Owen Hunt was a US Army surgeon, specialized in trauma surgery. The character makes a dramatic first appearance when he performs a tracheotomy on a man with a pen, winning the admiration of Dr. Yang. Having suffered a wound himself, his extreme nature is further emphasized when he staples his own injury without any anesthesia. He later shares a passionate kiss with Yang.
The character of Hunt becomes a source of turbulence and controversy. He becomes the new head of Trauma in Seattle Grace, and manages to irk both Dr. Shepherd and Dr. Sloan who view his treatment of some of the patients as crude. He is also rebuffed by Dr. Stevens when he stabs a set of pigs and then orders the residents and interns to save their lives, in order to teach them medicine on "live tissue."
Hunt reveals details of his painful past to Dr. Yang, telling her about the death of his entire unit during his last tour in Iraq. These events seem to impact a lot of Hunt's behavior, such as his disgust for residents arguing over surgeries and talking about patients with little human decency and respect. He later kisses Yang again, somewhat desperately, after telling her that he doesn't need her.
They eventually begin a relationship, which is complicated by his Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and briefly by the presence of his ex-fiance. Hunt injures Cristina twice in his sleep as a result of his PTSD, first at the hospital and later at her apartment. On the latter occasion, she wakes up when he is strangling her. She initially tries to reassure him and continue the relationship, but she is ultimately forced to break up with Hunt when she is unable to fall asleep in his arms.
Soon after the break up he begins therapy with the hospital psychologist Dr.Wyatt. He learns from her that the ceiling fan in Cristina's bedroom is what caused him to strangle her. She also helps him to work out at a method for him to communicate with Cristina using three word sentences, after becoming annoyed with this Cristina confronts him and he tells her that the sentences are just a way for him to express his feelings for her without actually saying the words "I love you".
Some time later a soldier visits the hospital for treatment whose presence influences Owen to contemplate returning to the US Army. When he shares this with Cristina, she disagrees with his decision telling him he does not have her support. Soon after this she tells him that she doesn't want him to die, and so with her he finally visits his mother who he hasn't seen since he came back out of fear for her discovering her son to be a different man. This proves a significant step in his PTSD recovery after he soon tells Cristina that he slept for the first time without nightmares and that he can be a better man for her. They later end their break up with a passionate kiss and pursue their relationship.
