I remember reading once that in the original script, Cristina’s character was bisexual and I really really wish they had stuck with that. She was so badass, she had a motorcycle, she was a double-doctor, she went to SMITH (she lived in Talbot), she was so fucking fierce, but they made her straight; a really strong assertive chick BUT she needs to have a dude around all the time even if it’s not right for her.
And I hate that cliche. So much. The strong assertive chick always needs a weakness and it is always a dude.
I wonder if she ever told Owen about her dad; I wonder if she told Burke. Does Meredith know? Purgatory-Denny told her, but does Meredith actually know?
