Meredith Grey seems to have found herself a man.
In the sneak peek of Thursday’s episode, she is all done up and ready to go on a blind date.
Could Ted Mosby be the lucky guy?
How I Met Your Mother‘s Josh Radnor is confirmed to be joining the show, but it is unclear how many episodes he will be in. Most details are being withheld but Radnor’s character will debut in this Thursday’s episode.
“Meredith didn’t really date originally. She fell in love with McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey). And for a little while there when he turned out to be married to someone else, there was some sleeping around by way of comfort and there was McVet (Chris O’Donnell),” Showrunner Krista Vernoff said. “And then she was with Derek and then she was married and having kids, and then suddenly and painfully, she became a widow. Then, there was a rebound romance or two. Martin Henderson was terrific, but it’s hard for me to think of Riggs as anything but a rebound because of how soon he came in after Derek. And then last season, she focused on work and became something of a medical superhero.
“Now, she’s really single, she’s past the intense, initial grief,” Vernoff continued. “Derek will always be with her — in her heart and in the faces and hearts of their kids — but he’s gone and she’s still here and at the end of the season premiere, she’s admitting that she wants more. She’s agreeing with Cece [Caroline Clay], the matchmaker, that there is no cap on happiness. That she can be happy with her career and her kids but having someone to share it all with might be really nice. And that means putting herself out there in a whole new way. Actually seeking love. That’s brand-new. And Ellen Pompeo is showing colors this season that I’ve just never seen from her before, which is seriously impressive after 15 seasons of playing the same character!”
Hopefully, Radnor sticks around. Sometimes love is the best medicine.
