‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Says Goodbye To Dr. Cristina Yang
Dr. Cristina Yang is one of TV’s most beloved characters, but after 10 seasons, she’s officially gone.
Although actress Sandra announced that the season would be her last back in August 2013, her final episode on May 15 was still heartbreaking to watch for Grey’s Anatomy fans!
Her sendoff was perfect with tears, joy and, of course, one final Meredith and Cristina dance, and she’s off to a bright new future with a huge career (Burke’s old job)! But, will Cristina ever return to “her person” for another episode down the road?
Sandra Oh Says She Would Return For Another Episode
Although she’s absolutely not coming back for Season 11, there’s still hope that Sandra Oh could reappear in another episode — perhaps the series finale!
“‘Yes, of course I would,'” Sandra Oh told show creator Shonda Rhimes in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “We talked about that when I told her I was going to leave but we haven’t talked about it again….I told her, ‘If you guys want to finish it out however you want to finish it out, I’d be more than happy to come back. And if it doesn’t fit in that way, I totally understand. I just want you to know that I’m available.'”
Sandra’s potential return sounds very promising, but what did she think about Cristina’s final episodes?
“I felt like you could show the most amount of growth by seeing her come face-to-face with one of the most influential beings in her life,” Sandra told the magazine about Burke (Isaiah Washington) coming back. “To see how she has surpassed him and how she flourishes beyond him.”
Whether or not Cristina is seen again on the show, one thing’s certain, in Sandra’s eyes: “She’s filled with hope and with everything moving forward in the future.”
