Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Spoilers: Kevin McKidd Spills On Teddy And Owen Romance
"There’s still that connection between Owen and Teddy."
After 4 long months, Grey's Anatomy Season 14 returns tonight! Can you believe it, Grey's fans? One character who we have been anxiously keeping our eye on since the close of the Season 13 finale is Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd), who discovered that his presumed-dead sister, Megan Hunt (Abigail Spencer), was still alive while dealing with his rocky marriage to Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone). However, things are going to get a little trickier with the return of Owen's best friend, Teddy Altman (Kim Raver). In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, McKidd teased what was next for Owen in Grey's Anatomy Season 14.
Will Owen And Amelia Get Back Together In Grey's Anatomy Season 14?
Amelia definitely stepped up for Owen in the Grey's Anatomy Season 13 finale. However, it looks like she'll be singing a different tune once Megan is back in Seattle.
McKidd said, "It’s interesting, because Amelia, even though she steps up in the finale, is kind of in a very different place when Megan gets back, and quite a surprising place, and it causes a lot of issues for Owen and Amelia."
Owen's Family Comes Into Town
Grey's Anatomy fans will also get a glimpse of Owen's family, who we haven't seen before, even when he got married to Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh).
McKidd shared that Amelia's behavior "causes issues for Owen’s family. Owen’s family all gather ’round in the first few episodes for Megan’s return, so they really witness the way Amelia’s handling this and they have a lot to say about it. Owen is not only having his own concerns, but his family are also raising up their hands and saying, 'You know, there’s some issues here.' So it’s interesting to see, even though as you say, Amelia really was there for him in that darkest, darkest hour when it suddenly looks like Owen’s turned that corner and is emotionally on a bad track, it’s interesting to see Amelia’s presence and I think it does cause big challenges and it makes Owen question a lot."
Teddy Is Coming Back And She's Still 'Badass'
McKidd also spilled on how Teddy's return will affect Amelia and Owen's relationship in Grey's Anatomy Season 14.
"You know, him and Teddy are best friends from years and years ago, so that plays out in a very fun way and a very kind of familiar way," McKidd teased. "I think it’s going to be great for the fans to see her back. I think the fans are going to get a huge kick out of seeing Teddy back in the hospital, and she’s still the badass that she always was and there’s still that connection between Owen and Teddy. So yeah, that definitely is a cool thing that plays out, and the fact that she makes that effort and comes halfway across the world to be by Owen’s side kind of speaks volumes about the depth of the feeling between those two people."
Does this mean that we might see a romance growing between Teddy and Owen? Sorry, Amelia. We're totally here for a Owen and Teddy romance in Season 14.
Should Amelia Be Worried About Teddy?
While it seems like there will be hints of a Teddy/Owen romance, it looks like Amelia won't be worried about Teddy's return.
"You would think she would," McKidd said. "But she’s in this very particular place where her reaction to Teddy being back is something that I don’t think Owen expected or anyone expected, least of all the audience. The writing this year, I mean it’s always great, but Krista Vernoff coming in this year is really shaking up the show in a very fun, very interesting, surprising way."
While we're happy that Amelia is fine, we're also a little alarmed by this statement. Is there something else going in Amelia's life that's making her act this way? In ABC's press release regarding later episodes of Grey's Anatomy Season 14, we learned that Amelia will discover something shocking and she keeps it a secret. In the photos, we also noticed that Amelia was looking at brain scans and fighting with Webber. Is she sick? Does Amelia have a brain tumor? We definitely hope not
