'Grey's Anatomy': Season 15 promo trailer sees Meredith with her fifth 'Dr. McDreamy'
After Shepherd, Finn, Thorpe, and Riggs, looks like Meredith is in for some steamy romance with Italian charmer Andrew DeLuca in the new season of Grey's Anatomy
Watching 'Grey's Anatomy', one thing everyone would agree on is that Meredith Grey is one hell of a lucky girl when it comes to dating, and the promo trailer for Season 15 only confirms this truth. Other than giving a sneak peek into all the juicy hospital drama, the clip also revealed that this time Meredith is in for yet another 'Doctor McDreamy'.
The latest trailer shows Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) hooking up with the gorgeous Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti) who had swept viewers off their feet with his melodious Italian song in the final episode of last season. Looks like the song has certainly tugged some strings in Meredith's heart (along with fans on Instagram) and it's probably time the two finally get together. If that happens - unless the two decide to stop things after just a one-night stand - DeLuca will be the fifth installation in Meredith's franchise of 'good-looking men'.
Over the last 14 seasons, every guy who Meredith has dated have been the representation of what a "perfect" man could be - handsome, tall, emotional, sensitive, and smart (they are all doctors). Her quest began with Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), aka Dr. McDreamy who was, is, and will always be Meredith's one true love. However, with Derek's death in Season 11, Meredith spun through a number of hook-ups including William Thorpe in Season 12 and Nathan Riggs in Season 13. While nothing much happens with Thorpe as he is more of a rebound than an actual infatuation, Riggs, however, was quite a serious affair- probably Meredith's first serious affair after McDreamy's death. That too ended when Riggs reunited with his former partner and left for Malibu.
With DeLuca's entry in her life, it will be interesting to see what is in store for the doctor who seems to have a refined taste in men (well, at least when it comes to the tight jawline and a pair of dreamy eyes). As the promo kicks off by introducing several new characters (all extremely good looking), it also gives a glimpse into Teddy's awkward announcement about her pregnancy to Owen and Amelia (Amelia's face is worth watching). However, the main attraction in the trailer remains DeLuca and Meredith sharing a steamy kiss, following which DeLuca teases Meredith with a wink.
Ellen Pompeo had earlier told Entertainment Weekly that this season Meredith is going to "date, date, date, date, date, just like my friends who are ready to jump back into the dating world do".
As this will be the 'Season of Love', Pompeo indicated that it was time for Meredith to move on from Derek's memories. The actress confessed that she is grateful for not being single in real life but tries to resonate with other people through Meredith. "I don’t know, I’m just really happy I’m not single in real life. I try to listen to everybody’s stories, all my friends and even people that I don’t like that much, so we can tell a story that resonates true with people who have been through something like this.”
It wouldn't come as a surprise if Meredith falls for DeLuca's smoldering wink - after all a drunken DeLuca did try to hit on Meredith last season. Since anything and everything is possible in 'Grey's Anatomy', it seems impossible for Meredith to be with anyone who does not appear to be a Greek god.
Probably that is one way for the show to make up for the viewership it lost midway due to an overly dramatic storyline. That certainly doesn't change the truth that with all the men looking so handsome, and the women practically compelled to fall head-over-heels for these wonderful-but-damaged-inside men, the show has very less to offer when it comes to the actual subject - the true life of a doctor.
Doubtless, Season 15 won't be any different than its predecessors but it surely is going to be entertaining. Showrunner Krista Vernoff had earlier confirmed with TVLine that this season Meredith will surely find time for romance (as she always does). But the twist is as a single mother, dating is complicated. Vernoff remarks, "The question this season is not 'Will Meredith Grey find love again?' but 'With whom will she find love?'" Well, looks like at least for some time it will be DeLuca, but is it for real? Find out in the new season.
