Grey’s Anatomy Season 13: Ellen Pompeo Not Feeling Alex-Meredith Romance, ‘It’s Weird!’

Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 is exploring a lot of challenges in relationships that were cemented in friendship. One of them is that of Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers). Since the exit of McDreamy, all eyes have been on who Meredith will date or marry.

The makers of Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 tried to dangle the newest addition Nathan Riggs (Martin Henderson) as the lead’s love interest. But it looks like their chemistry ain’t working that great. With Alex, Meredith has her moments- they have gone through a lot together. But then after 13 seasons, to see them as lovers is a bit unsettling.

Grey’s Anatomy Season 13: Ellen Pompeo Speaks About Alex Speculations

Ellen Pompeo is not very sure if the whole Meredith-Alex chemistry is going to be a good thing for the show. The two have almost forged a sibling kind of relationship with each other. The exit of Yang (Sandra Oh) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) brought Meredith and Alex closer.

Since the spot to make a place in Meredith’s heart is open, fans are wondering if Shonda will make “Merex” happen. Pompeo says it will be ‘weird’ to consider Justin Chambers as her love interest. She says, “It will be like kissing my brother”. Ouch, here goes all the expectations we had to see them together.

Pompeo is sending a word of caution to her fans to not have high expectations about ‘Merex’ happening. But she leaves a glimmer of hope saying that Shonda can make anything happen.

Justin Chambers Thoughts On Merex

Since the time Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 began, a major chunk of the plot has been revolving around Alex. The fight with intern Andrew, the legal case, break-up with Jo and his relationship with Meredith have all been covered till now.

Chambers spoke to E News saying, “Meredith and Alex are very much like siblings”. He says anything is possible in Grey’s Anatomy. Yes, we know Justin! We are still reeling under the impact of Derek Shepherd’s death and so many other ghastly twists and turns.

The plot of Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 is currently running on present chief Miranda Bailey’s tussle with the rest of the residents. She is trying to do her job right but in the process, she is letting go the relationships within the hospital, especially with Dr.Webber.

Will Shonda Rhimes spin a totally unexpected turn this season? Will she make Merex happen? Like the rest of the world and the cast of Grey’s Anatomy, one will have to wait and see.
