15 Couples From Grey's Anatomy We're Still Crying Over
Mark Sloan urges Jackson to look after Lexie, which he does and Lexie and Jackson become a couple after Mark Sloan get Callie Torres pregnant and Lexie is. They both moved on to other relationships, but we sure enjoyed the idea of these two. It's too bad that April was secretly in love with Jackson and poor Matthew had to get his heart broken. And Mark was able to find an even better partner in Lexie. . Okay, so maybe they weren't relationship goals. George O'Malley (T.R. Knight) and Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh) The only thing that held this relationship together was Cristina applauding April's turn as the Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) and Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams).
That is, until Callie made the difficult decision to amputate Arizona's leg.
We rank them as one of the best, however, because it seemed like they were finally starting to work through their issues, when Callie suddenly decided that there was no coming back from the years of problems they had. While we totally understand her decision, it did seem a bit hasty and misguided, given everything they'd been through. We still believe in the power of this couple, and might even see hope for them reuniting in the future, even if we don't see it on the show.
Cristina Yang and Preston Burke Considering Burke was one of Cristina's great loves, it's hard to picture them as one of the worst couples. However, there was very little in this romance that was healthy for either person involved. In reality, Burke was highly controlling and manipulative. He kept forcing Cristina into decisions that she wasn't fully ready to make, but that she was willing to do because she loved him so much.
He didn't respect her for who she was, and she didn't have a huge respect for him beyond his incredible talents as a surgeon, either.
When he was dealing with his shaky hand, Cristina was just as much to blame for manipulating him into lying about it and hiding it for the sake of his career. In truth, they were a highly toxic romance, and Burke leaving Cristina at the altar was probably the best thing he ever did for her. No matter how much they've tried to fight it, they always seem to find their way back to each other.
They might not always be on the same page, but they're able to put their differences aside for the most part and create the best possible life for their child. Not only that, but they honestly have each other's best interests in mind, even though they've fought through some pretty traumatic events that could easily breed bitterness between the two of them.
They might not end up together, but we'll always be big fans of their love story. Amelia Shepherd and Owen Hunt There's no denying that this relationship is an actual disaster. Amelia was always lukewarm about everything to do with Owen—she almost ran away on her wedding day for goodness sake—and poor Owen finally thought that he found someone he could build a life with, only to have her completely flip the script on him as soon as they said "I do," and then effectively ghost him.
Amelia has some deep issues that she needs to work through before she pulls other people into her mess, and she should have just left Owen alone. Also, how many more times is Owen going to fall for someone who wants the exact opposite of what he wants? Because it's just getting sad at this point. However, most of their problems seem to come from not handling outside influences in the right manner, instead of the two of them having issues with each other.
They have a problem using their words to work through their problems, but they genuinely love and support each other, even when they're incredibly angry at the other person. We're definitely rooting for this couple. What happens when the best part of the story is the breakup?
Ben and Miranda are the epitome of relationship goals. Even on their wedding day, when Miranda got tied up operating on Adele Webber, he stayed and helped her, rather than getting upset. Ben also helped her through her OCD flare up and has always been there for her, when normally she has to be there for other people. Izzie and Denny Almost all fans know the story of Denny Duquette, the heart transplant patient that Izzie fell for. At first, it was nice to see Izzie have someone to banter with, but it was easy to see where the chain events were leading.
Izzie had feelings for Denny and managed to keep it from Bailey, but the group of interns knew. Possibly the worst part of the relationship is that Izzie was willing to throw away her career for him. The infamous cutting of the LVAD wire shows that, as much as she was trying to save Denny, she was trying to save something for herself as well.
The entire turn of events and relationship is toxic and not at all how love should be portrayed. But he was a great man, and he deserved everything in the end. She also had the ability to tell him wrong, and for him to believe it. Catherine, so far, has been the only woman able to keep Richard in line.
While that mostly is a testament to Catherine, it also shows that couples work as a team. George loved Meredith from afar from the beginning.
Jackson and Lexie - Grey's Anatomy
He did everything he could to get her attention while she had her eyes on Derek — a classic story of the good guy who can't let go of woman who just wants to be friends.
He finally got his chance, when Meredith went on her spree of sleeping with people. George took this as a front, and walked out, leaving Meredith alone.
Their relationship became estranged after that for a while. This couple really did show there were many other people that she could have been with, but that Derek was The One.
However, April did persuade him to change his mind on one of his patients and do what Meredith had suggested. Impressed with her, he asked her out to dinner. After the dinner, when April told everyone what had been happening, they told her that he thought this was a relationship.
