“Choose me. Choose me. Love me.” Meredith said the six words fans would never forget grey’s Anatomy Season 2. The love triangle between Derek, Meredith and Addison is the one that started it all. When Meredith was a young surgical intern at the hospital and fell in love with the head of neurosurgery, fans thought it was a bit inappropriate.
However, viewers did not know that Derek was married. During the season 1 finale, fans met Addison Shepherd with her unforgettable line.
“And you must be the woman who screwed my husband,” she told Meredith.
During Season 2, McDreamy and Addison tried to make things work. But eventually he went back to Meredith. The two realized they were the playoffs for the rest of Dempsey, who ran on the show. Addison went to the spinoff Private exercise and found his love, Jake (Benjamin Bratt).

grey’s Anatomy fans think Addison is in love with her husband, Jake, so she would not send dirty looks to her ex.
“No, Addison would be happy for them, lol,” a fan wrote on Reddit. “She’s happy with Jake.”
