'Grey's Anatomy' Starts Production: What Does Season 16 Hold for Meredith & DeLuca? (PHOTOS)

Production has begun on Grey's Anatomy Season 16, and the first photos should have you wondering what exactly is going to happen with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti).

At the end of Season 15, DeLuca had taken the blame for Meredith's insurance fraud and was in prison. However, as the finale ended, Meredith visited him and told him she loved him and would turn herself in. We have to wait until the new season to see if she does and just what happens next with that storyline.

Here's what we'd like to see go down when the ABC medical drama returns this fall.

However, neither character is in prison in the photos that both Pompeo and Gianniotti posted to their Instagram accounts from the first day back. In fact, things look relatively normal for their characters, even if we don't know yet how long Bailey (Chandra Wilson) firing Meredith, Alex (Justin Chambers), and Richard (James Pickens Jr.) will stick.
