On Thursday’s episode of the ABC medical drama show “Grey’s Anatomy”, Meredith Grey makes a decision that can result in the end of her career at the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, the character of Dr Miranda Bailey played by Chandra Wilson talks to Meredith after learning the news of her new job offer as earlier Meredith received an offer from Ohio. Bailey asked her “You couldn’t tell me yourself? You couldn’t give me that much respect?” To this Grey replied “No, I haven’t made a decision yet”. Then speaking to her lover Dr Nick Marsh played by Scott Speedman, Meredith told him, “You can’t stay at the place you did your residency forever because that’s how people see you. They see you for who you were not as the person you’ve become. I’m ready to move on. I’m going to take that offer.”
On March this year, Meredith did a successful operation on Dr David Hamilton played by Peter Gallagher following her extensive research that can be a landmark achievement in the cure of Parkinson’s, Dr Hamilton gives her an offer, telling, “On behalf of The Clinic’s leadership, we hope you will accept our offer for you to join us here in a permanent position as Director of The Grey Center and Chief of General Surgery.” Hoping that Meredith will move to Ohio, he asks her, “When can you start?”. Grey is left astonished and talks to her boyfriend Nick saying that her life and kids are in Seattle. Nick says “Maybe I could meet your kids and we could have a life here?”
Although, it is uncertain how this decision will impact Dr Meredith Grey’s life, ABC has confirmed that she will reprise her role in the next season. The show’s creator Shonda Rhimes added, “I couldn’t be more excited that we get to keep telling the stories of Meredith, Bailey, Richard and all of the other doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial for another season. This is a true testament to Krista Vernoff, the cast, the crew and all the writers who keep the audience on the edge of their seat week after week.”
On December last year, Ellen Pompeo disclosed during an interview that she is ready for Grey’s Anatomy to end, expressing, “I’ve been trying to focus on convincing everybody that it should end. I feel like I’m the super naive one who keeps saying, ‘But what’s the story going to be, what story are we going to tell?” However, she noted that the medical drama will resume. Grey’s Anatomy airs on ABC at 9m every Thursday.
