The shocking finale of “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 9 left viewers with several questions – is Dr. Richard Webber dead or alive? What will happen next for Arizona and Callie?
Entertainment Weekly spoke with Executive Producer Shonda Rhimes to answer some of those questions.
“That’s such an interesting question! I love that people are asking that question,” Rhimes said when asked if Dr. Richard Webber had died.
“I’m not going to answer it because I like that it’s a question,” she said.
“I will tell you that you will see Jim Pickens again, but I’m not going to answer the question.”
Jessica Capshaw, who plays Arizona, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the couple and their future.
When asked if there’s hope for Callie and Arizona, Capshaw said, “I don't know that anyone knows.”
“I've been with my husband for 11 years, married for nine, and when I think of the rupture of a relationship and the fallout of infidelity, I don't know that you can get that trust back,” she added.
“Clearly, by the end of the finale, you understand that something for Arizona is permanently damaged and lost.”
“What you see in her very core is that Arizona does not forgive Callie for promising her that she would not amputate her leg and then amputating her leg,” Capshaw added.
“She does not forgive her for that. When you're watching it, if you're really listening, you understand both people's point of view. I completely empathize when Callie says, 'I only did it to save your life. You would have died!' That's a good point. Yes, she would and very well could have.”
“But to Arizona in that moment of trust, she looked at her wife and said, 'I need you to promise me something,' and her wife looked back at her and said, 'I promise you.' And then she didn't do it. For what ever reason, and I don't know that it makes sense or is right or wrong, but Arizona does not forgive Callie.”
However, Capshaw hinted that the couple will be together for at least part of Season 10.
“ Infidelity is horrible -- there's nothing worse than that; it's devastating. I hope it doesn't turn into a year of self-flagellation for Arizona,” she said.
“I think you can do something bad and it doesn't make you a bad person. We are not defined by any one choice. We are the sum of our experiences, and we can make a bad choice and turn around and do better.
“I do think that with any kind of infidelity, on some level -- unless you're dealing with a sociopath -- there's always a reason. There will be an exploration of what that reason was and that will give the Grey's writers fertile ground to play with next season.”
