With one of the most beloved characters on Grey’s Anatomy officially off the show, we now realize just how many things we will miss about Cristina Yang. For the past ten years, we have fallen in love with Sandra Oh’s character and now it is pretty impossible to imagine what the show is going to be without her. It is going to be hard to fill the void of such a big character on the show. Let’s say our goodbyes by listing the things we will miss about Cristina Yang.
1 Her Sarcasm
Among the top things we will miss about Cristina Yang is her hilarious sarcasm. While she was a stoic and serious character, she still managed to shine some light on some of the darkest situations. Her direct and witty remarks brought smiles to our faces and we thank her for that!
2 Her Friendship with Meredith
Forget the romances and drama because Cristina and Meredith’s friendship has been one of the most crucial elements of the show since the start. How will Meredith survive with ‘her person’ no longer by her side now? You can’t really imagine one without the other. Although the two hit a rough patch in the latest season, the two have an unbreakable bond that we are truly going to miss.
3 Her One-liners
Aside from Bailey, Yang has some of the greatest one-liners on the show. And what are we going to do without them now? How are we going to survive the show without the much-needed humor in otherwise deadly serious moments?
4 Her Medical Brilliance
Ever since the start of the show Yang has been a medical genius. She knows what she is doing and she is an expert at everything she approaches. Yang manages to save her patients even when they are on their deathbeds. We are surely going to miss her expertise and life-saving skills.
5 Her Honesty
I think Cristina Yang has inspired us all to be more direct and honest with our feelings. She is not afraid to speak her mind, state the obvious and say things others are too afraid to say. She is direct and bold, and while sometimes it comes back to bite her, that’s what makes Cristina, Cristina.
6 Her Dramatic Scenes
Cristina Yang’s character has been put through quite a lot over the last 10 seasons: relationship drama, plane crash, abortion, etc. She has been through it all and we all got to watch her deal with every hurdle that came her way. It has all been very intense and this just proves how great of an actress Sandra Oh is.
7 Her Unconventional Character
I think we can all agree that much of our adoration toward Cristina Yang comes from the fact that she is like no other female character portrayed on television. She is not a perfect housewife, she doesn’t want children, she just has tunnel vision on her career. She is a shark and if she wants something she gets it, and that is very refreshing to see in a woman.
I think we still have yet to process the fact that Cristina Yang is no longer part of Grey’s Anatomy. The idea still hasn’t sunk in, but we already have to say good bye to her character. What are you going to miss the most about Cristina Yang?
