Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) reunited with Nick (Scott Speedman) while she was in Minnesota.

To those who don't remember, Nick first appeared in the medical drama in Season 14. At the time, Meredith was Nick's doctor, and she saved his life.

During their reunion, Nick expressed his desire to go out with Meredith, but the latter made it clear that she's in some kind of relationship with Hayes (Richard Flood).

Ahead of the premiere, ABC kept Speedman's return to the show under wraps. But we now know that he's been promoted to series regular.

This means that his character, Nick will appear in more storylines alongside Meredith. And there's always hope for the two to get together romantically.

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, Jo has not taken care of herself. To say that she looks disheveled seems like an understatement.

But during one of her most difficult moments, Link once again proved that he has her back.

So, it's safe to say that a lot of Grey's Anatomy fans must be shipping for Jo and Link to be a couple in the upcoming episodes. But as audiences also know, relationships don't come this easy in Shondaland.

After all, the lead character went to Minnesota to meet with her late mom Ellis Grey's (Kate Burton) friend, David Hamilton (Peter Gallagher). The latter suffers from Parkinson's Disease, and he wants Meredith to help him find a cure.

Meredith is reluctant to accept the job because she knows what it would entail. So, Richard and Bailey are understandably worried.

In Grey's Anatomy Season 18 Episode 1, Richard hired a new doctor. But to his surprise, Dr. Lind didn't want to continue working at Grey Sloan because she thinks the other residents are incompetent.

Richard told Dr. Lind that he will make sure to train his residents so that they can make up for the entire year of learning that they lost due to COVID-19.

In Grey's Anatomy Season 18 Episode 2, Richard will make it his mission to not only hire the best doctors but to make sure that all the residents at Grey Sloan are great at what they are specializing in.
