Get More: Finales, Spoilers

Greys Anatomy Season 9 Calzona TwistGrey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes added another sharp turn to Callie and Arizona’s rollercoaster year this week with the introduction of Hilarie Burton’s potential third wheel Lauren.

As of now, Arizona has yet to reciprocate the flirty doc’s advances, but a lot can — and it sounds like will — happen in this season’s final two episodes.

“We’re equal opportunity over here at Grey’s Anatomy,” maintains Rhimes of a possible ‘Calzona’ cheating scandal. “Straight people have their cheating moments all of the time. We’ve created this relationship that’s very interesting and complex, and I feel like we’re at a moment where this [temptation] feels earned. We’re doing something that feels very in keeping with what’s right for these characters.”

The exact nature of that “something” was provocative enough to bring the show’s season finale table read to a brief standstill. “There was a [Calzona] scene that was such a breathtaking moment that it stunned everyone into silence,” Rhimes recalls, adding, “It’s the culmination of a [season-long] journey for these two characters.”

So, what say you? Do you think Arizona will stray? Theories about the “breathtaking moment” in question? Hit the comments!

  • I am a bit disappointed & upset in Arizona cheating. It seems so out of character and maybe it should. Maybe just maybe that is the point…Arizona is no longer herself. The plane accident has changed her and in changing her wants, her needs, her desires are different also. Maybe that is what Shonda is doing for both characters (Callie & Arizona). She said she is going to be good to both; she did not said together. It’s just sad that a family is getting broke up. Yes! A family…not alterative, straight, or gay…simply a family.

  • I think everyone missed the point here, heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual or whatever the hell someone chose to be, CHEATING IS WRONG!!!! Is one of the lowest thing you can do to your partner. You don’t only loose their trust, you crush their feelings and destroy their self esteem. What explanation or valid excuse can you give them??? Oh it was a momentary indiscretion, I’m only human…. blah blah, as rational beings we can control our impulses, we are not dominated by instinct…. we someone cheats they know what they are doing, they just don’t care. How can you look to your significant other in the eye and ask them to forgive you and tell them you love them when your actions prove otherwise. There’s not going back from some things. By the way, Arizona sucks, I hope Callie dumps her ass. And every season finale is the freaking same, some kind of disaster, a few characters in distress, one or two dead. What else can happen to Meredith in her life? I know, next season a black hole swallows the earth and Seattle Hospital whatever the name is now with it. Now the doctors have to operate in the extreme and unknown conditions inside it.

  • I hope Arizona realise that she has lost her daughter.

    Callie is legally and biologically her mother and she is also rich so Arizona will lose her daughter.

  • I think Callie has had it. She waited 5 months to have sex and Arizona hops in bed with a stranger after they make up. Nope, she s done.
