Will Meredith and Nick be released on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’?
Spoilers ahead for the Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 premiere. For the second year in a row, Grey’s Anatomy kicked off its season by bringing back a blast from Meredith Gray’s past. Although former guest star Scott Speedman’s Nick Marsh’s return to the Grey’s The Season 18 premiere didn’t quite punch Derek’s epic return from the dead last season, the character is sure to turn Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) ‘s love life upside down in a major way. . After all, Deadline revealed that Speedman joined the ABC medical drama as a series regular while the September 30 episode was still airing.
A quick reminder: Mayo Clinic transplant surgeon Nick Marsh appeared in a Season 14 episode when he went to the Gray Sloan Memorial to retrieve a liver for one of his patients. While there, Nick – a kidney transplant recipient himself – collapsed in the hallway, before Meredith discovered and surgically removed a blood clot, saving her life. Given the intense flirtation and intense chemistry between Meredith and Nick, fans have been clamoring for her return as Dr Gray’s lover. It may have taken a few years, but it looks like fans are finally getting their wish.
In the ‘fictional post-pandemic world’ of season 18, Meredith spotted Nick on a date at a restaurant in Minnesota, where she was having dinner with David Hamilton (Peter Gallagher), the neurosurgeon who is trying to recruit her to lead her. laboratory for experimental surgery for Parkinson’s disease. In a later scene, Nick enlists an employee to direct Meredith to her table in a hotel bar, where the couple had a quick and flirtatious catch-up session.
During their conversation, Meredith revealed that she was already in a relationship, before correcting herself and explaining that she no longer saw the man because her son was having a problem with the mating. (It was then heavily implied that Cormac “McWidow” Hayes (Richard Flood) was the man Meredith was dating.) Regardless, she also made it clear to Nick that they would not be sleeping together. She also stayed true to her word, even when he took her back to her hotel room, and they shared a sexually tense good night at the door.
“I’ll just say that I think the romantic comedy aspect of things was interesting to me,” Speedman told Deadline after the episode aired, adding that the role reminded him of his Congratulated days. “I knew Ellen could handle this, and I knew I could do it, and it was fun for me.”
Grey’s Showrunner Krista Vernoff hinted in the same joint Deadline interview that the budding romance could potentially move to Seattle, although Meredith was courted for the Minnesota gig: “He works full time in Minnesota, but we’ve established that he is also an itinerant surgeon. . He is a traveling transplant surgeon. He’s going to look for organs, and things, and he’s got her whole life, and she’s got her whole life, and we’ll see what happens.
As to whether or not Meredith and Nick will be in the finals, the jury is still out too, as speculation will be the finals. Grey’s the season continues to accelerate. “He’s here for this season, and that’s what we know right now and what we’re saying,” Vernoff added, also warning fans not to necessarily rule Hayes out either. “I think she and Hayes had started to connect, clearly, towards the end of last season, and he’s a father first, and he’s a widow, he’s a much more recent widow, and I think “There’s a nice complexity to be had in Meredith, again, has two men she has feelings for. I think it’s all in the timing, and more will be revealed.”
