Grey’s Anatomy followers knew somebody from days of yore could be returning to the present for the season 18 premiere, however they simply did not know who it might be.
After airing promos teasing that “someone from Meredith’s past comes back,” the venerable ABC hospital drama revealed on Thursday, Sept. 30 that the individual was transplant surgeon Nick Marsh, as performed by Scott Speedman, who’s now a collection common this season. The reunion occurred when Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) ran into him throughout an opportunity encounter at a restaurant in Minnesota whereas she was being recruited by a neurosurgeon portrayed by Peter Gallagher.
Although Nick and Meredith clicked throughout his single season 14 episode, throughout which they flirted as he recovered from surgical procedure to restore his kidney, followers might have been hoping to see somebody they’d had extra time to get to know.
One apparently disenchanted fan tweeted a photograph of Kate Walsh‘s Addison with the message, “Who we wanted,” adopted by a pic of Nick Marsh, who was accompanied by the notice, “Who we got.” Luckily, followers can have that want come true quickly sufficient, as Kate, who departed as a collection common after season three, is certainly set to return this season.
