There’s only two episodes left in the 10th season of “Grey’s Anatomy” until fans of the Shonda Rhimes medical drama are forced to say goodbye to Cristina Yang -- forever. And because Sandra Oh is leaving the set of “Grey’s” for good, rumors have been spreading like an infectious disease over if and how the creator of the long-running series will kill off the sassy-mouthed doctor in the season finale.
Originally, Oh told the Hollywood Reporter that she wanted her final appearance in “Grey’s Anatomy” to be a celebration.
"I want us to get to that point where we see this character ride off into the sunset … Playing Cristina and growing her and growing myself in her, I want to usher her into the next section of her life in the best way possible. It's got to be Cristina Yang's happily-ever-after,” she explained.
But knowing the madness of Rhimes methods, we think it’s safe to say Cristina’s neck will totally be on the chopping block in episode 24 -- especially after we caught wind of the synopsis for “Fear (of the Unknown).”
“In the Season 10 finale, the doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital bid an emotional farewell to the beloved Cristina Yang,” the summary begins. But it’s not just Cristina’s departure that stirs up the emotions within the walls of Grey Sloan. A “possible act of terrorism” will rock Seattle and “cause chaos at the hospital.” Talk about going out with a bang. “Meanwhile, Meredith makes a life changing decision and one doctor receives shocking news, on ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’”
We just hope that the “shocking news” has nothing to do with Cristina. Despite her eye-rolling sarcasm, we're crossing out fingers that Oh’s character makes it out alive. But that seems very unlikely considering the Rhimes’ track record. She just loves killing characters off!
The chilling title of the season finale, "Fear (of the Unknown)," bolsters our argument of why we don’t think Cristina will be making it out of the hospital in one piece. The episode's title is based on a hit single by the English rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees.
