The moment Addison showed up in Grey’s Anatomy Season 18, the Grey Sloan residents started buzzing about her history with Meredith and Derek. In case you don’t remember, Addison is Derek’s ex-wife, and they were still married when he met Meredith in season 1. So yeah, it’s complicated.
Nevertheless, Meredith and Addison maintained a solid professional relationship, and they even shared a laugh together amid all of the residents’ rumors.
But once the two stepped into the elevator, Addison’s laughter immediately turned into tears. Meredith stopped the elevator, and Addison finally let it all out. She said:
“I thought coming back here to Seattle, to Grey Sloan, that he’d be there, that I would still be able to feel that he was still here in the city that he loved, with the people that he loved.
But he isn’t. It’s real. He’s not here. I’m really sorry I’m doing this in front of you because you’re the one who actually had to go through it.”
Immediately, Meredith reassured Addison, telling her that Derek was still “there” at the hospital and in his children.
Addison also gave Meredith a piece of career advice, and Mer hugged her formal “rival” before walking out.
Then later, Meredith introduced her kids to Addison, and they ask whether she was one of Derek’s friends.
“Yes, I’m Addison,” she said with tears in her eyes. “But he called me Addie.”
