There will be lots of confusing hurdles for them to pass before they realize the truth: Nobody else understands them the way the other does. If you want to go there with Merlex, you have to dive in the deep end.
The show could certainly use that sort of narrative target, anyway: As it trudges through a snoozefest Eliza Minnick plot, the 13th season is begging for inspiring, gut-wrenching, soul-mate level romantic entanglements.
So many tears have been shed, and thanks to last night's episode, blood has been too...mostly because we found out that some people are already shipping Alex (Justin Chambers) and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). Online's TV Scoop Team LOVE the idea of Meredith and Alex being end game on ABC's long-running medical drama...while some of us think it's the worst idea ever to have existed and can't stop screaming obscenities/flipping desks over at the thought.The gauntlet has been thrown, and this issue has pitted colleague against colleague, friend against friend. Instead of taking it out on each other, we decided to be civilized and put our arguments to good use. Then maybe, , in which the show brutally (and totally unnecessarily) killed off Dr.Here's our point/counterpoint of why you should or shouldn't be shipping Alex and Meredith. Derek Mc Dreamy Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), the ABC medical drama jumped ahead a year in last night's episode to show how everyone moved on from their grief and sadness.While the other Grey Sloan Memorial doctors mourned and moved on in various ways, Meredith had her surprise baby somewhere that was not Grey Sloan Memorial (because clearly we still haven't learned to avoid any other hospitals after Mc Dreamy's disaster) after living alone for the whole pregnancy. Things are going to be okay for her despite her losing the love of her life. This isn't a matter of it being "too soon" for Meredith to move on, because the show has already jumped a year into the future.Plus, the episode that aired last Thursday, February 18, gave “Merlex” fans a glimmer of hope as Mer looked less-than-pleased when Jo and Alex started making out in her backseat. Meredith, Alex, George, Izzie, and Cristina — Meredith and Alex have been through it , Ellen Pompeo speculated how sublimated feelings for Alex could be the root of Meredith’s apparent dislike for his girlfriend, Jo.
We still don’t know whether Jo will accept Alex’s proposal, but if she does, maybe Meredith will pull a Jackson and “speak now” at the wedding rather than forever hold her peace. It would cause love triangle drama with Izzie We’ve already outlined why a now-humbled Katherine Heigl could (and should) return to creator (supposedly) said, “They have a very real sort of brother-sister bond that’s very sweet.” Whether or not Shonda said it IRL or in their imaginations, that assessment of their relationship is certainly true.2.
In terms of serious relationships we saw him support Rebecca/Ava through her accident, marriage, and pregnancy, and experience an on-off fling with Lexie Grey, who wasn't always emotionally OK.
The most damaging relationship was Izzie, who Karev married shortly after she was diagnosed with cancer and went through a near-death experience with, only to have Izzie leave him with a pitiful explanation as to why.
"But then there's so many Alex-Jo fans—like, the Alex-Jo fans are crazyballs!
So it's nice—there's a little bit of something for everybody right now." the highest-rated drama on ABC in its 12th season, with the series continuing to bring in fans who were mere children when it first hit the airwaves.
Of course, the show zigged where we'd all thought and hoped it might zag, pairing Mer (Ellen Pompeo) up with new hottie Riggs (Martin Henderson) as Alex (Justin Chambers) continued to fight for his relationship with Jo (Camilla Luddington).
