Pompeo’s hair was parted in the middle and flowed freely down her back and over her shoulders. In some photos she was seen holding a red encased phone and a black handbag.

The scenario called for a display of affection between the actors at an outdoor venue.

The pair was seen laughing and looking into each other’s eyes as they cradled one another close and cosied up for kisses. 

Their onscreen chemistry was palpable through the snapshots.

The show delivered a shocking twist by bringing Speedman back as a new series regular after he had been a memorable guest star in the past.

The English actor played Dr. Nick Marsh in the Season 15 episode One Day Like This that aired in March 2018.

He portrayed a transplant surgeon who was treated at Grey Sloan hospital when he came to pick up a liver for his patient at the Mayo Clinic, then collapsed due to a blood clot.

He returned in September’s season 18 premiere.

Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff spoke with Deadline about how the development of Marsh’s reemergence will move forward.

‘He’s a traveling transplant surgeon. He goes to pick up organs, and things, and he’s got his whole life, and she’s got her whole life, and we’ll see what happens,’ Vernoff teased. 

Vernoff confirmed that Speedman will be a series regular for this entire season, but she wouldn’t commit to anything further than that.
