Arizona seems to be looking a someone/something specific. She looks a little stunned.

Does anybody have that quote from Shonda about Calzona from the season 6 finale? I can’t remember exactly what she said & I can’t find it…

The one about their greatest fears and how Arizona protects the child and Callie protects them both? Which she saw as a symbol of their future family unit? She also talks about how they don’t solve all of their problems but they are willing to sacrifice for each other because above all they love each other. I posted that exact quote a couple of times on my blog. I don’t have time to find it now but can try later. right-and-awesome
I hope she means beyond Sandra Oh’s departure.  I would like an all around satisfying ending after this season of unsatisfying.

I was rereading through Shonda’s tweets about Calzona. She makes it very clear they skipped steps, there will be repercussions, Arizona still has insecurities about Callie (asked her if she cheated) and something is still wrong with her, they both need therapy, they have been using band-aids, they…

They are definitely not whole and healed and it seems another blow will be dealt to Callie/them in 10x23. But with only the jam packed finale left, I do think that the decision will be made to face whatever issues are left together as opposed to crumbling apart (again).

I throw caution to whatever role that plays in their season 11 arc, as I don’t expect us to have episodes upon episodes of (at least seeing) them in therapy - if they even go to therapy at all. Nor do I think they will end season 10 on a cliffhanger.

The good thing is that post-crash/amputation and post-crash/infidelity have been wrapped up thanks to 10x15 (Arizona is comfortable with new way of life, she needs Callie and Sofia to be happy, they’ve decided to move forward and make new commitments - house - together), but some debris is left to be sift through (the miscarriage and lingering insecurities). IMO, I don’t see these issues being dragged out/not addressed for too much longer as Calzona has been on this post-crash rocky road for 2 long seasons, and I think Shondaland is ready to move on with their story.

They love each other. They are together. They’ve made it through. And now their new path may center on expanding their family and the how/who/what it’s going to take to do that.

I don’t think they will crumble because I think they have made a huge deal this second half showing how much they want to be together. However I do have a feeling that their big insecurities (aka debris) will be staring them down full force. How do they get past those things without professional help? They don’t - at least that is what I hear Shonda saying. Neither one has been on the same page about that missing link of therapy all season. Something has to wake them up to that fact because they haven’t been hearing it up to now.

For clarification -no way do I think their season 11 story is all about therapy. That is the starting line to let them deal with their marriage, a legal commitment, an expansion of their family, rebuilding their trust…which is really what is not there now. It affects everything even down to Arizona trusting Callie enough to take an interest in how her research will help her.

They have a lot of story to explore that goes way beyond therapy. But whereas the beginning of 10 was about a huge rift between them I think we will close with them actual seeing what they need to do to close the remaining gap.

Of course as always I am only speculating. I know nothing other than the crumbs Shonda has thrown at us.

And let me add - when Shonda starts tweeting about end of the season story lines I think she means what happens on screen and is giving us a heads up of what to expect.

None - other than her messed up and confusing Scandal characters.

She makes it very clear they skipped steps, there will be repercussions, Arizona still has insecurities about Callie (asked her if she cheated) and something is still wrong with her, they both need therapy, they have been using band-aids, they are not in their fun sexy place yet and she asks “why not? Is something else going on?” and “why did they not take the time?”

That is a lot of ground to cover in four episodes. I do think she was referring to those issues coming up this season and I am just not confident she won’t close the season without using them in some way that is dramatic. She will set them up for next season’s story of doing the work, healing and expanding and solidifying their family unit. I always felt their premiere/finale moment would be the fight in 10x2 where Callie accused Arizona of not wanting kids in first place and Arizona accused Callie of not wanting to marry her. I can see that being something in their cliffhanger.

Did he just… Did he literally just confirm deaths? I mean "those we leave behind at our beloved Grey Sloan Memorial…" came off that way to me.

No he is leaving the show along with others and was referencing those who they were leaving behind as they move on to new things. I think.
