'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16: Fans spew hatred towards Owen for his heated 'pregnancy' argument with Amelia
Titled 'Papa Don't Preach', episode seven put the spotlight on Amelia and Owen after the former broke the pregnancy news to him.
Babies seem to be the main theme in Season 16 of 'Grey's Anatomy' with multiple pregnancy storylines. However, Amelia and Link's baby was the biggest head-turner this season! Titled 'Papa Don't Preach', episode seven put the spotlight on Amelia and Owen after the former broke the pregnancy news to him.
"Link and I are having a baby. Yay for all the babies!" she blatantly breaks it to him. Before he can say a word, there's an emergency. His new patient is a young mother named Cassidy, who is reluctant to have another baby and wants it terminated. Owen is taken aback and even questions if she "threw herself off the stairs" to abort the baby. His personal feelings come in the way of his professional life and he is adamant to not let his patient go for abortion.
Later, when Amelia confronts him, a barrage of emotions flow out of Owen's heart. "You put me through the pain that you didn't want to have a baby. That pain ended our marriage. But now it's clear, you just didn't want a baby with me", he blames her. Amelia explains how she was not even ready when she found out she was pregnant but taking care of Betty and Leo with him helped her embrace parenthood, and for that, she’s grateful to him.
Owen finally cools down and the two exes share a heartwarming moment, joking about how there should be a "big family book" for their kids. However, fans still can't stop dragging Owen down for his behavior and his insecurity with Amelia's happiness.
One fan wrote: "Why does Amelia always have to smooth everything over, make Owen feel better? Why does he get to be abusive to the women around him and never have to look inward and make a change?!?! WHY?!?! #GreysAnatomy," and another one posted, "I don’t understand why Amelia is apologizing to Owen for being pregnant & happy."
"See?! He did it again. Hey Owen! Guess what? Amelia is 1000% allowed to not want to have a baby with you, but want to with someone else", one tweet read, and another said, "Amelia went through months back in Private practice knowing her son wasn't going to last a day and the writers made her apologize to Owen because she didn't want a kid with him when he knew that... what is wrong with this season."
It seems like the anger will last for a long time until the 'Grey's Anatomy' writers put a lid to this Amelia-Owen-Teddy triangle. Episode 8 will air next Thursday, November 14, 2019 on ABC at 8 pm EST.
