How will “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14 play the new love triangle of Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson), and Megan Hunt (Bridget Regan)? And how should it?
The Season 13 finale left us with a few relationship cliffhangers, from whatever nonsense is happening with Japril + Maggie, to the unresolved stuff between Alex Karev, Jo Wilson, and Jo’s ex. And then there’s Mer, who cannot be happy for one full minute without some new drama threatening to take the happy away.
Season 13 ended with Meredith telling Nathan that Megan was actually alive, fully supporting that he go off to reconnect with his long missing and presumed dead ex-girlfriend. (“If this were Derek, I’d already be gone.” TEARS!) Riggs had a complicated relationship with Megan, since he had cheated on her, and that also caused friction in his friendship with Megan’s brother Owen (Kevin McKidd). So now, not only do we need to see how Megan affects Mer and Riggs, we need to see what’s next for the bromance of Owen and Riggs.
TVLine decided to present its readers with a poll asking what will happen next for the Megan love triangle; here are the results, as of this moment:
• Though Nathan tries to stand by Megan, he continues to be drawn to Mer, and ultimately, he and Grey reunite. 46.57%
• Though Nathan tries to stand by Megan, he continues to be drawn to Mer. But she pushes him away, refusing to be the other woman. 32.23%
• Megan rejects Nathan, so he and Mer resume their relationship. 12.15%
• Nathan helps Megan recover, and, along the way, they rekindle their romance and reunite. 9.05%
It’s possible none of those options will be correct, but the current No. 1 choice closely matches what “Grey’s” already did with Meredith, Derek and Addison. Should that discount it? “Grey’s” does like to repeat storylines, so that may make it the most likely option.
Answers will arrive with “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 14, which premieres this fall on ABC.
