'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16 Episode 7 preview: Owen lashes out at Amelia for having a baby with Link, but does he have any right to do so?
"You didn't want to have kids but now you're with someone else and you're happy having a baby with another man," he yells at her
Pregnancy has been the theme of Season 16 with too many "good news" announcements rolling out with each episode. Before episode seven titled 'Papa Don't Preach' airs next week, a promo has been released and it drops some major spoilers from the show.
The 30-second clip begins with Maggie Pierce wondering, "Does that woman look like me?" and Jackson makes a snarky remark again. Gradually, Maggie finds out that a woman and man come to her and claim to be "family".
Meanwhile, Amelia asks Meredith if she should tell Owen about her pregnancy and Mer gives her the green light. Catherine spots Richard with his patient Gemma but the big twist comes when Owen lashes out at Amelia for happily having a baby with Link.
"You didn't want to have kids but now you're with someone else and you're happy having a baby with another man," he yells at her. Amelia's expression shows she is clearly distraught and shocked and Meredith tells Maggie that Owen's anger is "understandable".
There seems to be quite a bit of drama for the next episode. Don't you think so? Well, fans are clearly miffed by Owen's reaction. "It says a lot about Teddy and Owen's relationship if he's that angry about Amelia's pregnancy #GreysAnatomy," one fan wrote.
Another posted, "Owen yells at Amelia for having a baby with another man when he literally just had a baby with another woman! Do you not see the problem with that. he’s a hypocrite."
"Do we really need another pointless fight between Owen and Amelia??" one fan wondered while another one posted, "I mean I get why Owen is mad. A family was all he wanted when he was married to Amelia."
"And at one point Amelia even made him believe that she wanted a family with him too lol but he got his 2 kids and he's with Teddy now," the fan added.
Some viewers, meanwhile, are tired and want his character to be chopped off. "You know it's been a while since a main character has died on this show. Owen's right there," one tweet read.
Another fan, however, had a bizarre theory. "Part of me feels that Amelia's baby is really Owen’s baby. This is #GreysAnatomy."
There is quite a bit on the platter for Owen and Amelia in the next episode, isn't it? But there's more to look forward to as well.
The synopsis for the upcoming episode reads: "Catherine is back in town and has no idea what's been going on between Jackson and Maggie, while her relationship with Richard has become distant."
"Owen and Amelia treat a woman who fell in the basement and quickly realize that there is more to the story, and Maggie is shocked to learn about some of Richard’s relatives who are seeking help," the summary adds. The episode airs on ABC next Thursday, October 7 at 8 pm EST.
