When Nick Marsh (Scott Speedman) was returned in the season 18 premiere, many Grey’s Anatomy viewers were sceptical about Meredith Grey’s (Ellen Pompeo) new love interest. Some fans were concerned that the returning character would be unable to compete with Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), Cormac “McWidow” Hayes (Richard Flood), and even Andrew DeLuca (Patrick Dempsey) (Giacomo Gianniotti). Now that the new season of Grey’s Anatomy has aired a few episodes, it appears that many viewers of the ABC medical drama are still sceptical about Meredith and Nick’s relationship.
Meredith Grey and Nick Marsh reunite In Season 18 of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’
Many fans hoped to see Nick and Meredith together when they met in Grey’s Anatomy Season 14. After saving the transplant surgeon’s kidney, however, the general surgeon vanished. Despite this, Nick made an appearance in the season 18 opener, and he’s been getting along with Meredith while she alternates between Minnesota and Seattle.
In Grey’s Anatomy Season 18 Episode 6, “Every Day Is a Holiday (With You),” Meredith and Nick appear to be getting more screen time together. Nick recommends to Meredith that they spend Thanksgiving together at a cabin in the previews. The general surgeon, of course, must return to Seattle to see her children. However, Meredith’s trip has been cancelled due to bad weather, indicating that Meredith and Nick could be dating shortly.
Why does ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ have such a strong following? Meredith Grey and Nick Marsh’s romance has not been well received by fans.
Before the November 18 premiere of Grey’s Anatomy Season 18, ABC published a teaser featuring Meredith and Nick flirting. After that, many spectators expressed their true feelings about the match in the comments section. One fan expressed their desire for Hayes on Instagram. Another person expressed dissatisfaction with all of the Nick scenes.
On Instagram, a viewer said, “Stop shoving Nick on my screen.” “I’m not interested in him,” says the narrator.
Meanwhile, some Grey’s Anatomy viewers are sceptical about Nick and Meredith’s pairing. A user on Reddit commented on the coupling feeling “odd” and “forced” after the programme on November 11th. Then they speculated that the ABC drama would be “laying the groundwork for a major subplot” in the future. Because he hasn’t been seen with anybody other than Meredith, many other viewers have begun to wonder if Nick is real.
Regardless, a few Grey’s Anatomy viewers hypothesised that the issue is “the entire Minnesota narrative and how it doesn’t match up with the rest of the programme,” rather than Nick. Another viewer asked if fans of Nick and Meredith will warm up to them “after we [saw] him more integrated” with the other characters.
In Season 18 of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ Scott Speedman and Ellen Pompeo discuss the connection between Nick Marsh and Meredith Grey.
Despite the fact that many Grey’s Anatomy fans don’t appear to believe in Meredith and Nick’s romance, it’s likely that viewers will eventually change their minds. Pompeo promised that the “viewer will sense” the chemistry between Nick and Meredith when Speedman joined the medical drama as a series regular.
Meanwhile, Speedman appears to be aware of Grey’s Anatomy viewers’ general reaction. He’s optimistic, though, that he’ll be able to convert them shortly.
“At first, [the fans] were sceptical, but I believe I’m winning them over.” On Nov. 18, while On Air With Ryan Seacrest, Speedman said, “I’m not sure.” “However, they were instantly enthralled….” It was not well received by them. So, by the conclusion of the season, we’ll see how it goes.”
