Any fan of Grey’s Anatomy knows that its love stories are epic.
The Seattle Grace team have been falling in and out of love to a Snow Patrol soundtrack for 14 seasons now.
And their love stories are never, well, simple. They usually involve some kind of complicated love triangle, a last minute death bed marriage, and the imminent danger of a bomb threat or plane crash.
To help you reminisce about your favourite ~ most tear-jerking ~ Grey’s Anatomy moments, we’ve ranked the most iconic Seattle Grace couples:
Meredith Grey and Derek Shepherd
Obviously Meredith and Derek were going to top this list.
Their love story was one for the ages, kind of like the Romeo & Juliet of 21st century hospital-based dramas.
There were so many tear-inducing, heart-clutching moments in their story – like when Meredith asked Derek to ‘Pick me. Choose me. Love me’.
When Derek made an outline of their dream house using candles. When Derek proposed in the elevator at Seattle Grace.

They also faced a whole lot of heartbreak together – miscarriages, a shooting, that time Meredith almost intentionally drowned herself.
Their love story didn’t exactly have a happy ending – in season 11 Derek died.
But before he died, Derek realised that Meredith was the most important thing in his life and that the most important day of his life was when he first met her in that bar.
