I can tell you that I've shot a few scenes, although I don't know where they're going to go, but I have shot a few scenes, and I'm very happy and excited with the way this is unfolding.”
Pompeo pointed out that she is excited for Meredith as her character will soon be seeing happiness and light after the death of her husband. She added, “I hope we get to keep going to down that path.”
