Grey's VIDEO: Kevin McKidd Surveys the Owen-Cristina Hook-Up, Previews an "Odd Pairing"

Kevin McKidd, Grey's Anatomy

In part 2 of our video Q&A with Kevin McKidd, the Grey's Anatomy star weighs in on the last episode, in which Owen and Cristina finally hit the sheets. Why the wait? "They both know deep down that this isn't just a quickie in the on-call room," he says. "There's really something going on [between them]."

McKidd also shares his thoughts on who will and won't be getting married in the May 7 episode, then gets a good laugh from our question about the "going away party" for T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl.

Lastly, the Scotsman previews how Owen will set out to mentor Alex, only to see great potential in another aspiring surgeon — George — as the Seattle Grace staff contends with a war zone-like multiple traumas situation.

Exclusive: Lost Finale's "Code Name" Is Revealed

What the fork does Lost have planned?

Since Season 1, the producers of ABC's Lost have assigned a "code name" to the season-ending twist that sends jaws plunging to the floor and heads a-scratching. It started with "The Bagel" (Walt is abducted by the Others!), and most recently we had the "Frozen Donkey Wheel" (a nod to the apparatus Ben uses to "move" the island, but in actuality referring to the reveal of Locke's death).

This season, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, via their ABC.com podcast, invited Lost fans to (blindly) suggest nicknames for the Season 5 game-changer. Find out the winning entry, after the jump! read more

Getting Lost "Bonus": What the Finale Shocker Will Not Be Nicknamed

As first reported by TVGuide.com, Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse decided this year to invite fans to come up with the "code name" for the season finale's jaw-dropping final moment.

After receiving a flood of submissions — and perhaps taking a cue from a certain time-slot rival — Team Darlton narrowed the field down to a "Top 13." As revealed in the official ABC podcast, the contenders are:

  • Baby Diaper Covered in Barbeque Sauce
  • The Droids You're Looking For
  • The Exploding Pretzel Jar
  • The Fifth Toe
  • The Fork in the Outlet
  • The Hooded Leprechaun
  • Jack Gets Pregnant
  • The Joop
  • Smokey's Dorm Room
  • The Spanish Inquisition
  • The Twinkie
  • The Zeigarnik
  • The Zombie Bake Sale

One of the above — "The Hooded Leprechaun" — the boys say, seems "oddly appropriate," given the actual nature of this season's top-secret final scene. Lindelof and Cuse will further whittle down the list each week via their ABC podcast.

In the meantime, TVGuide.com is here to tell you what this year's "Frozen Donkey Wheel" will not be nicknamed. In this "bonus" episode of our Getting Lost video series, the producers reveal the No. 1 Rejected Code Name — god-awful misspellings and all.

Now if I may brazenly stir the pot, is it that the "worst" suggestion is that bad ... or perhaps Darlton's "problem" with it is that it's far, far too accurate and thus spoilery? A-ha!

Lost

Lost executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof promised to call me as soon as they came up with a nickname for the closing — and assuredly jaw-dropping — scene of this season's finale, which is now slated for May 13.
