Even though we’re not sure exactly how amicable her uterus will be, we have faith that Meredith’s second pregnancy will go better than her first. After all, what are the odds that Derek (Patrick Dempsey) will get shot again, and Cristina (Sandra Oh) will have to operate with a gun to her head again? We’re going to go with very slim … we hope.
And so, with another infant on the way, we can’t help but think about the many pregnancies and pregnancy scares of Seattle Grace-Mercy West. There was the Cristina-Burke (Isaiah Washington) scare, the Cristina-Owen (Kevin McKidd) debacle, the pregnant Bailey (Chandra Wilson), the pregnant Callie (Sara Ramirez) and, most recently, the April (Sarah Drew) scare.
But if dark-and-twisty Meredith can have a baby, we’d say that nobody is off limits. And with a show like Grey's, we assume it's only a matter of time until another doc finds themselves with a bun in the oven.
So who could be next to hop aboard the pregnancy train? Here are the options as we see them:
April: Despite her relief when she found out that she wasn’t pregnant, there was a moment during her scare when April seemed OK with the idea of having a kid. Now the trick is going to be finding a willing participant, because we think it’s safe to say that Jackson (Jesse Williams) isn’t feeling it right now. Oh, who are we kidding? We're hoping these crazy kids work it out.
Cristina: Cristina may have been very anti-baby in the past, but she did spend all of Episode 7 talking about how she's “different.” Now that she cares, could Cristina be ready to have kids (hopefully with Owen)?
Jo: Yes, the intern. After that look Alex (Justin Chambers) gave her at Joe’s last week (not to mention their banter in this sneak peek of Episode 8: “Love Turns You Upside Down”), we have the feeling she might be his person. Could they climb aboard the baby train early on? Stranger things have happened.
Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen): We know this is a long shot, and boy would it be a twist, but based on who has been having sex lately, we had to put Mama Avery on the list. We feel like she had her tubes tied years ago, but you never know. Richard (James Pickens Jr.) never did have a child of his own …
Callie or Arizona (Jessica Capshaw): Sofia could use a sibling, don’t you think? Ugh, where’s Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) when you need him (which is always)? (But really, sperm banks are always an option.)
Bailey: First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes … just sayin’.
Do you think another member of the Grey’s family could join Meredith on the pregnancy train soon? If yes, who’s your pick?
