William Thorpe

Grey's Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

Grey’s Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

Portrayed by Scott Elrod, the writers wasted another opportunity to explore Meredith’s relationship with the Oncologist. Back in season 12, Meredith struck up a romance with Will after the pair hit it off when they worked on a case together. However, things ended when Meredith told him that she wasn’t ready to be in a relationship.

Whilst Will told Meredith that he would wait for her, he hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Meredith has had several other relationships since then, so it looks as if there are no other plans to bring him back. However, fans would have liked to have gotten to know the surgeon more because he seemed like a really good guy.

Carina Deluca

Grey's Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

Grey’s Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

Carina Deluca has to be one of the most underrated characters to ever walk the halls of Grey-Sloan. Portrayed by Stefania Spampinato, Carina was introduced in season 14 as Deluca’s oldest sister and the newest OB/GYN attending. She struck up a romance with Arizona before the Peds surgeon left for New York.

However, since then, Carina has not had a chance to shine. Always in the background, fans have seen how great she is at her job. She has also proven to be a supportive sibling and helps Deluca whenever she can. Yet, we don’t know much about her. It would be great to see Carina get her own arc.

Joe the Bartender

Grey's Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

Grey’s Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

In every fan’s hearts, there is a special place reserved for Joe. Portrayed by Steven W. Bailey, Joe was an intricate part of Grey’s Anatomy, running the Emerald City Bar, where the surgeons frequently drink. He would also lend an ear to our favorite surgeons and help them with their problems.

Other than the fact that Joe and his partner, Walter, are parents to twin girls, fans hardly know anything about him. One mystery being why no one knows his second name? Another question being about where he has been for the past nine years? He doesn’t even get mentioned anymore. Someone should start a petition to bring him back.

Dahlia Qadri

Grey's Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

Grey’s Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

Another wasted opportunity was when Bailey fired Dahlia Qadri. Portrayed by Sophia Taylor Ali, Dahlia was a prospering surgical resident who would often be seen helping Meredith and Jackson on their cases. However, the resident was fired after she stood up to Bailey for firing Meredith when most residents came to learn from her.

With Helm and Levi the only remaining interns, it seemed a little pointless to bring a fresh wave of characters when the writers never fully invested in their development. For the three seasons she was in, the only fact we knew about Dahlia was that she grew up in Utah. She never got a storyline of her own and she hardly got any screen time outside of the hospital. With her new job in Michigan, it doesn’t seem like she will return.

Megan Hunt

Grey's Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

Grey’s Anatomy: 5 Supporting Characters Who Deserved More Screen Time

Is it possible to be able to bring Megan Hunt back? For years, fans have listened to tales about the war hero and what an amazing woman she was. So when Owen found out that they had found his sister, everyone was excited. However, fans did hope that they would have seen her for more than 8 episodes.

For instance, fans would have liked to see how Megan met Riggs and what they were like in medical school. It also seemed a little strange that no one made Megan see a therapist after she was held captive for a decade. Let not forget all the sibling bonding moments Owen has been robbed off. Abigail Spencer deserved to be promoted to series regular.
