For me a wordless scene could have work, but it had to be build up
You probably remember the episode with the victorian romance, with the light touch on the hands, the longing looks, and at the end Owen sleeping on Cristina while she is reading Elis Grey journal
Almost no word and it really worked
For me the problem here, it's the poor writing/screen play wathever.
It didn't work so well
In french we say, it's like a hair on the soup: don't understand what this scene is doing here. It came from nowhere with no logic
Say goodbye to Owen is enough important to take the next flight. It's obvious
Nobody is in danger if she doesn't take that flight
Everybody can understand that you take the next flight because there was a possible terrorist attack in your home town, making your hospital a big mess
She has no reason to leave that way
It's the only thing I told to myself
It could have work if we saw Cristina looking for him from the begining or at some point of the episode, desperate at the idea that she won't say goodbye.
Tension growing up
And this scene in the OR could have be a culminant point, a kind of release
Here it's like she forgot until the very last minute to say goodbye to him
So I'm a bit disapointed too, sadly...
I have nothing to add, but was it disappointing,like you said a build-up to a wordless scene was absent, I think this was the time when words were necessary, acting through eyes can be and is admired but Cristina needed to let Owen know he mattered.
It´s like there was no next flight, so it was not worth waiting until Owen finished surgery which couldn´t have lasted eternity WHEN she FOUND the time to come back and dance with Meredith or whatever it was they were doing in this on call room.
Everything and everybody was more important and exactly like you said she only remembered suddenly after hugging Richard,oh, wait isn´t there a random guy called Owen who maybe meant something to me at one point?And that stupid Meredith wanted to keep her from doing that as well.
Plus Cristina must have realised with her intelligence that Owen must have been worried about her going to the mall and after the explosion she neither answered his phone or let him know she was safe in a short text.Goodbye cold Cristina.But she will text endlessly with Meredith from Zurich.Hooray!
I pray one woman and I know there is one will cure Owen from this unhealthy love.And I trusted Shonda in Season5
with Cristina saying yes in finale.Haha, yes to what? Sex with Owen, right.
And Cristina might come back for series finale but I am realistic to say it will be Meredith she comes back to and not Owen and maybe by that time Owen will be dead judging by how Shonda rolls.
And so disappointed by interviews from Rhimes and Oh, both happy with Cristina´s exit, with Burke back, both happy with this goodbye to Owen or was it a goodbye? Just waving at a stranger that´s what it was to me.Last to say, I am happy Cristina is gone and Owen will have his own storyline. Well, am I too naive to hope he actually might get a storyline in S11?
Sorry for the rant but it helped me.Thanks.
