Ellen Pompeo: Derek, Not Cristina, Should Be Meredith’s “Person” on Grey’s Anatomy
Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Cristina (Sandra Oh), Meredith and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) … who is the stronger Grey's Anatomycouple? Well, to be fair, they’re very different, and we love them both equally. But should Meredith and Cristina still be calling each other their “person” now that they’re married (to other people, obviously)? Or do they mean it in some secret, twisted-sisters kind of way?
According to Ellen, the term “person” should apply to someone else in Meredith’s life other than Cristina. The actress told TVLine: “It’s not very realistic that a married woman would have her best friend be her No. 1 before her husband. I guess if you’re 20. But for a grown woman, your No. 1 person should be your husband — or what’s the point of getting married? Your significant other should be your significant other, so hopefully we’ll transition into that.”
Do you guys agree? Is Derek Meredith’s person? He doesn’t seem to mind Mer and Cristina’s relationship, but do you think he’d rather be her go-to for absolutely everything?
Or is it just that Cristina and Meredith understand each other better than anybody else?
