Are you going to a funeral?". Dr. Maggie Pierce then clocks that she has a date and asks Meredith to reveal the mystery man's identity. 

It was announced back in August that Meredith would be given a new love interest for season 15, with showrunner Krista Vernoff confirming that the lead character would "very much be part of our Season of Love".

And yes, she's a surgical marvel with new, game-changing medical ideas she'll be pursuing. But she also hasn't dated at all since Nathan Riggs left. And the one-two punch of meeting Nick Marsh awoke a desire in her that she can't put back to sleep.

"The question this season is not, 'Will Meredith Grey find love again?', but 'With whom will she find love?'."

Well, we now know who that is!

Grey's Anatomy airs on ABC in the US, and on Sky Witness and NOW TV in the UK.
