In a sneak peek for Thursday’s episode obtained by People, Meredith shows up to work all done up. After her coworkers grill her, she reveals that she’s going on a blind "lunch" date.
In the clip, Meredith’s sister-in-law Amelia Shepard walks in and asks, “What happened? Are you going to a funeral?” (To be fair...it's pretty rare to see Mer wearing anything other than scrubs.)“What’s wrong with you?” Alex Karev says. “You look weird.” “Oh my god, you have a date,” Maggie Pierce says.
After she’s pumped for details, Meredith admits that she’s never met the guy before and doesn’t even know what he looks like. But we do!
Some fans are pretty freaking pumped about the news:
Others (especially devoted Scott Speedman fans who loved his character's past chemistry with Meredith) are...less than excited about this:
And, of course, the inevitable HIMYM jokes are already flying:
No word yet on Josh’s character (other than the fact that he might be the next big thing in Meredith’s life) but I can’t WAIT to see how this plays out!
