'Grey's Anatomy': Is Nick Marsh really Meredith Grey’s END GAME?

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Did you ever imagine Ellen Pompeo's Meredith Grey would settle for anyone else other than Patrick Dempsey's Dr Derek Shepherd in 'Grey's Anatomy'? We guess, no one did. However, after Dempsey bid adieu to his McDreamy character back in 2015, a lot has happened. Grey had another baby whom she named after her mother Ellis. She was in a relationship not once but thrice. Although those relationships didn't turn out to be a fit replacement for Dempsey's McDreamy or Pompeo's character's end game. 

The first man she was with after Derek died was Dr Will Thorpe (Scott Elrod), who was a perfect gentleman. However, that didn’t stop Meredith from throwing him out of her bedroom in a panic about waking up next to someone else for the first time after Derek's death. There were also Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson) and Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti). Meredith's relationship with both of them went fairly smoother but neither proved to be a perfect fit for Meredith. That was partly due to her professional and personal life being dominated by the grand romance with Derek for the better part of a decade. Meredith’s storyline shifted largely into a woman learning to come into her own after a short life infested with so much tribulation and loss.


Ellen Pompeo to exit ABC's ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ after 19 seasons, fans says show 'outgrew’ Meredith Grey long ago

Regardless, the story of her life changed, love wasn't the central focus anymore. When Scott Speedman made his first appearance as transplant surgeon (and patient, as it turned out) Nick Marsh in Season 14, fans immediately took notice of the characters’ romantic chemistry and speculated if there can be something more. We are sorry to break it to you that even though Nick and Meredith had a major drama between them but it is not as passionate or perhaps as crazy as Derek and Meredith had. In light of Pompeo’s news that Season 19 would be her last, it would be easy to predict that Nick could be the second great love of her life but then it is not Disney's 'Cinderella' but ABC and Shonda Rhimes 'Grey's Anatomy', so it's safe to say we shouldn't jump on to any conclusions just yet. 

Regardless, Pompeo said her farewells in an Instagram post, where she shared a warm message thanking the show’s devout fanbase for support across 19 seasons. Pompeo’s note to fans comes just one week after the drama’s fall finale, which marked the actor’s final official episode as Meredith, the intern-turned-head of general surgery and now the interim chief of surgery. “I am eternally grateful and humbled by the love and support you have all shown me, Meredith GREY and the show for 19 seasons!” Pompeo, 53, wrote. “I love you madly and appreciate you right back,” she wrote to fans. “This isn’t your first time on the rollercoaster… you know the show must go on,” she added. However, will 'Grey's Anatomy' remain the same without the Grey in it? We guess time will tell.


Grey's Anatomy', which follows the personal and professional lives of the doctors at Seattle's Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, airs every Thursday at 9 pm ET.
