Grey’s Anatomy said goodbye to Meredith Grey in the winter premiere. Did Nick choose to leave for Boston with her, or is Scott Speedman sticking around?
When Scott Speedman was demoted to recurring guest star for Grey’s Anatomy Season 19, we worried what that would mean for Meredith and Nick. Then we found out that Ellen Pompeo was going to only be in a handful of episodes.
At first, it looked like Nick left Meredith in the Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 finale. Then he turned back up, and things looked good for Meredith and Nick. Then Meredith made the decision to move to Boston and didn’t talk to Nick about it. Nick had no idea what he was going to do, or what it meant for him and Meredith.
Did Nick leave with Meredith in Grey’s Anatomy?
Nick was understandably angry that Meredith left him out of the discussion. Did that mean that they weren’t as serious as he thought? They finally spoke about it, and that’s when Meredith said it all.
When Meredith told Nick she loved him, he didn’t say it back. It turns out that he still hasn’t said it. Meredith took that as things not being as serious for him, so she didn’t include him in her decisions when it came to doing the right thing for Zola. And that’s what this move is. It’s all about Zola, and as a mother, I can’t fault Meredith for what she did.
As Meredith went to her surprise party and then headed to the airport, Nick went to Joe’s bar. That was where Helm was able to give him a talk about how amazing Meredith Grey is. While it worked, it was too late for Nick to get on the plane. He ended up calling her to tell her he loved her, but she decided to tell him that she couldn’t hear him, she was about to takeoff, and hung up.
I guess we’ll have to wait to see what’s going on between the two of them. Things are still open.
