' You do feel like this is a very different wedding. That wedding was all pomp and circumstance with a huge church, tons of people, dresses, lots of flowers, bridesmaids and everything. This is a very simple, elegant wedding.
TV Guide Magazine: Might we see their parents in attendance? Rhimes: Cristina's mom is who she always was. Let's just put it this way — there's discussion of parents coming.
TV Guide Magazine: Where does it take place? Rhimes: It's in Meredith's living room. A candlelit evening ceremony with a small group of people and the bride does not wear white. It feels very adult and very much like Cristina.
Check back with TV Guide Magazine in the coming weeks for many more exclusive details on what's coming up this season on Grey's.
Heather in Eugene, Ore.: Thanks for the scoop on Cristina and Owen getting married! So excited that it is them. Any more Grey's scoop? I'm told that Meredith, Derek and Cristina all have been held back from returning to surgery for various reasons. Meredith is still "off" (having not told Derek about the pregnancy/miscarriage), Derek is "off" (living a bit dangerously from where I stand and speeding around town, but hopefully not pulling a Vincent Chase after his near-death and dating a porn star who cannot act), and Cristina is consumed by her wedding plans, as previously reported.
So excited about the Grey's Anatomy wedding. How will the other docs react? — Abby ADAM: Well, Meredith isn't exactly over the moon. "Meredith is worried that Cristina is getting married for the wrong reasons," Ellen Pompeo tells us. "She's traumatized after [the shooting] and she's rushing into marriage, which doesn't seem like the right move. It's not that she doesn't want her with Owen. ... There's just a little too much change there and Meredith is worried about Cristina's stability."

Question: Got anything on the Grey’s Anatomy/Private Practice crossover involving Derek’s sister? —Nick Ausiello: I’ve got this quote from exec producer Shonda Rhimes: “Amelia goes to visit Derek in the third episode of Grey’s. Derek got shot and he hasn’t been returning her phone calls. He’s never returned her phone calls. And what I love about the episode is that it really illuminates Derek. Remember: Derek’s father was shot when they were kids—something that both Amelia and Derek witnessed. And for both of them, Derek’s shooting brings up all of these memories of that. And you also get to see the two Shepherd neurosurgeons operating together, which I think is kind of badass.”
Question: I thought for sure the Grey’s couple tying the knot was Callie and Arizona. Imagine my surprise to find out it was Cristina and Owen! Anyhoo, what’s in store for Calzona if not wedding bells? —Steve Ausiello: A very crowded house. Arizona decides to move in with Callie, who is currently sharing an apartment with Cristina—who just got married to Owen! That’s enough to put a little strain on any relationship. And another obstacle looms later in the season. Teases Rhimes: “Some stuff happens with their careers that’s going to take them in opposite directions possibly.
