He is still in bed, and she is rushing to go. She needs to leave for Zurich. She had been putting off her departure for as long as possible. Owen tries to pull her back to bed, but she doesn't want their big final moment at his trailer. She will see him again at the hospital before she leaves. She rushes out to end the clip.
Cristina Yang has been a huge part of this series since day one. Her departure will change the series completely. This week's episode did toss another twist out in the open.

It has officially been renewed for season 11.
Shonda Rhimes did go to her Twitter earlier this week to reveal that the finale was complete and ready to air. She also revealed that Cristina Yang was actually based on the "Cristina" in her life.
