Baby Girls and Morgan/Garcia ‘shippers have been a bit on edge since last year’s introduction of Derek Morgan’s girlfriend Savannah, played by Rochelle Aytes, but Shemar Moore is loving the decision to finally show a more romantic side of his character!
In a 2013 interview with TV Guide, Moore is asked about how he feels regarding Morgan’s relationship on the show, and his response was “It’s about time!
"I am not," she told the host, while her frenemies on the opposite couch cast some heavy side-eye. "Well, you hooked me up with somebody and we chat from now and then," she offered, coyly. " Andy implored."We'll see..." she answered in her trademark mysterious way.
Rather than bringing her into the show by having the two meet on screen, a bit of mystery is able to surround Savannah as we learn more about her through Shemar’s performance as Derek.
One thing that we do know about Savannah is that she is a doctor, and that as two professionals trying to make a relationship work between one another, things aren’t always easy.
Savannah is mentioned at the beginning of The Inspiration, where Morgan had to cancel a date and explained she was being understanding.
She works as a doctor at Bethesda General Hospital.
