Grey's Anatomy has had a lot of staying power over at ABC, largely thanks to the consistency of Meredith Grey and a slew of shocking plot twists that often still have fans on the edges of their seats. This season looks as if it will be no exception, as Grey's Anatomy has already revealed a twist ahead of the Season 15 premiere. The new trailer is here, and it features plenty of shots of Meredith hooking up with DeLuca.
The trailer kicks off with Meredith Grey having a nice moment with Alex Karev, where he tells here she really needs to finally get over Derek and find someone to be, as Meredith puts it, "her person." While there's a ton of other stuff to cover in the 2-hour event episode, including a panicky moment where someone is yelling "back away" in the hospital, there's also one huge, beard-filled spoiler. That right, Meredith and DeLuca are going to hook up and we even get a glimpse at a full-on steamy bedroom scene between the two.
This is kind of a wild turn of events, considering it was just a few short seasons ago when Karev and DeLuca got into a huge fight. DeLuca had gone to see Jo and Karev had been helping her get into bed after she had drunk too much alcohol. Misreading the situation, DeLuca thought Karev was assaulting Jo and they got into a big fight in which Karev violently injured DeLuca. Things got out of hand when DeLuca pressed charges, but the interesting takeaway to all of this is that Meredith Grey was supportive of Alex Karev during this time and not Andrew DeLuca.
Sure, things have changed on the series since then, but it still seems a little wild to me that Meredith Grey and Andrew DeLuca would ever hook up after those events. But here they are in the sack together. So, the next question to ask has to be: Is DeLuca Meredith's person? I would expect not. She's had a few flings since Derek died, but nothing serious has come of them, either because actors left the show or were not the right fit for Meredith Grey. However, DeLuca has been a part of the series for a while and in some ways would be a good fit for a longterm romance. Perhaps it is high time Meredith found a love interest who sticks, as well.
Last month, we learned that Meredith Grey would definitely be a part of Season 15 "Season of Love" and it makes sense she would find a little loving with another hospital resident. After all, it's way more convenient for Grey's Anatomy to write plots for characters who already work in the hospital together. We'll just have to wait and see if this one has any longterm potential. In the meantime, the ABC drama is also teasing some new, attractive doctors, one of whom is played by Alex Landi and will be the hospital's first openly gay male surgeon. Take a look.
