Things are about to get intense over on Grey’s Anatomy now that the plane-crash lawsuit is picking up steam. You remember the plane crash right? The one that killed two main characters, caused Arizona to lose a leg and injured Derek’s hand? Well, if you don’t remember that monumental event, this clearly isn’t a show you pay close attention to. And with the legal troubles ahead, it might be time we meet some new characters that will become entangled in this mess. The first to be cast– assuming there will be others – is Nip/Tuck’s Roma Maffia. And you’ll want to get used to seeing her face; she might be around for a while.
According to TV Guide, Maffia has been tapped for the multi-episode arc of Roberta, a member of Seattle Grace’s board. She’ll be making her first appearance in the Nov. 29 episode when it becomes clear the board will need to be brought in to the lawsuit when things start to really blow up. I’m certain their involvement has much to do with the crash victims’ legal team deciding they should go after the hospital and Owen for their settlement deal. It’s nasty business and great drama. But just because that’s the course of action that’s currently being taken does not mean it will be the inevitable outcome. Chandra Wilson spoke up saying “Where [the lawsuit’s] going to take all of the participants, and who’s going to ultimately end up with the blame for the accident? I think that’s going to also come in as a surprise.”
Maffia’s time on Grey’s may not be limited to the lawsuit storyline. Her character has the potential of becoming a recurring presence. That could be an interesting person to have pop in from time to time just to give us updates on the hospital from a business stand point. It would be a nice break from the monotony of relationships and medical anguish.

Yes, Grey's Anatomy's Dr. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) will ultimately end up in a wedding gown — but whether or not any vows are exchanged with her fiancé, Ben (Jason George), remains to be seen.
"Bailey is not participating," explains Wilson of the nuptials, set for the madcap December 13 episode. "She already had a wedding with her first husband, so she's not excited to make the same vows in front of the same people again. Plus, she has a lot of patients in the hospital. It's a particularly hectic time for her to get whisked off to a wedding. People might show up, but Bailey's priorities get diverted."
That means it's up to friends (like Cristina, Callie and Richard) and family (Miranda's mother Elena [Bianca Taylor] and cousin Claire [Kelli Kirkland]) to try to get her to the church on time.
"Cristina says the reason she agreed to her own wedding ceremony is because she knew it was important to Owen," says Wilson. "And the Chief talks to Bailey about how nervous he was when he married Adele and that he regrets spending so much time at work when he could have been savoring his relationship."
'Grey's Anatomy' Enlists 'Ringer's' Justin Bruening for Recurring Role
He'll play paramedic Matt and a potential love interest for one of the Seattle Grace doctors.
The Ringer actor is checking into ABC's Grey's Anatomy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
STORY: 'Grey's Anatomy' Postmortem: Sarah Drew, Jesse Williams Talk April and Jackson's Future
The former Switched at Birth and All My Children player will recur on the ninth season of the Shonda Rhimes drama as a paramedic named Matt and a potential love interest for one of the Seattle Grace doctors. He'll first appear in late January or early February. Details on just whom Bruening will romance are being kept under wraps, but the hospital does have two newly single docs in Cristina (Sandra Oh) and April (Sarah Drew), who both just split from their respective partners in Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Jackson (Jesse Williams).
"People start to really root for Jackson and April and since we're Grey's Anatomy, we've got to pull them apart and have them see what else is out there and how that makes them feel toward one another and see what, if anything, will draw them back together," Drew told THR during a recent set visit.
Cristina, meanwhile, recently professed that she wants Owen back but considering Owen's divorce bombshell, we're guessing anything could happen.
Bruening's credits include NBC's failed Wonder Woman pilot in 2011 opposite Adrianne Palicki. He's repped by Innovative Artists.
Lily: Can you spill anything on Neve Campbell's guest spot on Grey's Anatomy?
Sure can. We were on set while she filmed her second episode (but more on that next week), and while you will certainly see how much her character loves her brother Derek, you'd be surprised to find out that she does not get along with Meredith. Like, at all. And she has a very good reason for butting heads with Derek's wife.
'Grey's Anatomy's' Sandra Oh, Kevin McKidd on Hope for Cristina and Owen: 'They Love Each Other'
The actors talk with THR about what happens next for the couple as Owen attempts to do the honorable thing for the plane crash survivors.
On ABC's Grey's Anatomy, Kevin McKidd said the one word that really could bring the end of Cristina and Owen's turbulent marriage: divorce. While his request was straight-forward, the motivation behind it was anything but as Seattle Grace's current chief was doing his part to ensure that the plane crash survivors -- including Cristina (Sandra Oh) -- received the financial settlement they deserved after their harrowing experience.
"He's in a corner and he can't get out of it," McKidd 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."
During last week's episode, Owen realizes that the attorneys representing the hospital in the crash lawsuit brought on by survivors including Derek (Patrick Dempsey) are only backing him because of his marriage and very clear conflict of interest as they hope to get the case dismissed because of his relationship with one of the plaintiffs -- Cristina.
Meanwhile, Cris -- having grown thanks to her experience in Minnesota with Dr. Thomas (William Daniels) -- confides in Meredith that she wants Owen back, despite each of their extra-marital affairs. Yet moments later, she's quick to agree to his divorce request -- which comes after Owen is not too subtlety reminded that he's under a confidentiality agreement prohibiting him from discussing his true motivations for ending their marriage.
"When he first asks for the divorce, obviously she doesn't know it's because of the lawsuit so she understands that he's asking for one," Oh tells THR, noting that it makes sense considering their icy relationship following his affair during season eight of the Shonda Rhimes drama. "You've seen the really angry abusive stuff, the emotional stuff and betrayal and after all that messiness, you get tired of fighting and just have to deal with the reality of the reality."
To that end, Oh says Cristina and Owen have moved on from that stage of trying to fight for each other and how their story line will play out will be realistic of a long-term relationship.
STORY: 'Grey's Anatomy' Enlists 'Ringer's' Justin Bruening for Recurring Role
"What happens when all the fight is just drained out of them? I don't think either side is wondering why at this point, there's been so much s--- that's gone on between them that you can point to a billion things [that led to this]," Oh says. "There's nothing for her to really understand."
Their relationship, Oh notes, will come to a "crescendo" around Christmastime when Cristina reveals how she's coping with his divorce request and what Owen does. "I like to think of it as an exciting beginning," she says.
"They realize that maybe being divorced is an opportunity as opposed to an ending," McKidd says. "It almost feels like the notion that they get to re-look at their relationship with a very fresh outlook but divorce is a very final ting and it brings up a lot of emotions in people and it's tough for them to go there because they're kind of soul mates. It's a very mixed and very fraught period in their life." STORY: 'Grey's Anatomy' Postmortem: Sarah Drew, Jesse Williams Talk April and Jackson's Future
For her part, Oh looks at Cristina and Owen's relationship through the eyes of famed feminist/author/poet/psychologist Marion Woodman in that couples could be married to their partners many times as their relationship evolves.
"The first phase is like projection, you spend so much time thinking the person is something they're not and because you fall in love with them and get to know them and then those projections have to fall off because they're not who you thought they were and I really feel like that is what's happening with Cristina and Owen," she says. "Then what happens is that people fight during that time and if you get through that first phase, there's a new one of individuals coming together but many people never get through that first phase."
STORY: 'Grey's Anatomy's' Kevin McKidd on Hope for Cristina and Owen: 'They're Still Destined to be Together'
"What's happening to Cristina and Owen is happening in somewhat real time so you have that same living, breathing relationship with them so to see people, when circumstances and personalities break people apart, to see how they could come back together and rewrite their own rules is really exciting," she adds.
"They really feel for each other," Oh says. "And honestly, there's no way Kevin and I are going to stop acting with each other. I'll put it in my contract!"
And McKidd couldn't agree more. "They're very complicated and messed up but they're kind of made for each other," he says. "There's something about them that they can't stay away from each other for too long."
What are your hopes for Cristina and Owen? Hit the comments with your thoughts. Grey's Anatomy airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on ABC.
Will Bailey actually make it down the aisle on Grey's Anatomy? — Brenda
NATALIE: The promos don't look promising, right? Bailey will contemplate pulling a Runaway Bride after receiving some horrifying advice from one half of a rocky Seattle Grace couple. However, there is good news on the horizon for one group of 'shippers, but mum's the word on which one. Hit the comments with your guesses!
Question: Big Grey’s Anatomy fan. Tell me you have something good about Meredith and Derek. —Tia
Ausiello: First off, let me tell you something good about Grey’s Anatomy in general — I’ve seen Thursday’s episode and it’s really, really terrific. Best of the season by far. Some highlights: On the eve of her wedding, Bailey’s an emotional basket case — equal parts Tasmanian Devil and Bridezilla; Owen and Cristina face a turning point in their relationship, triggered in part by the arrival of their divorce papers; April and Jackson go to great (read: hilarious) lengths to avoid attending Bailey’s nuptials together; Neve Campbell continues to prove that she was perfectly cast as Derek’s sis; and getting back to your question, Derek and Meredith share one of my favorite scenes together ever — a wholly uneventful husband-and-wifey exchange at the hospital that will make you swoon.
Question: Got any scoop on Grey’s Anatomy, preferably something to do with Callie and Arizona? —NG
Ausiello: I almost forgot! Callie brings Arizona’s 2012 Pity Party World Tour to an abrupt end on Thursday, in the episode’s most rousing moment. You’ll applaud, you’ll laugh, you’ll want to hand Sara Ramirez an Emmy yourself.
Question: Do you have any interesting info on Constance Zimmer’s role on Grey’s Anatomy? —Christina Ausiello: The theory I put forth last month? Don’t think that’s going to happen.
Grey's Anatomy: Do Cristina and Owen Belong Together? Dec 19, 2012 08:48 PM ET
Grey's Anatomy has torrid relationships down to a science, but when Derek (Patrick Dempsey) and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) finally got together, fans could breathe easy. Sure, they still had their ups and downs — the hospital shooting, her tampering with the clinical trial, his need for speed — but at least the MerDer 'shippers can rest easy that executive producer Shonda Rhimes won't — crosses fingers, just in case — ever break them up again.
However, it's a different story for Mer's best friend Cristina (Sandra Oh), who has been in a tumultuous relationship with former Army surgeon-turned-Chief of Surgery Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) since Season 5. Throughout the ensuing years, there's been a lot of push and pull between the duo as they decided whether they could actually be together, what with his PTSD and her inability to let anyone else in. The introduction of Teddy Altman (Kim Raver), the third point in the much-despised love triangle, was a major obstacle that was finally vanquished for good with Raver's exit from the series in Season 8.
But their shotgun wedding after the shooting was really the first in a long line of missteps that lead Cristina and Owen (or C/O, as the 'shippers call them) down a windy path to divorce. She wanted an abortion; he wanted kids. He lied to her about the surgery she performed on her then-mentor Teddy's husband, which led to his death. He cheated on her. The list goes on. (And we're not saying that Cristina doesn't have her faults, but the con list for Owen is certainly a lot longer.)
Yes, we realize Owen's want for a divorce has to do with the conflict of interest in the plane crash lawsuit, but just like every joke is 50 percent based on truth, so is this divorce — Owen even said it himself! Every time they try to make a go of it, they end up getting hurt because they want different things.
So why does Cristina, a strong and capable woman who has never relied on a man to make her happy or whole, now have to rely on Owen? One could make the argument that she's finally grown up and become comfortable in letting herself be vulnerable, but as much as Cristina has changed since she went to Minnesota, she still deserves something better than a man who cheated, wants different things, once choked her out, and screamed at her during a holiday party.
It's high time that both Cristina and Owen make a go of actually finding a relationship — not just sex friends — outside of the hospital. If then, and only then, they've both grown to actually appreciate what they could have as C/O, then we could accept them being together. But until then, C/O — despite their steamy kiss in the midseason finale — should go their separate ways. Bring on the hate mail below.
Grey's Anatomy returns Thursday, Jan. 10 at 9/8c on ABC. Do you hope Cristina and Owen get back together when the show returns?

'Grey's Anatomy' scoop: 'Hung' actor visiting Seattle Grace -- EXCLUSIVE
Grey’s Anatomy doesn’t return until next week, but here’s a bit of casting scoopage to tide you over: Hung actor Eddie Jemison is checking into Seattle Grace later this season. Not much detail on this part yet. Jemison will play Stan Grossman, a smart-warm-nerdy type in a multi-episode guest star role.
Question: I'm not sure who is still watching Grey's Anatomy, but I am glad to say I still am. Grey's Anatomy shows why it is still going strong with great acting, which blew me away recently in the form of Owen and Cristina. The miscommunication and her finally understanding the reason Owen decided to go through with the divorce was one of the most must-see TV moments for me in I don't even know how long. I can even say I am enjoying the new interns as they find their way through the pitfalls at Seattle Grace Mercy West. Guest star Neve Campbell (I've been a fan since her Party of Five days) was just the icing on the cake as Derek's pushy sister, reminding Meredith that she married into a family, not just the man. I'm happy to see the show still churning out these top moments after all these years. — Alice
Matt Roush: Actually, Grey's Anatomy is doing just fine, especially considering how long it's been on. And it's still often one of the high points of my Thursday night viewing after all these years — in fact, when I remember how disenchanted I had become with ER by its ninth season, I'm amazed how well this is holding up. Agreed about Sandra Oh and Kevin McKidd as Cristina and Owen; they sell every stage of their turbulent relationship with maximum emotional impact. I'm less sold so far on the new batch of interns, but maybe they'll grow on me. It's not like I won't give them time.
