“Grey’s Anatomy” season 13 lead character Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) may finally find love in the upcoming episodes of the hit ABC series.
In an interview with Variety, executive producer Betsy Beers said that she believes Meredith deserves to fall in love again.
Ever since her husband Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) passed away, Meredith claimed that she no longer needs to love and be loved in return.
However, this could only signify that Meredith could be in for the biggest surprise of her life in the upcoming episodes.
“There was something about that, that I felt so pleased and so satisfied. I feel like there’s something incredibly delicious about getting to watch this, so fingers crossed this is the tip of the iceberg,” she said.
Meanwhile, Beers also talked about Meredith and Nathan Riggs’ (Martin Henderson) huge moment in the latter episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy” season 12.
During that time, the two decided to hook up and actually enjoyed it.
According to Beers, Pompeo and her cast members were all surprised to find out that the actress will be paired with Henderson in those episodes.
“That was certainly one of my favorite moments of all of the shows this year, and I can tell you that at the table read, the reaction from the actors was, ‘Oh my God!’ It was just one of those great moments of total surprise,” she said.
As of late, it is still unclear whether or not Meredith and Nathan will continue to sleep with each other. After all, Meredith already found out in the finale that Maggie (Kelly McCreary) has feelings for Nathan.
But when Beers was asked to weigh in on the possibility, the exec said that she hopes Meredith and Nathan will continue to hook up.
“Grey’s Anatomy” season 13 will premiere on ABC sometime this fall.
