Love is in the air for the doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital!
According to actor Martin Henderson, fans of the hit ABC series “Grey’s Anatomy” can expect his character, New Zealand newcomer Nathan Riggs, to get some lip-locking action before show’s Season 12 finale. And the easy-on-the-eyes doc won’t be the only one to get some loving!
Giacomo Gianniotti dished to “Entertainment Tonight” that audiences can expect Maggie’s (Kelly McCreary) ex beau, Andrew DeLuca, to get hot and heavy in a forthcoming episode, too.
“Things are getting juicy,” he teased, revealing that it won’t take DeLuca long to bounce back from his breakup. But could his rebound be with the person he’s trying to bounce back from? In a previous episode, DeLuca broke up with Maggie after she went public with their relationship — an announcement that DeLuca previously wanted her to make before he heard his co-workers complaining about nepotism within the hospital. Will distance from Maggie make DeLuca’s heart grow fonder?
Unfortunately for MaLuca shippers, it looks like the intern will catch the eye of another lucky lady. “They’re throwing me into different people’s storylines now that DeLuca and Maggie had gone their separate ways,” Gianniotti hinted at the end of Maggie and DeLuca.
But while some scrub-sporting characters will embark on new, sizzling romances, other relationships will fizzle out, like Ben (Jason George) and Bailey’s (Chandra Wilson). Ben was given a six-month suspension after he defied hospital protocol, resulting in the death of two patients. But Bailey revealed in the heart-wrenching installment that if Ben’s fate was left solely in her hands, she would have had the reckless resident hang up his scrubs permanently.
“Can they come back from this is a good question; and even now a few weeks later, my answer is, ‘I don’t know,’” George dished to Entertainment Weekly, adding that there’s a “trust deficit” right now in their relationship.
The actor continued to explain that it’s going “to be hard” for these to love birds to get back on track. “She’s lost faith and respect for him as a surgeon, and he’s lost faith and respect in her as a spouse,” he told “Entertainment Tonight.”
“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
