Thursday night’s Grey’s Anatomy showed us Callie and Arizona in a bitter custody battle for their daughter Sofia. It ended with Arizona gaining full custody over Callie who is Sofia’s biological mother. It divided the former couple in a way that the fans who watched the episode got their hearts broken with the duo. But the future is not all heartaches and conflicts for the characters of the show. (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)
According to TVLine’s interview with Kevin McKidd who plays Owen and who also directed last night’s episode titled “Mama Tried,” the aftereffects of the divorce to the moms will be seen in the coming episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, but there’s good time as well.
When asked what’s the aftermath for Callie and Arizona, McKidd said:
“Yeah, they try to be professional, but it’s hard when there are hurt feelings like that.”
With regards to Owen and Amelia, McKidd revealed that happiness awaits the two characters.
“Yes. We finally start to get to really enjoy each other, which is a blast to play. Caterina [Scorsone, Amelia] has a blast exploring that levity, because [our characters] get on like a house on fire, so it’s really nice to be able to play all that real affection and step away from the angst.”
It may just be for the moment but for the time being, they’re in a good space according to McKidd.
Meanwhile, fellow Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams (Jackson) also had a talk with THR about what will happen on his relationship with his divorced wife April and their future baby after the wake of Callie and Arizona’s custody battle.
When questioned if there’s still hope that they can save their relationship:
“For sure. If there wasn't a pregnancy, it would have been much easier for them to completely separate and avoid each other; the pregnancy gives them a reason to keep interacting and keep crossing paths,” Williams said.
“It's definitely been a magnet. I think there's hope [romantically]. I don't think it's promised at all. But there's always hope. If they're both alive, there's always hope.”
Grey's Anatomy broadcasts every Thursdays on ABC at 8 p.m.
