After the shocking death of Patrick Dempsey’s Dr. Derek Shepherd, Grey’s Anatomy has given Ellen Pompeo’s Meredith Grey time to grieve, but it seems romantic storylines are headed her way once again!
After a trailer for the new season teased a possible hookup between Meredith and DeLuca, there is actually a new love interest on his way for Meredith — and it is a familiar face for sitcom fans!
How I Met Your Mother‘s Josh Radnor will be taking on the role according to multiple reports, although who is character is still remains a mystery.
A clip for the new episode on Thursday, October 11 shows Meredith at work all done up for her blind date.
In the clip, as Grey stands in the lounge wearing a tan-colored trench coat and a white blouse underneath, her sister-in-law Dr. Amelia Shepard (Caterina Scorsone) walks in and asks, “What happened? Are you going to a funeral?”
“What’s wrong with you?” Dr. Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) follows. “You look weird.”
“Oh my god, you have a date,” Dr. Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) chimes in.
Meredith then reveals that it is a blind date and she has never met him and doesn’t know what he looks like!
If the possibility of a new romance wasn’t enough for Grey’s Anatomy fans, the episode is going to be huge as Thursday’s episode will be a two-hour crossover event between Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19.
It all begins at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Grey’s Anatomy’s 11 Worst Chemistry Couples
11. Alex and Ava/Rebecca
In all fairness, it was a little hard to decide if there actually could be something between Alex Karev and his patient Ava/Rebecca due to her mental state, but from what fans saw, there was no room for chemistry. Alex had always been a carefree womanizer, and while he had a soft side, there was no way this relationship was going to end up in a good place and didn’t seem to work from the beginning. There had been believable relationships between the doctors and patients before, but unfortunately this pairing just wasn’t one of them.
