Last week's episode of "Grey's Anatomy" left audiences as speechless as the doctors in attendance at the combined party for Zola's birthday and Richard's big 10,000th surgery. The final confrontation between Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd), which all the other doctors overheard, was uncomfortable and tense, to say the least.

The formerly happily married couple has been through so much that it was only a matter of time before Owen snapped at his wife. When Cristina made the decision to get an abortion earlier this season, despite her husband's desire to start a family, he supported her enough to take her to get the procedure -- but fans knew it wouldn't end there. His resentment has finally surfaced, and it looks like it's only going to get worse.

During a visit to the "Grey's Anatomy" set while they were shooting their next big crossover episode with "Private Practice" (more on that coming soon), "Grey's" star Ellen Pompeo dished about the future of her on-screen best friend's marriage. "That's a really tough situation," Pompeo said of Owen and Cristina. "I don't see a good end ... Realistically, I don't see how a couple could recover from something so damaging."

"But, this is 'Grey's Anatomy,'" she continued with a laugh. "Anything can happen. We're not necessarily always in reality here."

Watch the video interview with Pompeo to hear what else she had to say, and tell us: What do you think will happen to Cristina and Owen?

"Grey's Anatomy" airs Thursdays, 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
