excuse me favorite character did i give you permission to die


I cried when I saw Mer and Owen sitting at the table because those are quite honestly the only two people on earth that completely and fully understand Cristina Yang. I think that together, they will learn to survive without her. And even though that is devastating to think about, it’s what she would want. Those are the two people who really taught Cristina what it means to love another person. Their surprise appearance at the dinner epitomized Cristinas relationships with them for these last 10 seasons….she has always needed them more than she was willing to realize, and they have grown to understand that.

"I have a lot of memories of people. People I’ve lost forever. But I have a lot of other memories too. This is the place where I fell in love. The place where I found my family. This is where I learned to be a doctor. Where I learned how to take responsibility for someone else’s life. And it’s the place where I met you. So I figure this place has given me as much as it’s taken away from me. I’ve lived here as much as I’ve survived here."
