Meredith Grey is usually the focal point of ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘
Although Grey’s Anatomy shows how the resident surgeons and nurses at the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital interact, the show mainly focuses on Meredith Grey. When the show started, Meredith was an intern at Grace Seattle Hospital.
As the series progressed, fans got to see Meredith grow as an individual and as a doctor to become one of the hospital’s top surgeons. Meredith is the daughter of the highly recognized Ellis Grey, who was depicted as not having been mother-of-the-year.
Despite the challenges Meredith had growing up, she ended up pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor. The night before she began her internship, Meredith had a one-night stand with her would-be husband, Derek Shepherd, whom she met at a bar.
The next day, Meredith realized that Derek was a hired surgeon at the same hospital she was interning. Meredith also has a complicated relationship with the Chief of Surgery at the Grace Seattle hospital Richard Webber. It is worth noting that Richard shared a close bond with Meredith’s mother, Ellis.
Meredith and Derek end up getting married and starting a family. However, in season 11, Derek gets into a car accident and is taken to the Dillard ER, where he dies at the hands of Dr. Penelope Blake. Read from source….
