Last night's Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 21 marked the fourth-to-last installment for Sandra Oh's Cristina Yang on the long-running ABC medical drama.
Fans saw why she did not win the Harper Avery Award, and learned that next week, Isaiah Washington's Preston Burke makes his long-awaited return.
According to Catherine Avery, Cristina Yang could never win because the Harper Avery Foundation co-owns the hospital where Yang works. That's it.
She actually received the most votes and should have won, though ... so it's both more and less crushing for her we'd have to imagine. Politics ...
Amelia Shepherd, meanwhile, is engaged, and Caterina Scorsone's character visited Seattle to see what a life with kids and her career would be like.
Certainly Grey's Anatomy offers plenty of case studies there.
