The View: Jessica Capshaw – Grey’s Anatomy Finale
The Grey’s Anatomy season finale was pretty rough on Jessica Capshaw. After her character, Arizona, lost her leg in a plane crash, she might have also lost her wife after a moment of passion with another woman. She came on the show today to talk about the finale.
What led Arizona to the moment of passion? She has dealt with the loss of a limb and PTSD and has been very on guard as a result of that. Jessica thinks it was all of this, coupled with the flirtations of another woman that treated her as an object of affection, that caused her to crumble.

The relationship between Arizona and Callie (dubbed by fans as “Calzona”) has been put in jeopardy after Arizona cheated on Callie with another woman. The couple is very important to the LGBT community, and Whoopi wanted to know if Jessica Capshaw was worried how they might react to it.
Jessica wasn’t so much worried as she was concerned with approaching the situation with tenderness. The reasoning behind the infidelity was to show that same-gender marriages have their problems, just like any other couple. Given that they have never encountered any big relationship issues throughout the show, they thought it was time they upset the apple cart a little.
