'Grey's Anatomy' Spoiler: Mer's Bisexual BFF Declares, "Something Did Happen"

Melissageorge_lCircle Nov. 13 on your calendar. That’s the day Alias‘ Melissa George debuts as Grey’s Anatomy‘s newest intern, Sadie. This is noteworthy for several reasons: First off, it’s Melissa George. Duh. Second, she’s Mer’s best friend in the whole world. And last, she’s part of a new breed of extremely hot, young professional females on TV who like to have sex with men and women (i.e. House‘s Thirteen, Bones‘ Angela, Callie on Grey’s, etc.). The big question, of course, is whether those last two things (Sadie’s bisexuality and Mer) ever intersected. Based on my following Q&A with George, I think the answer’s pretty obvious.

AUSIELLO: Tell me about Sadie.
MELISSA GEORGE:
I’m dying to find out more about her because her
behavior is so interesting. She’s a girl that walks on the wild side.
She’s very close with Meredith; they were best friends. They traveled
around the world together. And when Meredith went to work at Seattle
Grace, Sadie went to work at a morgue. I’m dying to know why she
behaves so recklessly. Anyone who behaves like that has to have a lot
of issues.

For the record, is she bisexual or a lesbian?
She just takes anything — whatever walks in front of her. [Laughs]
If it’s a male, she’ll go for it. If it’s a female, she’ll go for it.
She doesn’t think attraction should be [limited] by gender. I sort of
look at people and go, "Wow, how do you live like that?" But she seems
to get a thrill out of shocking people.

The obvious question: Did Mer and Sadie "experiment" back in the day?
We don’t know. But that’s what’s so intriguing: What happened between
these two? It’s brought up a lot [on the show], but we’ve never
revealed what happened.

But something happened.
I think so. There’s a lot of [Mer-Sadie] dialogue like "Don’t tell
them what happened!" So, something did happen, but I’m not sure
what.They obviously traveled together and were very close. Did they
date? Did they not? Did something major happen to them that they swore
they’d never discuss? It could be anything.

How long are you committed to the show for?
I’m here for a while. I’m sort of playing it by ear. I’d love to stay
as long as possible. I’m shooting my fourth one this week, and I don’t
think it’s stopping.

Conventional Grey’s wisdom has you gravitating toward one of
Seattle Grace’s other two bisexual docs, Callie or Erica. Do you know
which one it’ll be?

They haven’t told me, and I’ve been asking them every day, "Which one
am I going to be making out with?" Or not! It could be one of the guys.
I just said yes to Grey’s Anatomy, the greatest show on TV. I
didn’t say, "What do I have to do?" So I’m sort of looking around
going, "Which one is going to be my girl or my guy?"

Last season at this time, there were no bisexual characters on Grey’s. Now there are at least three. Is there something in the water at Seattle Grace?
I’m not sure. Maybe they’re not getting the right victims coming through the door so they’re bored. [Laughs] Bisexuality exists. It’s common. I guess they’re experimenting with it.

So, getting back to the question I posed in the intro: Is it as obvious to you as it is to me that Mer and Sadie dabbled in some, ahem, extracurricular activities back in the day? Or is it just a smokescreen for an even bigger secret they’re harboring (i.e. they killed someone and dumped their body in the Pacific)? Post your theories below!

    Gee, Grey’s Anatomy and EW, thanks so much for continuing the stereotype that bisexuals are nymphomaniacs whoose entire existance is meant to “shock” and titilate straight folks.

    I don’t think Shonda is that creative, there’s no interesting “Gossip Girl” type murder twists, it’s always about relationships and sex. That’s why Grey’s has gotten SOOOOOOOOO boring!!!

  • Wow

    Being Bi doesn’t mean that you take whatever is in front of you. That’s just being a whore.

  • lala

    i was thinking the same maybe a murder is hidden somewhere in their past!!

  • GA Lover

    Meredith isn’t lesbian or bisexual. She loves men. If Rhimes will decide for this crap, I’m done. It’s sad because I love MerDer this season.

  • acrylica

    My Goodness, is anything sacred these days??

  • save us

    I hope it isn’t anything sexual. I could vomit. I couldn’t watch Meredith with the same eyes. And people will start to feel sorry for Derek again. UGH!
    Give me a break, Shonda!

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA best comment EVER

  • Ashleigh

    Haha, this could be interesting. Sadie totally sounds like the Georgina Sparks to Meredith’s Serena van der Woodsen.

  • sarah

    People are speculating about a sexual thing because Sadie is bisexual. It can be many other things for me. And I agree, Meredith isn’t bisexual. They were best friends and they can have some other secrets together. Shonda won’t touch her power couple with another stupid storyline.

    Muppetz, I go to an all-girls school, and sorry, but girls like that EXIST, everywhere you go. There are indeed some girls at my school who take anything they can get, and it’s not a bad stereotype; there just exists ppl in the world who are both sexually promiscuous and open-minded.

  • Dan

    WOW
    Finally a window into Meredith’s past. I love this. I want to know more about Meredith and Sadie might be the way.
    I doubt it’s as simple as her and Mer getting it on, I think this is much much bigger. since shes in for 4 epis so far.. so this is HUGE.
    GO Meredith.
    I love this character.
    And I love Ellen Pompeo.

  • Emma

    People do experiment in college or their young adult years – whenever those two met – so a sexual history between Mere and Sadie isn’t as far-fetched as you’re making it seem. I especially buy that Meredith, with all her issues, would be the one from the cast who had gotten a little wild and experimented sexually in the past, as damaged people are wont to do…at least on television. That doesn’t make her legitimately bisexual, but it’s totally plausible that the two used to have some fun together. After all, lots of people are sincerely bi-curious at some point in their lives.

  • Lucas

    Don’t be silly, people! More than likely it’s something weird and wild but not sexual. It sounds like it’s something Meredith would be ashamed of. Given how many hang ups she has, that could be anything. Anything at all.

    shonda rhimes is so desperate for ratings
