“I used to be someone who was always happy. I woke up happy. I was someone who used to skate at work. And then this happened. And everything was hard and everything took thought and planning. It was like my life didn’t fit me anymore. I wanted to tear it all down and start over, just throw it away and find a life that fit who I am now. But I’m starting to feel like I know who I am again.”

“I used to be someone who was always happy. I woke up happy. I was someone who used to skate at work. And then this happened. And everything was hard and everything took thought and planning. It was like my life didn’t fit me anymore. I wanted to tear it all down and start over, just throw it away and find a life that fit who I am now. I’ve had to give up things. But what I’ve learnt is that I don’t need much to be happy. I don’t even need two legs. But I do know, that I need you.

My very final moment of shooting was with Kevin, and it was the final moment where Cristina says goodbye to Owen. It was a beautiful image of Cristina in the gallery, basically behind glass and tapping on the OR theater below. Symbolically, with that distance, it cinematically tells the story of where they are and also puts a distance that they don’t want between them. It felt right because it was tough shooting that. Both Kevin and I, when we were shooting each other’s close-ups, the other person was in the complete dark. We were both holding a flashlight up to our face so that we could actually see each other. Usually Kevin and I are about a foot away from each other, so for there to be so much space between the glass was really rich. It’s not happiness; it’s not sadness. It was very full and rich — even in the way we wanted to be closer to each other, which is exactly like how Cristina and Owen are: They just want to be closer to each other. It’s just not the time now.

In case you were wondering what happened to Alex’s backbone in season eleven, 
apparently he left it somewhere in season ten.
