Grey's Anatomy season 13 will not return this Thursday (24 November) as the show is on a brief hiatus after its mid-season finale. The medical drama by Shonda Rhimes will be back with episode 10 on ABC in January next year.

Upon its return, the untitled tenth episode will reveal the fate of Owen and Amelia. In episode 9, Amelia left Owen with a note reading: "Don't make this all your fault. I know you. That's what you do. But please, please don't do that."

In the current season, the couple suffered marital disturbances after Owen wanted to take their relationship to the next stage by having babies. However, this was a shock for Amelia as she is scared to have another pregnancy related trauma. In episode 6, she confessed to Alex about her baby boy born without brain, which lived for 43 minutes.

Hence, the pressure of having a family with Owen is giving her cold feet. While the show's fans are expecting them to still remain a couple, Kevin McKidd – who plays Owen – told Entertainment Weekly that Owen and Amelia are off for the time being. "For now, she has, which is horrible and heartbreaking for both of them. For anybody to be in that much pain that they feel that's their only course of action is very, very sad — that somebody that has gotten to that point where they feel there's such a divide or such a break in their relationship that they have to do that."

The actor explained the two characters' emotional state after their split as they both have had their shade of tough times in past. "My heart goes out to Amelia, because she's in so much pain. My heart goes out to Owen, because he's obviously going to be in so much pain. He's with this woman who he had to win back on their wedding day, and then now again she's disappeared on him. He's starting to ask big questions about where this is headed. He's not an idiot."

The remaining episodes of the season 13 of the medical drama will return on 19 January 2017.
