There have been plenty of names on the fans' wishlists for who should visit Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) on the beach. But to actually sit by her bedside in real life, there is one person that tops the list and that is Meredith's 'person' Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh). Ever since Meredith has battled Covid-19, fans have been urging the show creators to bring Cristina back for a cameo.

What has got fans hopes up though, other than the recent spate of cameos including that of Patrick Dempsey, TR Knight and most recently Chyler Leigh, is that the latest Teddy Altman (Kim Raver) centric episode had plenty of mentions of Cristina. So many mentions, that fans were left wondering if the creators of 'Grey's Anatomy' are trying to build up to a big comeback for Cristina.

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 17 Episode 9: Will Owen forgive Teddy? Here's how Meredith helped her overcome PTSD

We see in Teddy's hallucinations how Owen (Kevin McKidd) says it is Cristina who is the number one love of his life. We see Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) reminding Owen how his PTSD led to him strangling Cristina and we also see her in a number of flashbacks that Teddy (Kim Raver) has. In fact, fans have also been urging Cristina to come back so that she can help out her mentor Teddy as well during her harrowing time.

One fan tweeted, "I can't help but think that in today's chapter they named Cristina a lot! #GreysAnatomy #Cristina". Fans are even wondering if the trailer showing Lexie on the beach at the end of the Teddy episode is some sort of decoy. "Will we see Cristina? I just - dropping Lexie in the trailer given how much everyone wants her back seems a massive spoiler so is the reason they’ve dropped Lexie as a spoiler to put us off the trail and because someone else is back too? #Cristina #GreysAnatomy #Merwakeup"





Fans are certainly keeping the faith that this reunion is happening, "Im sure of this cristina yang we're waiting #GreysAnatomy". But Meredith doesn't just have one 'person', there's also Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) and fans are hoping that a Karev, Yang and Grey reunion is also on the cards. One fan tweeted, "I just cant believe we actually got derek, george, and lexie back this season now i just need cristina and alex to show up in that hospital room to wake meredith up." 





Will the makers of 'Grey's Anatomy' give the fans what they want and get the talented Miss Oh to return? To find out you can catch new episodes of 'Grey's Anatomy' on Thursdays at 9|8c on ABC.
