Shonda Rhimes Reminds Us All What "Grey's Anatomy" Is Really About In New Clip
In a new clip from a "Grey's Anatomy" season 10 DVD featurette, Shonda Rhimes reminds us all what the popular ABC medical drama is really all about!

Who else cried during the Grey’s Anatomy season 10 finale, when Christina Yang (Sandra Oh) bid farewell to her friends and fellow doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital?

In a new clip from the “Beautiful Relationships” featurette, as part of the upcoming Grey’s Anatomy season 10 DVD set, series’ creator Shonda Rhimes discusses Cristina’s departure. Rhimes commented on the original plan for Cristina’s send off, saying that “she was going to leave in [episode]22. And I just couldn’t do it. Because I knew that there were things that we would miss. Things that we wouldn’t get to do.”

To those who’ve seen Grey’s Anatomy from the beginning, you know how powerful of a bond Christina has with her “person” Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) because, despite every romantic relationship that both have had, they’ve remained the one constant in each other’s lives. The show has “never been about a boy,” Rhimes reminds us. “The show has always been a love story between Meredith and Cristina.”
