Grey?s Anatomy Season 13 spoilers are being anticipated as fans wait to find out more about the future of Meredith Grey?s new romance which she found at the end of Season 12.
Luckily, actor Martin Henderson, who plays Meredith?s new interest, Nathan Riggs, made a big reveal to fans saying that their romance will continue to be a focus in Grey?s Anatomy Season 13 and even teased a bit about the connection between Meredith and Nathan.
Henderson said what may bode well for their potential romance is their ?shared loss? and just the fact that maybe [he can be] someone in her life that she can relate to on that level.? He added, ?I think that?s always really powerful between a couple. [It] may be fertile ground for them to actually have a relationship with some meaning.?
Henderson also teased a bit about what fans will see if the relationship between the pair moves forward. He teased the following: ?Nathan is irreverent and kind of calls Meredith on her s?, and that might be really good for her, because he doesn?t take [things] all that seriously. It might be nice for her to have the opportunity to actually lighten up a bit around some stuff.?
Nathan could be Meredith’s first serious romance since Derek’s death, but according to actress Ellen Pompeo, he will never be the next McDreamy, the character essayed by Patrick Dempsey.
?There will only be one McDreamy ever,? she told IBTimes. ?You know, he’s not replaceable. Sure, you may have other relationships, and you may even marry again,? Pompeo noted, ?but everybody has that one great love.?
Last Season?s penultimate episode saw a withdrawn Meredith unexpectedly warm up to Riggs after their bickering in the parking lot led to a surprisingly steamy hook up in a car. In the Season 12 Finale, Meredith was even looking like she was ready to give things with Riggs a try. However, Maggie then told her that she really likes Riggs, and thinks that he likes her too. This is expected to lead to a complicated love triangle, especially since Meredith and Maggie are half-sisters.
However, Grey?s Anatomy executive producer Betsy Beers teased yet another love triangle between Meredith, Riggs and Alex Karev as he hinted that the doctor?s friendship with Alex could well blossom into something more.
?Look, they?re best friends,? Beers told E! News about a possible love connection between the two characters (Mer and Alex). ?I think emotionally?and I?ve always been a giant Alex fan, like from the beginning? So any given chance, I was about Alex. He?s deep.?
Grey?s Anatomy Season 13 is set to return to ABC this fall.
