‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Kim Raver Updates Fans About Teddy Ahead of Tonight’s Episode
When Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 returns for episode 9, Teddy Altman (Kim Raver) is not doing well. The last time viewers saw her, Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) carried her home. Ahead of tonight’s new episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Kim Raver weighs in on her character’s health and well-being.
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Season 17, Episode 9 promo
In the next episode of Grey’s Anatomy Season 17, something is very wrong with Kim Raver’s character, Teddy Altman.
“She hasn’t spoken,” Owen says in the promo trailer. “She hasn’t eaten. If something doesn’t change soon, I’m going to have to get her admitted.”
Although Owen takes care of Teddy, he hasn’t forgiven her for cheating and lying. Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) pleads with Owen to forgive her.
“The only time I’ve ever seen that kind of look, it’s in soldiers,” Owen adds. “And plenty of them never came back.”
In the preview for Grey’s Anatomy Season 17, Episode 9, Teddy talks to Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) in her hallucinations/dreams.
Kim Raver weighs in on Teddy Altman’s storyline
Many fans worry that Teddy will die; however, Kim Raver spoke about redemption for her character. In a recent interview, the star weighed in on Teddy’s fate.
“Literally and figuratively [Owen] lifts her up out of the depths of her darkness and is getting her to a better place,” Raver told Entertainment Tonight. “Meredith is in it, and some other surprises are in it, so I really think it is all about their friendship first.”
It sounds like viewers do not have to worry about Teddy dying. Instead, fans can look forward to growth.
“This is such a beautiful story, and I really feel that the fans have been wanting this and wanting to see Teddy be able to redeem herself in whatever way she can,” she continued. “We went really far with her, and it is really hard to come back from that kind of awful cheating, just cheating, period. But I am hopeful for Teddy. She has a long journey to gain forgiveness, and I hope that we get to see that.”
Owen Hunt and Teddy Altman might not be over
Will Owen forgive Teddy? Many fans felt that Teddy crossed the ultimate line when she continued to cheat on Owen. Although she broke things off with Tom Koracick (Greg Germann), she slept with him one last time the night she was supposed to marry Owen. Most fans were outraged at her actions. However, Kim Raver talks about a turning point for Teddy in the upcoming episode.
“I think what’s so beautiful is in the episode Amelia illuminates a lot of things for Owen,” Raver told TV Guide. “Both Teddy and Owen have PTSD, though it looks different. This might open up the door for more of Teddy and Owen, not sure what door that might be exactly, but we all grieve in different ways, and those are really important scenes between Amelia and Owen, and I think those scenes are portrayed; beautifully.”
If Teddy and Owen don’t repair their relationship, at least they might save their friendship. Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
