greys anatomy season 19 finale spoilers meredith nick reunite

Grey’s Anatomy fans may want to put off calling time-of-death on Meredith and Nick’s relationship. Although things looked bleak for the estranged couple when last they spoke — does it get any worse than your girlfriend pretending she hasn’t heard you say you love her? — it ain’t over till it’s over, showrunner Krista Vernoff teased to TVLine on the ABC drama’s recent PaleyFest red carpet.

Although the EP wouldn’t get into specifics, “what I can say is that I still have hope for them as a couple,” she offered. “I think there’s a lot of good there, and fans will have to wait and see” how — and if — they resolve their issues.

We won’t have to wait too terribly long, either. Vernoff hinted that we’d have a sense of where Meredith and Nick’s relationship is headed by the end of Season 19, which wraps on Thursday, May 18, with a two-hour finale marked by Ellen Pompeo’s first post-series-regular appearance. (Leading man Scott Speedman continues to recur.) “I don’t believe in closure as a rule, in life or in storytelling. I think it’s a misnomer,” Vernoff said. “But I think there will be [some]” for Drs. Grey and Marsh.

Certainly, there will be some closure for Vernoff when Season 19 concludes: After six years at the helm, she’s stepping down and leaving her post in Season 20 to Meg Marinis, who has been with the show since Season 3 (and has been an EP since Season 15). Also on her way out is Kelly McCreary, who after nine seasons will last air in a series-regular capacity as Maggie in the Thursday, April 13, episode. Like Pompeo, she is is expected to continue to make guest appearances now and again. (With reporting by Scott Huver)
