In the British House of Cardsthere is a distinctly creepy relationship between Francis Urquhart 53 at the beginning of the series and Mattie Storin 23 or Ser Jorah Mormont is a middle-aged knight, sentenced to death for slavery and living in exile, who starts serving and advising teenaged Daenerys Targaryen, an exiled princess whose family was murdered during Robert Baratheon's rebellion.
Jorah was working as a spy for Varys, King Robert's spymaster, but he grows to genuinely respect and admire Daenerys. However -- so far, at least -- one wonderfully married couple stands out among the rest: Miranda Bailey and Ben Warren. After Miranda's own toxic first marriage, Ben was truly the breath of fresh air that she needed in her life. Optimistic and supportive and always interested in her point of view, Ben has always been shown as the perfect partner to balance Bailey's obsessive neuroses and incredibly driven demeanor.
In the past, Ben had been a medical resident in California, which posed a challenge to the couple as he was forced to commute back and forth between California and Seattle. Nevertheless, they married, and he has been nothing short of a wonderful father to her son, Tuck.
In recent episodes, however, Bailey has been shown to be struggling with Ben's decision to become a firefighter, as he is now the lead of the spinoff firefighter series Station We can only hope that these two make it through whatever it is Shondaland intends to throw their way. The relationship between Preston Burke and Cristina Yang was one of the series' earliest and most passionate. Despite rules in place about interns and residents becoming romantically involved, the two found themselves drawn to one another despite themselves and began to engage in a secret fling with one another.
Their brief involvement with one another resulted in Cristina becoming pregnant -- but before she even knew what she wanted to do, she found herself passing out, learning that it was an ectopic pregnancy that would have to be aborted. After the heartbreaking way their first attempt at a relationship ended, the two decided to give it a proper try, realizing that they cared for one another far more deeply and moving in together early in season 2.
When Burke was shot and found himself struggling with a tremor in his hand as a result of the damage, Cristina helped him during his operations, serving as his support and guiding him. They were brilliantly matched, totally compatible, and even intended to be married by the end of season 3.
However, due to Isaiah Washington's departure from the series, Burke was written to leave her at the altar. Years later, though, upon Sandra Oh's own departure from the show, the couple had a reunion of sorts, as Burke invited Cristina to Zurich to serve as his replacement in the position he was vacating. Credit should especially be given to the almost saintly Adele, who stood by Richard's side for much of his life despite being aware of his infidelity. Even as she knew about her husband's unfaithfulness, she chose to stand by him, because she loved him and knew -- or, at the very least, could only hope- - that he would choose to stand by her in return.
Yet even as she stuck with him through all the emotional pain he caused her, she ultimately left him upon his refusal to retire when she asked him to. Adele would learn that she was pregnant with Richard's child, despite being well into her middle age, but ultimately, she would lose the baby. Medical tragedies would continue to test the couple's commitment to one another, as Adele would soon be diagnosed with Alzheimer's, even eventually forgetting Richard altogether.
He continued to visit her whenever he could once she had been placed in medical care, but even that would not last long as Adele soon passed away due to a heart attack as a result of an aneurysm. Following her demise, Richard attended the wedding of Ben and Bailey, reflecting on his own wedding with Adele and imagining the two of them dancing to "My Funny Valentine.
But from the moment their story began, it was always clear that Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd were destined to be something so much more. It took them a few gripping, tense seasons to get to that point, given all the soapy drama that the series threw their way. However, by the time the relationship affectionately known as MerDer came together as a real couple, their place as the rightful reigning couple in the series had been well solidified.
Over the course of their relationship, they would overcome many obstacles, which allowed them to reach many of the requisite milestones for important television couples. But every milestone they reached, they handled in their own way.
Whether it was their Post It note wedding ceremony, the decision to adopt little Zola and the second hurried wedding that came with it, or their attempts to navigate working in different locations and long distance trips, they always handled everything as a team, with unique heart and warmth. In the later years, they faced more difficulties than ever before, realizing that, at times, their dreams lay at odds with one another.
However, no matter how difficult that may have been, nothing can compare to how senselessly Derek was killed off in the name of revitalizing the show. It's safe to say, at this point, that without his character, and this core relationship, around, the show has never felt quite the same. The remaining doctors are left stranded in the woods waiting for rescue, with a devastated Meredith crying profusely and Mark refusing to let go of Lexie's hand.
Season 9 onwards[ edit ] In season 9the remaining surgeons are rescued from the wilderness days later, and Lexie's body is returned to Seattle.
Lexie Grey - Wikipedia
Mark subsequently makes a clean break with Julia, stating that he had always only truly loved Lexie. Mark is soon placed on life support due to the extensive internal injuries he sustained during the plane crash and, as determined by his will, the machines keeping him alive are eventually turned off as he showed no signs of waking after 30 days. After Mark's death, flashbacks of several moments in his life showed him being videotaped at Callie and Arizona's wedding; at the end of his congratulations speech, Mark declares that Lexie was the partner he wanted to grow old and dance with at their granddaughter's wedding.
When the remaining survivors of the plane crash pool their compensation money to purchase the hospital, they agree to rename it "Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital" in tribute to Lexie and Mark. Following Lexie and Mark's deaths, series producer Shonda Rhimes mused regarding the pair's relationship: Their love remains true. But I have had such a great time. Following Isaiah Washington 's departure who portrayed Preston Burkeit was reported that show's executives were planning on adding new cast members, such as Lexie.
It felt like she could be Meredith's sister, but she had a depth that was very interesting. This was granted by Rhimes, though the actress returned in mid-October. In MayRhimes revealed why she decided to have Lexie die: She was an important member of my Grey's family. This was not an easy decision. But it was a decision that Chyler and I came to together. We had a lot of thoughtful discussion about it and ultimately we both decided this was the right time for her character's journey to end.
As far as I'm concerned, Chyler will always remain a part of the Shondaland family and I can't wait to work with her again in the future. I met with Shonda [Rhimes] and we worked together to give Lexie's story appropriate closure. I am very lucky to have worked with this amazing cast and crew for five seasons. My experience on Grey's Anatomy is something that I will treasure for the rest of my life.
I want to take this time to say thank you to the fans. Your unconditional love and support have made these last five years very special for me. I look forward to my next chapter and I hope you will continue to follow me on my journey. And she's here to stay. I love that she's a bit of a dork. Being a dork myself, I am fond of the girls with verbal diarrhea.
Because it's not easy to keep all your words in — believe me.
In her early appearances, it was learned that Lexie has a photographic memorywhich she applied to her surgical career. She decided that she could live with being Alex's plaything, no strings attached, but when push came to shove, and [Karev's ex-girlfriend] came back for a booty call or two, she showed her true Grey colors and couldn't continue with the emotionless sex.
She has, however, made considerable strides in her relationship with Meredith. Series writer, Stacy McKee, commented on this: It must run in the family — because Lexie, though she's very different from Meredith in many many ways, in this one way — they seem to be exactly alike.
Meredith and Lexie both want to succeed. They want to be strong. They want to feel normal. They want, so much, to be whole. But it's a struggle — a genuine struggle for them. Sometimes, they have to fake it. In her early appearances, she maintained a friendship with George O'Malley, until developing romantic feelings towards him.
