Grey’s Anatomy: Is Love on the Way for Meredith Grey?
When you’re hoping that the exit of Nathan Riggs earlier this fall on Gray’s Anatomy signifies that the door is open for one more suitor to enter into Meredith Gray’s life as soon as the present lastly returns subsequent month, then this may not be the information you are on the lookout for.
In a brand new interview with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Krista Vernoff opened up about Mer’s (Ellen Pompeo) love life—or lack thereof—now that Nathan (former collection common Martin Henderson) has left Seattle behind for the sunnier skies of Los Angeles along with his presumed-dead fianceé, Megan. And whereas she stays hopeful that the widow will discover love once more, it does not sound like she’s received any quick plans to make that occur.
“What’s subsequent for Meredith by way of a love life stays to be seen,” Vernoff stated.. “I imagine that romance and love are all the time a chance, particularly after we have misplaced the loves of our life. We’ve got to evolve out of our quick grief. I imagine that quick grief takes greater than a few years. I do not need to ever short-shrift the individuals who have gone by way of the dying of a partner and say you simply transfer on, otherwise you simply transfer on with the primary individual.”Following the stunning and painful lack of her soul mate Derek (Patrick Dempsey) on the finish of season 11, Mer had a one-night stand with Dr. Thorpe (keep in mind him?) earlier than connecting with Nathan over their shared loss. For Vernoff, the reference to Nathan served a significant goal of opening Meredith again as much as the concept she might care about another person once more. “However that does not essentially imply that individual is your individual for all times,” she added. “One of many issues that I like that we do on the present is present this very human journey.”
With a 300th episode that noticed Meredith win the coveted Harper Avery Award because of a refined dedication to her life’s ardour—her work—it is clear that, whether or not or not romance comes, it isn’t what defines the character any longer. (If it ever even actually did.) “Love is feasible for Meredith 100 p.c,” Vernoff stated, “but it surely’s not her focus.”Are you hoping Meredith finds love once more or are you simply superb with watching her be a boss within the O.R. as a substitute? Pontificate within the feedback beneath!
Gray’s Anatomy returns on Thursday, Jan. 18 at eight p.m. on ABC.
