Could it really happen? Meredith and Alex are the epitome of #FriendshipGoals, but could they become something more in the future? Ellen Pompeo is speaking out about just that!
With Derek (Patrick Dempsey) gone for good, could Meredith welcome a familiar face into her life romantically? There are Alex (Justin Chambers) and Meredith shippers out there, and Ellen Pompeo spills on whether or not she could see a romance happening between the BFFs.
“I don’t know how much I can really say — because I don’t want to get fired!” Ellen told Cosmopolitan about the idea of Meredith and Alex getting together.
Well, well, well. We could definitely see it happening (and not happening). Personally, I support any direction Shonda Rhimes chooses to go with Meredith and Alex. They have great chemistry as just friends, but after that heartbreaking scene after Meredith was attacked, there’s clearly a lot of love between them. Jo said yes to Alex’s proposal, but as we all know, things can change on Grey’s.
Meredith’s brutal attack in the Feb. 11 winter premiere was a new turning point for her character. So what’s next for Mere?
“So, after the attack, she goes into therapy, which is an idea that Shonda and I discussed,” Ellen revealed to Cosmopolitan. “And then in therapy, she starts exploring what it means to be alone, and [how] she’s never alone, and how alone does she want to be? Everyone else thinks it’s time for Meredith to move on and start dating again. And so Meredith has to explore that opportunity of, ‘OK, what does dating again look like, and how do you do that?’ We’re moving toward Meredith dating again, so everyone has to get ready for it. I can tell you that I’ve shot a few scenes, although I don’t know where they’re going to go, but I have shot a few scenes, and I’m very happy and excited with the way this is unfolding. It’s exciting for Meredith, and it’s some happiness, some light. I hope we get to keep going to down that path.”
