The aftermath of the crash in Grey's Anatomy will unravel changes among the relationships of the S. Grace doctors, personally and professionally. With the death of Lexie Grey and Mark Sloan's departure on the surface, it will be an impossible beginning for the remaining characters to move forward. However, in spite of the heavy loss and trauma, we learned that the docs will cope by leaning against each other.
Ausiello from TV Line visited the set of Grey's Anatomy where he bumped into Kevin Mckidd, the actor who portrays Owen Hunt. Mckidd shared with TV Line that his character Owen will be building a better relationship with Derek when the series kicks off this fall.
“Owen needs a friend and so does Derek, so in the first few episodes they do check in with each other quite a bit. And it’s nice to see that friendship flourish.” Especially since Owen is still dealing with his fractured marriage, while Derek copes with a fractured hand. “Guys, being guys, are not great at talking all the time — they’re not like the ladies on the show, sitting around pouring out their feelings. But [Owen and Derek] do have some moments that they share where they are both at in a very real way.”
