Start preparing couple names because there’s a new one on Grey’s Anatomy.
Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) and Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) are officially together — and they proved it with a steamy make out scene. Pierce hosted a game night to introduce everyone to her new boyfriend, but it turned out he had a wife.
“I’ve never slept with a married man,” Maggie said.
Jackson was obviously concerned but couldn’t show emotion because the woman he was seeing was there. As Maggie was pouring a glass of wine, she heard a knock on the door and it was Jackson. He said it’s going to be complicated. And all Grey’s fans probably collectively said “Duh” because the two are step siblings. Richard Weber (James Pickens Jr.) is married to Catherine Avery (Debbie Allen). At least they’ll know the parents will approve of the relationship.
The formation of the sexy new couple come just in time. Sarah Drew, who plays Jackson’s ex-wife April Kepner, is set to leave the series at the end of its current season. Jessica Capshaw, who plays Arizona Robbins, will also depart. The two have been series regulars since seasons seven and five, respectively.
Here’s how the fans reacted on Twitter:
