This season of Grey’s Anatomy (Wednesday’s at 9 p.m. ET on CTV) has been forcing relationships where they had no business being forced. We’ve tried giving new relationships a shot and hanging in there with relationships that should have died years ago, but at long last on Wednesday night we finally got a hook up that doesn’t leave a bad taste in our mouth. Enter, Limelia. Amink? Whatever, Link and Amelia went from coworkers who didn’t know each other’s names to friends with benefits all thanks to a medical conference and continental breakfast. Man, we love free breakfast.
Amelia has been going through it (see: EVERYTHING) with Owen for the past few seasons. Everything includes addiction, a brain tumour, cold feet, a divorce, a casual sexual relationship, parenthood, losing children, getting children back (but only one of them), and the arrival of Teddy and the ensuing baby mama drama. We are exhausted. So is Amelia, which is why she finally ended things with Owen during last week’s episode. Yas kween.
As previously stated, Owen is the worst. Amelia deserves to have some fun and we can’t think of anyone more fun than the ab-licious Link. He’s been on the show for 16 episodes and this is the first time we’ve seen him without a shirt on. We were starting to think we were going to see a baby in a bag before we saw Link sans shirt.
Even with Amelia’s warning that their hookup wasn’t going anywhere, this is Grey’s, so obviously things are about to get real, real messy. The countdown is on for Amelia and Link getting caught together in the on-call room. And if they do, so be it. They’re both single, they both want to rid the world of opioid addiction, and Link, who has chin muscles, is smart enough to know that their pairing should be referred to as Batman and Batman. None of this Robin business.
One couple we have been feeling this season is Teddy and Tom, and as we suspected, Owen is being a total Owen about it and is intent on ruining the pair’s relationship. On Wednesday night, Tom returned early from a conference (so many medical conferences this episode) to Owen hugging a tearful Teddy who had to deliver a premature baby. We know, we know, Owen was just being a good friend, but we are still placing all the blame on him if things don’t work out with Tom and Teddy. We have endured 11 seasons of his BS. We are allowed to irrationally blame him if we want to at this point.
As for couples that we are no longer cosigning, there’s Meredith and DeLuca. We were on board with the whole MerDeL thing at first. It seemed fun and hot and even a little dangerous with the whole Attending/Resident angle and we liked that this time around it was an older woman and a younger man. But now? Now it feels like DeLuca is trying to turn Meredith into a nagging girlfriend, annoyed that she doesn’t want to hook up at work and lashing out when his father’s experiment fails. As we’ve seen before, DeLuca only likes to do things when they’re on his terms. He broke up with Maggie when people found out they were together. He fought constantly with his ex-girlfriend Sam. And now he seems intent on acting like a jealous high school boyfriend while dating a woman who is a world-renowned surgeon and a mother with three children. She (clap) doesn’t (clap) have (clap) time (clap) to (clap) babysit (clap) your (clap) feelings (clap). How do you say, “It’s time to grow up” in Italian?
As for Maggie and Jackson, they can have each other. A big EWWW to them labeling themselves as the ‘Genius Surgeon’ and ‘Merman.’ We are equally grossed out by both titles.
Lastly, really looking forward to Jo meeting her birth-mother and finally getting to use her British accent Cheers, Camilla Luddington.
