It seemed to me that Owen was, earlier in the season, trying to forgive and move on from the abortion, but Cristina's alliance with Teddy (particularly that stolen surgery where they both dissed him in the operating room and he heard them laugh behind his back) that seemed to be the point where his anger came to a head. What if "Be my person" was more about the fact that he lost Teddy as his best friend, his wife is allying herself with her against him. In my mind, support system is really about the fact that in the end, Cristina has one, but Owen doesn't anymore.
Thanks for saying that. No, he doesn´t have any support system. Little bits and pieces of support from Derek, Callie and Bailey, and from Richard profesionally here and there but that is nothing solid. He will break down, it is a question of time. JMHO
SO did overact, when you laugh at her and not feel for her. It's way too much.
I didn´t laugh at her or Cristina at all but I was unpleasantly surprised by that performance in the bathroom scene. I deeply admire Sandra, she is immensely talented, she kills every scene, but something about the way she played the scene in the bathroom with that laughter and the way she delivered her line about crying over a boy seems ...I can´t even express it. Was it overacting? I don´t know. Does it have something to do with the direction she has been given? But Allison Liddi-Brown is an outstanding director. The writing failed her, there is no doubt about that.
I have to agree with others who thought that SO overplayed it a bit, it took me too far out of the scene to feel any emotional connection.
Both KMK and SO were beyond fantastic in this episode as always when they act together but just this one scene with Cristina in the bathroom was uncomfortable to watch. To be honest I felt and I had the same look on my face as Owen did or as Kevin portrayed him in that scene, it was like I can´t really believe what I have just seen, quiet pain ... JMHO
Maybe a more subtle performance in that single scene would have a different effect on me, but this is how Sandra played Cristina in that scene and I respect that but I didn´t like it personally.
