'Grey's Anatomy' season 16: Amelia Shepherd's pregnancy scare leaves fans wondering who's the father of her baby
'Grey's Anatomy' was full of surprises and shocks. It seems Amelia Shepherd is having a baby, but who's the father?
The first episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' Season 16 began with a lot of surprises and shocks! In an emotional roller coaster of break-ups and make-ups, there was a big pregnancy scare. Hold your breath as there's a mystery surrounding the entire fiasco. It seems Amelia Shepherd (Caterina Scorsone) is having a baby, but who's the father?
Amelia's life is in total disorder. She is dating Link (Chris Carmack) but she is scared of "going all in too fast." She just wanted to date and to get to know each other. In all the chaos, she is also trying to balance it out with maintaining civility with Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) and Teddy Altman (Kim Raver) for the sake of their children. However, one 'Grey's Anatomy' star seems to be shipping the two. Camilla Luddington, who plays Jo Wilson in the series, tweeted, "Who is shipping link and Amelia!! Meeeeeeee #GreysAnatomy."
However, there was a major twist towards the end of the episode. Amelia approached Carina DeLuca (Stefania Spampinato) for a supposed threesome but everything changed when she asked her, "Are you here for your pregnancy or just asking for a menage a trois?" She was visibly confused and gasped that she could be there for the former reason as well.
With all the signals and symptoms pointing out to a green light for pregnancy, Carina could simply gush at it. If Amelia is at all pregnant, she needs to figure out who the father is — Link or Owen. For her to have a baby with Link would mean their relationship would speed up, which is exactly the opposite of what she wants. Meanwhile, Owen just had a baby with Teddy and for him to have another one would just complicate things too much.
There is another possibility that the pregnancy scare could just be a false alarm and that might not only be a relief for Amelia but for the fans too. With too many babies already on the show, viewers are quite bored with another pregnancy storyline. "Are we going to go through another Amelia losing another baby?" one fan tweeted, while another wrote, "If they go with an abortion storyline with Link fully supporting Amelia, it would be an amazing contrast to Owen's abusive ass when it happened w/Cristina, providing an example of what a partner SHOULD do when their uterus-having counterpart decides to exercise that right."
The second episode releases on ABC this Thursday, October 2, and there are many more surprises on the way.
