Meredith is the main protagonist of Grey’s Anatomy. She is the head of general surgery at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Meredith has had a few love interests, and she gets married to one of them during the series. However, fans noticed that there is one relationship that has lasted longer than the others. 

On Reddit, users joked about how the character is wearing the same Dartmouth shirt she had in the beginning. The thread’s original poster displayed an image showing Meredith in season one and season 15 with the shirt. Someone commented that show creator Shonda graduated from Dartmouth. 

“Just like Cristina and her Stanford sweat pants! She even apparently took it when she left the show,” one user wrote. 

Another Reddit user pointed out that another character mentions Meredith’s Dartmouth shirt was ratty. However, it survived just fine this whole time. The state of the clothing may be due to the wardrobe department having multiples of the same shirt. 

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ has had significant changes since its first season

Grey’s Anatomy follows the life of Meredith Grey while she works at the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. The show starts with her getting accepted into the surgical residency program. She works alongside other physicians like Cristina Yang, Izzie Stevens, and Alex Karev. 

During her internship, Meredith and her colleagues get overseen by senior resident Miranda Bailey. The story portrays the struggle of the characters as they try to balance hectic work lives with their personal ones. At some point, Meredith gets into a relationship with Derek. 

The series has been airing for almost 16 years, and there have been significant changes over the seasons. Meredith became the Chief of General Surgery and is a mother of three children. In season 16, Alex leaves Seattle to live a life with Izzie after divorcing Jo. 

Another original cast member that left the show is Sandra Oh. She played Cristina, who moves to Switzerland for a job opportunity in season 10. It is unlikely that the character will return for a cameo since the actress has moved on from the series. 

What can viewers expect for the show’s newest season?

Currently, Grey’s Anatomy is airing episodes for season 17. It returned in November 2020 after a hiatus due to the pandemic. There are six episodes out so far, and the show went on a holiday break in December 2020. The series will resume on March 4, 2021

The showrunner confirmed that there are going to be fewer episodes this season, but viewers can expect to be on the edge of their seats. In the series, the characters are trying to manage the COVID-19 outbreak. Unfortunately, Meredith ended up testing positive for the virus. 

Viewers got to see the return of Derek for the first time since his death years ago. However, he only appeared in Meredith’s dream after she collapsed. Derek’s actor confirmed that he will return again sometime this year. 

Meredith will continue fighting the coronavirus, and viewers will see what the future holds for her. There also is a possibility that there will be a crossover with Station 19
