That’s not all that happens, Meredith finally shares a drink with Cormac at the hospital which can be seen as a hint of a developing romantic relationship between the two.
The cast and crew of the show teased a few spoilers ahead of the release of the new season
Meg Marinis, the show’s executive producer told TVLine, “She just got out of the COVID crisis, and her career and her family have always come first,” She added “I think Meredith is open but definitely not looking.”
Since losing DeLuca, Meredith has been connecting well with Cormac.
It seems like the character’s near-death experience will encourage her to push herself more than ever. She might choose to focus on herself and put her happiness first.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight Camilla Ludington said, “It is like her eighth near-death experience,”
She added “I think it made her focus on what matters to her and all of these things that don’t necessarily matter in her life and streamlined her into thinking more about future big decisions for herself.”
The fans are curious to watch the scenes between Meredith and her late mother.
