Grey’s Anatomy has been on the air for more than a decade. In all its years of airing, viewers have said hello and goodbye to their favorite characters. While some introduced characters resonated well with audiences, fans felt like others were somewhat irrelevant to the story.

The two lost touch when Maggie moved to Seattle but reconnected when they attended the same medical conference in Los Angeles. After exchanging pleasantries, Winston confessed that he always had a massive crush on Maggie while working together at Tufts.

Winston told Maggie that he wanted to pursue a relationship with her. He even asked Maggie to move to Boston with him, or him to Seattle with her. Ultimately the two decided to put their hot romance on hold, and they each went back to their respective lives. Up until August 2020, actor Anthony Hill had a recurring role on the show but got promoted to series regular.
