Everything You Need to Know About the Teddy/Owen/Amelia Love Triangle
Forget everything you might've heard about the new Grey's Anatomy love triangle between Teddy, Owen, and Amelia. We've got all the latest details from the stars themselves.
What's Happening with Teddy Altman, Owen Hunt, and Amelia Shepherd?
Nothing excites us more for this upcoming season of Grey's Anatomy than the possibility of a love triangle! As Grey's fans, we're all for the drama, and this sounds like it'll be good. Season 15 is appropriately titled, the "Season of Love" which will encompass the romantic dynamic between Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd), Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone), and a pregnant Teddy Altman (Kim Raver). So, what's going on with Teddy, Owen, and Amelia in season 15? We've got some major season 15 spoilers!
In case you forget where we left off, we'll give you a little background. At the end of season 14, Owen made a trip to Germany to visit Teddy and tell her that things were finally finished between him and Amelia. Teddy later returns to Seattle where we find out she's actually pregnant! It's been confirmed that Owen is the father, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
Meanwhile, things really aren't over between Owen and Amelia. How can anyone expect it to ever really be over? They were literally married. To make matters even more serious, they are taking care of a foster child together while Amelia looks after his drug addicted teenager mother. Talk about a complicated situation!
Kim Raver Tell Fans Details On What To Expect in Grey's Anatomy Season 15
When we hear the term 'love triangle', a million things probably come to mind. These might love triangles we've seen before, but Raver warns us that this will be like nothing we've ever seen before.
Raver tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We're in 2018 and I pitched, if we can, not having woman pitted against woman. Amelia and Teddy definitely have what they want, but maybe there's a different way for us to approach it. And the writers seem very interested in that and we're hopefully going to head in that direction. I think that will open up a very different storyline. [Showrunner] Krista [Vernoff] has informed me a bit on how we're going to do that and it really seems like an amazing storyline. I can't talk about it, but it's a device in the storyline to make the love triangle different than we've seen it in the past."
Understandably, Raver couldn't totally spill the details on what would set this love triangle so apart from others. One thing we are definitely looking forward to is seeing Owen become a father. He's always been good with kids and wanted some of his own, so this will surely be a defining moment in the development of his character. Owen has had a rough past on Grey's, so we're hoping the addition his own child will give him something meaningful to work on.
Kevin McKidd's Take On The Love Triangle
It's apparent that the Owen, Amelia, Teddy love triangle will be nothing like what we've seen in the past with Cristina in place of Amelia.
"Owen and Teddy and Cristina had a very intense, slightly juvenile love triangle," McKidd told THR. "That was just the warm up. What they want to do [now] is show people who have histories and have feelings — all three of these people [Owen, Amelia and Teddy] have a lot baggage and history with each other. And there's children involved, which is a responsibility. It's not just young people going, 'I love you … I don't know who I love.' They're grown-ups now. It's going to be interesting to see how people navigate this pretty murky and difficult and challenging news."
McKidd does give some insight into Owen's knowledge of the pregnancy. He tells fans that as of the second episode of season 15, Owen still has no clue he has a baby on the way.
Meanwhile, his foster child with Amelia will still be in the picture, giving Owen a full plate this season.
However, McKidd has faith in Owen and Amelia.
"I like where they're at and where they're headed because they're both being quite adult. It's bringing out the best in them," Mckidd said. "It's creating a lot of attraction to one another — they're seeing the best in each other again. They're genuinely going, 'Maybe we do have another chance.' In the midst of all that, Teddy is coming back. I don't know what she's going to be like with Owen. I don't think she's going to show up being, 'I miss you and I love you,' because she didn't want to speak to him ever again the last time she saw him. It's going to be really fun — he's got more love than he can handle!"
What To Expect With Season 15 Quickly Approaching
Season 15 will return on Thursday, September 27 at 8/7 c. on ABC. We're looking forward to seeing some new faces, as well as the return of our favorite characters. We're most excited to see how this love triangle will play out, especially after we heard McKidd and Raver's take on it. We expect that there will definitely be lots of drama and heartbreak, but the new baby will definitely bring joy as well. The "Season of Love" can't come any sooner!
