'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16: Here's why fans want Owen Hunt's role to be axed from the ABC medical drama
'Grey's Anatomy' viewers don't like how Owen is handling things in his life and feel like the makers should kill him.
Currently in its sixteenth season, 'Grey's Anatomy' has been through many shifts and turns. TV's longest-running medical drama has kept fans on their toes with dramatic plot twists, but with so many character plots it is only fair that viewers tire of some of the characters. This time around it is Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) and fans want him out from the ABC series.
In the second episode one interesting point was when Owen, Tom Koracick (Gregory Andrew Germann), and Atticus Lincoln (Chris Carmack) were stuck in an elevator. Fans couldn't stop cracking jokes about the awkward encounter as all three characters have shared a romantic history with Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone).
In the past Owen messed things up with his wife Amelia and had a baby with Teddy Altman (Kim Raver). Tom was clearly not too happy with how things turned out as he had feelings for Teddy. To top it all, Owen accidentally hurt Tom during surgery and left him fuming.
The bizarre accident only ticked him off further and paved the way for a rivalry. Viewers don't like how Owen is handling things in his life and feel like the makers should axe his role from the show now. "Jackson and Owen are the worst men on #GreysAnatomy. I said what I said and I meant what I said," one user wrote. Another one wrote, "Even after all these years, Owen is still an unlikeable character."
Many even went on to say that Owen should die. "@GreysABC I hate Owen Hunt and I don’t care about his storyline please get rid of him and bring back Callie and Arizona," one user wrote, while another blatantly said, "It’s time for Grey’s Anatomy to kill some people. I nominate Owen Hunt." "Could Owen die please I beg you @GreysABC," one user posted.
"I’m watching the early seasons of #GreysAnatomy was Owen always so whiny !!!!!!" one user wrote. Another fan said, "Tbh, Owen is hella irritating. Amelia should be with Link and Teddy with Tom. This whole back and forth got boring a long time ago." "I don't want Owen to start working at Pac North. He is the worst character and I want him as far away from Alex as possible. #GreysAnatomy," another user posted.
On the relationship front too fans feel Amelia finally found a better person after breaking up with Owen. "Amelia and Link are sooooooooo much better than Amelia and Owen ever were wow #greysanatomy," one fan wrote and another said, "I love Link and Amelia together. I’m hoping they don’t throw Owen in the mix. I’m over him! #GreysAnatomy." Fans feel even Teddy doesn't deserve Owen. "Definitely @GreysABC & the really annoying Owen + Teddy coupling. Teddy was great with Tom," one wrote.
As the third episode titled 'Reunion' rolls out on Thursday, October 10, on ABC, it is yet to be where Owen and Tom's feud takes them.
