Grey’s Anatomy Season 10: Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey Cozy Up at Table Read (PHOTO)
It’s the middle of July, which means we only have about two months until Grey’s Anatomy returns. While ABC has yet to release an official premiere date, we’re ready for Season 10 to kick off, and we’re guessing that will be at the end of September. Until then, we have a first look to tide us over — and it happens to be of golden couple, Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd!
While at the first table read yesterday, July 15, the beloved couple’s portrayers took a moment to cozy up, snapping an adorable picture for their fans. “It’s on,” Ellen Pompeo (Meredith) captioned her Instagram photo, which shows her biting her lip adorably as she rests her hand on Derek’s chest — erm, we mean Patrick Dempsey. Oh, and they’re matching in black. Too cute!
Can we take a moment to acknowledge that Grey’s is headed into its tenth season and these two look better than ever? Seriously, it’s like they haven’t aged since stepping foot into Seattle Grace nearly a decade ago. We’re impressed, and if you need us, we’ll be swooning over MerDer indefinitely.
In all seriousness, it’s great to see the gang back together. We’re sure that Shonda Rhimes has a lot of dramatic tricks up her sleeve for this season, but for now, we’ll enjoy this moment of happiness for the on-screen couple. There are a few things we want for them this season, but above all else, it’s that their characters are happy, their little family is healthy, and they have a lot of scenes together.
