'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16 Episode 18: Nico and Levi breakup, fans say duo looked 'damn boring' together
Considering that it was such a chaotic episode, this breakup didn't register with too many fans
The Nico-Levi drama that has been taking place on 'Grey's Anatomy' has been a bit of a slow burn. And in the latest episode, Nico Kim (Alex Landi) decides that he can't give Levi Schmitt (Jake Borelli) the emotional comfort he desires and quietly walks out on him.
Considering that it was such a chaotic episode, this breakup didn't register with too many fans. But the ones who took notice of it called it 'badly-written' and 'anti-climactic'. To be honest, for the past few episodes, Nico and Levi have been rather toxic. In fact, every time Levi tried to demand some ounce of emotion from Nico, he would be gaslighted or distracted in return.
"The Nico and Levi break up scene was so badly written and anti-climactic," tweeted a fan. Another fan wrote that Levi deserved much better. "I’m SO glad. Levi Schmitt deserves so much better. So much better," tweeted the fan.
"So glad Glasses and Niko broke up. They were so damn boring together. And Niko was pompous, not that he didn’t deserve to be, but they weren’t a match. #GreysAnatomy," wrote another fan.
A fan wrote, "I wasn't feeling the Nico/Levi storyline, so not sorry here."
"Nico is a ***... the constant disrespect he shows Levi," tweeted an angry fan. While another predicted that the two might just patch up at some point: "Levi deserves better. Watch, Nico’s gonna realize what he lost and is crawl back."
One fan tried to understand Nico's point of view too. "Honestly this Schmico storyline breaks me cuz it's relatable. I'm sure there's more to Nico's reactions because we've seen him be more...But whatever is happening doesn't excuse how he's treating Levi. I too hope Levi finds someone that can give him real depth," tweeted the fan.
The good part of the episode was that Jo (Camilla Luddington) and Levi decided to be sad together. They had a sweet moment at the bar scene and it was a relief to see a healthy friendship on the show. Fans were more happy to see this close friendship.
One tweeted, "We can be super sad together" okay yes, levi & jo being roomates is a yes from me, that scene was so cute," tweeted a fan.
"Here for this Levi & Jo friendship," wrote a fan. "Yes I need a jo and Levi friendship," tweeted another happy viewer. Another invested fan shared: "I’m LIVING for Jo and Levi’s relationship!!!!"
As they say, every cloud has a silver lining.
