Grey’s Anatomy Can’t Kill Addison Montgomery

0

Addison Montgomery’s appearance in Grey’s Anatomy season 19, episode 11 had a shocking ending, but her survival is important to the series.

Grey’s Anatomy season 19, episode 11 was an intense episode that focused on Addison Montgomery, but signaled the potential end of her story due to the shocking ending, but killing her off would be a mistake. Addison initially left Grey’s Anatomy in season 3 for its spinoff Private Practice but has returned for Grey’s Anatomy season 19, much to the delight of longtime viewers. Season 19, episode 11, “Training Day,” was part one of a two-part event that saw a protester intentionally run over Addison and a pregnant doctor in the cliffhanger ending, leaving their lives hanging in the balance.

Dr. Addison Montgomery, a double-board certified OB/GYN and fetal surgeon, first appeared on Grey’s Anatomy in the season 1 finale in what has since become an iconic moment in which she confronted Derek and Meredith. While she initially could have been the villain coming in to ruin Derek and Meredith’s relationship, she quickly became a fan favorite with her own depth and stories beyond romance, eventually earning her own spinoff. Addison’s return in Grey’s Anatomy season 19 has only added more depth to her character through the important storyline surrounding reproductive rights in the United States following the overturn of Roe v. Wade.

Without Meredith Grey’s Anatomy Needs Addison As A Recurring Character

Throughout its 19 seasons, Grey’s Anatomy has seen many characters, including Addison, come and go, with only Bailey and Richard remaining as the last two characters remaining from season 1. Meredith’s exit in the Grey’s Anatomy season 19 winter finale, which was slammed by longtime viewers, proved that the show needs to hang on to familiar faces in order to keep running. This is further exacerbated by the recent news that Kelly McReary (Maggie Pierce) will be leaving in April after nine seasons on Grey’s Anatomy. With all the changes, it’s the familiar characters that keep viewers tuning back, and Addison plays a big role in that.

Addison’s original return in Grey’s Anatomy season 18 was highly anticipated and the step up from guest star to recurring in season 19 was even more thrilling. Addison has appeared in three episodes in season 19 thus far and will be returning in episode 12, “Pick Yourself Up,” except this time, she will be a patient rather than the accomplished doctor Grey’s Anatomy viewers have gotten used to seeing. Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed for season 20, and Addison is clearly needed as a recurring character, and her survival is necessary for the series’ survival as well.

Grey’s Anatomy Has A Lot More To Explore With Addison Montgomery

If Addison’s recurring role in Grey’s Anatomy season 19 has proved anything, it’s that there are so many more stories that can be explored and told with her character. Viewers were able to get some satisfaction when Private Practice ended in knowing that Addison finally got the happy ending she’d been wanting for years through creating her own family with her husband Jake and son Henry. However, the recent state of reproductive rights in America has provided an opportunity for important Grey’s Anatomy storylines and Addison, being a renowned OB/GYN, has been placed in the center of the fight for her patients.

Far before the OB/GYNs on Grey’s Anatomy began wearing black scrubs in protest, Addison was addressing abortion rights in Private Practice, with Addison even discussing the recently overturned monumental Roe v. Wade case. Through her work to provide proper care to pregnant people across the nation, regardless of what their state laws allow, Addison became a target, which has put her family and her life in danger. Killing off Addison on Grey’s Anatomy would involve killing off the many unique and important stories she has the chance to tell as an OB/GYN who has faced infertility and passionately fights for abortion rights.

Grey’s Anatomy Likes To Have Shocking Deaths

While Addison should survive this attack, Grey’s Anatomy has a habit of including shocking deaths that kill off beloved main characters. Unlike other Grey’s Anatomy characters like Meredith, who has escaped death numerous times, Addison has been relatively lucky when it comes to avoiding the traumatic experiences other doctors on the show were unable to. Addison was not present for the shooting, the superstorm, the season 13 hospital explosion, nor the plane crash, though she did lose a close friend in Mark Sloan in the latter. To bring Addison back as a recurring character only to kill her would certainly add to Grey’s Anatomy’s shock factor.

If Addison were not to survive, she would be the first major character to die in Grey’s Anatomy since Andrew DeLuca in season 17. As much as Grey’s Anatomy likes to have shocking deaths, they like to have shocking near-death experiences even more, with those occurring far more often than Grey’s Anatomy’s characters actually being killed off. Addison managed to react quickly enough that the car didn’t strike her as badly as the other victim, which fortunately means her likelihood of survival is higher. Addison’s survival is crucial to the future of Grey’s Anatomy and killing her off would be a major mistake.

Grey’s Anatomy Star Describes Filming Without Ellen Pompeo

0

Grey’s Anatomy star Kim Raver describes filming without Ellen Pompeo and reveals what kind of impact she had on the long-running series.

Kim Raver describes what filming Grey’s Anatomy has been like without Ellen Pompeo. After the star’s exit in season 19, other characters have taken on larger roles, including Raver’s Teddy Altman. First appearing on the show in 2009, Teddy has dealt with personal and professional hurdles, and her relationship with Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) remains an important storyline. By focusing on Teddy, the new surgical interns, and others, Grey’s Anatomy has a future beyond Meredith, though Pompeo’s absence will likely still be felt.

In a recent interview with Extra, Raver discusses filming the medical drama since Pompeo’s departure. She shares that Pompeo is still very much a part of Grey’s Anatomy on set. Read Raver’s comments about her former co-star below:

I really still feel her presence there, especially when I was directing, when I was editing. You know, her voice over is there. Just the other day, I saw her, she was biking from her trailer — I guess to go do ADR — so she is very much there, and I think she really paved the way for me, for example, having the opportunity to direct and this wonderful… We are such an ensemble show.”

How Grey’s Anatomy Can Continue Without Meredith

Now that Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed, questions surrounding Pompeo’s future have been brought up. Meredith is still mentioned by other characters, and is expected to make an appearance during the season 19 finale. Beyond that, it remains to be seen how much of her story will be featured. Grey’s Anatomy has introduced a number of new faces though, including Simone (Alexis Floyd), Lucas (Niko Terho), Mika (Midori Francis), and Benson (Harry Shum Jr.), and is already tracking their journeys through Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

Teddy, who has taken over as chief of surgery, is still adjusting to her new position, and the most recent Grey’s Anatomy episode, titled “Training Day,” brought several challenges for her to work through. Seeing her and others carry out different roles suggests there is a plan moving forward. Meredith’s absence could provide more room for characters to develop, and by exploring their stories, Grey’s Anatomy might be able to continue past season 20.

Despite the additional exit of Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary), other longtime cast members, including Raver, help balance out the newcomers. Since Pompeo remains the series’ narrator, there is also the possibility that she could return after season 19. Grey’s Anatomy largely revolved around Pompeo’s character and while many miss her, they will enjoy knowing that she is still involved in some way.

Has Grey’s Anatomy Flatlined? Even Loyal Fans Think It’s Time to End the Show

0

Now that Meredith Grey has officially left Grey Sloan Memorial, even the most die-hard Grey’s Anatomy fans are starting to see the cracks in the show’s facade and agree with a Reddit thread asking the question:

“Anyone else think that Grey’s Anatomy should have ended at least 7 or 8 seasons ago?”

Fans who previously would have passionately argued against that statement are beginning to agree that it may be time for Grey’s Anatomy to end sooner rather than later.

Meredith’s departure may have served as the final, fatal blow to the medical drama, but the trouble started a few seasons ago with what felt like a mass exodus of favorite main characters, including Arizona Robbins, Jackson Avery, Andrew DeLuca and Alex Karev, as well as a slow, downward spiral in the quality of writing.

With so many original characters leaving Redditor Vibrantlifesaver feels that, “Even people that act in the show are done.”

Alex Karev’s Season 16 exit was especially upsetting because of the ridiculous storyline involving him abandoning Jo, his friends, and his career to be with ex-wife Izzie and their secret babies, with DiamondBurInTheRough commenting that they “Gave up after Alex’s departure episode,” and many others agreeing.

Grey’s Anatomy has been on the air for 19 seasons, a number that few other shows have managed to reach, but it seems inevitable that Grey’s Anatomy will run out of ideas for romantic pairings between existing characters, and extreme and shocking medical cases and storylines, having already had a plane crash, a hospital shooter, a bomb in a body, and more.

One of the more recent dramatic plots involving Meredith’s coma had fans comparing Grey’s Anatomy to a soap opera with the cliched “main character in a coma” scenario.

Season 19 introduced a new set of ambitious, competitive interns, one of whom is the nephew of beloved Derek Shepherd, but even this unexpected connection isn’t enough to resuscitate the emotional investment fans once had in the show.

Fans who are still watching are most likely doing so in hopes that Meredith Grey will make a surprise guest appearance in a future episode to address the new interns or maybe step in to help a complex story, as has been teased by other cast members, but may just be a way to keep viewership up.

For those who have followed the journey of the doctors and residents on Grey’s Anatomy since the first episode in 2005, it is hard to let go.

Grey’s Anatomy started with Meredith Grey and should have ended when she left, if not a few seasons before, the show has been clinging to life, but it has come time to consider taking it off life support once and for all.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Renewed for Season 20, Names New Showrunner

0

Executive producer Meg Marinis will take the reins of the ABC drama from the departing Krista Vernoff.

The doors of Grey Sloan Memorial will stay open for another year.

ABC has ordered a 20th season of Grey’s Anatomy, its longest-running primetime scripted series. The hospital drama has also named Meg Marinis as showrunner for the 2023-24 season; she’ll take over for Krista Vernoff, who is stepping away from Grey’s and its spinoff Station 19 at the end of their runs this spring.

Marinis has been with Grey’s Anatomy since its third season and has worked her way up since beginning her tenure there as a writer’s production assistant. She then worked as a writers assistant and medical researcher before moving up the chain of command to executive producer, a title she’s held for the past four seasons. Marinis has written more than 25 episodes of the show.

Grey’s this season has weathered the departure of lead actress Ellen Pompeo as a full-time cast member (though she remains an exec producer and the show’s narrator) while introducing a new class of medical interns. It remains ABC’s top-rated entertainment series among adults 18-49 — and is a top five drama in the key ad demographic across all of broadcast TV — and averages 10.7 million cross-platform viewers over in 35-day ratings, more than triple its same-day total.

The Shonda Rhimes-created Grey’s Anatomy debuted in March 2005 and was an instant hit for ABC, helping fuel the network’s mid-2000s renaissance alongside shows like Desperate Housewives and Lost. It is the longest-running primetime medical drama in American network TV history; the March 23 episode was its 411th. The show’s catalog, which streams on Netflix, is a fixture in Nielsen’s streaming top 10 rankings.

Grey’s Anatomy is the first ABC drama to secure a pickup for next season. It joins comedy Abbott Elementary on the network’s slate for 2023-24.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Renewed for Season 20 at ABC, Meg Marinis Takes Over as Showrunner

0

“Grey’s Anatomy” has been renewed for Season 20 at ABC.

With the renewal, the series continues its run as the longest running primetime medical drama in TV history. In addition, series executive producer Meg Marinis will serve as showrunner on Season 20. Marinis takes over from Krista Vernoff, who was reported to be stepping down from “Grey’s Anatomy” and its spinoff “Station 19” back in January.

The Season 19 finale of “Grey’s Anatomy” will air on May 18. The show has seen a number of exits this season, most notably Vernoff and Kelly McCreary (who’s played Dr. Maggie Pierce for nine seasons) — and series lead Ellen Pompeo, kind of. Pompeo has been with the show since it debuted, but in the Feb. 23 episode, her character Meredith Grey moved from Seattle to Boston. She will continue to provide the voiceover at the beginning and end of each episodes, and she’ll also appear on the finale. Pompeo’s status for Season 20 is still up in the air.

Even this late in its run, “Grey’s Anatomy” remains popular for ABC, ranking as the network’s number one show in the adults 18-49 demographic. Per ABC, it is currently averaging 10.7 million viewers per episode in Live+35 viewing across all platforms.

Along with Pompeo, the Season 19 cast of “Grey’s Anatomy” also includes Chandra Wilson, James Pickens, Jr., Kevin McKidd, Caterina Scorsone, Camilla Luddington, Kelly McCreary, Kim Raver, Jake Borelli, Chris Carmack, Anthony Hill, Alexis Floyd, Harry Shum Jr., Adelaide Kane, Midori Francis, Niko Terho, and Scott Speedman. Kate Walsh also recurred as Dr. Addison Montgomery, with series alums Jesse Williams and Greg Germann guest starring.

Marinis has been with “Grey’s Anatomy” since Season 3, working as a writer’s produciton assistant. She worked her way up from there, becoming an executive producer in Season 15. She has written more than 25 episodes of the series to date.

Marinis is repped by UTA and Hirsch Wallerstein.

Make it Two: Grey’s Anatomy on Edge of Losing Another Main Character

0

Grey’s Anatomy fans have not yet had time to get over the departure of main character Meredith Grey, as it was recently announced that Maggie Pierce will also be leaving the series.

Usually after the black stripe comes the white, but apparently not in this case, as another favorite character is in jeopardy.

Over the course of nineteen seasons, the show had many characters who left and returned, but it was Addison Montgomery who became the favorite of many.

Dr. Addison Montgomery made her debut in the season one finale. She is the unexpectedly arrived wife of Derek Shepherd, who moved to Seattle at that time to improve relations with her husband.

Kate Walsh played the role for two seasons before leaving the project in 2007 to focus on filming the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Private Practice, in which Addison was the lead.

Addison made a guest appearance in the 18th season of the series and continued her participation in the 19th season.

Although now it seems that the creators, who only brought back favorite character, are going to deprive the viewers of her again.

On the March 23 episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Addison was run down by an anti-abortion protester, ending the episode and leaving viewers in the dark about how badly Addison was hurt.

The episode reflects the height of the danger faced by Addison, who traveled across the country in a mobile clinic, Station 19, to provide abortions to people living in states where abortion is not available.

In one scene, Addison explains to Bailey the dire situation for obstetricians and gynecologists: clinics have been set on fire and doctors have been attacked by protestors.

In addition, all of Addison’s personal information has been made public, allowing particularly determined stalkers to ruin her life.

Despite her attempts to hide her presence in Seattle, her whereabouts have been traced.

Fans are hoping Addison avoids the fate of Meredith and Maggie, as she returned to the show only to leave so quickly.

Other viewers believe that it is high time for the show to end, as the plot has been exhausted and the writers simply do not know what to do with the characters.

“The writing is quite poor and very repeative. The storyline have some plot holes, or are super predicable, or make no sense. Also a lot if newer main characters are not developed enough and are mainly used as another main character love interest,” Reddit user SnooCats9041 commented.

Viewers will be able to find out Addison’s fate on March 30 when the next episode airs on ABC.

Addison Montgomery Remains Happily Married and Is Back on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

0

Few characters have a longer history with Grey’s Anatomy than Addison Montgomery, who was part of the foundational cast of the show. Although Addison was off the show for years, she has returned as a recurring character on the show’s 19th season.

Now that she’s back, many fans want to know who Addison’s husband is following decades of romantic turmoil. Here’s what we know.

Who is Addison Montgomery’s husband?
At the beginning of Grey’s Anatomy, Addison was married to Derek Shepherd. After the two got divorced, though, Addison moved to Los Angeles as the foundation for her own spin-off series, Private Practice. It was on that show that Addison eventually met her husband Jake Reilly, and they initially struggled with fertility before adopting a son named Henry together.

Is Addison Montgomery still married to Jake Reilly?

Following her return to Grey’s Anatomy, many noted that Jake has yet to make an appearance. As a result, some were wondering whether Addison is still married, or whether they might have missed some turmoil that eventually separated them. Although it’s possible that Addison is withholding that information, it seems like Addison and Jake are still happily married, even though Jake isn’t appearing on the series with Addison.

Jake’s absence from the show likely has more to do with scheduling conflicts than it does with any change that has happened in their relationship. Of course, Addison has plenty of other relationships with people in the Grey’s universe, and the show has focused on those since her return to the show. In particular, the show has emphasized her relationships with both Amelia and Tovah.

Jake and Addison did struggle during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As we learned on Grey’s, Addison and Jake did go through some marital strife during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, when they were forced to be with each other at all times.

Jake and Henry fought about Game of Thrones, and Addison simply couldn’t take all the arguing anymore. She began to drink to excess, and even considered checking herself into rehab to deal with her alcohol problem.

Eventually, Addison met Tovah, and that relationship and her desire to help Tovah gave her the spark she needed to get back to her life. That marital strife was likely relatable to many people who had to live through the pandemic with a spouse.

Even the people we love most can drive us a little bit crazy if we spend too much time with them.

Ultimately, though, it seems that Addison really got her happy ending with Jake, and while that doesn’t mean that everything in her life is perfect, she certainly seems to be content in her romantic relationship.

Of course, this is Grey’s Anatomy, so anything can happen…

For now, though, Addison is happily married to Jake Reilly, and has been for roughly a decade. Sometimes, even in the world of Grey’s Anatomy, a love can actually endure in the long term.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Star Kim Raver on Ellen Pompeo’s Exit and Her Directorial Debut

0

Just weeks ago, Ellen Pompeo bid farewell to “Grey’s Anatomy.”

“Extra’s” Rachel Lindsay spoke with “Grey’s Anatomy” star Kim Raver about Ellen’s exit as a series regular and how that has changed things, as well as her directorial debut!

Kim shared that while Ellen is gone, her impact will always be felt.

Kim shared, “I really still feel her presence there, especially when I was directing, when I was editing. You know, her voice over is there. Just the other day, I saw her, she was biking from her trailer — I guess to go do ADR — so she is very much there, and I think she really paved the way for me, for example, having the opportunity to direct and this wonderful… We are such an ensemble show.”

As for the biggest difference on set, Raver commented, “I think it feels the same in the sense that Ellen in her 19 years opened the doors for many women and I feel lucky to have the opportunities that I do because of that.”

Kim’s character Dr. Teddy has now taken over as the new boss lady, and behind the camera, she has just directed her first episode of the show.

The reproductive rights episode that Kim directed is ripped from the headlines.

Raver admitted it was a “mind-blowing” challenge to do double duty. Of the multi-tasking involved, she elaborated, “Imagine you’re driving a car, building a house, while teaching your kids how to ski and parachuting out of a plane… I loved every single minute of it.”

She went on, “I feel like we get to tell the quintessential ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ story of people trying to find their way and how can we raise them up and support them. It’s like you get this beautiful story to tell, the huge responsibility of that as well.”

Raver got her acting start on “Sesame Street” when she was a child.

She reflected on her early acting days, saying, “When I was coming up in my career as an actress, people were like, ‘Just stay in your lane. Women don’t do all these other things.’ And then you see these incredible women in Shondaland and it gives you this amazing spark of imagination that I knew I wanted to do my solo directorial debut at ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’”

The show’s creator Shonda Rhimes has long championed women on- and off-screen.

Is she going to do more directing in the future? Kim answered, “Well, Debbie Allen asked me to direct another episode… I’m so excited to keep getting better at it and learning and telling more stories.”

Raver also revealed what she hopes to see going forward for her character Dr. Teddy Altman. She said, “I can’t wait to see Teddy evolve in these new choices and in her work field and friendships and in her marriage.”

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursday on ABC.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star Jake Borelli reacts to ‘horrifying’ laws restricting drag shows and queer marriage: ‘It feels like we’re being pushed backwards’

0

In a recent interview with Insider, “Grey’s Anatomy” star Jake Borelli shared his feelings on the recent anti-LGBTQ marriage legislation and anti-trans legislation that’s currently being proposed and passed in some states around the country, most notably in Tennessee.

“It’s horrifying. It feels like we’re being pushed backward, that we’re being forced to take steps backwards,” he said. “I’m afraid about it, especially not knowing what the next administration is going to be like.”

A Tennessee bill outlawing “adult cabaret performances” done “on public property or in a location where the adult cabaret performance could be viewed by a person who is not an adult,” was signed into law by Governor Bill Lee on March 2. According to reporting by Insider’s Yelena Dzhanova, the law identifies “male and female impersonators” — drag kings and drag queens — as adult cabaret performers. The law is a class E felony in the state, which means it carries a jail sentence of up to six years.

“I think now is a time to remain a community and to support people within our queer community who don’t have as many rights as others, and to really look out for our trans partners,” said Borelli.

The actor told the public he was gay in 2018 via an Instagram post. He said he was inspired to tell the world about his sexuality in part because of the “Grey’s Anatomy” storyline in which his character Dr. Levi Schmitt came out as queer.

“We all need to stay together at this point because they’re going to keep trying to push us back. And it’s horrifying,” he continued.

“Grey’s Anatomy” has explicitly addressed recent controversial changes in legislation in season 19 of the show, which is currently airing. Three out of the first nine episodes of the season addressed abortion, seemingly in response to the restrictions being imposed around the country after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June 2002.

In the episode titled “When I Get To The Border,” which aired in November 2022, a patient in need of an emergency abortion because of an ectopic pregnancy died in part because of abortion restrictions, which now vary state by state.

Borelli said the “Grey’s Anatomy” writers are “wonderful” about talking to him and other actors about the issues they care about. He’s hopeful that an episode involving drag queens will be written soon.

“Oh, I’ve pitched a drag storyline so many times, and then they did an episode of ‘Station 19’ with some drag queens, which I was like, “No, I wanted you to do it on ‘Grey’s,'” he said jokingly, referring to the firefighter-paramedic spinoff that airs in the timeslot before “Grey’s” on Thursday nights.

Borelli says the FDA restrictions on certain people donating blood are ‘hypocritical’

One issue important to Borelli that has made it into a storyline on “Grey’s” is the restrictions that the FDA put on gay, pansexual, and bisexual men, as well as other men who have sex with men, if they want to donate blood. 

On the season 18 finale of the show, which aired in May 2022, Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital faced a blood shortage and Dr. Schmitt couldn’t donate blood because he had been sexually active with a man within the last three months.

According to the American Red Cross, the deference period of three months is still in place at the time of this writing.

Borelli said he’d been pitching the storyline “for years” because during one of Levi’s early episodes, before he came to terms with his sexuality, he was goaded into donating blood to save a patient’s life and then given the nickname “Blood Bank.”

According to NPR, the donation restrictions were put in place during the AIDS epidemic to “protect the blood supply from HIV” and were last updated in 2020.

Borelli pointed out that when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the abstinence period was decreased from one year to three months “because they needed our blood.”

“It’s so hypocritical and so….it pisses me off so much. So I was so excited to tell the story, and I really hope we pick up on it again,” he said, reflecting on the restrictions and the “Grey’s” storyline. He noted that the guidelines aren’t based on science” because every donor’s blood is tested before going to potential recipients.

On January 27, 2023, the FDA released potential blood donation guidelines for men who have sex with men and their partners. The proposed change would shift the restrictions from being time-based to being based on “individual risk-based questions to reduce the risk of transfusion-transmitted HIV.” This system is already being used in the UK and Canada but is still pending in the US.

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on ABC.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Kim Raver on Why Teddy & Owen’s ‘Really Messed Up Choices’ Make Them ‘Beautiful’

0
GREY’S ANATOMY - "Life on Mars?" - A wealthy inventor arrives at Grey Sloan and asks Koracick for help, while Meredith struggles to save a woman with diabetes who has been rationing her insulin. Jo and Link fight to save a young man who fell onto train tracks, and Jackson and Vic's relationship hits a snag, on an all-new episode of "Grey's Anatomy," THURSDAY, MARCH 12 (9:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (ABC/Gilles Mingasson) KIM RAVER, KEVIN MCKIDD

Dare we say things are looking up for Dr. Teddy Altman (Kim Raver) and Dr. Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) on Grey’s Anatomy? But will it stay that way?

At the end of the episode “Training Day,” which Raver directed, things seemed the best they’ve been in a long time for the couple, but could that be because the weight is off both of them as individuals now that they’ve settled into where they should be professionally, her as chief of surgery and him as chief of trauma?

“I think they made so many really messed up choices, really bad choices. And what’s so beautiful about them is I love that fans got angry at that. You know why? Because they were messed up choices and they’re flawed people,” Raver told TV Insider. “And I love that they are coming out the other side because I feel like it shows that we’re portraying real flawed human beings.”

She continued, “Now they’re coming into their moments where they’re both thriving and they both can be badass surgeons and chiefs and husband and wife and parents. I really would love to see them thrive together and figuring out this new place in their life. I think in Hollywood we always see these perfect couples falling in love and everything is great or we see them completely tearing each other apart. I think it’s so beautiful to see a healthy, normal relationship that has its ups and downs and how they navigate these amazing new places in their careers.”

The good news is that while it wouldn’t be Grey’s without some drama down the line for one of its couples, it sounds like for now, fans of this one can breathe a sigh of relief. Rather, the focus is now shifting to their careers.

“How is Teddy going to be the best chief that she can?” Raver wondered about the position she’s enjoying her character in. “I think they’re starting to incorporate Teddy wanting to make changes for the interns, which feels very right in the climate that we are in, that we’re looking at mental health and how to protect our so-called next class that’s coming up, next generation. I’m loving getting to work with all of the new interns and all of those really fun stories. They have such fabulous stories coming up and those actors are so talented.”
Speaking of the interns, she couldn’t say enough good things about them as actors and supporting her in her Grey’s directorial debut with the March 23 episode. “To be able to work with the new cast members and really get to know who they are, we’re so lucky. They’re so talented and such lovely human beings. And I don’t mean to be all mushy, but I’m going to be all mushy because I love them all so much because I really got to dig deep and they also were so supportive and they were like, ‘You’ve got this, you can do it. It’s going to be so great,’” Raver shared.

Let’s just hope the relationship drama sticks with the interns for a while.

Grey’s Anatomy, Thursdays, 9/8c, ABC
