In an interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada on March 18, Kevin McKidd (who plays Owen Hunt) revealed that the Teddy-centric episode will include flashbacks from previous seasons.
“The episode I’m directing – which is Episode 9 – I’m really excited,” McKidd said. “It goes a lot in the past episodes and the flashbacks related to Teddy. So I will come back. It’s a bit confusing because I’m watching scenes from season 6, 11 years ago. … But it’s really fun to go back and watch those early episodes.
Grey’s Anatomy Season 6 was Teddy’s first season, and the character’s arc was closely tied to the storylines of Owen and Cristina. So, it’s possible that Cristina is in one of those flashbacks. But for now, that’s just a theory. So stay tuned.
